Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. - The New Deal television review

It’s been over two years since I sat down to watch an episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. which I was astonished to discover was still on the air. Set in New York City during the early 1930s, features the remaining agents tracking Chronicoms who plan on stopping S.H.I.E.L.D. from ever coming into existence by altering the timeline. The episode has fun with the look of the era, particularly in styling Daisy‘s (Chloe Bennet) hair and clothing. The season premiere also fixes a mistake with the show since it’s inception by having the version of Coulson (Clark Gregg) be a Life Model Decoy for the now dead (again) agent. The choice to allow the LMD to know what it is allows for some internal conflict within the character and also full use of its enhanced strength against the threat of the Chronicoms.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. - Together or Not at All TV review

“Together or Not at All” finally unites most of the time-displaced fugitive Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., if only for part of a single episode as the team will split-up yet again before the episode’s end. We get more of the family turmoil between the whiny Kasius (Dominic Rains) and uppity Faulnak (Samuel Roukin) that mercifully comes to an end with death of the later. In fact, there’s quite a bit of Kree-on-Kree violence as Sinara (Florence Faivre) murders Maston-Dar (Remington Hoffman) despite the fact that the other warrior could have been useful in the capture of Daisy (Chloe Bennet).

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. - Rewind television review

“Rewind” is the first episode of the show’s Fifth Season that I’m relatively happy with (even if it still leaves quite a bit unexplained). Leaving the alternate future, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. rewinds to the moment in which the rest of his team where taken and follows the path of Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) from arrest to finding his way to the future himself. The episode introduces us the alien Enoch (Joel Stoffer as a character pretty much stolen from a Hellboy comic) and a young human (Lexy Kolker) whose hazy vision of the future is responsible for the rest of the cast being thrown decades into the future, despite the fact that their return to the present will undoubtedly change events to make the future they are currently stuck in completely irrelevant.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. - A Life Earned TV review

The misadventures of the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. lost in time and space continues as adapting to their surroundings has negative effects on Mack (Henry Simmons), Daisy (Chloe Bennet) meets the Kree overlords and discovers their plans for Inhumans, May (Ming-Na Wen) gets her ass kicked, and the rest of the team stumbles around the space station for an hour (give or take a few minutes for commercials). One reveal that “A Life Earned” does give us is the identity of the man behind the mask we saw back in the first episode of this season. As to why he’s been avoiding his friends since their arrival… um, that’s less clear.

Infamous Iron Man #12

Infamous Iron Man #12 comic reviewAfter last issue’s reveal of just who has been toying with Doctor Doom this entire time, Infamous Iron Man offers a team-up between Doom and Doctor Strange against Mephisto (who appears quite put out by the idea that Victor von Doom could perhaps redeem himself).

With much of the early panels featuring Mephisto talking directly to the reader and the later panels focused on Sharon Carter and S.H.I.E.L.D. being unable to process what they have just witnessed, Infamous Iron Man leaves things more open-ended than I expected. Realizing that Tony Stark‘s return is a forgone conclusion, just what will happen to the would-be Iron Man when the original returns as part of Marvel Legacy?
