With Joss Whedon’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. being firmly set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it’s only logical that it will feature appearances from Marvel characters. Here are 5 lesser known Marvel characters that could make memorable appearances on the show. In addition to these characters, the show will hopefully incorporate many other characters and events from Marvel’s huge history.
Daken is the son of Wolverine and Itsu, and grew up in Japan before moving to the USA to join Norman Osborn’s Dark Avengers, consisting of the Sentry, Venom (Mac Gargan), Bullseye, Moonstone, Noh-Varr, Ares, and Osborn himself as the Iron Patriot.
In a blatant attempt to try and create publicity for a relatively little known character, it was decided that Daken would kill the Punisher, one of Marvel’s A-List characters, by stabbing him in the chest, cutting off both off his arms, decapitating him and kicking his body parts off a rooftop.
What followed was a surprisingly entertaining run in which Daken becomes firmly established as a supporting character within the Marvel Universe.
Possessing his father’s claws and healing factor, but not the Adamantium skeleton, and with the ability to release pheromones to control people’s emotions, Daken is not held back by his father’s sense of morality, and will gladly kill just about anyone that he takes a disliking to, even if they are innocent.
When the Punisher finally gets his revenge on Daken, the reader wants to cheer at how such a detestable character has his backside handed to him.
With Wolverine being one of Marvel’s most well known characters, why not feature a character who is essentially the opposite, to see what would happen if Wolverine did not have a conscience?
