In past seasons of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the team has fought the hordes of Hydra, gone to war with the Inhumans, and contended with the extraterrestrial god Hive in the form of renegade agent Grant Ward, now in season four something very different is coming their way – the vengeance of Ghost Rider. I’ll update our mission status, after the jump.
Created by John Byrne in 1989 in the West Coast Avengers comics series as comic relief, the Great Lakes Avengers have bounced around the Marvel Universe in different forms ever since.

There are a lot of concepts flying around in this episode of Avengers: Ultron Revolution, from the appearance of the second Black Widow, to the Natasha/Hulk relationship, to the re-emergence of Hydra as a major threat to the Avengers. It seems the comics, animation, and cinematic universes converge on this one. Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on “Seeing Double.”
As we saw in the last episode of Avengers: Ultron Revolution, while tracking down future technology, Earth’s Mightiest Heroes came face-to-face with Kang the Conqueror. After threatening New York, Kang retreats to the future, dragging the entire team, except for Thor, with him. Meet me after the time jump for my thoughts on “Into the Future.”
Folks who know me know that Kang the Conqueror is my favorite Avengers villain. They also know I believe that he is their ultimate archenemy, not Ultron, not the Masters of Evil, not Zodiac, and certainly not Thanos or the Squadron Supreme, but Kang. Here in the twelfth episode of the third season, he finally makes his Avengers Assemble debut. Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on “The Conqueror.”
