We all pretty much expected that season three of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. would continue the hunt for Jiaying and the other fugitive inhumans, but now thanks to Variety we know that some new key players from the comics will be joining S.H.I.E.L.D.’s cause: the Secret Warriors.
The Secret Warriors are a team of agents with superhuman powers that former S.H.I.E.L.D. director Nick Fury assembled. They were originally introduced in the Secret Invasion tie-in issues of Mighty Avengers, but the Secret Warriors gained the most notoriety as part of a comic series of the same name.
Included among the Warriors is Daisy “Quake” Johnson, better known by Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. fans as Skye (Chloe Bennet).
These individuals have remained mostly hidden due to the Caterpillar initiative (which Coulson briefly discussed with Skye last season).
And speaking of Agent Coulson, he will most likely begin scouring the world this season for inhumans to recruit to his dwindling team. But with these extraordinary powers at large, Agent Coulson surely won’t be the only one tracking down new inhumans.
The Secret Warriors should definitely add some excitement to the upcoming season, which premiers September 29th on ABC!
