If you're an Avengers and/or Superhero nerd like I am, then you would have been really excited when you heard about the Agents of Shield TV show a couple of months ago. I have really enjoyed the show so far and I love all of the references they have made about both the comic books and the movies. However what I like the most about the show is the possibilities that it has. Most people know that the Marvel Universe is absolutely huge! It's not just the Avengers or X-Men, there is so much more. The show has the capability to bring in characters from the Marvel universe that have not been in the movies (yet). Don't expect to see anybody from the X-Men stories (unless you count Quicksilver or Scarlet Witch) but I would love to see the show introduce characters that could possibly lead up to future movies. Here are some examples I was thinking of off the top of my head:

1. Heroes for Hire

People have been hoping that we see Luke Cage and/or Iron Fist on the big screen, so why not start on the small screen? I picture it as the team on agents of shield hear about two super-powered people who are going around committing heroic deeds for money. Then they get themselves in a situation that they can't get out of alone, and they need Coulson and the agents for help. It's very easy for me to picture and I would absolutely love to see it.

2. She-Hulk

She-Hulk is a perfect character to bring in because her origin would be very easy to implement in the show. For those of you who don't know, She-Hulk (real name Jennifer Walters) is Bruce Banner's cousin who was was shot by a crime boss and was saved by being given a blood transfusion from Bruce. As a result she gained a small version of his powers. I could see this happening in the show (although they probably couldn't get Mark Ruffalo for the show so they would just have his blood "on file"). The agents would hear about a "female Hulk" destroying things in a town or something (although it would turn out to all be an accident due to the fact that she can't control her powers yet). It's a very easy and awesome thing to have in the show and I hope we see it.

3. Young Avengers

Now I am going to start that I don't think that ALL of the Young Avengers will be seen considering that two of them are the complicated children of the Scarlet Witch. If you want to know why they are complicated I recommend you look up the characters Wiccan and Speed. however the Young Avengers are a very varied group and I think that it is very possible we see some of them in Agents of SHIELD. I'm thinking that it will happen like this: There are a few kids who discover that they have superpowers and they all idolize the Avengers, so they want to follow in their footsteps and become heroes. They then call themselves, you guessed it, the Young Avengers. I suspect it to be similar to what I said about the Heroes for Hire, and the Young Avengers will get in a situation that they need help to get out of and once again, Coulson to the rescue.

I would absolutely love to see all of these characters in the show and possibly in future movies and I think it has a chance of happening. Feel free to comment and let me know what you think of what I've said and maybe give some ideas of other characters you would like to see in the Agents of SHIELD show.
