Marvel are not just trying to tie Agents of SHIELD in with [Captain America: Civil War](tag:994409), but the upcoming comic as well! If you're one of the people that have stuck by Shield, even after the abysmal first season, then you know the show is delivering on all cylinders now. It'll never be compared with Jessica Jones and Daredevil in the same conversation about great television, but there's an entertainment factor that the show crushes, just like Coulson did to Ward's chest.

Last night, Daisy and the team ran into an Inhuman named Charles. He has the power to see a someone's death before it hits the fan. Some odd reason this guy that he touched in the beginning of the show -- had to call Quake and talk to her before Charles was kidnapped by Hydra (just like in his vision). This is a lot to explain, but supposedly every Inhuman have their powers for a reason; they need to fill a certain gap in the evolutionary chain to further enhance their people (I think, I'm pretty sure). Then Daisy touches his hand at the last possible second and she's gifted by one of his visions. The team spends all day planning their mission to rescue him before his death. What's funny, before all this went down, Fitz said this mission was complete and utter bull.

Fitz basically said that this is the future and cannot be changed by anyone, any event, or anything. He said that us puny mortals cannot comprehend 4-D (time) thinking and he explained it fairly well (I'm not good at science, but I think I got it). We're like one strip of paper (2-D and how this is how we perceive time), and stacked together to make a cube. Time is like a black sharpie mark that touches every piece of paper. When time is happening things look different to us, but no matter what, that line never moves. Everything that's going to occur -- has already happened and it's set in heat-resistant Vibranium.

Everything that Daisy saw in her vision, came to fruition in the show. Fitz was right, there's nothing you can do to change the future. One must wonder; how accurate will the visions be in the upcoming Civil War II? Daisy was confused with what she saw and it was an interesting twist for the show. Now, this isn't the only comic book show that meddles with time-travel. I watch The Flash and they have a different set of rules (I think) for time-traveling. We're not going to go over The Flashes' show because he can actually travel back into time and it gives me a headache. All right, cool, cool I get it -- actually no I don't. Check out the synopsis for Marvel's Civil War II:

“New York, NY—March 17th, 2016 — The Marvel Universe is at a crossroad. A new power has emerged, one that can predict the future—for good or ill— and the heroes of the Marvel Universe are faced with a choice: Wield the power of “predictive justice” to change the future as they see fit, or reject it and allow tomorrow to unfold unaltered. Protect the future. Change the future. Choose your side.”

There's two things to take from this synopsis; that whatever they see is not set in stone to begin with (unlike Charles) -- or the comic contradicts the show. Marvel Comics' best interest is simply to show love to both sides of Marvel Entertainment. So, I have a hard time believing that that the show and Marvel Comics are not in contact with one another. Oh yeah, What Charles can do sounds almost identical to what's happening in Civil War II, right?

I hate time-traveling for the most part, but I have to understand that it is a staple of Comic Books. I don't know what to think about one show telling me it's impossible to change the future and then the comics making a huge event about changing the future. There are more people that watches the show, then people who read the comics. It's just something that bugged me -- and you'll probably feel something entirely different.(Wait, is that the point? No) I'm not sure if they're going to explain it like Star Trek and have alternate timelines and will constantly changing the future like Captain Marvel wants to do have additional side effects (Timey-Wimey type sh*t)?

Oh yeah, there's a Space Ship in the last vision that Charles so graciously gives Daisy. It's blowing up and it makes me wonder something totally different. Not, is this how H.I.V.E. is going to bite the big one, or is he going to try to spread Terrigen Mist all over the world (and fail)? Also, I can't wait for the big showdown between Lash and H.I.V.E -- I think it'll be awesome and should make for an amazing season finale.

But with all these Inhumans popping-up --this makes me marvel at how truly separate the Movies and Television shows are. I'm hard to follow (sorry) , but the show already did the event that spread the Terrigen Crystals (what changes humans to Inhumans) across the land with fish oil. That's huge, I mean if mutants just popped-up everywhere -- you would wonder why The Avengers wouldn't have anything to say about all the people with these sweet new powers?

I'm always curious what you have to say about whatever subject I'm writing about and I would love to hear from you. What I'm trying to say; you should watch ABC's Agents of Shield because it's amazing and that's for the people that ignored the spoilers warning! I will be watching and reading both A.O.S and Civil War II to see if what I'm saying will have any merit in the future? (I hate time-traveling)
