My Agents of Shield Confession
I was one of those comic book fans who stopped watching after the first three shows.
Yes. I admit it. I was so disappointed. All of the hype made it sound like we were going to have hot and cold running superheroes, with just a handful of agents running around reacting to the things the superheroes did. There were rumors that we would see Daredevil. Power Man. Iron Fist. Jessica Jones. Kamala Khan. Carol Danvers. Jessica Drew. Basically, that this would be the show that would give us the “B List” Marvel heroes, and the Shield premise was just the way the showrunners would be tying it all together.
Needless to say, that’s not what we got. And as I said up above, I was one of those who turned the channel out of sheer disappointment.
Fast forward a year or so. I’m teaching night classes on the night the show is on, so my DC loving hubby decides he’ll give it a shot. As someone who only goes to Marvel movies because he’s a nice person who likes to like the things I like, he had no preconceived ideas about what it would be and was prepared to just accept it for what it was.
What it was, he said, turned out to be a damn good show.
