Another new villain is coming to the popular series ‘Marvel’s Agent’s of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ the news was confirmed this week by ABC and Marvel Studios. The new role will go to Brian Patrick Wade, he will take on the character of Carl “Crusher” Creel, fans may also know him from his other name, the Absorbing Man.
This is a classic villain in every sense of the word, he dates back to the early days of Marvel, having been created by Stan Lee himself. The character already has his debut scheduled as well, he will first appear in the season two premiere, set to air in just a few short weeks.
For those of you that may be new to the Crusher, his powers are rather fun, he can absorb the very properties of anything he comes in contact with, making him elusive and a major threat to the Agents.
Other new faces for this season include Adrianne Palicki as Mockingbird; Kyle MacLachlan as Skye’s (Chloe Bennet) father; Lucy Lawless is coming on board as a S.H.I.E.L.D veteran Isabelle Hartly and Reed Diamond is joining as Daniel Whitehall (Kraken).
The new season will begin shortly, set to start on September 23, 2014.
