Suit up, Agents, because Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is coming back this fall, and the Secret Warriors have been confirmed to come for season three!
According to Marvel, the aftermath of the war with Jiaying will see Director Coulson search the world for more powered people and assemble a team that will deal with threats unlike the world has ever seen. Little did they know that they are not the only ones looking to track and gather these Inhumans.
During the two-hour finale of its second season, fans and viewers saw the end of a short-lived war between S.H.I.E.L.D. and a group of Inhumans led by Jiaying, Skye’s (Chloe Bennet) mother. The final minutes of the finale episode saw Director Coulson handing over a folder to Skye, talking about his interest of tracking down other Inhumans. The folder was labelled “Catterpillars”.
In the comics, the Secret Warriors is a group of superpowered agents led and formed by Nick Fury, along with Daisy Johnson. They were introduced in Mighty Avengers #13 and made their debut as a team on Secret Invasion #3, in 2008. It is notable that Skye’s birth name in the series is Daisy Johnson.
Notable members of the Secret Warriors include Quake (Daisy Johnson), Phobos (Alexander Aaron), Hellfire (J.T. James), Druid (Sebastian Druid), Slingshot (Yo-Yo Rodriguez), and Stonewall (Jerry Sledge). In the comics, there are a total of three “Catterpillar” teams.
