For those of you who managed to make it through the first season of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and were treated to the ever-improving second season, you may have noticed now much of a bad-ass Chloe Bennet (AKA Skye) became as the story progressed. She went from a childish hacker to a full-fledged S.H.I.E.L.D. agent to a woman of massive super powers and the character is much more interested for it. Now, with the third season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. coming up in September, Skye’s character will be taking on even more changes, including a new haircut and a new name. Scroll on for the details.

What better way to celebrate 50 years of SHIELD than with a brand new series of one-shot comics, most of which featuring some of Marvel’s loveliest ladies! What’s even better is that women will be writing some of the comics, which is a win-win on the feminist front! One-shots by ladies, about ladies! And not just any ladies, mind you; these are the kick-ass women of SHIELD. (more…)
When we last left Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D… Well, how do we put this, $#!% was going down! It’s been a long break between episodes and the show left us hanging at such a momentous point, the introduction of the Inhumans. Now, there’s an Inhumans movie on the way, coming soon to a theater near us… In four years. But S.H.I.E.L.D. made a huge leap in continuity relevance by introducing such an essential piece of lore for the development of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe. (You know, because they can’t use the ‘M’ word.) With a little over a week till the return of S.H.I.E.L.D., ABC is now teasing what fate awaits one of the show’s key characters now that what’s Inhuman has been unleashed. (more…)
You can read out recap of last night’s monumentous Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. midseason finale here, but before you go there’s at least one detail we must discuss in full. First though, who would have guessed that this time last year S.H.I.E.L.D. would leave us on the edge our seat like that? The fights! The reveals! The potentially game changing consequences! What a rush! Having eight weeks of Agent Carter crammed in between now and more S.H.I.E.L.D. almost seems like a punishment now (no matter how much you may or may not be looking forward to Agent Carter). Haven’t seen the episode yet? Avert your eyes because we’re about to confirm that Skye is indeed the specific Marvel character she was revealed to be last night…. (more…)
While we may have seen quite the amount of alphabet’s here on NerdBastards, this one puts nothing but a huge smile on my face. Francis Acupan drew some memorable icons that any gamer will recognize. Of course, from this picture, we can see which of the three console company he is a fan of but at least he gave some love to the other two. Check after the jump for a bigger image to see exactly what icon is what since he wrote descriptions of them on the image.
