Phil Coulson LIVES

There has been rampant speculation as to whether we will see the return of Agent Phil Coulson (if you don’t know who we’re talking about, you don’t belong on this website) in the form of the android Vision if/when he rejoins The Avengers cast, well we now know, so can you.


The show that is coming soon on ABC has had Mr. Coulson attached since its conception and the fandom has been wringing their collective hands wondering if the show (Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) will be taking place before The Avengers itself.


The TV series will be taking place after The Avengers and Phil Coulson is alive. Here’s how:

“In the pilot, it’s revealed Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), the ultimate super spy, faked Agent Coulson’s death on purpose to motivate The Avengers. Some S.H.I.E.L.D. members were in on it (including, possibly, Maria Hill played by Cobie Smulders) but The Avengers were not. Their security clearance wasn’t high enough. Coulson was forced to hold his breath as part of the ruse and that’s a point of contention among his colleagues After the fact, Fury moved him to a remote location until things died down, and then he was reinserted into duty at the time of the show.”

This is no surprise to anyone who really knows how the comic book universe works. Nobody ever TRULY dies in the comic world…at least in the Marvel universe it seems (DC is another story altogether RIP Ted Kord). It just seems a bit silly that Whedon would allow this to happen with his baby. Then again, this is exactly the type of shit that Nick Fury pulls everyday.

I’d hate to be his kid. One day he’d tell you you’re getting a puppy, next thing you know he’s killing it right in front of you so that he doesn’t have to feed it, only to find out months later that he took it to a farm. What an asshole.
