Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. adds Secret Warriors for Season 3

agents of shield secret warriors 1I hinted at it in my review of the second season finale, but Marvel has confirmed we should expect to see a version of the Secret Warriors in the third season of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. In the third season the team will introduce “new friends and foes inspired by” the Secret Warriors comic series.

In the comics the Secret Warriors was a team of superpowered individuals who were the sons and daughters of classic Marvel characters. The team was assembled by Nick Fury who had figured out that there was something up with S.H.I.E.L.D. and a connection to Hydra.

The series ran for 28 issues and ran from 2009 to 2011. The team was introduced in the Secret Invasion and their own series was plotted by Brian Michael Bendis with Jonathan Hickman on writing duties.

In the aftermath of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s battle with Jiaying and the Inhumans, Director Coulson will search the world for more powered people and assemble an extraordinary new team to deal with threats unlike the world has ever seen. However, the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will soon find out they’re not the only ones tracking down these new Inhumans.

Marvel will be promoting the team at San Diego Comic-Con. From Thursday, July 9 through Saturday, July 11, S.H.I.E.L.D. ambassadors will be searching the convention for the most dedicated fans and rewarding them with limited edition “Secret Warriors” pins. Follow @AgentsofSHIELD on Twitter to see what the S.H.I.E.L.D. ambassadors are up to.

Those lucky enough to be recruited to the “Secret Warriors at Comic-Con will complete their first mission by posting a photo of themselves wearing the pin to social media using #SHIELDSecretWarriors. Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” cast members will select some of their favorite photos, which could get posted to the show’s official Twitter page, @AgentsOfSHIELD.

Marvel will reveal more at the “Marvel Television Presents” panel at San Diego Comic-Con on Friday, July 10 from 3:00 PM – 4:15PM in Ballroom 20.

The new season premieres on Tuesday, September 29 at 9/8c on ABC.

  • I am very optimistic about this! SHIELD has been a pretty good show so far but I want to see it really stretch it’s legs some.
