It’s often talked about which MCU characters deserve their own spin-off show. From Ghostrider in Agents of Shield to Wilson Fisk of Daredevil, there’s plenty of MCU characters that we need more of. Here’s just a small lift of who we’d like to see have their own mini-series:
First on the list, is the Inhuman Joey Gutierrez. Making his appearance on Agents of Shield, Joey struggled to harness his new powers. With the help of AoS, he eventually succeeded and went on to join fellow teammate Daisy Johnson’s Secret Warriors.
Number one reason as to why Joey Gutierrez deserves his own show: the MCU has never had a member of the LGBT front and center. We’ve had supporting characters like Jeri Hogarth in Jessica Jones, but never a lead. Plus, Joey has awesome powers. Who wouldn’t want the ability to melt metal? Ultimately, Joey leaves S.H.I.E.L.D. after being accused of working for Hive (a parasitic Inhuman who founded Hydra). Basically, we need a mini-series of how Joey is doing now – we can’t be left hanging like that!
Not Dethklok (the metal band from Metalocalpse) – Deathlok. Another character appearing in Agents of Shield, Michael Peterson is a cyborg. Automatically, this is cool. A mini-series with Peterson would have the trope of a man seeking retribution. Burdened by the memories of the crimes committed when he was Deathlok, Peterson is man (cyborg) who is constantly being ping-ponged between the Centipede Project and S.H.I.E.L.D. We just need more of him!
If there was one thing the MCUExchange crew could agree on, it’s that we could all use more Howard Stark. First appearing briefly in film footage in the first Iron Man, Tony’s father has been around for the entirety of the MCU. From Captain America: The First Avenger, to the opening of Ant-Man, Howard’s been a massive force in the timeline.
Portrayed by both Dominic Cooper and John Slattery, Howard simply needs his own show. Not only to touch more upon his influence on S.H.I.E.L.D. but to explore the relation between Howard and Tony. It’s obvious they were estranged in life. It’s also obvious he talked a lot about Steve Rogers, which annoyed Tony. Howard’s feelings for his son is something that deserves more screen time and no matter which version, there’s more story to be told.
It’s a good thing Inhumans are in fact getting their own show; perhaps all these Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Inhumans on this list will make appearances. Zabo is the father of Skye (Daisy Johnson) and if being a surgeon to the underworld isn’t interesting enough, he’s also known as Mr. Hyde. If you couldn’t guess, he injects himself with a special serum to make himself stronger. This also makes him super moody and with that, we have a pseudo-Bruce Banner/Hulk situation. Except, Calvin doesn’t turn green.
Every rich entrepreneur needs a faithful butler. Bruce Wayne had Alfred and Howard Stark had Jarvis. Edwin Jarvis to be exact.
Not to be confused with J.A.R.V.I.S. – Tony Stark’s A.I. system who eventually became Vision. J.A.R.V.I.S. was actually originally created for Iron Man as an A.I. to not be a rip-off of Alfred. In the MCU, he is named J.A.R.V.I.S. in memory of Edwin Jarvis.
Formally a member of the British Armed Forces, Jarvis was skilled in hand to hand combat. Not only was he a loving husband, but a faithful companion to both Howard Stark and Peggy Carter. A spin-off mini-series with Jarvis would give us more Howard and more Peggy Carter. And since Agent Carter was unfortunately canceled, we have to get Peggy wherever we can. Not only would a Jarvis centered series give us more insight to the beginning times of S.H.I.E.L.D., but would also reunite the dynamic of the show Agent Carter.
