This week’s Monday Milestone tie-in datafile is none other than the Son of Coul himself, SHIELD Agent Phil Coulson!
When I started this datafile, Coulson wasn’t in the “616” continuity. Then last week I find out he is being introduced along with Nick Fury Jr (who looks suspiciously like Samuel L. Jackson). Initally referred to only as “Cheese”, at the end of the Battle Scars mini-series he was revealed to actually be Phil Coulson. I’m glad he’s coming to the main comics universe.
Now, I haven’t actually read Battle Scars, so this datafile is based purely on Clark Gregg’s portrayal in the Avengers tie-in films. Since Avengers hasn’t been released where I live at the time of this post, some things on the datfile are based on hints that have come out about how Coulson develops. If I really missed something I may make a revised version.
I thought Coulson was an interesting character when he was introduced in Iron Man, but I thought he really developed into an awesome character in the subsequent films. Especially in the “Marvel One-Shots” included on the Blu-Ray releases of Thor and Captain America. After seeing A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Thor’s Hammer how many of you don’t think he would be awesome to play?
The contest winner this week is Shawn Schmitting. Leave a comment on this post with the character you want a datafile for, and I will get it done ASAP.
