It is now confirmed that Coulson and Skye are in the process of assembling a team of super-powered S.H.I.E.L.D. agents to handle… unique… situations! This team will take its inspiration—and name—from the comic book team known as the Secret Warriors, which was led by Daisy Johnson, aka Quake (aka SKYE in the show), and consisted of the super-powered children of super villains. In the comics, this team was heavily involved in major events such as the Secret Invasion. We don’t yet know what they will be doing in the season 3 of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but my guess is that it will have something to do with the “Terrigen Fish Oil Bomb” that they loosed at the end of season 2. They may also be involved in the brewing Civil War to some extent.
So who could be on Skye’s team? Obviously, not every member of the team is going to be someone we have met already. However, there are several possibilities for Skye’s first recruits. So in this article I am going to go through all the super-powered “allies” that S.H.I.E.L.D. has encountered and rank them based on their likelihood to join Skye’s Secret Warriors.
The criteria I am looking for are twofold. First, superpowers are a strong factor in the character’s favor. Second, the ability to operate anonymously is also something of a requirement. The absence of one or the other doesn’t automatically disqualify the character, but it does raise red flags.
The ranking scale I am using is 1-5, with “1” meaning “no way in hell” and “5” meaning “already confirmed to be on the team.”
