Two of the biggest aspects of this season of Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. are the on-going Inhuman storyline and the formation of the Secret Warriors team by Daisy Johnson. With both of those stories going on at the same time, one might assume that the team would consist of mostly new Inhuman characters. While speaking with ComicBook.com, executive producer Jeff Bell spoke a little about the subject and gave away some hints about the direction that they’ll be taking that aspect of the season.

When asked about Daisy’s growing frustration about the team not being a priority and if we’re going to see some movement on that aspect soon, Bell said that it’s about “finding the right pieces, and the surprise and the twists and turns along the way that make it worthwhile” rather than showing up “with five people you don’t know and you’re not invested in who have all these skills, which I don’t think would be as satisfying”. The site then asked if, due to the nature of this season, the team will consist of mostly Inhumans. Bell replied with the following.

I would say you certainly don’t have to be an Inhuman to be a part of it. I would say, in the Marvel Universe as it exists, people tend to be either from another planet, i.e. Thor, an accident of science, like Cap or Hulk, or have cool tech like Iron Man. Add into that mix Inhumans, it’s a way…even Ms. Marvel, in the comics, her genesis was as an Inhuman. I know the comics are relying more on Inhumans as an understandable origin for these people to have powers, and we’re telling a lot of those stories, but we also have character that we’ve seen in the past, who aren’t Inhuman who could certainly show up as part of the team, as well as characters we have not met yet. So that is a way, stupid long, overcomplicated answer to your question. No, you don’t have to be an Inhuman to be a Secret Warrior.

Very curious to see if they include any of the team from the comics or if we’re going to see a whole new squad formed of mostly original characters. Either way, I’d expect some movement on this story very soon after a few things wrap up in the coming weeks. Let us know your thoughts on what Bell had to say and who you’d like to see in the comments below.
