Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. introduced the character of Jeffrey Mace, based on the Marvel character Patriot, who in this version was portrayed as an Inhuman, but there were still a lot that we didn’t know about him. During tonight’s episode titled “The Patriot”, it was revealed that Mace was in fact never an Inhuman to begin with.
Glenn Talbot explained that they used parts of Calvin Zabo’s formula to give Mace temporary abilities for whenever it was necessary and to convince the public that S.H.I.E.L.D. now has an Inhuman director. They wanted to have an enhanced director, but failed to find a worthy candidate, so they created one through Mace with the modified version of Calvin’s formula.
