My money is on that there NEVER was an Agent Phil Coulson, and that he's been an LMD from day one. Look at the shorts, and his movements are very precise. His speech is a little stilted, and formal. He may be an extremely advanced LMD, that is FULLY FUNCTIONAL, and doesn't know he is an LMD.

Is this ok for kids to watch? (8 yo? He loved the Avengers movie, but sometimes the tv shows can get into some more adult themes).

Oh, definitely kid friendly! Thus far, nothing at all un-family friendly beyond standard prime-time violence.

Seen the first three episodes and liked it ok. Hope the two tech geeks (Fitz Simons) get a bit better, didn't really warm to their arguing and prattling on..

I agree - very unlike Wheddon I thought.

Another hint was dropped last episode towards the end. Still ambiguous but the mystery remains.

But, thanks to the direct reference to "Extremis", we can be fairly sure that AIM is the bad guy. Still holding out hope for an eventual appearance by MODOK, but that may be a little too 'out there' for this show.

And I'm starting to notice a sort of structural similairity to FIREFLY, in terms of the cast...

Did anyone else notice that they are purposely staying away from using the term "Mutant" when dealing with people with powers?

Yes, and in reality, that's because of licensing issues. This company version of Marvel has the Rights for everything except the X-Titles. The other Marvel owns the X-Title Rights. This is why we may or may not see Quicksilver and the The Beast in the next Avengers movie. Pietro Maximoff / Quicksilver was an Avenger for quite a few years, yet is a Mutant who is also secretly the son of Magneto. The Beast was also an Avenger for quite a few years. If we see either of them in the next Avengers movie, you'll never hear the word Mutant, nor will any hint of the word "X-Men" be mentioned.

BTW, in at least Marvel parlance, a Mutant is born with their powers. Technically Chan / Scorch would be a mutate, gaining those powers due to having breathed in contaminated air from the nuclear power plant. So, he's technically an altered human, not a Mutant. The mutation caused by the nuclear contamination was super-charged by the Extremis formula, thus super-charging his ability.

I watched "pacific Rim" again last night and the two "scientist types" were annoyingly similar.

OK so I am trying to figure out if M.A.O.S. takes place before or after the events in Iron Man 3. What do you fine people think?

I'm thinking after. They know an awful lot about Extremis is my primary angle for that reasoning.

That makes sense Griff, but on the other hand, it seems like Extremis is in it's infancy in M.A.O.S. and not up to the caliber it was in Iron Man 3

Allright! Who was the half of a guy supposed to be? My very first thought was Jim Horton until they panned down and there was nothing there.
