He’s the guy who’s tasked – a very disciplined guy in my opinion who possesses secrets that would turn your hair white – but at the same time he’s tasked with handling these kind of diva superheroes, you know? “Oh, really, Asgard? Dude, just get in the car.”
Within the sci-fi genre, there’s a type of character we all know, and often love. He’s a little more weary than the rest, maybe a little more cynical. He knows more than he lets on, and usually more than he can let on. If he hasn’t seen it all, he’s seen at least too much for surprise. And he’s the guy who holds the story together.
You’ll know him as Walter Skinner. Or Frank Black. Or K. Or Phil Coulson.
He’s The Agent.
