Marvel Television

Art Imitating Life

The following events are true. The following events are not a joke. I really wish the following events were a punchline and not a sad reflection of our culture. You’ll see what I mean.

So in honor of tonight’s season finale of the Coulson/May Power Hour (known to some of you as Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), I thought I’d do a special edition Throwback Tuesday.

It was 3.5 years ago and I was watching the pilot of CMPH (AoS). Coulson and Ward had cornered Skye (aka Daisy aka Quake) and just arrested her.

Denny: DAYUM!!!!!! I MEAN THEY JUST SNATCHED THAT WHITE GIRL UP. No Miranda rights no due process. You would’ve thought Skye was a woman of color or something.


GOOD GAWD Clark Gregg is hawt!!!!!!


[Studies Skye suspiciously]

Denny:  ……. wait a minute……

[Googles Chloe Bennet]


Chloe Bennet (born Chloe Wang)… While pursuing an acting career in Hollywood, she changed her name to “Chloe Bennet” after having trouble booking gigs with her last name.

See what I mean?
