Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. have been increasing their ranks, even adding a superhero, Mockingbird, to the roster. Turns out, they’re going to need it.
With new super heroes comes new super villains, and Crusher Creel aka the Absorbing Man is going to be taking on the team in the season premiere on Tuesday, September 23. Played by Brian Patrick Wade, the character will have his superpower - the ability to absorb and take on anything he touches (grab a steel chain, skin turns to steel, etc).
In the pages of Marvel Comics, Creel has been a villain for Thor, Hulk, the assembled Avengers, and more, and been in a version of the Masters of Evil, a team teased lightly in the Marvel Cinematic Universe already.
