The Absorbing Man, otherwise known as Carl “Crusher” Creel has been cast for the upcoming season of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. The villain will be played by Brian Patrick Wade (Teen Wolf) and will be appearing in the first episode of the season.
This is a character that was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. He first appeared during the Silver Age and has since been appearing in Marvel Comics for the last four decades. His power is that he absorbs the properties of whatever he touches.
The above picture shows Creel in action and it definitely will be trouble for the newly appointed Director Coulson. Wade will be joining a rabidly growing Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. cast that includes Adrianne Palicki (Bobbi Morse, a.k.a. Mockingbird), Lucy Lawless (Agent Isabelle Hartley), Reed Diamond (Daniel Whitehall), Nick Blood (Lance Hunter), Henry Simmons (Alphonso “Mack” Mackenzie), and Kyle MacLachlan (Skye’s father), alongside the returning cast of Clark Gregg (Director Coulson), Ming-Na Wen (Agent May), Brett Dalton (Grant Ward), Elizabeth Henstridge (Agent Simmons), Iain De Caestecker (Agent Fitz), and Chloe Bennet (Agent Skye).
Season Two of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. begins on September 23, 2014 at 9:oo PM.
