If you thought “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s” Ghost Rider storyline was strange, buckle up — it’s about to get even stranger. A new poster for “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: LMD” promises there are “Strange Tales” ahead.
The tagline on the new poster is, of course, a big nod to “Strange Tales” #135, which introduced Life Model Decoys to the Marvel Universe. It’s worth noting that Nick Fury also features prominently in this issue, though it’s unlikely Samuel L. Jackson will reprise the role on the show anytime soon.
In the Season 4 mid-season finale, the show wrapped up its ongoing Ghost Rider story arc when Robbie Reyes and his nefarious uncle Eli Morrow disappeared into a different dimension. After this grand finale, however, things took a dark turn for Coulson and his crew. Unbeknownst to S.H.I.E.L.D., Aida has developed plans of her own. As revealed in the episode, the Agent May we’ve seen over the past several episodes is actually an LMD. Meanwhile, Aida has been keeping the real Agent May sedated and hidden away from her friends and family. It’s unclear what her plans are for the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but the synopsis for the “LMD” storyline describes them as “evil,” so it’s not looking good for May.
“Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” Season 4 will return with “Broken Promises.” According to the official description for the episode,
Though Coulson and May are growing closer, Coulson remains unaware of the dark secret May is hiding beneath the surface. Meanwhile, Aida is unrelenting in her search for the Darkhold.
