While Santa Claus or Nick Fury might not have given Agent Fitz a monkey, Marvel’s Chief Creative Officer came through.
Iain De Caestecker, otherwise known as Agent Fitz on “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” wished for a monkey in an episode from the show’s first season. De Caestecker celebrates a birthday today, and as a special gift, Joe Quesada and colorist Paul Mounts created an image of Fitz with his new friend H.E.N.R.Y. — a monkey A.I.:
The image was revealed this morning on the official “Marvel Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” Twitter feed. According to a Marvel spokesperson, this is the first time that “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” has been officially rendered by a Marvel artist.
