Posted January 23, 2014 by Guilherme Jacobs in Comic Books

Marvel has confirmed a lot of fan theories today, by confirming J. August Richards’ character in Agents of SHIELD, Mike Peterson, will become the classic Marvel character Deathlok, who’s celebrating 40 years in 2014. Deathlok will show up in the upcoming episode “T.R.A.C.K.S.”, premiering on the 4th of February.

Deathlok has super strength and incresead speed, thanks to the cybernetic limbs such as his mechanic leg. He also has a super sweet cybernetic eye that allows him to see through walls, among other things.

“We have been waiting all season for this moment where we can reveal that Mike Peterson’s story arc is an origin story,” said Executive Producer Jeffrey Bell. “We’re thrilled to have J. August Richards playing Deathlok and to have our audience enjoy this favorite Marvel character on the show.”

“If you would have asked when I was nine-years old what I wanted to be, I would have said a super hero and I’m so excited to be one now as an adult on TV!” added J. August Richards. “It’s a dream come true.”
