Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D: Is Creel a Good or Bad In-human?
In the latest episode of Marvels Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D titled “The Inside Man”, the show-makers brought “The Absorbing Man” or Carl “Crushing” Creel back into the show. Believe it or not, he was chosen by Asgardian Loki (God of Mischief) in one of his schemes against Thor. He is now a personal body-guard of General Glenn Talbot who is now head of Advanced Threat Containment Unit (ATCU) I,.e special task force created by White House to deal with advanced alien threats.
In the last season we saw Creel grabbing the Black Obelisk and did’nt die, it made S.H.I.E.L.D extremely curious as it’s not biologically possible to avoid death in such circumstances if you don’t have an in-human DNA. In Marvel comics, there are mutants who undergo terrigenesis like Quick silver and it takes their powers to insane levels. Finally, Simmons and Fitz cracked the mystery behind his DNA when they tested his blood sample and found that it not only have the adaptability to contain the effects of terrigenesis but remove it altogether. In simple words, it could be an anti-dote or a potential vaccine for all in-humans. But in wrong hands, it could be used to inoculate in-humans. Lincoln and Daisy are at two different ends of the debate; while Lincoln believe that there is a war going on in his mind and he needs a cure to this “disease”; on the other hand Daisy thinks her in-human powers are a gift given to her and she use them to stop bad people from doing bad things.
