Marvel’s flagship series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. introduced one of its deadliest characters yet this season with the Inhuman Lash, and now we finally have a clean shot of the portal-hopping killer.
We got a peek at Lash early in Season 3, slashing a swath through a hospital while trying to kill an Inhuman. He looked absolutely vicious, and huge, and these fresh shots only add to the horror. Actor Matthew Willig is portraying the character for television, and he’s described as a “monstrous Inhuman whose loyalties remain ambiguous.”
In the comics, Lash debuted in Inhuman #1 – Part 1: Genesis. He was part of a secret Inhuman tribe that believed only a rare few should be allowed to undergo Terrigenesis. In the comics, he started hunting down and killing Inhumans he deemed unworthy. Judging by what we’ve seen of Lash to this point, it stands to reason Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. could be following a similar trajectory.
We expect Lash to be causing trouble for Skye Daisy and her burgeoning gang of Secret Warriors for a while, so check him out below and let us know what you think:
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. airs Tuesday nights on ABC.
