“Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” proved to be a hit after an impressive debut this Tuesday. With a fan following, audiences began to speculate what really happened to Coulson after Maria Hill revealed there was more to it than fans thought. On Thursday, September 26, ComicBook.com offered five possible explanations on how Phil Coulson survived – this may include spoilers.
The first possibility involves Scarlet Witch. The source believes that she brought him back to life. Supporting this theory are the references Agent Coulson made about dating a cellist, during “The Avengers,” a possible reference to the Scarlet Witch. It has also been revealed that Scarlet Witch will be joining the Avengers in the sequel “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” and the Marvel TV series does tie into the movies.
A crazy scenario suggests that Agent Coulson was probably never alive to begin with. Coulson could be an android, but S.H.I.E.L.D. wants to keep this from him. If this is true, then why was Fury so concerned for his friend when he saw him taking his, what appeared to be, last breath?
Next is the theory that Coulson is gifted. After rumors of Marvel working on an Inhumans movie, the source suggest that Coulson has some special abilities of his own, but S.H.I.E.L.D. does not want him to know he is gifted just like the people he is assigned to track down.
The third theory suggests that the new Coulson is a model decoy. Loki killed the real Coulson, but S.H.I.E.L.D. had a backup model decoy of him installed. This doesn’t make much sense on why Maria Hill commented that Coulson must never know though.
The most possible scenario that most fans are speculating is that Coulson is a cyborg. S.H.I.E.L.D. has the latest tech, after Tony Stark’s of course. So when Coulson’s life was on a string, his heart and other parts could have been replaced with robotics.
