It's the big mystery of the fall TV season: How is Agent Coulson actually alive?
Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has yet to answer the question on how the team's fearless leader Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) is still kicking after being stabbed in the chest by Loki (Tom Hiddleston) in The Avengers. But Tuesday's episode did offer up another clue that could point us in the right direction. Let's first take a look at the clues we've already been given:
Titus Welliver is set to reprise his role from Marvel One-Shot: Item 47 on Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Marvel announced Thursday.

Welcome to Level 7.
When Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. debuted last week, we met the new team of agents tasked with keeping the world safe from the strange and unknown. Heading up the team is Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg), who enlisted Agents Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen) and Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), scientists Fitz (Iain De Caestrecker) and Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge), as well as hacker-anarchist Skye (Chloe Bennet) to form a sub-division of the worldwide law-enforcement organization known as S.H.I.E.L.D. — Strategic Homeland Intervention Enforcement and Logistics Division. TVGuide.com turned to executive producers Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen to get to know the agents better. Check it out:
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
A Norse God. A flying billionaire in an iron suit. A man frozen in time. A giant green rage monster. These are just a few of the characters that Marvel has somehow made relatable throughout its films. But now, in their quest to bring that same magic to TV, ABC will attempt to get the fanboys, fangirls and the uninitiated to tune in for Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
What are Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s chances on Tuesday nights?
On the TV show, which airs Tuesday at 8/7c on ABC, Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) assembles a select group of agents to form the worldwide law-enforcement organization known as S.H.I.E.L.D. — Strategic Homeland Intervention Enforcement and Logistics Division — which investigates strange and unknown occurrences around the globe. The team includes Agents Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen) and Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), scientists Fitz (Ian De Caestrecker) and Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge), as well as hacker-anarchist Skye (Chloe Bennet), who adamantly works against the S.H.I.E.L.D. team until she discovers their true nature.
So how will the world of S.H.I.E.L.D. be approachable for both diehard comic book fans and new viewers alike?
