Making Quake An Inhuman And Changing Her Name To Skye, In The Comics

This is how Mister Hyde of the Marvel Universe used to look like when he was introduced, as drawn by Jack Kirby.

Journey Into Mystery 106-012

And this is how he looks as of this week's issue of S.H.I.E.L.D. as drawn by Greg Smallwood.

Rather a lot  like Kyle MacLachlan in the same role on the Marvel's Agents Of SHIELD TV show…

Quite the resemblance, no?

S.H.I.E.L.D. (2014-) 007-006

Of course Coulson is looking a lot less than he did in issue 3 by Alan Davis

S.H.I.E.L.D. (2014-) 003-020

And more like actor Clark Gregg. Maybe he alternates days using a toupee?

But hang on, what did he call Daisy? Because physical appearance is not the only change. In the Marvel Universe, Daisy Johnson, or Quake was believed to be the mutate daughter of Mister Hyde. Not any more.

S.H.I.E.L.D. (2014-) 007-006 As of this week, she is an Inhuman, as was her mother and her father's genetic experiments on himself triggered her Inhuman genes without need for Terrigen mists.

S.H.I.E.L.D. (2014-) 007-007

And as for her name, Daisy Johnson, Quake? Seems like she has another.

S.H.I.E.L.D. (2014-) 007-009

Did someone make a mistake? Twice? She's never been called Skye in the comics, that was her adopted name in the TV show, she was born Daisy Johnson. Well, Hyde heard…

S.H.I.E.L.D. (2014-) 007-010

Ooohhhhh… is that a bit of a tortuous reach? But even her power set has new similarities to the TV show.

S.H.I.E.L.D. (2014-) 007-008I guess we can expect "Skye" to start turning up in the Uncanny Inhumans comic now?
