Besides android women and guys with flaming heads, one of the biggest changes for Marvel's Agents of SHIELD season 4 was the introduction of the new Director Jeffrey Mace (Jason O'Mara). Mace is an Inhuman with an undetermined abilities, but they include increased strength. He is loosely based on the old Marvel character The Patriot who filled in for Captain America for a while.
But what's the real story behind Mace? How'd he get his powers and just who was he before that? Seems those answers are coming sooner rather than later as O'Mara told TVLine:
How Mace got his powers, his whole backstory, is going to be a major part of the next batch of episodes. How he legitimizes Daisy is going to be revealed as well, so there's lots to look forward to there.
You know they'll have to work the name Patriot in there somewhere.
