Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Shows Its Season 7 Profiles in Courage

ABC's Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. heads out for its most dangerous season yet starting Wednesday, May 27, with the seventh and final season opener, "The New Deal". Stranded in 1930's New York City and racing against the clock (ironically enough) to prevent the destruction of the past, present, and future, Coulson (Clark Cregg) and the team will face friends and foes on a mission so game-changing that it might just require S.H.I.E.L.D. and Hydra to actually work together. Now, the network is releasing the one sure-fire thing that drives home the point that the upcoming seventh season is also the final one: the deadly-serious, black-n-white profile images, like the ones you're about to see below. To be fair, it's a much better cliche to go with than the one ABC went with for the Modern Family series finale: the "backs-to-us-as -they-look-towards-the-future-or-a-setting-sun" approach. Now that we think about it, the shows could've made for a great crossover, but we digress:
