(SPOILER) Marvel releases three clips from tonight's "Girl In The Flower Dress". Three lengthy scenes, including the first four minutes of the episode.

So I was right. It's not Girl In The Flower Dress or the organization she works for who gives Fire Guy his powers, she wants to exploit him. Still so curious to see where they go with the power's origin.
The battleship match was adorable. This and the latest ep bonding with Coulson make me hopeful that the hinted betrayal is real and not a fake out.
The suits of the guys that apprehend him look generic, but remind me of suits that are used by A.I.M. from the Marvel Universe.

Maybe M.O.D.O.K. will show up later in the series? I think he is one of those villains that would be hard to translate to the screen.
alber, I HOPE M.O.D.O.K. shows up! Yes, it would be tricky to translate...but if they could pull it off, it would be spectacular! Could they make him humorous and horrible at the same time, --the way Buffy managed to do with the Mayor or Glory? I also think of Balthazar from Buffy, one of the most preposterous of one-shot villains. I also wonder if they would use the original meaning of the acronym --which I think was "Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing". (Surely, M.O.D.O.K. is a Kirby creation...) I have been secretly hoping they would try something like that. (If they do, I hope Kirby's estate gets something for it...I haven't been following those legal battles, so I don't know what the status of all that is now).
Ward is really freakishly boring.
I like him. He is being the butt of many jokes right now, while being at the same time quite awsemome. He is being probably one of the most whedonite things in the show right now, taking the piss out of him and celebrating the good things at the same time.
Yeah,Ward's my favourite, actually, for the reasons Darkness outlines.
I was a bit wary of Ward at first due to the Riley-ish vibes, but I think there's potential there. That smile in the Battleships scene was indeed adorable. There's a charisma there that's been clamped down for some reason. Looking forward to seeing all the characters develop.
Interesting. It's the Battleship scene here that really underscores my inability to connect with him. He seemed vacant and unpresent, and I guess I'm having trouble determining if it's a deliberate character thing or a performance snag.
I've met the guy and watched him perform. He's very charismatic.
Ward has been my favorite from the beginning. He reminds me a lot of season 1 Olivia on Fringe. What is under all that repression? Can't wait to find out!
^That's what I feel about Melinda May. I can't wait to find out more about her. But I find Ward boring as well. So far. (You never know when a character turns out to be awesome. Caroline on The Vampire Diaries was like finger nails on a chalk board until about 6 episodes in.)
