After some uncertainty about their future, and a really long hiatus, the Agents of SHIELD are back for a sixth season. The Marvel Cinematic Universe has changed a lot while they’ve been away, and the tv shows have drifted further away from the movies.

Continuing this season’s tradition of reusing titles, “This Deadly Secret” came from Power Man and Iron Fist 99, back in 1983. The triad issues inch forward, Danny gets told some confusing things, and Colleen makes a few discoveries of her own.
