"There's an awful lot of enhancements that he'll have," Loeb teased of a character well known to Marvel comic fans. "His speed, his strength and he's well-known for his cybernetic eye. We first introduced the idea of the eye in Episode 4, so if you've been watching along the way, we've been leaving breadcrumbs for you to follow."

As previously reported, Jaimie Alexander will also come on board an upcoming episode of the series as Thor's Lady Sif. What prompts her appearance?

"She's here to hunt down another Marvel character," Loeb said of Marvel villain Lorelei. "Lorelei is from Asgard. She's a beautiful redhead who has the ability to sway men's minds. She has this in her own unique way of speaking."

Intrigued, SHIELD Fanatics? The show returns with its Deathlok-based episode on February 4.
