First Look at Matthew Willig as the Inhuman Lash on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. finally returns for its third season tonight, and in anticipation of a very Inhuman-centric premiere (and season, for that matter), Marvel has released the first look at former NFL player Matthew Willig as the Marvel Comics character Lash:

First Look at Lash on Agents of SHIELD

In the comics, Lash is an Inhuman with the ability to leech energy from various sources and emit it from his palms. He has an unusual backstory, as he was born in a secret Inhuman community in Greenland that viewed exposure to the Terrigen mist as an honor. He eventually takes it upon himself to seek out Inhumans and decide whether they are worthy of their gift.

It's unclear how similar the adaptation of his character will be, but from the above picture, he's at least faithful in appearance. It will be interesting to see his journey compared to someone like Daisy, who can still pass for a regular human in her everyday life if she so chooses.

Opening quote
"I think Raina was so shocking and Lash, he's obviously even more shocking," Chloe Bennet told Comicbook.com. "I like to think that they've seen their fair of crazy shit and that's just something that's pretty insane but not totally mind-blowing. So much has happened, I don't want to say that the team is jaded I think that there's definitely like that, 'Okay, that's f*cking weird but let's try and find him.' I kind of think that's more a let's shake it off and find this guy and see what he's up to, what he's doing. For me, on set, when Matt walked on to set, honestly, me and Luke [Mitchell] and Henry [Simmons] had our jaws dropped. I actually think he looks even better in person than he does on camera. I wish everyone could see him in person, it's just shocking."
Closing quote


Marvel also released an Inhuman-centric clip from tonight's premiere:



Fittingly, Daisy and Lincoln are discussing whether the Inhuman powers are a "gift" or a "curse." We haven't met him yet, but we probably know what Lash's answer would be.
