If you're one of the many fans who wished 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' had more characters from Marvel Comics' vast history, you'll be happy about this news.

ABC TV announced the series will soon introduce the character of Donnie Gill - AKA Blizzard. Eighteen year-old Dylan Minnette, who gained some geek cred from his stint on 'Lost', will play the supervillain in Episode 12, titled 'Seeds' (airing Jan. 14).

Here's the official synopsis of Episode 12, via ABC TV -


"Seeds" - Coulson and May uncover startling information about Skye’s past, while the team is swept into a storm at SHIELD Academy. On "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.," Tuesday, January 14 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Tlelevision Network.

Now, if you're up on your Iron Man comics history, you''ll recognize Blizzard as one of ol' Shell Head's foes from way back. In case you're not up to speed, Blizzard is a supervillain with the power to instantly freeze stuff - thanks to a high tech, cryogenic suit - courtesy of billionaire/weapons-maker Justin Hammer.

You might recall Sam Rockwell played Justin Hammer in 2010's 'Iron Man 2'. Rockwell has mentioned that he's up for playing the role again anytime Marvel wants, but I don't expect to see Rockwell show up this season. David Conrad played a character in Episode 3, named Ian Quinn, who might be the source of Gill's suit in 'AoS'. Quinn will also appear in Episode 12, so maybe we'll see Gill get his cryo-suit then.

Don't forget - 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' returns from its winter break on January 7 with Episode 11, titled 'The Magical Place'. ABC's teasing this episode as a big reveal regarding Agent Coulson's so called "resurrection" and his stay in "Tahiti". It'll be interesting to see just how much we learn about that mystery.

Check out a preview of Episode 11 below.

How do ya like this 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' news? Should Marvel introduce more supervillains into the series?
