J. August Richards has been one of the most judicially used tools in the "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." shed.
The Joss Whedon veteran appeared in the show's pilot as newly enhanced struggling father Mike Peterson and then popped up periodically in the first season as the initially malevolent, but ultimately heroic Deathlok.
Every time Richards returns to "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.," it seems like Deathlok has been modified somewhat, either with an embellished suit or with an evolution in Mike's connection to his humanity.
Richards' latest "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." appearance came on Tuesday's (April 7) episode and the actor just coincidentally happened to be on-set when a group of reporters descended on The Unmarked Marvel Black Site where the ABC series is shot.
