Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was a show that had some really big boots to fill. It was the first experiment in extending the Marvel Cinematic Universe (which had been limited only to films) to the world of television. The experiment was a wild success, and this has helped lead to a variety of success MCU TV shows such as Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Runaways.

As these other shows have thrived, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has continued to grow and evolve. We have gotten new heroes as well as new villains that present new threats to the world that not even the Avengers can handle.

Sometimes, it seems like there’s more characters on this show than you can shake a Cosmic Cube at. Some of them are powerful enough to one day work alongside Captain America and Iron Man. Others, however, aren’t even fit enough to shine the tractors out on Hawkeye’s farm.

How can you tell which of our favorite characters are the strongest and which are the weakest? Fortunately, you don’t have to recruit Daisy to hack into a S.H.I.E.L.D. database… all you have to do is keep scrolling in order to learn all about Agents Of Shield: 10 Most Powerful (And 5 Most Worthless) Characters, Ranked!

15. Worthless: Lincoln

Lincoln Campbell is a character that looks really good on paper. He’s an Inhuman with a tortured background that includes both alcoholism and working with dangerous Inhuman forces. He ends up developing a relationship with Daisy, but the character never really amounted to much of anything.

His power is “electrokinesis” and the show basically made up a new, weird use for this every episode: sometimes he could heat up water, sometimes he could control metal, and other times, he’d power objects and kickstart hearts back to life. Nothing about his powers was very coherent and he was no good in a fight.

His relationship with Daisy also fizzled (due in no small part to the actors having zero chemistry), so when he gets his heroic sacrifice to help kill Hive, many fans were not sad to see him go!

14. Powerful: Mack

Mack first joined our familiar S.H.I.E.L.D. team under a shroud of secrecy. He was a double agent who was working for that other S.H.I.E.L.D. team under Commander Gonzales. Over time, though, he has become a reliable and powerful member of Agent Coulson’s team.

Unlike some of the people on this list, Mack doesn’t have any super powers or other special abilities. Instead, he’s got lots of physical strength and the ability to create some pretty amazing weaponry. One of our best glimpses of this is when he creates a combined shotgun ax to take out some of Hive’s special soldiers.

This is Mack in a nutshell: he combines raw brawn with the brains to make inventive weapons and the experience to use it to dominate his enemies!
