Lash recently made a reappearance in the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. 100th episode, but the Lash that initially came to the show was a very different interpretation than the one comic fans knew.
In the comics, Lash came from an isolated
community of Inhumans and was obsessed with the “worthiness” of those who went through the terrigenesis process.
Lash took it upon himself to battle NuHumans, those who became exposed to terrigen without knowing their lineage. His goal was to weed out those he saw as unworthy and take those who were home. He was an amazing fighter, intelligent, and with a strategic mind.
For the television series, the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. writers decided to make Lash the Inhuman transformation of Agent Melinda May’s ex-husband. Initially, the change wasn’t permanent, and Lash was shown as little more than a beast instead of the intelligent Inhuman he was.
