A common fan complaint regarding Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is that it hasn't delivered the deluge of Marvel Universe character-appearances many assumed would be part of its reason to exist. I'm not 100% sure that's the problem with the show (currently in a monthlong hiatus because of The Olympics) but it's also something that couldn't really hurt. With that in mind, here's 10 Marvel characters who'd probably make for a good guest spot:

TASKMASTER

This guy has probably one of the most useful special abilities in comic-book history: "Photographic Reflexes." Basically, his muscle/eye coordination is inhumanly well-tuned, and any human skill he observes (excluding mutant powers, augmented abilities, magic, etc) he can mimic flawlessly. He's a master hacker, safe-cracker, gymnast etc simply by having watched the various skills being performed, he's mastered hundreds of complex martial-arts techniques, he can even pull-off Captain America's shield-fighting moves (in the comics, something only a handful of humans can do.) He uses these skills primarily as a criminal and mercenary, but has occasionally been drafted by S.H.I.E.L.D and other government bodies as a trainer. One minor snag to his usefulness: His typical costume of blue, orange and white medieval garb, hooded-cloak, skull-mask, sword and shield (when created, he was supposed to look like an evil hodgepodge of then-current Avengers) probably wouldn't fly on TV outside of specific circumstances.
