The enigmatic Agent May
Agent May is a character from the TV series Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D”. As its name indicates, it is a series of the Marvel universe taking place in parallel to the big licenses like Thor, Captain America, Iron Man or Avengers. It tells the story of a group of SHIELD (Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division) agents, a government agency whose goal is to protect the Earth from all kinds of threats, especially alien ones. It was this agency that took an interest in Thor when he arrived on Earth, recruited Captain America and assembled the Avengers. But in this series, it is not superheroes or the director of SHIELD that we follow, but a team led by Phil Coulson. Melinda May is a “specialist”, she is the pilot of the plane that serves as their headquarters and an outstanding fighter. Melinda is a rather cold and withdrawn character who almost never smiles. Before joining Coulson’s team, she chose to have a desk job at SHIELD after a mission that went particularly badly. As a result of this mission, she received the nickname “The Cavalry” and we will have to wait until the middle of season 2 to get the explanation. Melinda May is very loyal to Coulson but, like any S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, she also has secrets.
