Some Impostor Just Stole Summer Glau's Role In Joss Whedon's S.H.I.E.L.D. Series
She'll be playing Agent Melinda May, who is "soulful and slightly damaged by her combat experiences, [but] an ace pilot, a weapons expert, and a soldier who can (and has) gone beyond the call of duty."
Soulful and slightly damaged? ISN'T THAT WHEDON'S SUMMER GLAU ARCHETYPE?
What's going on here? In fact, the character has actually been re-named since the original character sketches for the show were revealed. Originally, the character was named Althea Rice, which is a much stronger name than Melinda May.
Anyway, Ming-Na Wen is not from the Whedon universe, which is very troubling. Stop thinking outside the box, man. We love that box of Whedon goodness. Don't go putting new things in there.
