Mike Peterson / Deathlok
This is the first if what will be a significant amount of posts covering a backlog of content I never got round to on my old blog – hopefully with some up to date stuff sprinkled in too! In these posts I will cover significant characters and other items from the series
Mike Peterson is one of the primary characters of SHIELD with a twisting story that sees him on both sided of the conflict. Injured and unable to work, struggling to support his son Ace, he was offered rehabilitation by a mysterious corporation, who turned out to be project Centipede, who were trying to create super soldiers for Hydra
An accident at the lab gave Mike the opportunity to demonstrate the super strength the Centipede implant give him and was branded a superhero by the media and came to the attention of SHIELD and the rogue hacker Skye.
After the dangerous elements of his implants were neutralised he joined SHIELD as a covert operative. This was short-lived as Ace was captured and he was forced to betray Coulson into the hands of Hydra. His leg was damaged in an explosion and replaced with experimental technology, further implants gave him body armour and other enhancements.
Controlled by an explosive implant in his eye he carried out several high profile attacks for Hydra, and was forced to go up against the very people who saved him. When Skye freed Ace, he finally was able to turn on his captors. He refused to rejoin SHIELD, needing time to find and redeem himself before facing his son again.
Michael Collins was a worker programming cybernetic limbs, wen he found out they were for weapons he was betrayed and woke up in a cybernetic body he could not control. Eventually he got control back and used his abilities for good.
