Comics Villain The Blizzard Set To Appear In Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.



The synopsis for episode 12 of Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. reveals a comic book villain will be coming to the series with none other than The Blizzard!

The plot synopsis reveals the name of Donald Gill, aka The Blizzard, in the Marvel Comics. Obviously this doesn't necessarily mean the supervillain will make an appearance.

"Seeds" Episode Synopsis:

"Seeds" – Coulson and May uncover startling information about Skye’s past, while the team is swept into a storm at S.H.I.E.L.D. Academy, on "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.," Tuesday, January 14 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

"Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." stars Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson, Ming-Na Wen as Agent Melinda May, Brett Dalton as Agent Grant Ward, Chloe Bennet as Skye, Iain De Caestecker as Agent Leo Fitz and Elizabeth Henstridge as Agent Jemma Simmons.

Guest starring are David Conrad as Ian Quinn, Christine Adams as Agent Anne Weaver, Dylan Minnette as Donnie Gill, Daniel Zovatto as Seth Dormer, Boyd Kestner as Richard Lumley, Zachary Burr Abel as Tad and Maiara Walsh as Callie Hannigan.

"Seeds" was written by Monica Owusu-Breen & Jed Whedon and directed by Ken Fink.

Fitting with the theme from the Marvel Iron Man movies (i.e. Extremis), The Blizzard is primarly a foe of Tony Stark. Justin Hammer, of Hammer Industries, gave Donnie Gill the battlesuit. Gill also becomes a reformed supervillain (at times) and was a member of Baren Zemo's superteam, the Thunderbolts.

16-year-old Dylan Minnette plays Donnie Gill in the series.


Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns Tuesday, January, 7th at 8pm ET on ABC.

Seeds airs January 14th.
