For fans of the Cosmic Avenger, Quasar, they will note the character first was an Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Long story short, Wendell Vaughn donned the quantum-bands following an attack by AIM in which his scientist father was in part studying them.
If you have been following the new ABC series Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. or any of the Marvel Studios movies you may have been keeping an eye out for S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Wendell Vaughn.
While no S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent is mentioned, a "Professor Vaughn" is stated by Fitz and Simmons in a couple episodes.
The final scene of the episode, "0-8-4," sees them say, "Take that, Professor Vaughn!"
Likewise, in episode "Seeds" we get both a reference to Professor Vaughn as well as A.I.M.
The showunners of Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. were actually asked about the potential use of Wendell Vaughn, but kept mum on the subject.
Then we've got George D., a major Quasar fan who asks: "With the mention of a 'Professor Vaughn' several times by Fitz-Simmons is there any plans to work in the character of Wendell Vaughn aka Quasar into the series as a guest or recurring character?"
Tancharoen: Again, we can't comment.
