What a ride it's been for the inaugural season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. which, as you'll no doubt have already gathered, is taking another time-out this week. What many fans were hoping would be a kind of televised (and Marvel-ized) equivalent to DC's side-character spotlighting maxiseries 52 debuted looking more like NCIS: Marvel Universe - not necessarily a bad idea... just not what most were hoping for.

But then, just as fans were sort-of getting acclimated to that (or just realizing that the Marvel Cinematic Universe would continue to exist even if they didn't bother to watch this one part of it), Agents changed course (sort of) and started inching toward becoming the series folks had hoped for. Dipping into the Marvel Cosmology, welcoming guest stars from the movies and even introducing characters from the Marvel canon we haven't met yet.

That last one has a lot of potential, one that the series seems eager to exploit as it heads toward its season finale. Adrian Pasdar is scheduled to appear in an upcoming episode as perennial Hulk foe Glenn Talbot, and Nerd Comedy icon Patton Oswald has been tapped to appear as Eric Koenig. Fun!

But, unfortunately, the C and D-lists of the Marvel Universe aren't free of folks who're best left forgotten, even if you're just trying to fill a guest-spot on a TV series. Here are ten guys who could conceivably (taking into account the show's budget and general aesthetic preferences) turn up on "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D" ... but probably shouldn't.
