Agents of SHIELD season 4 continues to explore the LMD arc. Thus, theories abound as to who among the characters are actually Life Model Decoys.
The use of LMDs might be more economical for the production as opposed to keeping Ghost Rider onboard. Nonetheless, it still offers the same level of excitement to keep fans on edge.
Moreover, guessing whom among the Agents of SHIELD characters might be an LMD certainly offers many thought-provoking theories.
Theories on Agents of SHIELD LMDs
So far, Agent May (Ming-Na Wen) and Robot Aida (Mallory Jansen) are the known LMDs on the Agents of SHIELD cast. Indeed, LMDs have penetrated the agency. Moreover, they are part of the criminal plot devised by Dr Radcliffe (John Hannah) along with Senator Nadeer (Parminder Nagra).
LMDs are part of Marvel’s comic book universe. Hence, continued speculations as to who among the agents are Life Model Decoys. In particular, the 13 Koenig agents are high on their list of suspects, according to Screen Rant. Indeed, a number of Reddit users seem to concur with this theory under the Agents of SHIELD LMD forum.
“Billy/Eric (The one who died) did mention playing COD with his brother, could be a twin. Although he didnt seem that upset when mentioning he died so i think clone sounds more plausible,” one Reddit user wrote.
“I think Eric was a real person who had an LMD made in the case of something bad happening (which it did),” another Reddit user commented.
Bonus of LMDs in Agents of SHIELD
Interestingly, the LMD arc seems to offer a bonus to fans. As it turns out, the roles of agents Sam and Billy Koenig are played by one actor namely comedian Patton Oswalt. His portrayals make his characters some of the favorites among fans.
He is set to return in Agents of SHIELD season 4 episode 12. The new Hot Potato Soup promo features him.
Apparently, Agent Coulson recruited the Koenig agents to safeguard the Darkhold. Hopefully, Sam and Billy will not suffer the same fate as Eric as they carry out their duties this time around.
