Marvel Legends - QUAKE!

Marvel Legends - Controller Build-a-Figure Wave - Quake - Mattel 2022

A few years ago I started watching Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and became obsessed right away. I was behind the times and had many seasons to catch up one. I ranted recently about how I typically find military organizations in superhero books to be boring (I much prefer individual superpowered villains). But this show exposed me to the storytelling potential of these groups. Of course, I still managed to find the most superhero-like member and focus all my adoration on her. Daisy Johnson aka Quake was the standout character. She has the power to control vibrations and has to wear special gauntlets to avoid damaging the bones and capillaries her arms. I wrongly thought she was a new character for the show, but she had been appearing in comics for nine years when Chloe Bennet took on the role and launched her into A list (maybe B list) territory. A great thing about this figure is generic body which can become almost any female S.H.I.E.L.D. agent with a simple head swap. Let's check her out below!

Quake comes with the Left Arm (and extra Hand) for the Build-a-Figure Controller figure.

This comic page amuses me because I'm 90% sure the artist used Angelina Jolie as the model reference.
Specifically her appearance in Hackers.

Quake also comes with an alternate Maria Hill head with two sets of non-gauntlet Maria hands and a pistol.

I think it's quite an oversight that they didn't include a holster for the Maria Hill version of this figure. Especially when the Madame Hydra figure in the same wave has a perfect one (albeit in bright green).

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here is Quake with two of her wave-mates: Speedball and Madame Hydra.
