Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Will Raina Become Naja?

Agents of set to return from its midseason break tonight, and perhaps shine some light on the midseason cliffhanger. In "What They Become," 'Skye and Raina both came into contact with the terrigen mists, hidden in terrigen crystals inside the Obelisk, and thus underwent terrigenesis. While Skye looks physically unchanged, Raina was another story.

We've yet to get a good look at Raina's new form. Previously, the best we had to go on was a close-up screen capture of Raina's eye, which now looks somewhat feline. Last Thursday, Marvel released their first "Art of Evolution" poster for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s return, which featured Raina. Though she's covered up, we can still see some of her face and a hand, which now looks more like a claw.

She's starting to look somewhat familiar. Her claws and somewhat monstrous form remind us more and more of Naja, from the currently ongoing Inhuman comic book series. Naja is one of the new inhumans who underwent terrigenesis after Black Bolt released the Terrigen Bomb in Infinity. She has a few different powers, including stealth and flight, but little is known about her otherwise, as she's a pretty new creation.

That said, a blank slate character means that nothing about Raina's history should necessarily conflict with Naja's, but we won't know anything for sure until we get a good look at Raina post-terrigenesis.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., "Aftershocks," airs Tuesday, March 3 at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
