“Marvel’s Most Wanted,” the spin-off of “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” recently provided teasers on the fate of Grant Ward.

The official synopsis for “Marvel’s Most Wanted” on Deadline reveals that the story will focus on Bobbi Morse (Adrianne Palicki), also known as Mockingbird, and Lance Hunter (Nick Blood). The two are former spies and ex-spouses who are currently trying to escape their enemies. They have no friends and do not have the protection and support that S.H.I.E.L.D. used to provide.

The two also have several enemies who are out to kill them, offering a huge bounty for their demise. The pair were compelled to ally with Dominic Fortune (Delroy Lindo), a wealthy rogue adventurer with his own list of enemies. Fortune offers Bobbi and Lance protection in exchange for their help in his own plans. The two will oblige, while trying to reveal the conspiracy that also puts them at risk.

Io9 states that the two heroes on the run can mean that the agency may be incapacitated or they may have been separated from the group. The spin-off series may even be borne out of the damage that Ward will cause when he returns.

According to ComicBook, Elizabeth Henstridge, who plays Simmons on “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” revealed that Grant Ward is Hive who takes the memories of the people he has killed, which will lead to several interesting situations. In the comics, Hive was created by Hydra as a genetic experiment altered to possess the most vital traits of the organisation within a single entity. The character was made by Jonathan Hickman and first appeared in “Secret Warriors,” and who was also first seen in “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” Season 3.

iO9 adds that on the ABC show, Hive is an alien parasite that Hydra wanted to bring to Earth for a long time. Coulson (Clark Gregg) and the team are expected to face off against Ward when the show continues. Ward’s form may undergo a few changes due to the alien form inside him, but the drastic alterations may involve his personality. Hive will still be fully loyal to Hydra.

“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” will air next on Mar. 8 on ABC in the US and on Foxtel in Australia.
