‘Don’t Touch Lola’: The Best Character On ‘Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ Made An Appearance At NYCC 2013
No matter how you feel about the recently launched Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. television series (so far we’ve been disappointed, but still hold out hope), I think we can all agree on one thing: The best written, most entertaining and most well-defined character, by a pretty wide margin, is Lola. There are no vague, uninteresting mysteries associated with Lola. You know her motivations, and you know exactly why she’s with SHIELD. And really, can you say that about any other member of Agent Coulson’s team so far (okay, maybe Skye)?
Being the best character on the show, it seemed only natural that Lola was front and center at the Marvel booth at this year’s New York Comic Con to greet fans (from behind stanchions, because you must never touch Lola), some of whom we imagine were pleading with her to teach some of the other cast members how to show a bit more agency and personality.
Which is not a good sign for the series, because Lola is a car.
