Eric O'Grady: The 9th Greatest Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Among the numerous agents once active within the S.H.I.E.L.D. organization, many have had virtues of honesty, bravery, and the characteristics of true heroes who were willing to lay their lives down for the safety of their nation. These were the qualities sought for when choosing who would serve our country’s most secret group.

But that’s got nothing to do with Eric O’Grady; we’re not even sure if he’s a hero. If one were to appoint a redeeming quality to this low-level agent, a face among many within the organization, it might have been ambition or determination. Then again, it may have been plain old greed. That’s because his rise to super-agent status came when he illegitimately acquired Hank Pym’s latest Ant-Man technology, originally destined for another.

Item of the Day:The Irredeemable Ant-Man

Mostly concerned with saving himself and getting the girl, that’s Eric O’Grady, once a typical low-level agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. His initial series was The Irredeemable Ant-Man, which started in 2006 and ran for 12 issues.

If you’re looking for a completely immoral superhero, and want to laugh throughout the entire story, O’Grady makes a great counterpart to Deadpool. Personally, I’d like to see them team up.

Eric O'Grady can also be found in groups such as The Initiative, Damage Control, The Shadow Initiative, and The Thunderbolts, where Norman Osborn decided to use him to help manipulate the President.

Eric O'Grady hits the #9 spot on The Top 10 Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., a tribute from The Superheroes List, to the Avengers movie coming out in 2012. If you want to see some fairly unique characters involved in the world of a shadow organization, check out this list!
