"When the brilliant scientist, Dr. Franklin Hall, is kidnapped, Agent Coulson and his S.H.I.E.L.D. agents must race against the clock to locate him. Skye is their only way in--pushing the team to their limits when the entire plan turns upside-down on Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."

Harry Potter actor Ian Hart (who played Professor Quirrell) will play the role of the S.H.I.E.L.D. scientist who eventually becomes Graviton. Hall took the identity of Graviton after a laboratory accident gave him power over gravity. Created by Jim Shooter and Sal Buscema back in 1977’s Avengers #158, Graviton popped up in several other titles over the years such as Thor, Amazing Spider-Man and a big stint in Thunderbolts. He was last seen in recent issues of Nick Spencer’s Secret Avengers run as a member of the High Council of A.I.M.. He was also a villain in animated cartoon on DisneyXD, The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes. It is unknown if Hall will become Graviton in the episode or lead to in a later one.
