Who Is David Angar On 'Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.'? The Screamer Is An Old Friend Of Daredevil
As if the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. didn't have enough to worry about for the time being, now they need to deal with even more chaos, which Calvin Zabo plans to bring their way. He's gone ahead and created his own little band of merry men, but these guys are not here to save the day. They're actually here to do quite the opposite. Zabo is now in cahoots with David Angar on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., who in Marvel Comics is best known for being a one-time foe of Daredevil. Welcome to the madness of S.H.I.E.L.D., The Screamer!
Basically, David Angar is a social activist who became so committed to his cause, he volunteered to undergo a procedure that would give him super-human powers. It's very likely that Angar will show up on S.H.I.E.L.D. as an Inhuman, in order to explain why he has these powers.
And what kind of procedure was it? Angar was subjected to a machine that altered his vocal cords, and kind of gave them super strength. Super strength vocal cords? What could those possibly even be used for? Well, that's also how Angar got the nickname "The Screamer," because his voice became so poweful — and frankly, so loud — that he could cause others to hallucinate in his presence while he was "screaming."
One of the first heroes Angar went up against was Daredevil, and if you know anything about Daredevil, you know that he's blind and relies heavily on his other senses — most notably, sound. So going up against someone like Angar, who uses sound as more or less a weapon, proved rather hard for Daredevil. In the end, Daredevil defeated him, and also managed to talk him out of some of his bad crime ways, but only for a short time. It wasn't long after that that Angar went back to using his powerful vocal cords for his own reasons, and started teaming up with lots of other bad guys.
It only makes sense that he's joined up with Zabo on S.H.I.E.L.D., though it seems as if the character has changed, judging from the promo for Tuesday's episode, shown below.
Notice his strange face mask? The first thing that comes to mind is Batman's Bane. The second is Hannibal Lector. It also looks like Angar can completely unhinge his jaw, which honestly might be the creepiest part about all of this.
It appears as if Angar will only appear in the episode "One Of Us," but that could always change. Considering we still don't know Zabo's grand endgame, Angar could return as one of his cronies to aid in a devious plan.
