While Marvel released the standard two movies in 2015 (the company is upping to three starting in 2017), this year was undoubtedly its biggest in television. Not only did Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. finish its second season and move into its third, but the House of Ideas added three new shows to its lineup. Agent Carter aired while Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was on hiatus, giving another period piece adventure. Meanwhile on Netflix, Marvel delved into darker storytelling with Daredevil in April and Jessica Jones in November. With so much ground covered on television this year, it’s no wonder that one of the results was introducing some great players.

To celebrate all that Marvel accomplished on the small screen in 2015, we’ve gathered together the top 10 TV characters that debuted this year in the MCU. From heroes to villains and the supporting characters in between, these are the folks who made major impressions with viewers and left them wanting more. Thankfully, we’ll be seeing most of these people again in future seasons, so there will be more opportunities for them to shine in the near future.

Warning: there will be spoilers for all of Marvel’s current TV shows from this point forward in the text. If you haven't caught all shows, feel free to slide right through the ones you haven't seen.

Andrew Garner
10. Andrew Garner
Andrew Garner was introduced on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as a former S.H.I.E.L.D. psychologist and May’s ex-husband. While he was helpful counseling Daisy Johnson, after she became an Inhuman, Andrew was a fairly cut-and-dry character during the show’s sophomore season: not boring, but not interesting either. Fortunately, he has gotten quite the boost during Season 3 after he was outed as Lash, the Inhuman who has been killing his fellow kind if he deems them unworthy. Unlike most Jekyll and Hyde dynamics, Garner hasn’t struggled to fight the new urges imbued in him since he was transformed. He has the same drive to see his mission through in both forms, and his villainy has become a refreshing change of pace from what HYDRA has been doling out. Like Grant Ward, Andrew became more appealing once he was a full-on antagonist, and while it’s unclear if he’ll ever redeem himself, we’re content seeing him continue on his rampage in the near future.
