Similarly, if they used the Infinity Formula, or any other macguffins out of the blue - especially those that would have been very useful to SHIELD often but were used nowhere else other than to retcon - to explain away someone's clear death, I'd be pretty miffed. That's bad writing.
Coulson's resurrection deserves something that is thought out and meaningful to the character rather than cut and paste in things from the 616 that clearly don't exist in the MCU.
Surley they'd use a LMD just incase...I don't know...Loki put his spear through Coulson's heart
They can easily explain a LMD. And it's certainly better than the holding breath excuse
