    I did a quick translation of the symbols in the upper right corner of the blackboard screencap, and I came up with this for the row on the far right, top to bottom:

    C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K, L

    Then this for the middle one:

    A, B, O, W, E, R , T

    Couldn't get 4 of the first 6 on the left row:

    , , C, , L, , O, !, A, B, C

    Not much to go on there, maybe it's the beginning of a tutorial for their language.

    I know it's done a lot in these things but the direct symbol to letter translation isn't how different languages using different letter symbols works...Even languages using mostly the same alphabet (English, French, Spanish, German etc) end up with very different words.

    Bugged me when I first saw a Kryptonian 'alphabet'. Marvel have done it in the books more recently with the 'builders code' language.

    Hell, the best & brightest here couldn't decipher ancient Greek & Egyptian until they found the 'Rosetta Stone' to help them figure it out.

    You are absolutely correct. However, I have absolutely ZERO complaints about that. I think it's cool when I can 'translate' something from the movies just by spending some time on figuring out the code and it is more than just a bit of gobbledygook.

    In the MCU, the Agardian language has always been translatable in this way, and they have been consistent in the coding. Mjolnir, the inscriptions in Odin's vault, the floor of the throne room, the Book of Yggdrasil, and even the berserker staff can all be translated (i have translated all of them), and they all say something that is unique and makes sense. IMO, it helps create a 'culture' for the Asgardians and adds depth to the fictional world. (the only time they cut corners was on Loki's handcuffs, which has the same inscription as Mjolnir. that was a let down).

    Maybe the alien language in the MCU is more complex, but I hope that if someone does figure out the code (as The Shrike is trying to do), it can apply to all other uses of that language in-universe.

    I think The Shrike is referring to the Skrull language symbols (the 3 vertical lines of distinct symbols), not the 'Coulson code' of lines & circles? (I don't think there's any pattern to that we could translate atm)

    There are a few deciphered versions (English alphabet applied) of those Skrull symbols (a google image search brings up a few).

    I had the craziest dream that I was watching the premier of season 2 and it was jam packed with Marvel characters. Iron Fist, Deadpool, and a ton of others I can't remember off the top of my head now. I was so excited and then I woke up and realized I was dreaming which sucked.

    She's so much cuter when she's allowed to smile. Too bad May always has such a stick up her ass.

    Ah yes, Ming Na, the only good part of the 1994 Street Fighter movie.

    Saw Winter Soldier with my kids who saw it for the first time and they said seeing it brought alot light to what happened in SHIELD during the last few shows.

    Which language is it, tho? Kree, Skrull, other?

    I've long suspected/anticipated that Coulson would be linked w/the Kree. Now he at least has Kree blood flowing thru his veins. Hope they take the connection to the extremes next season. Maybe Director Coulson becomes cosmically aware like Mar-Vell and starts sensing/dealing with alien races. That'd be cool. ;-)

    Has to be Kree, Chole accidentally let it out in an interview, but even then it might just be symbols for something technological. Electrical diagrams/plans look alot like that

    I doubt that Danvers is going to be introduced on a TV show. She's big league. Some of the minor Kree might appear, tho. Maybe Yon-Rogg will show up, or a random Sentry. :ninja:
