Marvel's "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." might have a hard time dealing with a new super-powered character in season 4.

As previously reported, the new season will feature Ghost Rider, who possesses powers that the team has never encountered before. While he could be a potential asset, he is not joining the team anytime soon. According to Coulson portrayer Clark Gregg, the character will be one of the biggest threats as the new season opens.

"He's a different kind of threat than anything we've faced before," said Gregg in his interview with Entertainment Weekly.

"It introduces a part of the Marvel world that deals more with strange elements of the Marvel Universe and he's definitely the villain from hell," he added.

Season 4 will feature the Robbie Reyes and not the Johnny Blaze version of Ghost Rider. According to reports, the writers of the series picked the Los Angeles mechanic over the other because he holds a high regard for his family, which is very fitting for the theme of the show. However, fans should not expect his family-friendly side to show in the first few episodes of the new series.

Coulson is not the only one to deal with Ghost Rider. The official trailer for the new season shows Daisy, who is on her own mission after leaving S.H.I.E.L.D., will face him too.

"You don't get to decide who deserves to die," Daisy tells Ghost Rider.

"I'm not the one who decides," he responds.

"Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." season 4 premiered on Tuesday, 10:00 P.M. on ABC.
