Agents of SHIELD

The funny thing about comic book characters is that they rarely stay dead for long.

Agent Phil Coulson, despite getting stabbed in the back in The Avengers and dying in the arms of Nick Fury, has returned to the world of the living and will play a huge role in the upcoming TV series Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

At first it was believed the series would take place before the events of The Avengers, but it becomes clear that this is post-New York invasion when an interviewed agent describes himself as "Clearance Level 6" and explains that he knows Coulson was killed.

That's when Coulson shows up and says "Welcome to Level 7."
