Chicago’s Chloe Bennet gets heroic in new ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ costume

Chicago native Chloe Bennet will look more super than ever as she dons her new crimefighting costume on “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”

Her hacker character Skye is now revealed to be Agent Daisy Johnson, known to comic book fans as the superhero Quake. She has seismic powers and a suit to match.

Bennet revealed her new look Monday on Twitter.

“It was really, really fun to put it on. With the inner geek in me — and growing up with six brothers — I was never really interested in being the princess,” Bennet told the Los Angeles Times. “I was more into being someone who kicked a– and was a superhero. So, that was a dream come true.”

Bennet, 23, was known as Chloe Wang when she grew up near the United Center and attended St. Ignatius College Prep.

The new season of “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD” begins Sept. 29 on WLS-Channel 7.
