Xena gets a new suit

Lucy Lawless has joined the season two cast of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Best known for her role as the Xena in the ’90s television hit Xena: Warrior Princess, Lawless will get to try her hand at something completely different, portraying veteran S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Isabelle Hartley, who assists Director Coulson (Clark Gregg) with his unenviable task of rebuilding S.H.I.E.L.D into the formidable spy agency it once was.

No word yet on whether or not her character gets a vibranium chakram. One can only hope.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D premieres on September 23.
