Rosalind “Roz” Solomon-Agent of SHIELD Biography
Roz Solomon is a unique character in the Marvel Universe. She is an Environmental SHIELD Agent, meaning that her assignments take her up against environmental threats such as Roxxon, a multi-national energy company.
Her first appearance came in Thor: God of Thunder #12, where she is seen at the graduation ceremony/reception for new SHIELD agents. Rosalind Solomon is one of those new SHIELD academy grads, and she had posted a video invitation for Thor to join her at the ceremony. Since Asgard has not hooked up to the internet yet, had to be informed by Tony Stark of the invitation. Thor, who had only recently returned to Midgard (Earth), gladly showed up. Solomon, who trained to be an environmental investigator for SHIELD, tells Thor that she wants him to help her save the Earth. Thor, not knowing what an Environmentalist is, asks her to dance, instead.
Later in this issue, Thor does arrive on scene to help Agent Solomon, who has been assigned to SHIELD’s Environmental Investigation Team, as she tries to connect the discovery of a whale graveyard in Antarctica to a deep-sea mining operation by Roxxon.
In later issues of Thor: God of Thunder, Roz Solomon helps Thor deal with Roxxon and the evil CEO of the company, Dario Agger, as Agger buys the town of Broxton (which sits just next to the floating realm of Asgardia), in order to tick off Thor and provoke a battle that would enable Agger to file a lawsuit against Thor. As we see in the battle scenes in Broxton, Roz Solomon is one tough cookie, as she uses her SHIELD training, high tech weapons, and innate fighting skills to bring down multiple Trolls (working for Ulik the Troll, who is in turn working for Agger and Roxxon), saving lives, and managing to survive the whole thing. And along the way, everyone starts referring to her as “Thor’s new girlfriend,” despite the fact that she keeps denying that she and Thor are in a relationship.
Roz Solomon was put on the list compiled by Thor Odinson as he tries to figure out who the new, Female Thor may be in real life. At this point (as of Thor #7), it is undetermined if Roz Solomon is the new Thor, though quite a bit of evidence points in that direction.
