Sitting at work, waiting for a ride home, and pondering the next SHIELD Team 7 story. So, my questions: if a person were half Midgardian half Asgardian , and DNA were run how intensive would the test have to be to raise a flag? I'm thinking there probably already is Asgardian blood on Earth, all those wars and visits... Anyway, I know next to nothing on the subject, and would like the section of the story dealing with it to be at least somewhat plausible.

Other question : does anybody remember Agents of SHIELD giving any sort of time reference to May's 'cavalry' incident? Not sure how long ago it happened.

For $159.95 at DNA Test For Ancestry from National Geographic you can --

• Discover the migration paths your ancient ancestors followed hundreds—even thousands—of years ago, with an unprecedented view of your ancestral journey.
• Learn what percentage of your genome is affiliated with specific regions of the world.
• Find out if you have Neanderthal or Denisovan ancestry.
• Have the opportunity to share your story and connect with other Genographic Project participants, helping us fill in the gaps in the human story.

I'm thinking, if they can tell you whether or not your DNA is 3% Neanderthal for that, they could tell you what percentage Asgardian you where at a lot lower percentage than 50%/50%. Hell, depending on when and how they started screening for Asgardian DNA they might be able to tell you how closely related you are or aren't to Thor and-or Sif, and-or one of the Warriors Three, and-or Loki. Question is when/how they built their "Asgardian" genome.

Sadly I don't remember if Agents of SHIELD has given any sort of time reference to May's 'cavalry' incident. :(

ETA: Didn't think to mention that, if we are talking about someone who is 50%/50%--"if a person were half Midgardian half Asgardian," while the Asgardians might be getting treated as aliens rather than gods in the MCU, that would still be at a level that is "demi-god" status, and not only should it be readily detectible if there are clear genetic differences between Midgardian and Asgardian it should also mean the Asgardian half gives the individual super powers.
