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.

I'll find plausible if fairly common DNA test...

Question is are we talking about an average cop show DNA test or a SHIELD one? One of the points to SHIELD, even in the MCU as supposed to the comic books, is that they have advanced technology from the average cop show. Course the MCU has yet to show any sign of SHIELD having to deal with Skrull, Kree, or any number of other standard Marvel comic book alien races. Still, if they got DNA from everyone of the "not of Midgard in origin" characters that have traveled to Midgard in the Thor related films they'd not only have Aesir from Thor (and presumably Sif, Fandral and Volstagg), but Vanir from Hogun (it was established in Thor 2 he's from Vanaheim, not Asgard), and Jotun from Loki.

...a 'most likely alien' anomaly.

Of course that's assuming that the various beings from the other eight realms in the Nine Realms governed by the Aesir are different from Midgardians in a way that shows up genetically. While they certainly have abilities that aren't exhibited by the average Midgardian, mutants (which apparently are in some gray area between FOX and Marvel currently) are only supposed to be different from average humans by a genetic x-factor.
