Although Power Broker has not yet been confirmed to appear in the series, his arrival is expected because of his connection to two characters who have already been introduced in the premiere.

In the comics, Jackson goes up against US Agent aka John Walker, who has been introduced as the new Captain America in New World Order. However, some believe that the two will end up working together in the series in an effort to give John the superpowers he needs to be the new Cap.

Although Power Broker is not connected to Joaquin Torres, he is involved with the villain who did something terrible to the character. Jackson hired Dr. Karl Malus, who experimented on Joaquin and turned him into a human/bird hybrid in the comics. If Jackson is in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier and is creating drugs for super strength, there is a possibility that Malus will show up as well.
