In Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 6, some of the protagonists find their way to the planet of Kitson, a planet that essentially has nothing but brothels and casinos. The planet is run by a Mr. Kitson. However, the creator of the comics Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was based on is named George Kitson, who also directed an episode of the series ("Paradise Lost"). Was Kitson intentionally named after George Kitson? If so, did that happen in the comics, or begin in the TV series?

    @shanu - Also fan-written. Plus a lot of their facts are copied verbatim from the wiki without any level of checking.

Almost certainly. Agent of SHIELD writer George Kitson repeatedly makes reference to the planet on his Twitter account.

I'm still waiting on those Planet Kitson royalties...

Per Twitter

and

I’m not an actor by any means, but I was CTU background on 24, a hand double on CSI, and was dressed, but never on camera as a soldier in G.I. Joe. (Oh, and of course, a profile of my face hung over the bar on the aptly named, infamous planet of Kitson in Agents of SHIELD....)

Per Twitter

and

You’re welcome on my planet anytime, Mr. Doyle! As the saying goes, what happens on Kitson.... (you know what, never mind what they say.)

Per Twitter

and

Q. Did they name Kitson after you????

GK: Or was I named after Kitson?

Per Twitter

Most notably, there was a giant picture of him emblazoned behind the bar.

Yes, it indeed is.

Atleast according to the trivia page of that epsiode's Imdb "The planet Kitson is named after George Kitson, writer and story editor of several episodes. "

    @PeterNielsen - Also IMDB Trivia is fan-written and frequently inaccurate.
