Agent Coulson lives! Oh and don’t touch Lola.

So I’m thinking of starting a betting pool for the Coulson Lives explanation:
1. Extremis, for the Iron Man 3 tie-in, or a similar wonder-drug
2. He’s a cyborg in some way. (he seemed to walk funny in the promo)
3. He’s a clone. Though I thought one of the people on the show stated it was “really him” and not a clone, I couldn’t locate a reference quickly.
4. Some combination of cryogenic stasis and one of the above.
It looks great, I hope it lives up to the hype. I also hope they either find ways to keep the budget under control or that the ratings are high enough that they don’t mind spending the cash to keep it going.

His clone, Ben Reilly, survived the plummet at Reichenbach Falls after Willow Rosenberg cast a spell using the Genesis Torpedo she found in the shower with Bobby Ewing. For the first few episodes, he’ll wear a black and silver outfit.
I suppose I could throw in three dozen other characters but, Jesus Christ, isn’t this enough?

Well at least you threw in JC… ;-)

I’m betting on option 5: Nick Fury lied about him being dead in the first place to give the team something to rally around. Straight up lies and manipulation.

That certainly does seem to be the most logical choice, and fits what was said/seen, but is much less fun to speculate about :-)

It may be less fun to speculate but its credible. It doesn’t smell of classic comic character indestructibility.

No need for him to be indestructible.
My new favorite theory is that the Coulson that died in The Avengers was a Life Model Decoy. Stark even mentioned Life Model Decoys in passing earlier in the movie.
And hey, why not just let people vote. I made a Google Form for it:
