The S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, who has featured in numerous Marvel Studios films, will debut in issue #6 of the miniseries.
"He's the viewpoint of the audience. He's the normal guy who's encountering all this strange superhuman stuff and reacting to it," Marvel executive editor Tom Brevoort told USA Today.
Agent Coulson, portrayed on screen by Clark Gregg, first appeared in the Iron Man movie, and will next be seen in The Avengers. His comic book counterpart will team up with Nick Fury's son Marcus Johnson.
"There is a great value in having new readers, people who come in after seeing the movies, and being able to pick up a comic that has the characters they recognise," said writer Chris Yost.
Battle Scars #6 arrives in stores this week.
