Deke Shaw's Helmet was a helmet worn by Deke Shaw in the year 2091 for when he traveled the vacuum of space. The helmet was passed on to Flint when Shaw traveled back to the present with his S.H.I.E.L.D. allies.
Deke Shaw wore his helmet while going to investigate a Lighthouse floor who had been exposed to outer space when Vrellnexians attacked the people who were present. Shaw further made his way through the Lighthouse wearing his helmet and found more victims of the Vrellnexians. While searching the bodies and removing their Metrics, Shaw removed his helmet, enabling Melinda May, who was hiding nearby, to see his face before the two got into a short fight.
Days later, Shaw wore his helmet while searching the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents who were trying to escape from Kasius and the Kree Watch. He found Daisy Johnson, Jemma Simmons and Leo Fitz. Despite the helmet, Johnson recognized him and violently pushed him against a pipe, prompting Shaw to remark that it was a good thing he was wearing his helmet before Johnson removed it.
Shaw's helmet was later given to Flint, a young Inhuman who collaborated with S.H.I.E.L.D. Flint used the helmet to safely go into outer space so he could use his powers to gather small asteroids he hurled at the windows of Kasius' Suites, breaking the glass and causing the Kree guards who were present to be suck into space. Flint reached the Suites and once the breach was sealed, he removed the helmet.
Design and Capabilities
The helmet appears as a black and sophisticated device, with the eyes emitting blue light. The helmet is completely hermetic and airtight, enabling its user to safely go into outer space without risking asphyxia. When wearing the helmet, the user has access to a HUD, similar to that of the Iron Man armors, which gives them various information about themselves and their surroundings, like vital signs, oxygen level and helmet's integrity.
