"When did you..."
"I thought it would be cool if the Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. had a shield. Fitz agreed, so..."
Melinda May and Phil Coulson[src]

The Energy Shield is a shield made of solidified light-blue energy that has the S.H.I.E.L.D. logo in the center surface. Which expands from Phil Coulson's Prosthetic Hand.

Energy Shield

Phil Coulson first uses the Energy Shield

As Coulson and Melinda May came to JT James' cabin in their search for Hive, they hid inside a hole in the floor from a bomb. The bomb exploded, and Coulson defended May and himself from it by using the Energy Shield.[1]

Coulson used the Energy Shield to defend himself from the gunshots of a prison guard infected by Lucy Bauer and to then knock the guard out.[2]

TP Shield

Phil Coulson saves the Patriot from Watchdogs

During the Attack on Jeffrey Mace, Coulson, Alphonso Mackenzie and Jeffrey Mace found themselves outnumbered and nearly defenseless as the Mace had used up all of his Patriot Serum and no longer had super strength as a result. Coulson used the Energy Shield again to defend himself and Jeffrey Mace from the gunshots of ex-HYDRA operatives, who had been hired by the Watchdogs until their allies arrived to assist them.[3]


The Superior is killed with the Energy Shield

While fighting against the Superior onboard the Ivanov Oil Platform, Coulson was pinned against a wall as the Superior put a gun under his chin and prepared to execute him. In response, Coulson activated his Energy Shield and cut through the Superior's Life-Model Decoy face, exposing his Quantum Brain and killing him.[4]
