"The Monoliths could be used to open a doorway between our world and the world that Izel comes from."
Marcus Benson[src]

The Fear Dimension is a dimension in the Multiverse inhabited by non-corporeal beings that long for a physical body. This dimension was initially hypothesized by Leo Fitz as an explanation for the manifested fears of those exposed to the combined energy remains of the exploded Monoliths when in fact it was the "creation" energy from one of the Monoliths that is able to open a portal to this dimension.


Ancient Times

"Thousands of years ago, she escaped from a realm of fear and darkness. And after she escaped, she tried to track down relics from her realm called the Di'Allas to regain power."
Alphonso Mackenzie[src]

Tear in Space-Time

Explosion at the Lighthouse

"I think that when the Monoliths exploded, they tore open something that I can only describe as a Fear Dimension."
Leo Fitz[src]

A rift in space-time was created due to an explosion that destroyed together a White Monolith, a Grey Monolith, and a Black Monolith. The explosion created a connection between the Fear Dimension and the Earth.[1]

Violent Illusions

Deke Fake Kree

An illusion of a Kree warrior from the Fear Dimension attacks Deke Shaw

"So, Kree Warrior. Check."
"And if that is Lash, double-check."
"What about that forest on Level 27? "
"You mean an overwhelming collection of branchy things with birds and bugs and the floor all covered in worms? Are you kidding? That's a horror show."
"Okay, triple check."
Daisy Johnson, Melinda May, Phil Coulson and Deke Shaw[src]

Multiple illusions were generated by the Fear Dimension by tapping into the mind of the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents who were hiding in the Lighthouse. Lash destroyed D.W.A.R.F.s sent by Leo Fitz to investigate the explosion of the Monoliths, enabling Fitz to figure out the nature of the space-time rift. Deke Shaw's ignorance of real life on Earth and fear of insects created a gigantic forest while Daisy Johnson's fears manifested in the form of a Kree Warrior who attacked her and Shaw, as well as a nun, which was spotted by the D.W.A.R.F.s.[2] Elena Rodriguez's fear of robots manifested as LMD Jemma, who attempted to kill her while she was unable to defend herself, due to her amputated arms from Ruby Hale.

Closing the Rift

Closure of the Fear Dimension Rift

The Fear Dimension opened in the Lighthouse

" I was hoping there was enough Gravitonium with some modifications to create a perpetual force that can stitch together the tear in spacetime."
Leo Fitz[src]

In an attempt to shut down the Fear Dimension, Leo Fitz created a Gravity Containment Device out of Deke Shaw's Gravity Puck. Phil Coulson chose to be the one to take the device to the rift, where its activation would close the tear in spacetime. However, once arrived, Coulson encountered an illusion of Mike Peterson, who tried to convince Coulson that everything he had lived, from the creation of his team to the events in 2091, were made up by his brain while he was being resurrected.

Spacetime Rift Contained

The Fear Dimension is contained by the first Gravity Containment Device

Peterson's illusion attempted to take Coulson to the rift and almost succeeded before Coulson stated that he did not believe him. As the illusion was destroyed by the real Deathlok coming to aid Coulson, other illusions generated by the Fear Dimension attacked them: Lash, Hive and Vrellnexians. However, all the illusions were destroyed and Coulson activated the Gravity Containment Device, which temporarily shut down the Fear Dimension.[2]

Astronaut Illusion

The Fear Dimension creates an illusion of Hive

Nevertheless, Fitz was aware that the device they used was not powerful enough to completely close the rift, which kept generating illusions from time to time. As such, an illusion of Deke Shaw's mother was created, only to be destroyed by a Kree Warrior in front of Shaw himself. Shaw then destroyed the illusion of the Kree Warrior.[3]

Permanent Closure Fear Dimension

The two Gravity Containment Devices combine to seal the Fear Dimension

Only when S.H.I.E.L.D. brought back Gravitonium from the Principia did they get a chance to permanently close the Fear Dimension, which once again created an illusion of Hive in his astronaut form. Fitz struggled to find a way to compress the Gravitonium and insert it into a new Gravity Containment Device. This led to the release of his dark personality from the Framework, The Doctor, who took control and captured Daisy Johnson, removing her Inhuman Control Device and restoring her powers. With it, Johnson successfully compressed the Gravitonium and took the new Gravity Containment Device to the rift, where both the devices combined and sealed the Fear Dimension.[4]
