- "Oh my god, is that a handheld hypno-beam? "
- ―Phil Coulson
Antoine Triplett retrieved his grandfather's Howling Commando gear and offered it to Phil Coulson as a tactical advantage during the undercover investigation on Cybertek and the missions to come. The Hand-held Hypno Beam was among these items.
As Coulson, a collector of vintage items, was introducing the gear to his team, he was amazed that there was an original Hand-held Hypno Beam among them. Coulson and Triplett both noted that the specifications had changed over the years, mentioning that the switch on the bottom had been moved to the side.
