"I'm talking about Aida, specifically. I mean, she did, after all, bring you and Agent Fitz back from... well, wherever the hell you were."
Jeffrey Mace to Phil Coulson[src]

The Rescue from the Interdimensional Void was an attempt by S.H.I.E.L.D. to help Phil Coulson, Leo Fitz, and Robbie Reyes escape the interdimensional vacuum they were trapped in.


Attack on the Roxxon Power Plant

"Lucy and her friends were stuck in between, and now we are, too."
"Trapped between dimensions?"
"Yeah, that shock wave... That wasn't turbulence... That was... that was... friction between two dimensions."
Leo Fitz and Phil Coulson[src]

The S.H.I.E.L.D. team went to stop Lucy Bauer from activating a machine that could cause catastrophic damage in her attempt to become corporeal again. They were also there to attempt to save Eli Morrow, who was taken prisoner by her to complete the machine. Ghost Rider was able to kill Bauer, but Morrow, who already was obsessed with completing the machine, finished it and put himself into the contraption. When the machine activated, the shockwave hit Phil Coulson, Leo Fitz, and Reyes, making their bodies out of phase with the Earth realm, effectively leaving them stranded between two dimensions, while allowing Morrow to have the ability to create matter.[3][1]

Sinking into Hell

"If I'm being dragged down to Hell, this might be my chance to take Eli with me. Sorry, Coulson."
Robbie Reyes to Phil Coulson[src]

The longer they were out of phase with the Earth realm, the three started to feel the pull of another dimension trying to bring them further from their own. The Spirit of Vengeance also felt the pull from its home dimension and desperate to avoid returning there, it abandoned Robbie Reyes and took possession of Alphonso Mackenzie. Reyes, riding with Daisy Johnson, followed him and made a new deal with the Spirit that if it helps him stop Eli Morrow, he will settle all its scores. The spirit accepted and merged with Reyes again.[1]


"She's a computer."
"Perfect. Then it's just a download. She's the tech we need to save them."
Holden Radcliffe and Melinda May[src]

Unable to find other options, Melinda May insisted that they us the Darkhold to bring back her teammates. She showed the book to Holden Radcliffe but after a quick glance, he closed it, saying the information was too much for the human mind to process. Wit some help from Fitz, Aida suggested she should loo at the book. It was revealed to May and Coulson that Aida was an Life-Model Decoy so she might be able to handle the information. She read the book and found the solution to save them.[1]

The Way Out

"I'm building an inter-dimensional gateway with an android I've created. If this works, I could die happy."
"We've put our faith in a robot who says she hears ghosts. If it fails, you might die quickly."
"They're here. I promise."
Holden Radcliffe, Melinda May, and Aida[src]

Making the Laser-Coupling Gloves, Aida made the Inter-Dimensional Gate. As a portal was formed, Phil Coulson and Leo Fitz were struggling to reach it as they fought against the pull of Hell. But they were able to push through and made it back to their own dimension.[1]

Later, Robbie Reyes, accompanied the Spirit of Vengeance, used the gate to return to Earth as well.[1]


"That Arch-gateway thing that saved the team on their last mission... Aida designed and built it, yes?"
"Which proves how valuable she can be."
Jeffrey Mace and Holden Radcliffe[src]

The Inter-Dimensional Gate would later be used in the Battle at the Chinatown Crew Headquarters to stop Eli Morrow.[4] By reading the Darkhold, both Holden Radcliffe and Aida suffered from corruption, and planned to use it to fulfill their desires and gave them the means to make a perfect brain for Life-Model Decoy.[1]
