The Energy Shield is a shield made of energy that expands from Phil Coulson's Prosthetic Hand.
Phil Coulson came to Leo Fitz with an idea to have a shield, being the Director of S.H.I.E.L.D.. Fitz agreed with it, and put the function to create the Energy Shield in Phil Coulson's Prosthetic Hand.
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.
- In the comics, the Energy Shield was used by Captain America, given to him by Sharon Carter, while his shield was being repaired. Phil Coulson later also used the Energy Shield, having stolen it during the short period of time where he was no longer a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent.
