"At S.H.I.E.L.D., we do better than duct tape."
Alphonso Mackenzie[src]

The Overpowering Tape is a device used by S.H.I.E.L.D. to restrain criminals as an alternative to handcuffs.


Rescue in the Colombian Police Station

Elena Rodriguez was supplied with these devices by Agent Daisy Johnson and used them to restrain numerous officers of the National Police of Colombia without harming them.

Rodriguez later used an Overpowering Tape to restrain Lucio; however, he managed to paralyze her and make her snap back into a wall.[1]

Retaking of Zephyr One

During the Retaking of Zephyr One, Rodriguez used the Overpowering Tape again in combination with her superhuman speed to restrain and take out multiple HYDRA operatives at the Schoonebeek Oil Field.

The Overpowering Tape was also used by Lincoln Campbell to subdue Gideon Malick.[2]
