"There's a couple-hundred feet of volcanic rock on top of it."
"S.H.I.E.L.D. has tech that can drill right through it, that means HYDRA has it."
"Yeah, plasma drill, that would make light work of it."
―Agent Koenig, Jemma Simmons and Leo Fitz[src]

The Plasma Drill is a S.H.I.E.L.D. equipment used by HYDRA to drill a hole above the underground Kree City.


Most of the equipment owned by S.H.I.E.L.D. became owned by HYDRA also due to the infiltration of HYDRA in S.H.I.E.L.D.; that included the Plasma Drill.

HYDRA learned the location of the Kree City was above the Ponce de León Theater in San Juan. After establishing the abandoned theater as a temporary base, the terrorists used the drill to cut through the volcanic rock to make a hole to the city. Raina was watching the drill work when an operative summoned her to a meeting Daniel Whitehall was having.

During the Battle for the Kree City, Raina stole the Diviner and entered the hole that the plasma drill had cut. When Skye saw the equipment, she pursued Raina.

Melinda May and Phil Coulson saw the plasma drill when they reached the bottom of the theater. Coulson entered the hole to save Skye; May stayed topside and told Bobbi Morse and Lance Hunter to flee when they reached the drill. May was beside the drill as an earthquake occurred.[1]
