―Agent Tyler and Captain America[src]

Agent Tyler was at one point a mechanic on the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier. Between the Battle of New York and the attempted rescue of Franklin Hall, Tyler was presumably promoted to field agent. Agent Tyler was responsible for the transfer of Gravitonium to The Fridge, and the subsequent removal of the identification placard.


Before the Battle of New York


Tyler is confronted by Captain America

Tyler worked for S.H.I.E.L.D. as a mechanic during the events before the Battle of New York. While performing maintenance on a Quinjet after the Attack on the Helicarrier, he was approached by Captain America, Black Widow, and Hawkeye. Tyler initially told the trio that they were not authorized to use the Quinjet, to which Captain America replied "Son, just don't".[1]

The Fridge

After the Battle of New York, Tyler became a field agent. After the attempted rescue of Dr. Franklin Hall from Ian Quinn's compound in Malta, Phil Coulson instructed Tyler to take the Gravitonium that Quinn had obtained and to store it in The Fridge. Coulson further instructed Tyler to remove the identification placard from the storage entrance, due to Franklin Hall's concern that the Gravitonium was too dangerous and might fall into the wrong hands.[2]
