Early Life

Quote1Why did you join S.H.I.E.L.D. in the first place?"
"I was a 17-year-old girl with two Phds and a million questions. S.H.I.E.L.D. had the resources to help me answer them.
--Sunil Bakshi and Jemma Simmons

Jemma Simmons was born on Friday, September 11th, 1987 in Ashburton, Devon, England. During her youth, Simmons was bed-ridden by Scoliosis; her father, to relieve her boredom, would place her bed outdoors so they could stargaze together. A 17-year old biochemistry genius with two PhD's, Jemma Simmons started attending the S.H.I.E.L.D. Academy of Science and Technology in 2004, where she met who would become her best friend, the engineering genius Leo Fitz. One of her main reasons for joining was to get answers to millions of questions. Among their instructors were Professor Vaughn and Professor Franklin Hall, who taught chemical kinetics during their second year.

Simmons and Fitz graduated from the academy three years early. Wanting to see more than the inside of a lab, and against the advice of Professor Vaughn, Simmons convinced Fitz to seek out a field assignment.


She was recruited by Agent Phil Coulson to be a part of his new team along with Leo Fitz. She was brought on board because of her expertise as a biochemist. On her first mission she and Fitz designed the "Night-Night Gun," in order to capture the superhuman Mike Peterson, as his body was chemically unstable.

Later Simmons and Fitz upgraded the "Night-Night Gun" into a more compact pistol.

On a later mission Simmons was exposed to a Chitauri virus, which would eventually overload her with electricity and kill her. Put in quarantine, she attempted to create a cure while Fitz helped from the outside. Eventually the two of them realized they should try to engineer antibodies from the Chitauri who had the virus, as it had been immune. The cure was synthesized, but Simmons believed it had failed as the mouse exposed to it had passed out. In order to stop the virus from spreading she attempted suicide, by jumping out of the Bus mid-flight. Agent Ward however managed to catch her as she fell, and administered the cure. There have so far been no side effects to the virus and treatment.

When Agent Ward and Fitz were recruited by Agent Hand for a secret mission, Skye convinced Simmons to help her find out where the two of them were. Simmons caved, and they attempted to hack S.H.I.E.L.D.'s computers at the Hub. There she was confronted by Agent Sitwell, causing Simmons to panic and shoot him with the so called "Night-Night Pistol." Skye was then able to learn that Ward and Fitz had been given no rescue, and Coulson's Team went off to save them.

After an adventure where Mike was supposedly killed and Coulson temporarily captured by Centipede, Simmons and Fitz were called to visit the S.H.I.E.L.D. Academy. A student had nearly been frozen by technology they had developed, such as Simmons' crystalline process. As she and Fitz were speaking to the students a student was suddenly encased in ice, forcing the two of them to rescue him. After they realized who had utilized the device, the team was forced to dodge a man-made storm made by the now completed Atmospheric Moisture Freezing Device. In the end one of the students responsible was killed, while the other was transferred to the Sandbox.

In a mission to capture Ian Quinn, a man with connections to many of the obstacles Coulson's team had faced, the agents went undercover aboard a train. When the team was discovered and scattered by attackers, Simmons attempted to save Skye and Fitz by taking a grenade meant for them. Luckily the grenade was designed to temporarily paralyze, and not kill, reverse engineered from the Night-Night Gun. After waking up Simmons discovered Skye had been shot. She managed to keep her alive for the moment, and continued to monitor her until most of the team returned with a cure.

Afterwards Simmons became fascinated with the restorative properties of the GH.325, and began to take samples of Skye's blood in an attempt to detect the drug. Unable to find any, she found herself more and more frustrated at Coulson, who refused to let her tell the rest of S.H.I.E.L.D. of the drug, preventing her from having better equipment to learn of the drug.

Finally Simmons was ordered to the Hub, which she accepted eagerly to use their resources to synthesis the drug. However before she could go into her work she was interrupted by Agent Triplett. Informing him of her plan, she resumed work on the drug, before contacting the S.H.I.E.L.D. Academy through his higher clearance. She was only able to maintain the connection briefly, but during that time she learned that S.H.I.E.L.D. had been infiltrated by Hydra. After a brief moment of paranoia between the two agents, they were captured by Agent Hand's men. Simmons was able to prove her loyalty to S.H.I.E.L.D., but learned that Hand believed Coulson was secretly a Hydra Agent. Simmons found herself considering the possibility thanks to Coulson's refusal to speak of the GH.325, but by the time she and Hand met up with Coulson, he had proven his innocence, and Hand now knew the identity of the Clairvoyant, the Hydra agent responsible for many of the team's battles and enemies.

Simmons along with the rest of Coulson's team minus Ward maintained the Hub as long as they could with the loyal agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. However the military were sent after them, given how S.H.I.E.L.D. was now regarded as a terrorist group. Coulson's team prepared to leave, though Coulson refused to let Triplett go with them. Simmons defended him and eventually Coulson agreed, and the six agents departed. Coulson soon received a message, and despite the reservations of the team they arrived at a secret base in Canada, where they could refuel and recover.

Agent Koenig, the man in charge of the secret base, refused to trust the team until they were subjected to an advanced lie detection test. Jemma passed, before being sent on a mission with Fitz, Triplett, and Coulson to catch one of the criminals who had escaped the Fridge. After supposedly destroying the foe, the team returned to find the rest of their team missing.

As the team looked for clues to the team's disappearance, Simmons discovered Agent Koenig's corpse. She was able to analyze it and prove that Ward was indeed the killer, coupled with a message from Skye warning them of Ward's allegiance to Hydra, the team prepared to track Ward down, when the base was invaded by the military. After a brief surrender, Coulson with the aid of Maria Hill managed to lead the team to escape, and they followed after Ward. They were able to free Skye from him, before they retreated to a hotel.

Coulson's team was able to track Ward and Garrett to Cuba, where Fitz and Simmons were captured. Fitz managed to use an EMP on Garrett's implants, bringing him close to death. In response Ward was ordered to kill the two scientists, which he attempted by jettisoning them from the Bus. Despite being stuck at the bottom of the ocean, the two scientists were able to brainstorm a way to break out of the container and swim to the surface. Unfortunately, they only had enough oxygen for one person, so Fitz decides to sacrifice himself, confessing how he truly felt for Simmons. Nonetheless, Simmons drags Fitz all the way to the surface, where they are rescued by Nick Fury himself, having found them through their makeshift beacon. Simmons was put in a depressurization tank while Fitz was given to a medical team. Simmons then gave the Bus' location to Fury, who went to assist Coulson.

Later, Simmons reunited with her teammates at the Playground, where they are introduced to Eric's identical twin, Billy.

Rebuilding S.H.I.E.L.D.

Sometime after Coulson took up his duties as the director of the newly reformed S.H.I.E.L.D, Simmons joined Hydra as an undercover agent. However, Coulson explained her absence by saying she left the team, which caused Fitz, who was already brain damaged from his near-death experience, to become increasingly mentally unstable, even hallucinating that Simmons was still right by his side.

While she was working as a scientist for Hydra, the organization had her study a sample of cells that were able to produce liquid nitrogen, which she soon realized came from Donnie Gill. When Hydra realized she had a previous history with Donnie, she was interrogated by Sunil Bakshi to test her loyalty to them. She swore she had no idea the cells she was studying belonged to Donnie, and that she was still loyal to Hydra. Bakshi gave Simmons the opportunity to prove her loyalty when they tracked Donnie down to a boat in the port of Casablanca. Although Gill had a record of killing any Hydra agents that were sent after him, Bakshi had Simmons go on the boat alone, hoping their history together would keep him from attacking. Simmons was able to contact him and started to tell him the lines Bakshi was feeding to her, but they were interrupted by shots from Lance Hunter, a mercenary working for Coulson. Donnie realized what was really going on and attacked Simmons, but she was able to get away with him and run back to a team of heavily-armed Hydra agents. Donnie followed her, but Bakshi stepped in front of him and was able to use a coded phrase to reactivate him as a Hydra agent. Bakshi ordered Donnie to ice the boat, killing everyone inside, but Skye was able to take him out as a sniper before he could. Simmons, her cover intact, went back to Hydra's offices, while Bakshi told his superior Daniel Whitehall it was time for her to meet him in person.

Simmons and her boss Kenneth Turgeon were eventually personally called upon by Dr. Whitehall to look into ways to weaponize the Obelisk. After this meeting, Simmons left the Hydra offices to communicate this information to S.H.I.E.L.D. using a sheet of plastic that could be disguised as a discarded menu. Not long after she returned, Hydra had gotten word that there was a mole inside their office. With one of the plastic sheets in hand, the investigation was led by Bobbi Morse, Hydra's chief of security. While she was questioning Simmons as to her loyalties, another Hydra agent found one of the plastic sheets at Kenneth's workstation. Kenneth was soon knocked out and taken away. With the investigation over, Simmons went into the bathroom to calm down, but Morse fallowed her in there and resumed her questioning. Simmons told her she could have a look at her hard drive to prove her loyalty to Hydra, ending the interrogation. Once Simmons left the bathroom, however, every Hydra agent had received a picture of Simmons sending the information to S.H.I.E.L.D., a picture Raina sent to them when Coulson refused to hand Skye over to her. With her cover blown, Simmons made a mad dash for the exit, but found herself cornered by Bakshi on one side and Morse on the other. Morse however attacked the Hydra agents by her side, revealing herself as another undercover S.H.I.E.L.D. agent working for Coulson. Morse and Simmons made their way to the roof of the building, where a cloaked quinjet was waiting to get them out of there.

Back at the Playground, Simmons couldn't help but ramble about how Morse took down so many Hydra agents. While she was doing this, she saw Fitz in the distance, and Coulson told her to go see him.

Simmons noted that Grant Ward had no way of knowing the time, but every morning at 5:30 he awakened and exercised. Skye asked her how she knew that; Simmons was stationed to watch Ward before she went undercover. Their conversation was interrupted by Melinda May alerting them that the United Nations was attacked.

When Simmons saw that those hit during HYDRA's attack on the United Nations Headquarters were disintegrated, she helped identify Toshiro Mori from the hard drive that was obtained from HYDRA Laboratories. Coulson asked her to learn more from the hard drive.

Going to Fitz for help in accessing the hard drive, the two started arguing about why Simmons left. She could not handle the conversation and left Fitz to his work. Alphonso Mackenzie assisted Fitz, and when Simmons returned, they told her that the Splinter Bombs were created by Vincent Beckers.

When Ward, being transferred to federal custody, went by her, Simmons promised to kill him if they ever met again.

Simmons went to the garage to thank Mackenzie for his help and his friendship with Fitz. Mackenzie told her that Fitz was better without her; she tearfully agreed.

Simmons berated Alphonso Mackenzie for his words of bravado when he and Leo Fitz brought the body of Janice Robbins to her so she could perform an autopsy. She learned that the knife cuts on her did not kill her but the trauma and pain did.

She accompanied Skye and Phil Coulson to the secret room holding the Theta Brain-Wave Frequency Machine; Coulson wanted to remember the past pertaining to Project T.A.H.I.T.I. and his and Robbins' connection to it. Simmons reminded Coulson that, after six months of research, she and Fitz still did not fully understand the machine. Coulson proceeded nonetheless and Simmons was stationed to watch his vitals as he recalled the past. When Coulson could no longer handle the experience, Simmons ordered the session to end.

Afterwards, Simmons wondered where Skye went and asked Alphonso Mackenzie and Fitz who were playing video games. Simmons saw on the video monitor to Vault D Skye waving to the camera; Coulson locked her inside with the Inertial Confinement Laser Barrier and left. Simmons freed Skye, who went to chase the Director.

Later, Simmons was among the assembled senior agents when Director Coulson gave the new mission: find the city that matched the City Blueprints before HYDRA can.

As Bobbi Morse interrogated Sunil Bakshi, Simmons showed her admiration for her being that close to him. Simmons suggested to Melinda May that they procure old SSR files to find what connection Daniel Whitehall had to the Red Skull, causing May to open Vault B. Simmons loved that she was touching the same files as her hero and S.H.I.E.L.D. founder Peggy Carter. When she saw the picture of Werner Reinhardt, Simmons realized that he was Whitehall; however, her research could not find the secret of Reinhardt's youth.

Simmons inspected Antoine Triplett's wounds when he returned to the Playground from Australia and told him that she was thankful that he survived his mission. Before Triplett could tell her about Calvin Zabo, Skye's father, Skye interrupted and the three discussed him together.

Simmons was chosen to accompany Phil Coulson to Puerto Rico to destroy the city that matched the City Blueprints. While preparing for the trip, she shared with Bobbi Morse her feelings about Leo Fitz, the coma he experienced, and how she was not ready for a relationship with him greater than friendship. Upon arrival, the silence between the two scientists caused Mack to leave them alone to talk privately. Tearfully, Simmons attempted to explain to Fitz why she left him to go undercover months ago; Fitz interrupted her to say that he could not work with her. She misinterpreted his statement and asked if he was quitting S.H.I.E.L.D.; Fitz felt it best that he work for her, making her leader of the science team.

Inside Castillo San Cristóbal, Simmons and Fitz prepared the D.W.A.R.F.s to test the structural integrity of the city so when they destroyed it, it would not affect the residents of San Juan. When the drones lost power, Mackenzie was sent into the hundred foot shaft to investigate. Hearing his screams, he was hoisted up; Mackenzie then slapped Coulson across the room. During the battle, Simmons was hit and began to fall into the hole. Coulson, ordering Fitz to shoot the super-strong mechanic, grabbed Simmons and struggled to stop her fall. As Mackenzie approached Simmons and Coulson, Morse used her battle staves to electrocute him; stunned, he fell into the hundred foot hole just as Coulson saved Simmons.

Simmons, along with Fitz and Antoine Triplett, in containment suits, then went down to the Kree City to plant explosives and to see if Mackenzie survived. They witnessed Triplett return to the city to defuse the bombs when he learned that Skye and Phil Coulson entered. An earthquake occurred as she waited with Fitz and they hugged in panic as the island shook.

Simmons was in charge of a team of scientists mapping the Kree City. Her teams planned to document, then flood, the area so neither HYDRA nor any one else could harness it. When her team found the remains of Antoine Triplett, she shouted for them to handle it carefully. However, two scientists were dragged off and killed by a transformed Raina. Simmons shot at Raina and managed to hit her several times; however, Raina still escaped up a lift. Simmons reported this to Phil Coulson who allowed her to return to the Playground, since Simmons wanted to check on Skye.

Back at the Playground, Simmons told Skye who was in quarantine about her encounter with Raina. She showed her that Raina's genetic makeup had changed and said that aliens should be neutralised to prevent an epidemic. When Skye pointed out the harshness of her stated conclusion, Simmons told Skye that everything was her fault, including the death of Triplett, because of her interest in superpowers. She decided that instead of her dedicating half of her life trying to understand alien technology and biology, she should have been focused on trying to exterminate it.

Skye tried to refute her claim pointing out that she had helped plenty people with powers; Simmons pointed out the hostile ones like Donnie Gill, Chan Ho Yin, and Carl Creel. Simmons even noted that the Avengers themselves would not be necessary if they did not unleash an alien invasion on the world. As Melinda May and Coulson wondered what to do about Raina, Simmons voiced that killing Raina would not be the worst scenario.

Simmons returned to Skye's cell when Leo Fitz brought her blood test results; the test said that Skye was normal. Unknown to Simmons, Fitz gave false results to quiet Simmons' possible fear of her until everyone would be more receptive of her change.

Simmons and the other senior agents then sat remembering Triplett with Skye pointing out they would laugh a lot less with him gone.

Simmons later came across the real results of Skye's blood test on Fitz's computer, and noticed how extraordinary they were. Fitz told her that the data was simply a simulation he had done. She was amazed at the accuracy, but believed him.

After Skye's powers began firing out of control, Simmons realized Fitz had lied to her about the blood test results. She was deeply hurt, and told him so. She told him that the first time she had ever lied to him was when she went undercover for HYDRA.

Doctor Andrew Garner came aboard the Bus to work with Skye, and Fitz and Simmons briefly discussed May and Garner. For a moment, their relationship seemed to improve, but Simmons soon began ignoring Fitz again.

Simmons made it quite clear that she intended to help suppress Skye's powers instead of harnessing them, as Fitz wanted to do. She constructed a pair of gloves intended to absorb the shock of Skye's powers, therefore harming the latter less when she redirected them inside. She refused to specify when Fitz asked her what was in the case that she had taken to Coulson, because the gloves were the content.

S.H.I.E.L.D. vs S.H.I.E.L.D.

When S.H.I.E.L.D. agents loyal to Robert Gonzales invaded the Playground, Simmons and Leo Fitz sat side by side on the floor, watching the events around them, unable to do anything. Simmons knew Fitz was scared, so she rested her hand on top of his, and he returned the gesture. Anne Weaver asked Simmons for her medical expertise on Alphonso Mackenzie; she first looked at Fitz and waited for his approval before going to attend to Mack.

Simmons and Fitz discussed the Toolbox before being confronted by Robert Gonzales. Gonzales attempted to exchange pleasantries, but Simmons rebuffed him. Gonzales asked Leo Fitz to open the Toolbox, and Simmons retaliated with asking what would happen to him if he refused. When Gonzales assured them that Fitz would be free to go, he left to pack his bags, leaving Simmons.

Simmons and Morse talked while Fitz was packing, and Gonzales seemingly convinced Simmons to stay and help to open the Toolbox. Instead, Simmons replicated the box in order to smuggle it out of the Playground with Fitz. When Fitz learned what she was doing, he covered her actions and convinced Alphonso Mackenzie that Simmons was in earnest.

She later packed Fitz's favorite sandwich in his bag, and helped him get the backpack on. She watched with Mackenzie as Fitz left the base.

When Melinda May returned to the Playground, Simmons greeted her warmly. May asked her to assist her in recent revelations that Phil Coulson was accused of being deceptive. May told Simmons that Coulson asked her to work on upgrades to Deathlok without her knowledge; they decided to learn what Theta Protocol was.

Simmons learned that Coulson was spending a lot of money and was having clandestine meetings with Andrew Garner. Alphonso Mackenzie theorized that Coulson was making a super-powered team without anyone's knowledge. May ordered Simmons to open the Toolbox, but Simmons hesitated, not wanting to reveal that she had duplicated it and smuggled the real one out of the Playground with Leo Fitz. However, she told May that she would do her best.

When Simmons and Melinda May were in Coulson's office, Simmons revealed that she had worked on a fake Toolbox and that had she helped Leo Fitz in smuggling out the real one. May told her that she would handle it. May asked her if she could hack into Deathlok's hard-drive so they could have an opportunity to see, through him, where Coulson was. Simmons said it should not be too hard and dumped the fake Toolbox in the trash.

While Simmons worked on her mission, May came to ask her if there was any luck. Simmons argued with her that she was on Robert Gonzales's side, but May said that she the only reason why she helped him was because of Phil Coulson's lies. Simmons told her she didn't care of what was inside the Toolbox but the only thing she knew was that Coulson was just trying to protect Skye. Simmons, May and Alphonso Mackenzie were in Coulson's office when Skye called abruptly and said she was with Calvin Zabo and S.H.I.E.L.D. needed to take him from where she was. May signaled Simmons to locate Skye's location.

Later, Simmons succeeded hacking Deathlok's hard-drive. She and May were shocked after they saw that Coulson was with Grant Ward.

Attack on the Arctic HYDRA Research Facility

Quote1"Go on, get it over with you, monster."
"You really have changed, Simmons."
--Jemma Simmons and Grant Ward

Phil Coulson returned to the Playground with Leo Fitz, Grant Ward and Agent 33, and Fitz went to see Simmons. They talked together about Ward and Agent 33. Simmons did not understand how Coulson worked together with Ward, so she explained to Fitz how she could kill Ward with a Splinter Bomb. Fitz realized that she was serious about the idea, but Simmons said she was only arming herself against Ward. Knowing she had an opportunity to kill Ward and get revenge on him, Simmons asked Coulson if she could join the mission to infiltrate the Arctic HYDRA Research Facility and rescue Deathlok. Coulson agreed she could come to look after Peterson's injuries. Simmons and the team, which included Coulson, Melinda May, Fitz, and Ward, boarded the Bus. They heard a loud noise but it was revealed it had been Skye, who had been teleported to assist them with the mission and to rescue her friend, Lincoln Campbell.

On their way to the base, Simmons and Fitz talked with Skye about the place she had been. Coulson asked Ward to give the the information about the base sent by Sunil Bakshi, who Ward had brainwashed into serving him. Ward began, but then started to explain his actions during the time it had been revealed he was a HYDRA agent. Ward asked for the team's forgiveness, but nobody gave it. Near the base, HYDRA spotted the Bus' location and sent missiles to shoot it down, but the team escaped with a Quinjet and entered the base.

In the base, the team joined Bakshi and they were split into two groups: Coulson, May and Fitz went to take down the defense system so Robert Gonzales' men could destroy the base, while Simmons, Skye, Ward, and Bakshi went to find Peterson and Campbell. Bakshi led them to a room where Peterson was, but HYDRA agents shot in their direction. Skye used her powers to knock them out and they found Peterson in his cell. While Skye looked for Campbell, Simmons asked Ward to find something with which she could take Peterson, in order to make a distraction and kill Ward with a Splinter Bomb. When she threw the bomb, Bakshi sacrificed his own life for Ward's, jumping in front of him. Simmons watched as Ward pulled his gun, but instead of shooting her, he lectured her, and left the base. With Ward gone, Simmons went to help Skye rescue Campbell.

With the base was destroyed, Simmons and the team returned to the Playground. Simmons and Fitz talked with Peterson about repairing his leg. Peterson asked what happened to Bakshi, and Simmons said he did not make it, choosing not to reveal her assassination attempt.

War against the Inhumans

Simmons and Leo Fitz watched Skye while she was near the anesthetized Lincoln Campbell. Then, they informed Kara Palamas that the brainwashing of HYDRA was not affecting her reactions anymore. Palamas thanked them and asked Simmons about her undercover mission in HYDRA with Bobbi Morse, but before Simmons could explain more, the light of the building turned on and off, as Campbell awoke from his coma. Simmons checked if everything was alright, and put Campbell on the Index. She came to say goodbye to Skye before she left with Campbell to their home.

S.H.I.E.L.D. located the Inhumans' base and set them as a threat, and Simmons' role in S.H.I.E.L.D.'s delegation to their base was putting all of the Inhumans on Index. Before she went to there, she talked with Fitz about her attempt to kill Grant Ward and that the next horrible thing he will do, would be on her. Near the base, Simmons were in a Quinjet and informed Robert Gonzales that there are more people in there than they had expected. After they landed, Gonzales went to meet the Inhumans' leader and Skye's mother, Jiaying, and Simmons was with Skye and Campbell. But soon after, they heard gunfire from the room where Gonzales and Jiaying were. They ran to the noise, where they found Jiaying bleeding, claiming Gonzales had shot her. Simmons tried to help, but was rebuffed by the Inhumans and told to go back to S.H.I.E.L.D.

Quote1None of this would've happened if Gonzales hadn't attacked."
"You can't actually believe he would do something like this."
"Oh no, Gonzales would never attack a base unprovoked.
--Jemma Simmons and Anne Weaver

Simmons came to a Quinjet and told Melinda May and Phil Coulson what happened. Coulson asked her where was Robert Gonzales now, but Simmons did not know, so May went to search for him. After May was knocked out by Skye, the Quinjet that she and Simmons flew returned to the Playground. On their way to the base, Coulson asked Simmons if they had confirmation on who had fired the missile within Afterlife, but Simmons said they had not and they were still searching for the Quinjet which had fired it. May woke up and Simmons asked how she felt and then blamed Robert Gonzales that his action led to this conflict, but Anne Weaver defended Gonzales, saying that he would not do such a thing because he had wanted to give Jiaying a peace offering. Simmons did not understood Jiaying's move, asking why she invited S.H.I.E.L.D. only to attack them. Coulson did not know why but postulated that Calvin Zabo might.

Simmons, Coulson and Fitz and Simmons face off against the enhanced Calvin Zabo As they returned to the Playground with Calvin Zabo, Simmons said to Phil Coulson that she feared that Zabo was a Trojan horse and that he had taken a formula from the vials. She said to him she was going to analyze it in the lab. In Coulson's office, Coulson discovered that Jiaying staged the attack of S.H.I.E.L.D. on Afterlife so the Inhumans would think that they declared war on them, a ploy that deceived even Skye.

After a while, Coulson came to check Simmons' progress with analyzing the formula and Simmons gave him a partial list of the chemicals in the formula, saying Zabo made an unsuccessful attempt to get super strength. Coulson asked if he would be alright but Simmons said he had taken three vials so he should be dead. After Zabo had a heart attack, Simmons tried to revive him by giving him an adrenaline syringe. Zabo's heart went back to work but he became monstrous with remarkable strength. Simmons, Coulson and Leo Fitz tried to shoot him with I.C.E.R.s, but they were ineffective. Coulson ordered them to go so he could talk with him. A short time after, when Zabo walked around the base, Simmons and Fitz lured him into the hangar where Coulson could reason with him.

Phil Coulson convinced Calvin Zabo to assist them against Jiaying, and Zabo was put under armed guard while Simmons helped counteract the effects of his formula, resulting in the reverse of his physical changes. Leo Fitz then informed Coulson that the Inhumans had hijacked the Iliad while they were fighting Zabo.

Later, Melinda May and Lance Hunter found Bobbi Morse seriously injured. The two flew her to the Playground where Simmons prepared to analyze Morse in an alternate room. Coulson and Fitz came and asked about Morse's condition on her way there. Simmons responded that she barely survived, and Coulson asked if Zabo was stable enough to join them in the mission to retake the Iliad, but Simmons and Fitz were surprised to hear that. May and Hunter then entered the room with the wounded Morse. Simmons and her team of physicians started to operate on her.

Quote1It means a lot to me that we are friends again, and I... Maybe when you get back, we can finally just talk about it."
"It's... There is nothing to discuss, Jemma."
"Maybe there is.
--Jemma Simmons and Leo Fitz

Finished with the operation, and with Morse beginning to recover, Simmons put her hand on Hunter's shoulder to comfort him. She then came to say goodbye to Fitz, who was in a expedition of S.H.I.E.L.D. to retake the Iliad. She said to him to be careful but Fitz said that he will just get the job done. Simmons admitted that seeing Hunter with Morse made her realize that they had never spoken about what Fitz said to her in the bottom of the ocean. Fitz was surprised she wanted to speak about it now, but Simmons said hesitatingly that it meant a lot to her that they were friends again and they could talk about it. Fitz said that that there was nothing to discuss but Simmons replied that maybe there was. Coulson then entered and said to Fitz that they were on the move. After Fitz walked out, Simmons started crying.


S.H.I.E.L.D. and Skye were able to stop Jiaying's plans, leading to the deaths of Jiaying and the teleporter Gordon. A few days later, Phil Coulson appointed Alphonso Mackenzie to the head of the alien artifacts division. Simmons worked with Anne Weaver on the Monolith on the Iliad. She said that they could get better data if they will put in the glass, which protected the stone, a probing. Mackenzie then responded that they would not open the glass for thousands of years.

Leo Fitz awkwardly tried to ask Simmons out to dinner, and he stumbled, causing the lock on the case to loosen. Simmons then found out that the case was unlocked; while trying to re-lock the case, the stone morphed into its liquid form, shooting out and swallowing her. Simmons shouted, and then the stone went back to its original form.

Other Worldly Experience

Quote1There has to be a sunrise, eventually.Quote2
--Jemma Simmons

Finding herself on another planet, Simmons waited for hours for someone to find her and extract her. After twenty-two hours, she noted that the sun had not risen. Simmons kept herself grounded by talking to a picture of Leo Fitz on her cell phone; as she made markers from stones showing the direction she was going, Simmons talked to herself about the date they had planned. Realizing that a normal human can live without water for one hundred hours, Simmons sought water; she found it after one hundred and one.

At one hundred nine hours, Simmons swam through the water, finally finding time to relax. Suddenly, she was grabbed by a plant in the water and almost drowned; Simmons fought it and detached a tentacle. After eating it, she decided that she would grow weak if she did not continue to have food. Simmons returned to the pond and killed the creature cooking and eating it while continuing to look at the image of Fitz on her phone.

Meeting Will Daniels

After spending a month on the other world, Simmons investigates a ratting noise she hears not far away. She goes into a cluster of reeds, but the ground below her gives and she falls into a cave. As she passes out, she sees the hole being covered.

Simmons wakes up and finds herself in a makeshift cage. Her captor is a man who can speak English. After spending a few days in the cage, Simmons pretends she is sick to trick him into the cage, and then hits him over the head with her metal plate to escape. Simmons runs up out of the cave with the man close behind. She trips and cuts her legs, allowing the man to catch up to her. Rather than kill her, he looks to her wound, warning her that "it" can smell blood. Before he can explain what "it" is, he sees a sandstorm in the distance and they hurry back to the cave. He says "it" can affect on the whole planet, and that "it" and the whole planet is evil. He introduces himself as Will Daniels, and reveals he's been trapped on the planet since 2001. Fourteen years ago, Will was an astronaut sent through the portal with a team of three scientists as part of a NASA to the alien world. The entity on the planet slowly drove the three scientists insane, and now Will is the only survivor.

Simmons and Will work together to find a way off the planet. Will drew a map of the surrounding area, with certain areas marked as "no-fly zones," or places where the entity was most active. Simmons eventually wants to go into a no-fly zone to look for clues off the planet. Will tries to stop her, but she leaves anyway. Once she's in the no-fly zone, Simmons sees and old saber sticking out of the sand and goes over to it. She finds the remains of people who were brought here in the past, including an astrolabe. However, it isn't long before Simmons is trapped in a sandstorm. While she tries to get away, she sees the entity within. Simmons barely makes it back to the cave in time. But with what she's found, Simmons now has a plan to get them home.

New Experiments

Simmons comes to the conclusion that the portal appears in a fixed place that happens to look like its moving due to the planet's rotation, and that the portal activates based on the alignment of the planet's two moons. She uses an astrolabe and Will's computer (which she powers with her phone's battery) to find locations where the portal will appear, but only manages to get one before her battery runs out of power. Will agrees to Simmons' plan even though the portal will appear across a canyon in a no-fly zone. After four months on the other world, Simmons' is finally ready to return home. While on the way to the portal, Will says one of the NASA scientists said the world might have been a lush paradise before the entity arrived and consumed the planet. When they arrive at the canyon, they find it's much larger than it once was, and there's no way for them to get across in time. Will instead tries to launch a message Simmons wrote for Fitz through the portal using a grappling hook launcher, but the portal closes before it can get through. They go back to the cave defeated. Simmons breaks down and gives up on ever going home, but Will reminds her that she's given him hope, too, and they kiss.


--Jemma Simmons

Due to research into the stars conducted by Simmons, she and Will Daniels were able to determine when the sun was due to rise over the planet, the first sunrise in eighteen years. The pair shared a kiss as they stepped outside and waited to see for the sun for the first time in over a decade. Suddenly Simmons spotted a flare being fired in the distance and determined it must be Leo Fitz finally having found her.

Simmons ran across the desert with Daniels as they tried to find the source of the flare, but became separated as a sandstorm appeared. Simmons spotted what appeared to be a NASA astronaut and called out to Daniels that his team had found him, but Daniels warned her that it could only be the deadly being on the planet trying to trick her mind. Daniels ordered Simmons to run as he drew his gun and engaged the creature, firing his only bullet at It while Simmons followed the sound of Leo Fitz's voice.

She moved towards the light and encountered Fitz, who had thrown himself into the activated portal to find her. Crawling to him as the sandstorm worsened, she tried to reach him, only for him to be pulled away from her as the rope he was attached to began to take him back. Refusing to give up, Simmons dragged herself back towards Fitz, and they both grabbed hold of each other's hands and made it back through the portal before it exploded. Safe in the English castle, as Phil Coulson, Elliot Randolph, and Alphonso Mackenzie stared at them.

Coulson and Weaver ran tests on Simmons and determined that she was not infected or contagious and everything was normal. Suddenly, Simmons awakened from a nightmare and she held a piece of metal shaped like a shiv in a defensive position. She regained her senses and looked around; she found herself in a Medical Pod with Fitz in a chair, sleeping next to her bed. Simmons laid her head near his lap and returned to sleep, comforted by his presence.

Return to the Real World

Quote1She said she was being hunted."
"Wait. What? What does that mean? Hunted by what?"
"She didn't say. I don't know if she even knows.
--Leo Fitz and Alphonso Mackenzie

A team checked her physical condition and determined that her body adapted to living on the other planet. Simmons took a bath and washed the filth on her body. Leo Fitz accompanied her in every step she made since she was still getting used to Earth's lower gravity. They walked to the lab where Anne Weaver greeted her. Fitz theorized that if she saw the lab again, she would feel better. Suddenly, Weaver's phone rang, but Simmons heard it very loud. Simmons then told Fitz that she did not want to be there as there were too many distractions. Even a small divisive sounded very loud to her, so Fitz took her to her room.

In her room, Simmons was visited by Daisy Johnson; at first, Simmons called her "Skye" but she corrected herself. Johnson said to her that she would be with her any time when she would want to talk about what happened to her. Simmons said that she would rather listen about the Inhuman Outbreak. Suddenly, Johnson got a call which alarmed her; Simmons said she could answer it.

Dinner Date

Fitz took Simmons to a restaurant as he had promised to her months ago. When Simmons asked him where were all the other people, he said that he made sure there would not be any distractions. After they sat, Simmons said that she did not know how to thank him enough for what he had done for her. Fitz said that she did not have to say anything. Fitz then suggested to drink from the wine, but it reminded her of how she and Will Daniels drank the old wine. She started to cry, so Fitz sat next to her and comforted her.

Return to Danger

Quote1I have to go back.Quote2
--Jemma Simmons to Anne Weaver

Simmons knew that he had to find a way to open the portal again to save Will Daniels's life. She examined the Monolith remains in the lab. But when Bobbi Morse came and assured her that it will not open again, Simmons said that it had to and she must go back to the planet.

Back at the Playground, Fitz has found out about Simmons' research on the Monolith. Later, Fitz confronts her about her research, but Simmons tells him she needs his help to get her back to wherever the Monolith took her. Something happened to her over there, and she's ready to tell Fitz about her ordeal.

Telling Fitz About Will

Simmons told Leo Fitz about her experience on the other world and the relationship that she had with Will Daniels. For a moment, Fitz would not talk to her and she began to cry. Collecting herself, Simmons chased after Fitz, begging him to understand; Fitz said that he did understand and showed her his computer screen, revealing the research he had done over the past six months on her location. Fitz declared that they will save Daniels; Simmons smiled.

Awaiting Results

Simmons sat across from Andrew Garner reminding him of his words as she played psychologist; Garner confessed to her that he disliked how others were treating him since he was injured in an assassination attempt. Simmons told him that others underestimate how strong smart people truly are.

She then received a phone call from Daisy Johnson who had a blood sample from Luther Banks that she wanted tested to determine if he could be an Inhuman. Simmons took the assignment and ran the test.

Simmons entered the workplace of Leo Fitz and told Johnson that Banks was not an Inhuman; meanwhile, Fitz was finishing his technical support for Melinda May. Simmons asked Fitz how the research he was doing into the Monolith was progressing. He could only tell her that the computer simulations had not yet found a way to open a viable portal. Simmons then told Fitz that if he knew Will Daniels, then he would understand why she desperately hopes to rescue him; Fitz assured her that he will get to know Daniels. Unknown to Simmons, Fitz was researching Daniels' background.

Watching the Sunrise

Simmons gave her phone to Leo Fitz and hoped that he could repair it; she told him that she made logs on it during her time on Monolith Planet and that she thought he could use that information to find a way to open a portal. Fitz took the phone and said he would do the research.

Later, Simmons searched the Playground for an eastern window so she could watch the sun rise. Fitz found her and told her that he was taking a break. He then questioned her about her thought processes and state of mind as she recorded her logs. Simmons, knowing that Fitz was referring to her affirmations of love to him and her said desire to start a family with him, told Fitz that she had perfect clarity when she made her logs. The two then watched as the morning began.

Discovering an Unlikely Connection

Quote1I can't fathom any way out of this without hurting someone I care about.Quote2
--Jemma Simmons

Simmons watched as Leo Fitz berated an agent who had dropped some books and scrolls in the hallway. Simmons calmed him down, before getting angry with him for wanting to help her find Will Daniels, not understanding why he was seemingly not angry. Simmons returned to the lab; however, Fitz confronted her there, asking her why she was angry with him. Simmons replied that she was mad at herself for asking Fitz to help, and she was mad at him for being so willing. Simmons told Fitz she had expected him to get angry, and he had not. Simmons listened as Fitz replied that he was angry, but not at her; at the universe that he believed kept them apart. Simmons deflected the idea; however, Fitz proceeded to list all their obstacles, before asking Simmons if she loved Daniels. Taken aback, Simmons struggled to find an answer, until finally saying yes. Fitz sadly agreed and started listing Daniels' achievements and traits, until Simmons cut him off and interjected that Fitz had rescued her from Maveth. Fitz stared at her for a second, and then kissed her, knocking a book off the table as he did so. Simmons kissed him back, until Fitz broke away and whispered again that they were cursed. As he walked away, Simmons turned and saw the book that had been knocked down lying open with a picture of a symbol similar to HYDRA's; she called Fitz back and showed him the picture.

Later, Simmons and Fitz showed the rest of the agents their findings, first laying out the Distant Star Return insignia, then other symbols relating to the Monolith they had found in their research, progressing until they reached a symbol that bore extreme similarity to the current HYDRA symbol. Their research revealed that HYDRA had been involved with NASA and the Advanced Threat Containment Unit, and that they were behind sending people through the Monolith.


When Rosalind Price was killed by Grant Ward, Phil Coulson sent Simmons, Fitz, Luther Banks, and a team of agents to an abandoned Project Distant Star Pathfinder facility in search of clues to the Monolith. While there, Simmons expressed her belief that it was unlikely they would find anything, but Fitz replied that they still could find something to help them bring back Will Daniels. Simmons told him that they could not bring him back, since opening the portal was HYDRA's goal and could potentially allow them to bring back their leader. Though Fitz tried to protest, Simmons told him that it would be selfish to potentially allow HYDRA to achieve their goal, just to bring Daniels back. Before Fitz could answer, the two heard shots. Quickly turning, Simmons saw Banks shoot the other agents, then turn the gun on her and Fitz. Simmons watched as Fitz asked Banks not to shoot them; however, Banks managed to say it was not him before the gun floated out of his hand, turned, and shot Banks in the head. Simmons and Fitz watched as Giyera entered the room and ordered them to follow him.

At the HYDRA Castle

Quote1In case you didn't realize, Melinda shot me!"
"Oh, well I think you deserved it after the way you've misbehaved!
--Andrew Garner and Jemma Simmons

Now captives of HYDRA, Simmons and Leo Fitz were taken to the same castle in England where S.H.I.E.L.D. rescued Simmons from Maveth. There, they discovered that Gideon Malick sought to use fragments of the Monolith to summon forth the hostile creature from Maveth; the creature was in fact an Inhuman of unspeakable power that HYDRA and its ancestors had long worshiped. Disgusted and horrified by the prospect, Simmons refused and attempted to attack Malick, but was restrained and tortured by Giyera and Grant Ward. Hearing her screams, Fitz gave in first and agreed to help them open the portal.

While Simmons remained behind in captivity, she watched as Fitz was forced to accompany a squadron of HYDRA operatives led by Ward through the portal, with Phil Coulson airdropping through the castle roof after them seconds later to stop them. While they waited for the team to return, the HYDRA Castle suddenly fell under attack by S.H.I.E.L.D. Lincoln Campbell used his electrical powers to cut the power to the facility, and in the confusion, Simmons escaped her confinements using the dagger she had taken from Maveth. Evading HYDRA forces, she came across captive Inhumans as well as Andrew Garner secured in his containment module. With HYDRA forces closing in on her, Simmons got into a brief argument with Garner, who offered to protect her from HYDRA if he let her out. Simmons was understandably skeptical, given Garner's recent actions as Lash. However, seeing no other alternative, she complied and remained hidden as Garner transformed into Lash and butchered all HYDRA operatives in his path.

As Lash disappeared from the scene, Simmons regrouped with the rest of her team and aided in securing the facility. As S.H.I.E.L.D. took point in guarding the portal, Simmons told her team of the nature of HYDRA's plans and of the hostile Inhuman. After a length deliberation, the team decided to bomb the castle once Coulson and Fitz returned, thus destroying the portal and preventing the Inhuman from making it through. Simmons accompanied the away team while Daisy Johnson and Alphonso Mackenzie stayed behind to oversee the return of their people; eventually, time ran out and S.H.I.E.L.D. destroyed the castle. Fortunately, Coulson and Fitz returned at the last second and regrouped with the others on the Zephyr One. Simmons immediately went to see if they had successfully brought back Will Daniels, but was heartbroken to discover he was not with them. In tears, she embraced Fitz, who comforted her.

Lab Work

Missing Fitz

Quote1I miss you."
"I'm here."
"Together. We're professional and matter of fact, and there's this chasm in the middle of the room of all these things.
--Jemma Simmons and Leo Fitz

As Daisy Johnson sent Simmons footage of an Inhuman with super-speed, she redefined the Containment Module. She told Lincoln Campbell that it was necessary, since the Inhumans's abilities were random. However, Campbell told her that he had been taught that the Inhumans abilities were given to create an equilibrium within the species. Then, Phil Coulson wanted to use the Theta Brain-Wave Frequency Machine on Werner von Strucker to find out where Gideon Malick was. Simmons warned him that because von Strucker was in a coma, it could be dangerous for him. Eventually Coulson got his information. Later, Simmons found Leo Fitz in the lab, and told him that she missed their partnership because of the recent events. Fitz said that maybe there had been a way to save Will Daniels, but Simmons said that he was extraordinary, since he had killed Hive. Together they restored the moment they had met, reintroducing themselves in an effort to start over.

Potential Cure

Quote1A vaccine against Terrigenesis."
"Potentially. It can't reverse the effects once someone's transformed. This could virtually put an end to..."
"To us?
--Lincoln Campbell, Jemma Simmons and Quake

Absorbing Man was brought to the Playground and was inside a Containment Module. Simmons and Leo Fitz asked him how he could had touched the Diviner without being killed, but he did not know. They decided to test his blood samples with Terrigenesis. She then interrupted Daisy Johnson and Lincoln Campbell and asked Campbell's help with their test. The two showed Campbell that Johnson's pre-Terrigenesis blood reacted to the Terrigen, but as they mixed it with Creel's blood, it broke down the Terrigenesis. They theorized that it could be a vaccine to Inhumans that were not yet transformed. Johnson entered the lab, shocked at the idea. Simmons and Fitz left the room to let her and Campbell talk.

Shooting Practice

Quote1You know I don't like guns, but I'd rather be prepared.Quote2
--Jemma Simmons to Melinda May

Simmons was working on her shootings in the range, when Melinda May came and gave her an advice. May asked her why she was doing it, and Simmons said that since she could not defend herself so she had let Lash kill innocent people, she needed to know how to use a gun. May told her that it was not her fault and left. After she was finished, Simmons was called by May. May told her she assign some of S.H.I.E.L.D. services to find Lash. Simmons told her she used them wrong, since Lash was driven by basic instincts. Simmons asked her what she was planing to do with him, so she answered that she would kill him. Simmons told her about the vaccine for pre-Terrigenesis Inhumans she was working at that could help Lash, but May refused.

Hive's Return

An Old Enemy Is Back

Quote1My God. What is she walking into?Quote2
--Jemma Simmons

Daisy Johnson saw a vision of the future from the Inhuman Charles Hinton. After she returned to the Playground, Johnson told the team she would fight HYDRA to rescue Hinton from them and Simmons and Leo Fitz would hold hands as the snow falls. Johnson said they could change the future from happening, but Fitz explained to the team the future could not be changed. Phil Coulson suggested they would send Melinda May to the mission.

Johnson gave details of the location of the battle to Simmons and Fitz, and they used S.H.I.E.L.D. services to find it. May entered the room and demeaned they would not use all of them. Simmons explained that she and May used some of the services to find Lash. Simmons asked May if she thought they could change the future, to which May replied that every move they made change the future. Simmons joined Fitz, Lincoln Campbell and others as they began training to ensure May would undergo her mission as fast as possible in order to change the vision's outcome. Johnson made sure the room was laid out as accurately as possible to the vision she had had while Fitz and the other agents acted as the guards who needed to be taken out. Eventually May managed to beat the time limit.

They eventually found the location of the battle, which was owned by Transia Corporation. Coulson gave his last orders to May when suddenly the alarms in the base went off, telling them that there was an intruder. Andrew Garner was brought into the base and explained that Lash was taking over and he wanted to say goodbye to May. May was ordered to stay behind so she could say goodbye to her ex-husband while Johnson went into the mission. In Coulson's office they watched as they managed to hack into the Transia Corporation's CCTV feed. As they spotted Giyera on the feed, suddenly the video seemed to show Grant Ward in the building. Fitz claimed it was likely to be Hive. Simmons terrified said what Johnson went to.

They went to the building to save Johnson and find Ward. Fitz and Simmons stayed outside. Simmons said tho him that maybe Johnson had seen her own death. Suddenly, Fluorescent sparkles fell from the building's rooftop, so Fitz realized Johnson had not seen snow. Simmons said they supposed to hold hands now, so the two did it.

Learning Hive

Quote1The organisms we found on the bones, I don't think he's controlling them. I think he is them.Quote2
--Jemma Simmons to Phil Coulson

Simmons, Leo Fitz, Daisy Johnson and Alphonso Mackenzie examined skeletons sentenced from the skin by Hive. Simmons explained that Grant Ward's body was possessed by the Inhuman from Maveth. The team was called to Phil Coulson's office for a meeting where he explained that in order to find Hive, they would go to GT Agrochemical facility which had been raided by HYDRA. On Zephyr One, Simmons and Fitz explained to Coulson that Hive had created small organisms which had consumed the victims' flesh. Simmons theorized that the organisms also been used to reanimate dead flesh. Coulson looked at her shocked so Simmons explained she could not believe Hive was on Earth.

As the team prepared to enter to facility and to face Giyera there, Simmons explained them his powers. Melinda May asked her about a room in the facility where she could defeat him. After they kidnapped Giyera, Simmons was asked by Giyera why Hive destroyed the researches in the facility, so Simmons sad either he wanted to use them, or he was afraid of them. Coulson then asked what was Hive, so Simmons said she was thinking the little organisms were Hive itself. Coulson realized Hive was a parasite which possessed the memories of its host. Simmons herself was terrified of the idea. Later, the alarm of the plane was set as Giyera escaped the Containment Module. Giyera came to the the control room and managed to control the plane, causing Simmons to faint.


Jemma Simmons is known as the attractive nerd and also a science buff on her profile for S.H.I.E.L.D. She has a normally calm and rational attitude, often relying on what is or isn't scientific fact. She is very forgiving, as seen when she so quickly forgave Skye after she betrayed them with the Rising Tide. However, she did not forgive Grant Ward for his betrayal of the team.

She has a deep affection towards Leo Fitz, refusing to let him sacrifice his life for her. Recently, she has found being around Fitz hard because of the memories she has of the man he was before his brain was damaged.

Simmons was a terrible liar, proved many times over, prominently the instance in the Hub when she shot Agent Jasper Sitwell with the Night-Night Gun out of panic when he did not believe her lies. However, Simmons has improved on this flaw during her undercover assignment in HYDRA's science division. Simmons also has a bright outlook on life, most often trying to see the best in any situation, and then trying to make them better.

The death of Antoine Triplett drastically changed Simmons's views of superpowers and alien artifacts. She thought that the world was a better place without anyone with powers, to the point in almost saying that killing Raina, since she had powers, was the best option for the team. She viewed Skye as being equal to Hulk in terms of destructive capability and lack of control; Simmons hoped to find a way to remove her powers permanently, or at least suppress them through sedatives. Her change of opinions was so surprising that Fitz himself said that her change in personality is almost scary. This change also brought out a darker side of Simmons' personality as she intended to kill Grant Ward with a Splinter Bomb after all of his betrayals and while she failed due to Sunil Bakshi's interference, she calmly told them that he didn't make it, not revealing his death was caused by her murder attempt.

Powers and Abilities


None known.


  • Genius Level Intellect: Simmons possessed two PhDs' for biochemistry by the time she was 17, and continued her studies at the S.H.I.E.L.D. Academy of Science and Technology. She graduated as one of the youngest cadets in the history of the Academy due to her intellect. Simmons possesses a sharp and bright mind, focused on analysis, that has allowed her to research and develop many breakthrough equipment for S.H.I.E.L.D.
  • Master Scientist: Simmons' expertise in the field of biochemistry has allowed her to work in the research and development of many breakthrough discoveries, such as the use of dentrotoxin as a tranquilizer ammunition, the cure for a virus of extraterrestrial origin, a crystalline nucleation process capable of turning moisture into ice or an odorless scent used for tracking. She is highly gifted and knowledgeable in many fields of science practiced such as biology, biochemistry, anatomy and physics.
  • Expert Physician: Simmons was often charged with evaluating and treating any injuries sustained by her teammates and colleagues, being skilled enough to apply advanced first aid to Skye when she was shot by Ian Quinn, and to perform an autopsy on Eric Koenig's corpse. She has extensive knowledge of human, animal and alien physiology, anatomy and DNA when needed even beating out scientists, physicians and terroristic agencies ahead of time.
  • Spy: Originally, Coulson did not trust Simmons as a spy, considering her lying skills were subpar; he had Simmons give support to Melinda May when she went undercover into Cybertek Corporate Headquarters. As Simmons learned to lie better, Coulson sent her to HYDRA Laboratories to gain information on the organization's schemes, operations and research managing to fool her direct co-workers and even Sunil Bakshi. Over time, she learnt to use her apparent naivety as a tool.
  • Marksman: Simmons was able to handle a gun with ease when she mistook Phil Coulson for an intruder in her apartment while on her undercover assignment within HYDRA. She hit Raina multiple times when Raina attacked scientists under Simmons' charge.
