Agent Phil Coulson is a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent considered the "everyman" in a universe full of superheroes. Every day he's somewhere doing something for S.H.I.E.L.D.

He knows how to stand his ground but doesn't take life too seriously. He has Level 8 clearance and is the Senior Agent for a special S.H.I.E.L.D. team who travel around the world on various top secret missions. He got revived for days by an alien serum after a supposedly fatal attack from Loki on the Helicarrier before the Battle of New York seen in the film The Avengers.

In Clark Gregg's own words "He's the guy who's tasked - a very disciplined guy in my opinion who possesses secrets that would turn your hair white - but at the same time he's tasked with handling these kind of diva superheroes, you know? 'Oh, really, Asgard? Dude, just get in the car.'"
