Brilliant Leo Fitz applies his skills in gadgetry and thirst for adventure to his job as an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., America’s top spy organization.

Bright Boy

Much of Leopold Fitz’s personal background remains confidential and undisclosed, but some evidence exists to suggest a Scottish heritage and a knack for science and invention at an early age. As an adult, he became an agent of the United States’ top intelligence organization, S.H.I.E.L.D., and quickly made an impression on his superiors with his gadget-building, as well as his ability to apply his work in the field with excellent results.

For some reason, Fitz has also developed a fixation on acquiring a monkey as an assistant, a request that usually annoys his direct boss, Agent Phil Coulson.

Fitz Skillz

Fitz has undergone and qualified in all the standard S.H.I.E.L.D. training for field operations, personal combat, and weapon handling. His above-average IQ and keen interest in science and engineering has placed him on the path of becoming one of the organization’s brightest and cleverest gadgeteers and earned him a Level 5 security clearance as an agent.

Despite his exceptional intelligence, Fitz can also seem naïve at times and perhaps over-exuberant in his dealings with others, especially where his inventions are concerned.

Once fully trained and ready for field work, Fitz developed a working relationship with several fellow S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, including Phil Coulson, Melinda May, Daisy Johnson. He’s closer with Jemma Simmons, his lab partner. Like many others in the organization, he appears to hold little love for Maria Hill, the intermittent director of S.H.I.E.L.D.

In addition, Fitz’s missions have also brought him into contact with several of the world’s Super Heroes and other larger-than-life personalities, such as the Scarlet Witch, Elektra, and Howard the Duck.

If the Shoe Fitz…

Not all of Leo Fitz’s missions for S.H.I.E.L.D. have been declassified, most interestingly his earliest ones, but he first came to some prominence working as part of Phil Coulson’s investigation of a sword, belonging to the Asgardian Heimdall, that appeared on Earth in the hands of a terrestrial terrorist. With the help of the android Vision, the young inventor proved instrumental in helping Heimdall break free of the influence of a strange, other-worldly mineral. Following the mission, Fitz began his own investigation into the alien stone.

Fitz, fellow S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Melinda May, and the Scarlet Witch followed the trail of an assassin targeting sorcerers to Antarctica and confronted the culprit behind the series of shootings. During this time, Dormammu, a powerful being from another dimension, spread a sickness on Earth called the Mindless Plague which swept Fitz up into its grasp. Under the influence of Dormammu’s plague, Fitz shot the Scarlet Witch, though she survived.

Fitz was cured by his teammates, who were able to stop Dormammu, and he returned to duty soon after.

Perhaps one of Leo Fitz’s most challenging assignments took the form of an undercover mission to investigate a U.S. Department of Defense general and secure a highly secretive computer drive. During this time, Fitz’s allegiance was questioned by then-S.H.I.E.L.D. Director Maria Hill due to his superior Phil Coulson’s dismissal. When the assassin Elektra was hired by Hill to delve into the mystery, she deduced Fitz’s duplicity and he was forced to retreat with the help of Coulson and Daisy Johnson. His active status was not restored until he and Johnson arrested the wayward general and secured the man’s confession of wrongdoing.

It is rumored that Fitz has created and put into operation an artificial intelligence codenamed with the acronym H.E.N.R.Y.
