-- Franklin Hall src

Dr. Franklin Hall is a Canadian scientist working for S.H.I.E.L.D. Dr. Hall is a protected S.H.I.E.L.D. asset who was the teacher of Leo Fitz and Jemma Simmons. Dr. Hall ends up abducted from a fully-protected convoy by a military unit who used some gravity weapon and taken to a compound in Malta owned by his former research partner Ian Quinn the head of Quinn Worldwide, who wants Hall to complete the gravity fields in Quinn's device powered by Gravitonium.

When Agent Coulson finds Hall, he is in the process of sending the gravity-control device and Quinn's house into the ocean, endangering the guests in Quinn's compound. Hall reveals to Coulson that he orchestrated his own kidnapping and states that the gravity element is too powerful for S.H.I.E.L.D. and Ian Quinn while proclaiming that he is "protecting mankind" and "making things right." After Coulson shoots the glass blocking the device, Hall falls towards the device where he is apparently consumed. The Gravitonium and the device it powers ends up locked up in S.H.I.E.L.D. custody where it is revealed that Hall is still alive inside the cluster of Gravitonium.[1]

Much later during the fall of S.H.I.E.L.D., the Clairvoyant and his team invaded the Fridge where the Gravitonium had been stored. They discovered it underneath the Fridge in a hidden room. He offers it back to Ian Quinn in exchange for him helping Hydra implant Centipede soldiers into U.S. Armed Forces ranks. But when the Clairvoyant botched Quinn's pitch to government official by killing one of them, Quinn took the gravitonium and fled.
