If you are a proud Marvel fan then you will love our “Be A Hero” Tee inspired by Mike Peterson’s powerful quote on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.!
For so many fans, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. feels like home because we hold the show’s plots, characters, quotes, and storylines so close to our hearts. A huge reason for that is the very first episode that set the foundation for the incredible series. In the pilot episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., we meet the brave Mike Peterson, who we instantly find out to be a superhero as he risks his life to save a woman from a burning building. All Mike wants to do is take care of his son, Ace, and use his powers to protect people. But Mike is soon poisoned by the Centipede Serum that gives him his powers and finds himself in a position that puts himself and the people around him in danger.
As Phil Coulson gently confronts Mike and tries to calm the situation, Mike gives what is still one of the most powerful speeches on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. With his voice cracking and tears in his eyes, he tells Coulson of the pain of losing everyone and everything, and the hopelessness of not having a place in the world, despite how hard he tries to do good and be a strong person. Coulson steps forward and tells Mike that the truly good guys, the real deal, “They’re not heroes because of what they have that we don’t. It’s what they do with it.” Coulson tells him, “You’re right, Mike. It matters who you are.” Mike, knowing who he really is and the good he’s capable of doing, says to Coulson, “I could, you know? Be a hero.”
And that’s exactly what Mike did. He continued to become a superhero, persevered through all the tragedies he endured, and ended up saving Coulson, his team, and the world countless times. Mike’s powerful quote that inspired this t-shirt design perfectly represents what Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is about; true heroes who use the power they have to protect others and change the world for the better.
Our “Be A Hero” Tee is a tribute to Mike Peterson and all of the true heroes like him! Every time you style this super cute and soft t-shirt, you will be reminded that it’s who you are on the inside that matters, and that we all have the power to be superheroes!
