Rising Tide is an anonymous network of hacktivists dedicated to exposing the existence of superhumans and powered individuals, and generally establishing freedom of information across a wide range of areas. One of the Tide's premier operatives was Skye.

HistoryEdit

On their website, Rising Tide has leaked multiple pieces of footage of extraordinary individuals, including Iron Man and the Hulk. When Mike Peterson showed his abilities in public, Skye approached him and warned Peterson of the imminent involvement of S.H.I.E.L.D. She recommended that he shed his secretive identity and become a superhero, so that S.H.I.E.L.D would be unable to cover up his actions.

Skye was later found by S.H.I.E.L.D and helped them take Peterson out with a prototype Night-Night Gun before the Extremis serum inside him overheated and caused him to explode.

It was Skye's credentials as a star of the group that got her an evite and job offer from Ian Quinn in "The Asset", bait which was vital to the successful acquisition of the Gravity Field Generator.

In "Girl in the Flower Dress", Miles Lydon is sought after by Coulson and his team over information that he leaked about Chan Ho Yin, who had been captured by Raina as a result. After being tipped off by Skye, Miles admits that he sold the information for money, going against Rising Tide's ideals of leaking information in the name of transparency. He later helps S.H.I.E.L.D locate Raina and Yin, who had taken up the name "Scorch".

In the second half of Season One, the Rising Tide is no longer a major player, it seems, and unmentioned in later seasons.
