His muscular system, featuring a combination of pneumatics, hydraulics, and internally generated, electrical power, grants him vastly amplified strength.

Other Info
Johnathan Garrett's life before
S.H.I.E.L.D. was a life of a criminal activity. He was in and out of jail and prison. He had a long criminal record including larceny, battery, assaults, drunkenness, and more. Despite his despicable past, John Garrett was able to join S.H.I.E.L.D. However, even as a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, Garrett was known for his arrogance, offensiveness, disregard for standard procedures, and his lack of personal hygiene. (Click on the highlighted name above to learn more about S.H.I.E.L.D.)

Later on, Agent Garrett was "upgraded" and rebuilt as a cyborg, with a six-inch removable portion on the top of his skull. This was done so there could be a recorder placed in there. In addition, he was given a cybernetic right hand.
Sometime later, Agent Garrett and his partner Agent Perry were sent to San Concepcion as part of Operation: Scrambled Eggs, to investigate the assassination of President Carlos Huevos. Upon further investigation, they found out that the hired assassin was Elektra. While researching Elektra's past, Garrett became a victim of a psychic link with her. Due to this link, Elektra began influencing his perceptions and manipulating his actions. She directed Garrett to purge all of the evidence he had gathered. Eventually, when Garrett confronted Elektra, she blew up the harbor building in which they were in. (To learn about the characters above, just click on their highlighted names. Note: Beware of the very form-fitting outfits on Elektra's bio page.)

After the explosion, Agent Garrett's body was recovered by ExTechOp, who began to replace his missing body parts (80% of his body, including his limbs and most of his vital organs) with cybernetic ones. Working tirelessly, S.H.I.E.L.D. engineers successfully replaced Garrett's arms, legs, spine, nervous system, heart, liver, and lungs. However, soon after they removed the recorder implant from Garrett's head, Elektra slipped in and stole it. Agent Garrett, now completely rebuilt and active, filed his report on Elektra; however, he pretended not to know her identity and claimed that she was a Russian agent. But, his story wasn't believed by Nick Fury or his superior, Dr. Breaker. (Note: Beware of the low-cut out fit of one in the background of Nick Fury's bio page.)
Mostly back in his own mind at this point, Garrett recalled that Elektra would be going after Ambassador Reich (who was unknowingly possessed by the demonic "Beast" that controlled the group known as the Hand). Elektra knew that Garrett intended to stop her, and she sent him on a wild goose chase while she successfully accomplished her mission. However, Reich had already transferred the Beast into Ken Wind--a strong candidate for president of the United States. (To learn about the Hand, click on the highlighted name above.)
Later on, Agent Garrett was sent to meet with Ken Wind and offer him protection, but due to his interactions with Elektra, he was able to detect the stench of The Beast on Wind. Elektra was also there, but the Hand had attempted to lead Elektra to a location where they could kill her, but Garrett rushed to her rescue, fighting off his own allies and successfully saved Elektra. He also opposed the Beast itself and nearly died after having his hand blown off, but Elektra saved him in return.

After this, Garrett was nearby when Elektra communed with The Beast of the Hand, and he learned of the demon's plot to annihilate all life on Earth by having the U.S. president launch a nuclear missile attack. Realizing that Ken Wind needed to be killed so The Beast could die too, both Garrett and Elektra prepared for an assault on Ken Wind.

At the victory rally for Ken Wind's election, Garrett posed as an ice cream vendor, while Elektra hid out in the shadows, waiting for a chance to assassinate Wind. When S.H.I.E.L.D. agents showed up to apprehend Garrett, he ended up pulling a rocket launcher out from his ice cream stand and fired at Wind. But, he was shot in the shoulder which made him miss. In the following chaos, Garrett and Elektra were assaulted by the rebuilt, and Hand-controlled, Agent Perry and the evil Chuck the Dwarf. At one point, Garrett rushed at Wind; however, Perry stopped him and proceeded to batter him mercilessly, dismantling and dismembering him. However, Elektra managed to destroy Perry and drive The Beast from Wind.

Sometime later, agents of the Snakeroot assaulted the S.H.I.E.L.D. substation and their leader Tekagi took Agent Garrett. Now, in the stronghold of the Snakeroot, Tekagi revealed that since Garrett and Elektra had merged on the plane of the mind, a fragment of her persona still existed within Garrett's mind. Therefore, the Snakeroot went forward with their plan and transferred the dark essence of Elektra from Garrett's mind into a female corpse, which was reanimated as "Erynys." At the same time, other technicians continued the process of rebuilding Garrett. A now completed Garrett and Erynys were then used to attack Daredevil and the Chaste member Stone. However, Garrett confused Erynys for Elektra. So, even when the real Elektra showed up, Garrett still followed Erynys command to flee. (To learn about the characters above, just click on their highlighted names.)

Eventually, over time, Garrett was re-captured and placed in a S.H.I.E.L.D. detention cell.

Later on, as the war against HYDRA and Leviathan grew, Nick Fury reactivated Agent Garrett as a member of the Zodiac (Great Wheel). Under Fury's command, Garrett is one of the few relics of S.H.I.E.L.D. to understand the full scope of this conflict. He also sent the cyber-warrior Siege to watch over Garrett to make sure he towed the line. (To learn about HYDRA and/or Siege, click on their names above.)

More recently, Agent Garrett was identified as a current member of the Howling Commandos Private Military Company (PMC).

There is nothing there, but here is the link to Agent Garrett's bio on,,_John.

Agent Garrett appears in the TV show, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Like the comics, he does have some cypernetics, until at one point he transforms himself into a cyborg to try to save his life. (Also, Agent Garrett as a S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent (top) and as a cyborg (bottom) is shown in the second picture posted above.)
