An Inhuman version of J.T. James appears in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., played by Axle Whitehead. He was a former mercenary and demolitions expert who was kicked out of Afterlife by Jiaying for breaking into her archives. He first appeared in the episode "Paradise Lost" where Daisy Johnson and Lincoln Campbell ask him about the Kree device in his possession. In the episode "The Singularity," James goes through Terrigenesis at the hands of Hive and receives his power that enables him to charge things up for a fiery explosion. After being swayed to Hive's side, James assisted him, Daisy Johnson, and Alisha Whitley into abducting Holden Radcliffe in order to make their own Inhumans. During the final battle against Hive, Hellfire was defeated by Melinda May. In the episode "Let Me Stand Next to Your Fire," Hellfire was shown working at a fireworks store when Daisy Johnson and Jemma Simmons arrive to warn him about the Watchdogs. When meeting with Hellfire at a storage unit next to the fireworks store, the Watchdogs arrive where Hellfire mentioned to Daisy and Jemma that he struck a deal with the Watchdogs where he will help him dispose of the Inhumans in exchange that they kill him last. As Daisy and Jemma work to get away from the Watchdogs, Hellfire corners them until Robbie Reyes shows up. Upon Phil Coulson and Al MacKenzie arriving to save Daisy and Jemma, Robbie becomes Ghost Rider and fights Hellfire. Upon the fireworks store exploding, Robbie drags Hellfire's body out of the explosion as he asked Coulson if he said to leave him alive. Jemma puts her hand against Hellfire's neck and nods up and down to Coulson.
