S.H.I.E.L.D. (Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement, and Logistics Division) is an extra-government intelligence and security organization dedicated to protecting the nations and peoples of Earth from all threats, terrestrial or extraterrestrial. S.H.I.E.L.D. was organized a little over a decade ago by Nicholas Joseph Fury to meet the threat of the highly technological subversive organization called Hydra.
S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Supreme Headquarters is the huge mobile Helicarrier, but there are also regional offices in all the major cities of the free world. Although most of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s operations are covert, the organization’s existence is known to general public. S.H.I.E.L.D. even maintains public offices in several cities.
