At the height of the Second World War, the
Allied powers began encountering terrifying

new technology and weapons under the command
of an autonomous division of the Schutzstaffel

known as HYDRA.
In response, the Allies turned to the Strategic
Scientific Reserve to counter HYDRA's ambitions

and develop secret weapons of their own.
The end of the war brought with it new insights
as to the nature of the universe and humanity's

place within it.
To protect mankind from whatever threats yet
undiscovered, the Strategic Scientific Reserve

was restructured into the Strategic Homeland
Intervention Enforcement and Logistics Divisions,

better known as S.H.I.E.L.D.
At its inception, S.H.I.E.L.D. was an American
led organization based solely in the United States.

By the modern age, it had become critical
enough to the defense of the Earth to warrant

international oversight.
The World Security Council, formed from politicians
and specialists from the Earth's most powerful

nations, functioned as S.H.I.E.L.D.'s highest

Its status as a wholly independent and autonomous
committee however, meant that its goals often

clashed with those of the organization it
was intended to oversee.

The Word Security Council was often misled
or even outright ignored by S.H.I.E.L.D.'s

internal Director who, in practice, was the
person most responsible for guiding the entire

Directors could fundamentally alter S.H.I.E.L.D.'s
priorities as the situation dictated and had

access to the most technologically advanced
equipment on the planet.

The largest and most powerful assets available
to S.H.I.E.L.D. were its Helicarriers, enormous

aircraft carriers capable of sustained independently
powered flight.

Various classes of Helicarrier were introduced
over S.H.I.E.L.D.'s history, each serving

as mobile bases which could support and direct
a variety of operations and mission types.

Modern variants have been equipped with retro-reflective
panels across their hulls, making them invisible

to the human eye when necessary.
Conventional F-35 “Lightning 2” multirole
fighters and other military aircraft were

assigned to Helicarriers, supplementing more
advanced designs exclusive to S.H.I.E.L.D.

The Quinjet was first among these, combining
the functionality of a conventional helicopter

with the long-range high-speed cruise performance
of a jet aircraft.

Quinjets were capable of unprecedented maneuverability
and typically used to transport and then extract

S.H.I.E.L.D. agents and teams.
Larger aircraft based elsewhere included modified
C-17 Globemasters and the Zephyr One, which

served as mobile headquarters for smaller
S.H.I.E.L.D. units.

On the ground, teams were further outfitted
with a wide variety of S.H.I.E.L.D.

designed or enhanced vehicles, weapons, or
more specialized equipment.

So far reaching was S.H.I.E.L.D.'s mission,
and so critical that it succeed, that the

organization operated everything from highly
advanced drones, requisitioned Naval ships,

and even orbital satellites with the accompanying
support facilities.

S.H.I.E.L.D. bases operated on every continent,
providing safehouses, research labs, containment

cells, and any other facilities that might
be required.

Many of these were formerly operated by the
Strategic Scientific Reserve or other elements

of the Armed Forces, while a select few were
purpose built with S.H.I.E.L.D. in mind.

Triskelion was one such facility, built on
the Potomac River between Washington, D.C.

and Virginia.
Triskelion would serve as S.H.I.E.L.D.'s
primary headquarters for most of its modern

history, and home to some of its most secretive

In 2012, S.H.I.E.L.D. was finally revealed
to the public in the wake of the Battle of

New York, in which an invasion by the alien
Chitauri was successfully and dramatically

repulsed by a S.H.I.E.L.D.
affiliated team known as the Avengers.
Composed of some of the most powerful individuals
located on Earth and elsewhere, the Avengers

had been secretly assembled by Director Nick
Fury in the weeks prior, to fight the battles

that S.H.I.E.L.D. never could.
Just two years later however, Steve Rogers,
known to the world as Captain America, discovered

that HYDRA had not been completely destroyed
during World War Two and instead had infiltrated

S.H.I.E.L.D. at nearly every level.
With S.H.I.E.L.D. granted renewed resources following the Battle
of New York,

HYDRA intended to take command
of a new generation of Helicarriers and use
them to kill over 20 million individuals deemed

a threat to their future plans.
Together with Director Fury and others, Steve
Rogers was able to prevent HYDRA from enacting

its plans, but the effort destroyed S.H.I.E.L.D.'s
headquarters and their most sensitive information

was leaked to the public.
With the full extent of HYDRA's manipulations
still unknown, S.H.I.E.L.D. was disavowed

by its sponsor governments and its remaining
agents were subject to a worldwide manhunt.

Scattered groups still loyal to the ideals
of S.H.I.E.L.D. continued their work from

an assortment of secret bases, slowly gathering
their resources with the aim of eventually

re-establishing the organization.
Agent Coulson, a long-time associate of Nick
Fury, was most responsible for this effort,

recruiting mercenaries, former agents, and
others to help fill his ranks.

Together with these S.H.I.E.L.D. loyalists,
Coulson continued the fight against
HYDRA, rival S.H.I.E.L.D. factions,

and far more dangerous threats that
loomed on the edges of time and space.

Eventually, Coulson was appointed as S.H.I.E.L.D.'s
new Director by Nick Fury and legitimized

again following the signing of the Sokovia
Accords which regulated the activities of

enhanced individuals.
S.H.I.E.L.D.'s return cost Coulson his position
who resigned to keep his existence secret.

S.H.I.E.L.D. was founded with a simple mission:
to protect mankind.

Across its history that mission has expanded
to include superhuman powers, extra dimensional

forces and alien empires.
It has been destroyed, restored, and destroyed
again, but S.H.I.E.L.D. is more than just

a name or an emblem, like the Avengers, it
is an idea.

So long as men and women remain loyal to that
idea, S.H.I.E.L.D. will remain.
