Supreme Headquarters, International Espionage, Law-Enforcement Division, or S.H.I.E.L.D. for short, is a large military organization whose headquarters is on a flying base over New York City. S.H.I.E.L.D. is lead by Colonel Nick Fury. S.H.I.E.L.D.'s purpose is to maintain security in the world. It belongs to every country, and no country at the same time.
It was first introduced in the Spider-Man in the Episode, ‘’Day of the Chameleon’’. In it, the escaped criminal, Chameleon, is trying to assassinate two world leaders at J. Jonah Jameson’s party. Colonel Fury warns him of the danger and gives him a pin that could summon S.H.I.E.L.D. agents. S.H.I.E.L.D. ends up working with Spider-Man and they catch Chameleon.
S.H.I.E.L.D. made it’s return appearance in Spider-Man in the season three episode, ‘’The man Without Fear’’ featuring a guest appearance by Daredevil and the return of Chameleon and Kingpin. In it, their only real role was the arrest of Chameleon, taking him to their high security prison in the air.
Nick Fury and Agent One talk to Spidey.Their small cameo in season three paid off big time in season four. In it, Kingpin reveals that they having been monitoring Chameleon during his imprisonment after ‘’The Man Without Fear’’. Kingpin launches an attack on S.H.I.E.L.D. to abduct John Hardeski, an infamous cat burglar and father of Felicia Hardy. Kinpin needs him so that he can obtain the Super Soldier serum.
Spider-Man was also dealing with S.H.I.E.L.D. at the time, looking for files on John Hardeski to help Felicia find her father. Spidey and Black Cat rescue John Hardeski from Kingpin’s clutches. Spidey then takes Hardeski back to S.H.I.E.L.D. Nick Fury is then shown to appreciate Spider-Man’s work as a hero.
S.H.I.E.L.D. makes it’s final appearance in Spider-Man in the Six Forgotten Warriors saga in season five. The Destroyer is working with them to prevent Kingpin and Red Skull from accessing a doomsday weapon. They also work to stop Electro’s mad rampage through New York. Electro brings S.H.I.E.L.D. to its knees, destroying the flying base.
S.H.I.E.L.D. returns in Iron Man, serving as heroes who don’t see eye to eye with Iron Man. The two team up as much as they fight each other. One such instance was when Walter Stark returned, long presumed dead. They were played against each other by A.I.M., and later teamed up to fight the organization they both despised. They were both also aware of Justin Hammer’s criminal activities but despite numerous attempts, neither of them was able to prove it.
Dum Dum Dugan helped Iron Man fight against the Crimson Dynamo, however the battle ended with a nuke going off.
S.H.I.E.L.D. sent Agent Gabriel to Gamma Base to help General Ross capture The Hulk. The two of them remained in charge of the Hulkbuster operation; working together until the day they captured The Hulk. When that day finally came, Gabriel pulled a fast one on Ross, and took the Hulk’s body back to S.H.I.E.L.D.. Gabriel hated betraying Ross, but he felt he had to under S.H.I.E.L.D. orders.
He later returned as the head of one of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s underwater facilities, helping to defeat The Hybrid, an essence that took control of its host’s body. He then apparently started dating She-Hulk. It’s unknown if he killed himself before he finished dinner.
