History

S.H.I.E.L.D. was first led by General Thaddeus "Thunderbolt" Ross and is controlled entirely by the United States. During the Gulf War, the Weapon X Project, headed by Colonel John Wraith, was sanctioned by S.H.I.E.L.D. and resulted in the creation of Wolverine. [citation needed]

After Ross' apparent death (it was later reveal that he survived), Nick Fury was then selected as the organization's executive director. His first actions were to shut down Weapon X and resurrect the Super-Soldier program, commissioning Dr. Bruce Banner to try to recreate the formula that made Captain America. This failed and resulted in the creation of the Hulk when Banner injected his serum into himself. It was later revealed that the chemical called Oz, which turned Norman Osborn into the Green Goblin, was also created in hopes of recreating the Super-Soldier formula. Spider-Man was also a product of the Oz formula. Also, the creation of the Sandman and Electro are due to Hammer Industries attempting to recreate the Super-Soldier formula for S.H.I.E.L.D. [citation needed]

S.H.I.E.L.D. later created its own superhero team, the Ultimates. Later still, it brought the X-Men and Spider-Man under S.H.I.E.L.D. jurisdiction. However, S.H.I.E.L.D. later severed ties with the X-Men.[1] In further in upholding its agenda on policing post-human threats, the organization maintains ties to a sister organization in Europe, the European Defense Initiative as well as the English-operated S.T.R.I.K.E. [citation needed]

However, S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Ultimates' 'policing' actions were immediately scrutinized by every other nation, leading to the Liberators' attack on America and forcing the Ultimates to break away from S.H.I.E.L.D.[2]

As of the events of Ultimate Power, S.H.I.E.L.D. became under the directorship of Captain Carol Danvers, as Nick Fury was stranded in the Squadron Supreme's universe. [citation needed]

Following the aftermath of Ultimatum, Fury returned to S.H.I.E.L.D. in charge of the black ops unit called Avengers, and made a plan to recover his place as Director of S.H.I.E.L.D.. Circumstances following an intelligence leak led to a conflict between Fury's Avengers and Ultimates who were manipulated by Gregory Stark, who temporarily became Director, in an attempt to remove the organization's previous Directors and smuggled Super-Soldiers to supply the rebels of rogue states to help pro-democracy forces and fueling his ambitious agenda. Stark's conspiracy was put to an end when he was killed during a fierce battle with the Avengers and Ultimates. Danvers was forced to resign as ordered by the President of the United States for allowing Gregory Stark to commit crimes against the United Nations, and so Fury returned to his position as S.H.I.E.L.D. Director.[3]

After the crisis in Europe with the Children of Tomorrow, the U.S. President activated the Winter Protocols, dismissing Fury and giving the role of director to Marvin Flumm.[citation needed]

With a previous nuclear attack of Reed Richards against Washington, D.C., killing the President and almost the entire presidential cabinet, a new Civil War started. Steven Rogers was elected president by the majority of the American population and after S.H.I.E.L.D.'s new director Flumm tried to kill him, Monica Chang was put in charge of S.H.I.E.L.D. by Rogers.[4]

After the near-destruction of Earth at the hands of Galactus,[5] S.H.I.E.L.D. was dismantled and Chang was cited in court as she and the organization had failed to successfully protect the world.[6]

Some months later, Nick Fury rebuilt S.H.I.E.L.D., and they re-installed in the rebuilt Triskelion.[7]
