First appearance



The Strategic Hazard Intervention Espionage Logistics Directorate was created to be a worldwide intelligence and peacekeeping organization dedicated to protecting the nations and people of Earth from all threats to its security. Under Director Nick Fury, S.H.I.E.L.D. was very good at its job. Unfortunately, part of its mission was to contain the increased threat from the growing mutant population, which would lead Nick Fury into direct conflict with the man who would rule Earth, Magneto. Following Magneto's victory, Fury was relegated to training his replacements before his presumed death.[2]

Under the command of Sebastian Shaw, S.H.I.E.L.D. became completely loyal to Magneto and his beliefs. They worked with him to keep the dominant mutant population of the planet in control. Using a combination of mutant and human agents as well as Sentinels, S.H.I.E.L.D. is an example of the new world order established by Magneto and his victory over those human oppressors who wished mutantkind destroyed.

The Red Guard, led by agent James Howlett, codenamed Wolverine, is the agency's top strike force.[1]
