It consists of the group of the most elite trained agents in the Marvel Universe, S.H.I.E.L.D .– also known as the "Strategic Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division" first introduced to the world of comic books with Strange story feature "Nick Fury, Agent S.H.I.E.L.D." Very inspired by the 1960s spy fiction series Male from U.N.C.L.E., an interesting acronym for law enforcement organizations throughout the world that was originally the Office of the Supreme Center, Espionage International's Law Enforcement Division before later becoming the "Directorate of Strategic Hazard Intervention for Espionage Hazards." The name we know today comes from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Recently updated for the seventh season and sweeping more viewers than the Marvel Netflix series, Agent S.H.I.E.L.D. has revived the counter-intelligence secret agent by creating mythology for the organization's operations, putting it in the universe of Marvel films, even though on a much smaller scale that barely crosses directly with widescreen peers.
Over the years, various figures have spearheaded the agency, ranging from the bad version of David Hasselhoff from Nick Fury which was misused to Phil Coulson who was revived with his prosthetic hands increasing cyber-. With every new executive director, top-level assassin, or super human agent added to the cause, the appearance of S.H.I.E.L.D. has changed, even though the basic rules of government remain consistent.

From now on
20 Operate under the Order of the World Security Council
The World Security Council which is portrayed horribly and shrouded in mystery is an elite international organization that operates above the executive director S.H.I.E.L.D. Consisting of a small room of influential figures known only by official agents, they regularly meet with directors to talk about urgent matters, often meeting through conference calls.
In the MCU, the Board became very involved in Nick Fury's operations immediately after the acquisition of S.H.I.E.L.D. over Tesseract, recommending that the agency immediately begin procedures to develop Tesseract powered weapons. Immediately after Loki's attack in New York, Board Member Alexander Pierce, an undercover HYDRA agent, began a plan to secretly eliminate the Council. After the deadly attack on S.H.I.E.L.D., he succeeded in defeating many of his members, leaving behind the questionable future of the Council.
19 Fighting Threats Beyond Special National Security Standards
Originated in the 1960s when secret international intelligence agents with interesting acronyms were trending, the origin of S.H.I.E.L.D has changed over the years. First described under the jurisdiction of the US government, the organization was later said to fall under UN control only to be revised later with twelve mysterious council members giving orders.
Although the exact origin is thin, S.H.I.E.L.D. they have always been strong agents with endless militaristic abilities and technological weaponry that they have, making them allies who do not have to always depend on supermen. Because of their high level of intelligence about all foreign and domestic problems, and their unlimited funding, all operators are tasked with dealing with threats beyond typical national security measures.
18 Give Scientific Research Outside of Human Understanding
In its latest facilities, S.H.I.E.L.D. home to some of the most brilliant scientific minds and medical experts on Earth, expanding knowledge far beyond human understanding. Before the organization was under the HYDRA Rebellion, new agents recruited from the MCU were trained in the security of S.H.I.E.L.D. Academy, with cadets the most intellectually gifted learning under the Academy of Science and Technology.
Utilizing space discoveries, knowledge of extra-dimensional realities, and understanding of magical power, this agency is able to save most of its Earth-destroying discoveries for its agents. Examples are exhibited in the first season, when S.H.I.E.L.D. managed to revive Phil Coulson using serum derived from the blood of a Kree.
17 All Agencies Must Operate Within Its Permit Level
It operates under a strategically made numerical system, compartmentalization of various departments of S.H.I.E.D ensures that only authorized workers have access to certain confidential information. Given a permission card, every worker from S.H.I.E.L.D. Facilities are permitted to access various rooms depending on their credentials. With ten levels of licensing in effect, as well as three additional licensing levels classified as Alpha, Omega, and Tango, agents with the highest level of power are often given the most information about confidential projects in various organizational facilities.
After Phil Coulson took over as director replacing Nick Fury, he imposed a new permit system dubbed "Spectrum of Security," which uses color instead of numbers as a way to ensure that no members feel "less than" their coworkers.
16 Swear as the last oath of defense for mankind
After the HYDRA Rebellion, Phil Coulson was appointed as the new director of S.H.I.E.L.D., which was tasked with preventing HYDRA from cleaning up the remaining loyalists in the organization. His efforts finally made him labeled by another faction of S.H.I.E.L.D. headed by Robert Gonzalez. Despite the diminishing opportunities to rebuild the organization, Coulson remained strong because other parts of the world were in disarray.
As an agent and protector of humanity, all S.H.I.E.L.D. cooperatives must swear as the last line of defense in the world, a fact that Coulson affirmed in the season of one Agent S.H.I.E.L.D. If all other options fail, the agency must act as a public guard, even if all hope seems to be lost.
15 Leave No One Left Behind
As high-risk jobs, field agents will definitely experience casualties throughout their careers; however, as a general rule, saving fellow members from danger is an absolute necessity if the organization will remain strong. As soldiers, members must be trusted when fighting with each other, which means agents place their lives on the line knowing that their colleagues will protect them.
Given the qualifications of field agents, who often need extraordinary IQ, expert shooting skills, perfect hand fighting, and calmness in times of despair, number S.H.I.E.L.D. very efficient. members only grow smaller with each life lost. Therefore, it is still important not to leave anyone behind.
14 Willing to Copy Their Similarities
Although the Special Weapons division S.H.I.E.L.D is responsible for reverse engineering technology from various resources, both terrestrial and other worlds, creating some of the most sophisticated weapons on Earth, nothing compares to its peak achievement: Life-Model Decoy. As a very reliable technology, LMD allows their agents to clone their images thanks to the very rare Epidurium metal, a resource considered more valuable than Vibranium or Adamantium in the Marvel universe. Being able to imitate someone's exact appearance, precious metals can duplicate the user so that the person's double robot will look indistinguishable from the original.
Although S.H.I.E.L.D. have been using LMD since Nick Fury first discovered Epidurium in 1961, they continue to be very useful, especially when making feedback on HYDRA, which continues to try to kill many members of the organization.
13 If Kidnapping Occurs, Other Agents Become Mission Leaders
Briefly referred to by God of War, Ares, at Hercules # 113, Article IV, Section 106 (C) of S.H.I.E.L.D. The Rules of Engagement define the way an agent must respond before a potentially life-threatening situation to a partner. In case his partner is unable or in danger, he is authorized to use lethal force against the enemy to save the life of his partner.
Although this rule appears as a simple logic, it also clarifies another major point regarding the ruling mission leader. If for any reason, the current mission leader from an assignment cannot fulfill his assignment due to kidnapping or compromised position, it is the responsibility of the next acting agent to take on the role of mission leader until the mission is carried out.
12 Beware of Interventions from HYDRA
An authoritarian paramilitary group vowed on the inheritance of evil, HYDRA debuted in 1965, spreading its influence throughout the world like many-headed snakes from which the group got its name. Although the origin of the organization preceded humanity, the tactics of evil world domination really began under the control of Baron Wolfgang von Strucker, whose modus operandi was to find a neo-fascist New Order restructuring the future view of the criminal organization.
As sophisticated technology such as S.H.I.E.L.D., HYDRA has become its mortal enemy, infiltrating government institutions through its many members who work secretly as double agents. Because HYDRA's highly trained espionage members are always a threat, S.H.I.E.L.D. agents must remain vigilant at all times. Otherwise, confidential information can be a weapon against them.
11 Building and Protecting Facilities for Secret Projects
At the beginning Avenger, Loki infiltrated S.H.I.E.L.D. facilities in the Mojave Desert. Entering through a wormhole caused by Tesseract, he was able to take Batu Infinity, using his scepter to disturb one of the most guarded S.H.I.E.L.D research programs.
Project P.E.G.A.S.U.S., an operation approved by S.H.I.E.L.D. to research Tesseract, is one of the many projects that have appeared in the MCU. Other similar operations include Project T.A.H.I.T.I., which harvests aliens to revive Agent Phil Coulson, as well as Project G.O.L.I.A.T.H., which uses Pym Hank Pym Particles to experiment with expanding one's body mass.
10 Always Have a Backup Plan
In a closely guarded agency such as S.H.I.E.L.D., mistrust is built into the organization, especially when there is a reputation for double agents infiltrating the agency. Given the knowledge that plans often go awry, in the best interest all agents have plan B before going to any mission with firearms.
At MCU, under the leadership of Nick Fury, the Avengers Initiative began as an umbrella project to prevent global disasters. Applied as a "red code" scenario if the world needed it, it has since prevented the world from ending at least twice, but as Fury hinted at Avenger: Infinity War, he has a backup plan even for the Avengers, calling for Captain Marvel's service after Thanos flicked half the universe to be forgotten.
9 Agencies Must Understand Organizational Equipment
More than special enforcement espionage agents that deal with super humans and paranormal, S.H.I.E.L.D. it is also home to some of the most scientifically advanced Earth facilities, which specialize in technology that is able to reverse engineer other world powers for the betterment of humanity.
Apart from the Life-Model Decoys which has proven to be one of the most reliable parts of S.H.I.E.L.D technology, agents have been seen using famous gadgets and weapons that are both entertaining. The most prominent among them was the 1962 Chevrolet Corvette owned by Phil Coulson, named Lola. Another important equipment is the Prototype Gun Destroyer Armor made from the debris of the Asgardian robot, known as the Destroyer, and the shotgun ax made by Mack as a firearm and capable melee weapon.
8 Keep Property Damage Minimal
Although the cleaning of the city after the catastrophic event is not included in the jurisdiction of S.H.I.E.L.D., it is a common courtesy to prevent as much chaos as possible. While S.H.I.E.L.D. has helped repair previous damage, often the task of Damage Control, a joint venture between Tony Stark and the federal government, to deal with such matters.
At the start of the MCU, before Tony Stark's involvement with the Avengers, Damage Control was under the supervision of S.H.I.E.L.D. and oversee the destruction of the highway immediately after the battle between Iron Man and Obaja Stane. Although it is no longer an organizational responsibility, it is still important for all S.H.I.E.L.D. agent to prevent expensive mistakes on the phone.
7 Use Lethal Force if Required
Although S.H.I.E.L.D. having a history of detaining enemies, often transferring them to remote cages in remote locations that are not determined for further evaluation, not every gloomy meeting with criminals can end without danger. Trained fighters are often given weapons that are able to knock out enemies, such as I.C.E.R. railguns that use Dendrotoxin to knock out opponents, but in the event the enemy cannot be captured, some situations require extreme steps to secure public safety.
While this rule might seem like there is no brain for many operations, it is never in the best interest of the organization to develop a reputation as a threatening, overly aggressive agent. Therefore, lethal force must be the last choice.
6 Stay Open for Travel
As the world headquarters and capital ship S.H.I.E.L.D., Helicarrier was first proposed by Tony Stark as a way to maintain S.H.I.E.L.D. from an impending attack. Able to maintain self-powered flight through four large engines, its mobility allows agents to carry out a number of direct strike missions while maintaining stealth.
Since debuting in 1965, various versions of the Helicarrier have emerged throughout the Marvel world, each with their own different abilities. From the incognito technology that is able to avoid radar to the ship which can be divided into three different vehicles, the base of the S.H.I.E.L.D operation has shown a fair increase. It always remains mobile, making travel an absolute necessity for every field agent.
5 Disguised with Some Secret Identities
Even though it is a secret espionage organization that relies heavily on the agent's ability to remain unrecognized, S.H.I.E.L.D. are well-known agents who are often in the public, making it difficult for the mission of some agents to be more identifiable. However, for agents whose identities are unknown, it is still important to operate with code names and maintain their personal identities, operating under various personalities while disguised.
As pointed out by many leading agents S.H.I.E.D, it is very helpful to speak in many languages fluently to exchange information with foreigners who might appear on the agency's radar. This is also useful for building extensive background stories for all fake identities, memorizing every detail if the target is suspicious.
4 Superhuman agents are supporters
Despite the secret tactics of S.H.I.E.L.D. to bring down an enemy is often enough to wave unnecessary back-ups, the organization does not always summon several large weapons from time to time. During their decades of history, secret agencies have gathered some of the most prominent Marvel Universe superheroes to join in this struggle.
Although Daisy Johnson is empowered with seismic, a.k.a. Earthquake, maybe S.H.I.E.L.D is the most powerful repetitive superhuman in the MCU, thanks to its ability to manipulate vibrations capable of destroying the planet, it is not the only dangerous ally for the organization. In comics, famous names like Captain America, Man-Thing, Ant-Man, and the Hulk have worked like several top recruits S.H.I.E.L.D.
3 Maintain Communication with Sister and Spinoff Organizations
Even with all the various departments committed to examining the most inexplicable cases in the world, S.H.I.E.L.D. absolutely not able to handle all Earth problems, which is why your organization and spinoffs exist.
Dealing with extradimensional examples of security, A.R.M.O.R. stands for Alternate Reality Monitoring and Operational Response and is the first sister organization of S.H.I.E.L.D, which helps in issues relating to alternative realities. Meanwhile, S.W.O.R.D., also known as the Sentient World Department of Observation and Response, is there to deal with space issues. Apart from your team, other spin-off agents exist, such as S.T.R.I.K.E., S.A.F.E. and W. A.N.D, all of which are S.H.I.E.L.D. agents must communicate with.
2 All Agencies Must Comply with Directors
As chief honcho of S.H.I.E..L.D., It is the responsibility of the executive director to carry out the orders of the World Security Council, assigning assignments to operators who fulfill the requirements for humanitarian protection. Over the years, various directors have added their own unique rounds to these positions, using their own characteristics to benefit the agency.
At MCU, Nick Fury's tenure began a government of secrecy within the organization. Under the belief that heavy compartmentalization would only make the most qualified agent in knowledge, he was able to prepare and militate the impending enemy by securing funds for secret projects. Since his reign, others have continued to protect the S.H.I.E.L.D project from the public, including Phil Coulson, who took over after Fury's departure.
1 Work with the Superhuman Team to Stop Global Threats
sinking a ton of funds into Triskelion, one of the organization's main headquarters, Director Nick Fury pioneered the Avengers Initiative, a project dedicated to recruiting the most powerful individuals on Earth. This project began the first phase of the MCU and triggered a long-term relationship between S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Avengers.
Although the Avengers of the MCU remain relatively far from S.H.I.E.L.D. unless called, other heroes are more responsive, especially Captain America, who is often seen working with Black Window and S.H.I.E.L.D. operation. Likewise, it was determined that Nick Fury has a working relationship with Captain Marvel and will be seen working again with Spider-Man in the future Spider-Man: Far from home.
