S.H.I.E.L.D. was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby.



S.H.I.E.L.D. was co-founded by Howard Stark, Chester Phillips, and Peggy Carter more than twenty years before the events involving the creation Iron Man armor. After the World War II, SHIELD recruited repentant Nazi scientists, including Arnim Zola. Zola took advantage of this to infiltrate HYDRA in the nascent S.H.I.E.L.D.


In 1989, Hank Pym went to Triskelion and submitted his resignation to Howard Stark, Mitchell Carson, and Peggy Carter after learning that S.H.I.E.L.D. wanted to replicate its formula. Pym hit Carson against the table after he insulted him; Carter and Stark unsuccessful tried to convince him but Pym already had taken its decision.

A couple of days later, Coulson attended a charity dinner organized by Obadiah Stane (but guests believed that Stark had organized). Here, Coulson met Stark, with whom agreed to meet to discuss his escape.

When Stane found out that Pepper copied the files from his computer, including the video that incriminated him in the kidnapping of Tony, Pepper decided to have the talk that Coulson wanted so much. Pepper informed Coulson that Stane had planned to assassinate Stark to become the only president of the company. That same night, Coulson and other SHIELD agents went to Stark Industries to arrest Obadiah Stane but Stane was prepared as was holding his new armor, the Iron Monger.

After the death of Stane, Coulson gave Stark an alibi and informed him that the director of SHIELD want to talk to him. That night, Stark discovered that someone had infiltrated into his house, that someone was the director of SHIELD, Nick Fury who wanted to talk about the Avengers initiative.

When a man unsuccessfully tried to lift the hammer Coulson ordered his men to capture him so he can interrogate him. He questioned the man, who was shocked and did not answer any question he was doing. Erik Selvig suddenly breaks into the facility and told Coulson told that this man was his assistant, Donald Blake. Although Coulson not believe in Selvig, he frees Thor but orders his men to follow as they could be hiding something important.

S.H.I.E.L.D. maintains a fleet of Acura vehicles for the regular deployment of field agents and scientists.
