[TV Series] Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D
Hence comes the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Originally, S.H.I.E.L.D stands for Supreme Headquarters of International Espionage Law-enforcement Division. But well, since stuff is happening around America, might as well renamed it to something more appropriate, and in this show it stands for, Strategic Homeland Intervention Enforcement and Logistic Division. This show was first aired on 24th September 2013. Up until today, there are 13 episodes that been out, and for their first season, they gonna make it to 22 episodes.

The show started with a pilot episode that shows the aftermath of the Avenger's battle for New York city, linked with the Iron Man little escapade with the Extremis terrorist. Grant Ward (Brett Dalton) is a S.H.I.E.L.D with level 6 clearance was assigned with the case to tracked hacker group known as the Rising Tide because they seems to have info that is not super-good to be exposed to outside world. For example like, is you neighbor have superpowers and had just survived and exploding building? That kind of information. The Rising Tide is exposing stories of emerging superheroes, and the S.H.I.E.L.D is really having a raging pain in ass to clean up all of the messes.
To ensure that humanity remain blissfully ignorant, the S.H.I.E.L.D track down these super-powered human and offered them safety, as safe as anyone could be in a high-tech prison cell can be. So in order to do just that, a team- wait, didn't the Avengers did this same thing? Well, it doesn't matter. The S.H.I.E.L.D need to assembled a team of their top agents in order to clean up all of these messes. Mr. Grand Ward, welcome to level 7 clearance.
Nah, I'm just pulling your legs. Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen) is one the team member. She is actually a veteran field agent that had a bad experience, very bad experience. that caused her to take a desk job to urmm.. drown herself with enough paperwork to forget her terrible past memories. Wait- wasn't Charlie Harper also a bad memory? Is it about him? It was, wasn't it?
No, that was a different TV show. It wasn't exactly revealed what it was but she had a nickname, the 'Cavalry'. So we can pretty much guess what it was all about. Best left it alone, some thing are not to be remembered.
|Cute Female Hacker|
She was captured during one of her session in posting to the Rising Tide website or something. She do it all from her van that was filled with electronic hardware - wait did she just power up all those laptops and monitors using her van's battery? Anyway, she was recruited because she is an enigma to S.H.I.E.L.D as she herself doesn't know her own past. She had an obscure past. And the S.H.I.E.L.D is willing to help, and by help I mean utilizing her skills.
He created surveillance, espionage, and high tech stuff that allows him to play with his multi-monitored pad. But other than that he also make weapons for the S.H.I.E.L.D's agent. Actually, I don't get it myself. This guy is an expert of technology, engineering, physics, he even familiar with foreign tech such as the Tesseract. In a way, he should be the team mech geek. Well, I guess if we wanted to hear somebody rambling about info this and intel that, might as well use the cute female hacker to spout nonsense without us losing interest.
|The Other Nerd|
Familiar with foreign biochem tech, she managed to identify some alien stuff have been mixed with the new drugs that makes people go superhero, leading the team toward the Extremis, the Centipedem and the Tesseract. Wait, is it all connected? Well, its only the first season. I'm sure it would be explained along the way.
|Team Leader level 7|
Wait, didn't he died, after the little showdown with Loki in The Avengers movie? Well, he claimed to be saved in timely fashion, and Nick Fury faked his death to motivated the Avengers to fight. But urm.. I'm pretty sure that was fatal when he was stabbed. He was lying in the pool of his own blood. That can be right.
Well, when you are in an organization that have helicarrier equipped with high tech lab even Dr. Bruce Banner finds convenience, it does makes sense if he was really saved. Though, if you are familiar with the S.H.I.E.L.D or the Avengers animated series, then you might realize that S.H.I.E.L.D have this thing called Life Model Decoy (LMD) that Nick Fury have been using countless of time to escape from sticky situation. So, is agent Phil Coulson is real, or he is just an android because Nick Fury really miss him. Only time will tell. Maybe at that time, we'll see him harassing Tony Stark again.
