8 Super Heroes Who Worked for S.H.I.E.L.D.

Super Heroes who’ve acted as agents of the organization, or found themselves helping out.

Spider-Man SHIELD

Captain America

The Sentinel of Liberty ranks right up there with the splashiest, most well-known S.H.I.E.L.D. operatives of all. Cap received his “Priority A-1” badge from Nick Fury not long after the hero’s awakening in modern times. Check out: TALES OF SUSPENSE #78

Spider-Man

S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Phil Coulson regularly rubs shoulders with some pretty incredible people in the line of duty, but sometimes he needs more help. In AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. #5, none other than Spider-Man himself made an appearance to help.

Falcon

Cap’s former partner Sam Wilson fell into S.H.I.E.L.D.’s orbit when he took over the leadership of the organization’s so-called “Super Agents.” The group included the Texas Twister, Marvel Boy, Blue Streak, and Vamp.

Spider-Woman

Jessica Drew segued from being a HYDRA agent to heading off on dangerous assignments for S.H.I.E.L.D…but not before she tried to kill S.H.I.E.L.D.’s director, Nick Fury! Check out: MARVEL SPOTLIGHT #32

Iron Man

Tony Stark’s work for S.H.I.E.L.D. started early on when he designed weapons for the organization, but after the Civil War between super heroes, he took on the challenge of becoming S.H.I.E.L.D.’s director.

Quake
