The Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement, and Logistics Division is a U.S. government agency. Howard Stark was a founding member. Nick Fury is the current executive head of the SHIELD Agents have included Phil Coulson, Natasha Romanoff, Jasper Sitwell, Clint Barton, and Maria Hill.
When Loki stole the Tesseract and escaped along with several enslaved SHIELD personnel, Director Fury reactivated the Avengers Initiative to counter the threat. Agent Romanoff was sent to bring in Dr. Banner, Agent Coulson was sent to retrieve Tony Stark, and Fury himself approached Steve Rogers, all in the hope that together these individuals might combine their respective talents to help with the problem of Loki and the missing Tesseract.
SHIELD assisted Rogers in his capture of Loki, and then provided a prison on the helicarrier once Loki had been apprehended. It transpired that Loki had intended to be captured however, a ruse to sow the seeds of discord throughout the ranks of the forces assembled against him. His mind-controlled agents later attacked the helicarrier to free him, heavily damaging it in the process. The attack became a bitter defeat for SHIELD, although Fury turned one of its defining losses into the motivational push that Stark and Rogers needed. In short order the remaining heroes set off in pursuit of Loki, and began referring to themselves as the Avengers.
During the Chitauri invasion in Manhattan, the World Security Council ordered the deployment of nuclear missile to the city in the hope of stopping the invasion. Two planes launched to carry out this directive, but Fury managed to prevent one from taking off, and then Iron Man intercepted missile from the other.
After the Avengers' victory and departure, SHIELD continued its normal military activities.

Battle vs. NEST and UNIT (by So-Pro Warrior)Edit
The SHIELD transport lands on the ground and Nick Fury and the 14 SHIELD Agents with him exit the transport and head to the crash site of the Dalek saucer. At the crash site Alan Mace along with 14 UNIT soldiers have secured the area and are searching for signs of Dalek survivors and while Mace and 10 UNIT soldiers stay outside the other 4 secure the inside of the ship and find no survivors and prepare to set explosives to the ship. However outside of the ship and near a large pile of rubble Nick Fury and the agents of SHIELD get to cover and spot the Dalek saucer along with UNIT soldiers guarding it.
"So we aren't the only ones looking for the tech on this ship wonder who they are?" Fury says
"They could by HYDRA agents sir just disguised so they aren't recognized." A SHIELD Agent says.
"Maybe alright get the men into position and get ready to engage them." Fury says
The SHIELD Agents get into positions and take aim with their M4A1 Carbines, AKM's, and SIG SG 552's and Fury takes aim with his M4A1 and on Fury's orders the SHIELD Agents open fire on the UNIT soldiers. Mace and the UNIT soldiers quickly turn to see Nick Fury and the SHIELD agents and Mace quickly yells "GET TO COVER CONTACT!" the UNIT soldiers and Mace quickly take cover but one UNIT soldier is riddles with bullets and dies instantly. Mace takes out his SIG P226 and fires back at Nick Fury and the Agents of SHIELD while the other UNIT soldiers including the ones inside the ship who quickly run out and into cover return fire with their M4A1 Carbines, Heckler and Koch G36's, and Olympic Arms K23B's. Mace takes aim with his SIG and fires at a SHIELD Agent and scores a hit on the Agent's head. Unknown to both SHIELD and UNIT nearby a team of NEST soldiers lead by William Lennox have entered the area and hear the gunfight between SHIELD and UNIT.
"Alright men it looks like we have unkown hostiles at that crash site and sounds like they aren't friendly so we need to be careful got it." William Lennox says
"Yes sir!" The NEST soldiers say
The NEST soldiers get into cover near the crash site and see the firefight going on between UNIT and SHIELD and Lennox gets his men into position and tells them to wait for his signal to open fire. Lennox takes aim with his Bushmaster ACR while the rest of the soldiers around him take aim with their M4A1 Variants and SCAR's. Lennox fires a shot at one of the UNIT soldiers and manages to strike him through the back of his head. The other NEST soldiers open fire and a NEST soldier with a M4A1 manages to strike a SHIELD Agent with a couple of rounds to the torso. Mace has some of the UNIT soldiers to focus their attention on the NEST team and Nick Fury does the same with his SHIELD agents. A UNIT soldier fires at a NEST soldier with his G36 and manges to score a headshot to the NEST soldier but a SHIELD Agent fires his AKM and manages to down another NEST soldier. All three special forces soldiers continue to exchange fire at one and other which continues on for a long time.
The fight between the three special forces soldiers has been going on for 10 minutes and UNIT is the first to make a move.
"Sir we are surrounded on all sides this is not a good position we have enemy forces on both our front and rear flanks we need to pull out of this area." A UNIT soldier says
"MEN we need to split up to divide their forces the 6 of you will come with me you men will head in the opposite direction." Mace says
"Yes Sir!" The UNIT soldiers reply
Mace and the UNIT soldiers all start running into the two opposite directions however one of the UNIT soldiers with Mace doesn't make it and is shot as he is running away. Both Fury and Lennox order their men to also split up to look for the two groups of soldiers. Lennox and Fury take 6 of their men with them and head in the same direction as Mace while their other soldiers head the other way.
On one side on the city of London...
The six UNIT soldiers enter a warehouse and while two of them secure the front the other UNIT soldiers head out to secure the rest of the house. Unknown to them is that NEST had already entered from the back of the warehouse however both teams don't know of each others presence. At the front of the house the two UNIT soldiers keep an eye out for signs of the other two Special Forces teams. Just then a bullets start hitting the walls near the windows where the two UNIT soldiers are and they both get to cover. One of the UNIT soldiers sees where the shots came from and directs the other UNIT soldier to the position and they both open up at the location. At the location are the six SHIELD agents who continue to fire at the UNIT soldiers at the front of the Warehouse. One of the UNIT soldiers grabs the Stinger missile from the other UNIT soldiers back and takes aim at the location of the SHIELD agents location and fires. The missile travels to the location and while four of the SHIELD agents escape the blast two of them are not lucky and while one gets blown backthe other gets blown up. A SHIELD agent gets up from his cover grabs the RPG from his dead allies back and fires at the location of the UNIT soldiers. The RPG impacts on one of the windows and kills the UNIT soldier at the window. The other UNIT soldier gets injured tries to get up but finds his leg torn in half because of the shrapenel and grabs his Olympic Arms K23B and waits for the SHIELD agents. Meanwhile on the other side of the warehouse the other four UNIT soldiers hear the commotion and decide to send one of their men back to investigate on the others. However as soon as the UNIT soldier exits the room that he and the other soldiers were in he is greeted with shots to the back by the NEST soldiers. The UNIT soldiers hear the shots and one of them takes aim at the door and then one of the NEST soldiers tries to enter the room but is met with a bullet to the head. The NEST team stack up at the door and the NEST soldier in the lead pops out with his SCAR-L and fires at the UNIT soldiers and while firing signals the NEST soldier in the back to get to the other side of the door. The NEST soldier quickly runs to the other side of the door and both NEST soldiers open fire on the UNIT soldiers and manage to kill one of the UNIT soldiers. Meanwhile back at the front of the warehouse the SHIELD agents make their move on the building and as the leader enters the building the UNIT soldier that survived the RPG fires his K23B and kills the lead SHIELD agent but is put down by the other SHIELD agents that enter. Back at the back of the warehouse another NEST soldier tries to get to the other side of the door but a UNIT soldier manages to hit the NEST soldier in the leg, the NEST soldier on the other side helps the injured NEST soldier to the other side and puts him against the wall until the others can help him. The NEST soldiers decide to storm into the room to handle the last two UNIT soldiers and they charge in and mange to kill both of the UNIT soldiers but two of their men are also killed. The remaining two NEST soldiers secure the room meanwhile outside the injured NEST soldier hears footsteps and takes out his Glock 17 and as soon as he sees a SHIELD agent he fires at the SHIELD agent and kills himanother tries to enter but is also shot dead by the NEST soldierthe other two SHIELD agents enter and fire their SIG and AKM at the injured NEST soldier and kill him. The other two NEST soldiers take up position and one SHIELD agent enters the room but his shot dead by the two NEST soldiersthe other enters and manges to kill one of the NEST soldiers but the last NEST soldier shoots the SHIELD agent dead with his ACR. The NEST soldier gets out from cover and exits the room, he heads to the front and finds the two dead UNIT soldiers and after securing the front area tries to contack Lennox through radio but finds himslef unable to and decides to go look for Lennox's team.
Meanwhile on the other side of the city...
Mace and his five remaining UNIT soldiers are moving through the ruins of the city of London until Mace orders his men to hold up and get into position. They see before them Nick Fury and his six SHIELD agents and on Mace's orders open fire on the SHIELD personel and as the SHIELD agents head for cover two of them are killed in the open. Fury and the last four of his SHIELD agents return fire on Mace and his UNIT soldiers and one of the SHIELD agents with his M4A1 Carbine manage to hit one of the UNIT soldiers in the head. As the UNIT soldiers continue to fire on the SHIELD agents another UNIT soldier gets hit in the back and falls down dead. Mace turns around to see Lennox and his six NEST soldiers and directs two of his UNIT soldiers to the back and fires at the NEST soldiers and manages to strike one of the NEST soldiers in the head with his M4A1 Carbine. Lennox orders one of the NEST soldiers to take out the AT4 and fire at the UNIT soldiers position. The NEST soldier takes the AT4 off of his back and takes aim at the UNIT soldiers position and fires. However the UNIT soldiers warns Mace and the other UNIT soldier and all four duck down in time for the rocket to pass over and heads to the SHIELD agents position. The rocket explodes on the ground and as Fury and two of his agents survive the two near to the explosion are blown back with a bunch of shrapenel into them and die. One of the SHIELD agents fire at the NEST soldier with the AT4 and hits him with four rounds to the chest. The UNIT soldier gets back up and kills another NEST soldier as the soldier tries to drag the dead NEST soldier to safetyand then Mace orders the UNIT soldiers to fire the Stinger Missile at the NEST soldier and as the UNIT soldier stands up and hands over the Stinger to the other UNIT soldier he is shot dead with bullets from both NEST soldiers and SHIELD agents and dies. The other UNIT soldier fires his Stinger missile at the NEST soldiers, Lennox yells "INCOMING!" and while him and another NEST soldier dodge the blast the other NEST soldiers aren't as lucky and die as the explosion blows them back. Lennox gets back up and fires his ACR at the UNIT soldiers and manges to kill them both with a bullet to the chest and then to the headand tries to fire at Mace but finds himself out of ammo and takes out his Glock 17 and helps his NEST soldier up and start running to Mace's position. Fury and his last SHIELD agent se this and decide to start running to Mace's position as well but Mace sees this and first fires and kills the SHIELD agent, then turns around and fires at the NEST soldier next to Lennox. He turns around and tries to fire at Fury but soon finds out that his SIG P226 is out of ammo and so as he tries to reload both Nick Fury and William Lennox fire their Glocks at Mace and in all put 10 rounds into him before they have to reload(All UNIT soldiers are Dead). Both Lennox and Fury both reload at the same time and finish reloading at the same time and fire one bullet at each other but both have the same idea and slide to cover and thus dodge the shots. Both pop out every now and then trying to kill one another however Fury pops out and fires his Glock 19 at Lenox but as he does jumps out of cover and ducks down behind the cover Lennox is behind and as he pops out Fury grabs his hand and pulls him over the cover. Hetries to fire his Glock 19 but Lennox kicks Fury in the face and flips Fury over him and both Fury and Lennox get up and get ready for Hand-to-Hand combat. Lennox is the first to throw a punch but Fury blocks it and punches Lennox in the stomach, Lennox stumbles back and throws a kick at Fury who ducks down and kicks Lennox in the stomach. Lennox tackles Fury to the ground and begins to punch him repeatedly in the face until Fury uses his feet as leverage to get Lennox off of him. Lennox lands right next to his Glock 17 and grabs it but as he points it at Fury he sees that Fury had already grabbed his Glock 19. However as Fury is about to fire Fury hears a sound behind him and turns around to see the surviving NEST soldier who fires his M4A1 Carbine and hits Fury in the shoulder but finds himself out of ammo which gives Fury time to fire at the NEST soldier who falls down with 2 bullets in his chest. Fury then hears the click of a gun and knows that Lennox is pointing his Glock 17 at his head, Lennox pulls the trigger and puts a bullet through Fury's head. The director of SHIELD falls down dead(All SHIELD agents are dead). Lennox sighs in relief and goes over and finds the NEST soldier alive and helps him up, the two survivng NEST members yell in victory and then Lennox gets on the radio and calls for pickup.
This Battle was the closes I've had but in the end NEST won this Battle. This was due to the fact of their good balance of both Weapons and X-Factors. In the end while both UNIT and SHIELD had faced powerful foes it came down on the fact that both of those two team had to rely on help most of the time where NEST had become more powerful after their first encounter with the Decepticons. They didn't need as much help as before as thanks to the Autobots for the upgrading of their weapons, their training which helped them a lot, and the tactics they used in the field to combat their foes. They dominated in the majority of X-Factors, and had the weapon ranges of Close Range, and Long Rang #3 on their side.
Battle vs. Strategic Defense Coalition (by WraithOfWaffle)Edit
International Waters, SHIELD Helicarrier, 2016
The purr of dozens of engines fill the hallways of a high-tech aircraft, giving the otherwise silent corridors some sort of backround noise. The clicking of a pair of boots accompany the purrs, dullingly impacting the ground as their rapid pace becomes more and more frequent. A woman, dark hair and in uniform, makes her way down the hall with a tablet in hand and beads of sweat forming on her face. Her heart beats with worry, a first on the job in a long time for her but she has no time for that. She reaches her destination, the main hub of the vessel she stands in known as the Helicarrier, with a man in a trench coat standing in the middle with his arms behind his back.
"Hill, how bad is it?" Fury says looking on outside the windows of the hub.
"Fury, intel shows no survivors."
Director Nicholas Fury looks down for a moment, trying to get a grasp of the situation at hand. This may not hold the weight of New York, but those are still innocent people, soldiers wanting to help their country, dead.
"How about the package?"
"As far as we know, the cargo is still there. Exactly where it was before, somehow it wasn't even damaged in the explosion."
Fury looks back at her, his eye meeting hers for a moment. He thinks of a gameplan, who knows who could get their hands on this. HYDRA, Hammer Industries, hell maybe even another alien race who he'll have to meet again. He shouldn't have ordered that technology, that power to be sent to such a populated area. He should've let SHIELD handle it but he let the Army handle it, as an act of good faith of course after all of the shit he's had to put them through.
"Hill, I want a party of five men to go to Guam and extract that cargo back over here."
"Sure, I'll have five of our best ready to go." Hill turns around to gather the troops to go on this expedition.
"Wait." Fury turns her around and grabs her attention. "I want in."
Maria Hill looks back at the Director with a look of confusion. "Fury, you know I can't let you do that."
Fury assures "Look, I've been in this game a long time. I'm not as young as I was but I can still go... and I owe it to myself and the people who died holding that thing for us. I let them die and if I do too, well so be it." Fury walks off into the halls but Maria stops him like he did her.
"I've known you for too long, and I've trusted you for the same amount of time. Look, I know you want to feel right by doing this but it's risky. As much as I want to turn you away from this, I know I can't. I'll make sure you have the best people on the job. Just be careful, we wouldn't want you dying on us."
Fury nods at her, walking deeper into the Helicarrier.
Beijing, The People's Republic of China, The Office of the Premier
"So... Premier Chen... have you considered the proposal my men and I have given you?" Tian Zhao sits in his fatigues, glass of pricey alcohol in hands. Behind him at the door are two well dressed soldiers, stern looks and the eyes of killers on their faces. Zhao eyeballs the beverage, the ball of ice sitting in the middle of the brown elixir before making eye contact with the most powerful man in the PRC.
"It's risky. We don't want a full on crisis on our hands here and not just from them, but everyone else! We already faced that with the drone incident and on top of that have you seen the people they have? Gods with hammers, giant green monsters, super soldiers." The balding Chinese premier tried to reason with the stubborn general, but he wouldn't budge.
"So let's make our own. Let's get a scientist, irradiate him, and call him Radioactive Man." Zhao retorted, still holding the glass in his hand.
"Very funny. But my point remains, if we were to trespass on American military soil and steal whatever the hell your people want, we would basically be declaring war on them. I don't care if one of your soldiers could fight the Avengers with an empty rifle, my point remains. I refuse to sign off on any of this and if you even consider going to Guam, I'll have you executed." Chen looks back at Zhao, who takes a deep swig of the drink he was generously gifted.
"Premier, you have nothing to worry about. My men and I are going to go in and out, not even making a peep. Intel shows their use of camoflauge in their aircraft... well the SDC has been experienting with similar tech. I assure you, you have little reason to worry about the Americans finding out about our presence and where we go."
"But then they'll see their property is gone. They'll launch and investigation and it'll lead right back to us."
"And about that. We also have a way to bring it onto Chinese land without any of the Americans finding out." Zhao takes out his phone and opens a picture of a fishing ship. "That right there is going to be how we get this resource into the country. We'll package it and have a ship sail into a dock in Guangzhou, where our people will send it into a lab in the country side, deep in the land where no Westerner will find it."
Chen sweats uncertainty, he can either risk a war with a country he's already on cold feet with or let that same country take a resource that may prove valuable. He probably doesn't even know what it does, it could be energy, a weapon, but he'd rather have it in his hands than the West's.
"Alright, Zhao. Send a small party to Guam to extract the cargo and cover up the tracks by any means necessary. Be out by evening." Chen looks at Zhao and his troops, who give a nod before leaving the office.
