Nick Fury Agent of SHIELD #7-10 (1990): Chaos Serpent

SHIELD is struggling to regain power and relevance, as evidenced by the fact that it takes them four issues to defeat a cult leader who never appears again.  Perhaps someone should teach Nick Fury about branding; in the panel above, their acronym is changed for at least the third time in history.  Despite being re-formed at the United Nations, “I” is no longer for “International.”  Now SHIELD stands for Strategy Hazard Intervention Espionage Logistics Directorate.

It doesn’t make a lot of sense.

If you like your comics with heavy (and heavy handed) amounts of international intrigue, this story is for you.  If you don’t, and I don’t, you’ll skip this.  I confess to skimming pretty fast.
