The Upcoming Marvel Game Is Cutesy


Recommended Posts

I have always been the first to admit that I know diddly/squat about comic books, 

 

but even I know Shield stood for Supreme Headquarters for International Espionage, Law Enforcement Division.

 

Of course, I also knew that those words really don't make a lot of sense together, and that someone really wanted it to spell "SHIELD."

   Marvel/Disney may look cute, but everything is done for a serious financial reason.  The “D616”system is probably easier to copyright than a more generic name.

They changed it to Strategic Hazard Intervention Espionage Logistics Directorate. in 1991.   Not that they use that in the movies and TV series which started after the Department of Homeland Security became a thing.  Then there's the alternate universe where it is Saviors of Humanity by Intervention in the Evolution of Life-form Deviants.  There's no limit to how awkward a backronym can get.
