Character Corner: Wheels Within Wheels – Hickman’s S.H.I.E.L.D. and Secret Warriors
We’re continuing our look at Jonathan Hickman’s Marvel run by going all the way back to the beginning and talking about his Secret Warriors and S.H.I.E.L.D. runs. We only touch on a bit of Secret Warriors since we’ve covered that before but we’ve never talked about S.H.I.E.L.D which has its foundations laid in Secret Warriors and explains several things from Hickman’s Fantastic Four run (Ever wanted to know how Nathan Richards got time travel abilities?).
The thing to understand about S.H.I.E.L.D is that it is super ambitious and leaves a lot on the table. This is a book that involves Leonardo Da Vinci and Sir Isaac Newton being members of The Brotherhood of the Shield, a Celestial driven mad when it reads the “Quiet Math” (the solution for everything), Howard Stark and Nathan Richards being members of the Brotherhood of the SHIELD and chasing down Nikola Tesla and many many other things. It’s crazy, it’s nuts and what’s really mind blowing is, the story might not be done yet. There are many questions left unanswered and we discuss how we are starting to see evidence that we might be getting answers soon.
Take a trip down this crazy road with us as we try to get all this information out of our heads.
