[[folder:In General]]
!!Tropes fitting the other members of ComicBook/{{SHIELD}}, as well as the organization itself, include:

->Voiced By: Creator/NolanNorth - Jimmy Woo; Creator/TomKane - Jasper Sitwell

* DistressedDude / DistressedDamsel: [[spoiler: All the SHIELD agents the Skrulls replaced, including Clay Quartermain and Bobbi Morse.]]
* FunWithAcronyms: '''S'''trategic '''H'''omeland '''I'''ntervention '''E'''nforcement and '''L'''ogisitcs '''D'''ivision
* GovernmentAgencyOfFiction: It's not entirely clear if it's just the US government, though.
* KnightTemplar: SHIELD does have the official goal/intention of protecting Earth from super-related threats, but are willing to go to extreme lengths to do so. Including manufactoring their own {{Super Soldier}}s. In his first episode, Bruce Banner tries to convince Samson that the Cube's true purpose is to enable SHIELD to find a way to control the radiation-empowered crooks there, and/or replicate the gamma mutation that spawned the Hulk to create an army of similar beings for their own purposes. The flashback to Graviton's story reveals he was brought on to create super soldiers for SHIELD, was kept as a specimen by them for 10 years after turning into a GravityMaster -- and then there's the throwaway line in the same flashback that Graviton has full support in testing his experimental ideas on human beings to see if they'll work. Not to mention, if this series does share a universe with WesternAnimation/WolverineAndTheXMen, SHIELD's involvement in the whole {{Wendigo}} debacle.
* PoweredArmor: The Mandroids
* RedShirt: The agents are almost useless against any threat. Or rather, the threats they ''are'' capable of handling aren't worth calling in the Avengers over.

[[folder: Nick Fury]]

!![[NickFury Nicholas "Nick" Fury]] (Episodes 1-19)

[[quoteright:188:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Nick_Fury_EMH_6376.png]]

->'''''Captain America:''' "So, what Iron Man said... Can I trust you?"''
->'''''Nick Fury:''' "When it counts... absolutely."''

The director of S.H.I.E.L.D., Nick Fury oversaw the containment of the super-villains contained inside the Big House, Raft, Cube, and Vault. Though his primary focus is on the security of America and the world, he's more than a bit pragmatic and ruthless in his efforts - not to mention willing to get his hands dirty when it comes to developing ways to create "super soldiers" of his own. After Agent Mockingbird captures a Skrull during the destruction of HYDRA Island, Fury goes to hunt down the other Skrulls infiltrating the Earth.

->Voiced By: Alex Desert
->First appearance: "Iron Man is Born!" (Micro-Episode: "HYDRA Lives!")

* BadassNormal: Has no powers
** BadassGrandpa: After Baron Strucker uses his life draining hand on him.
* BaldOfAwesome: In Season Two.
* BodyguardBabes: In Season Two he has one with Black Widow, Mockingbird and Quake.
* TheChessmaster[=/=]ManipulativeBastard: Most evident in Season Two.
* CompositeCharacter: This version is black like his Ultimate and movie counterparts, but he bears the gray hair and wears the blue outfit of the Nick Fury from the mainstream comics.
** Nick Fury leaves for undisclosed reasons during the last episodes of season 1, and the first episodes of season 2. By the time he returns, he becomes bald and grows facial hair, like his Ultimate and movie counterparts.
* DaChief: Tries to assert himself and recruit the fledgling Avengers team in the pilot, only for them to turn him down and act on their own. But he basically fills this role in the shorts, and for the rest of SHIELD.
* EyepatchOfPower: He wears one
* EyeScream: That [[spoiler: explosion]] was a little too close for comfort. Thanks a lot, [[spoiler: Winter Soldier]].
* GoodIsNotNice: Both he and SHIELD can be counted among the good guys, but Nick and his organization can be plenty ruthless, and are willing to experiment in creating super soldiers of their own, even when such thing is clearly dangerous - as shown with Graviton, and the gamma mutants imprisoned in the cube.
%%* KnightTemplar
* LegacyCharacter: See "Strong Family Resemblance" below.
* [[spoiler:OutGambitted: by Veranke in season 2. She even lampshades it by mocking how he was beaten at his own game.]]
* PetTheDog: When he returns Captain America's old bike to him, and tells him how much of an inspiration Steve was to him and how important he was to his father.
** He's also genuinely sorry when he apologises to Wasp [[spoiler:about Hank Pym's apparent death]].
* RaceLift: As with all new media adaptations of Nick Fury. Notably, his look in season 1 still retains some of his 616 comics features (graying temples of a head full of hair), while in season 2 he's become the BaldBlackLeaderGuy that ''Ultimate Marvel'' readers and moviegoers are used to.
* RoleReprisal: From ''WesternAnimation/WolverineAndTheXMen''.
* ShadowArchetype: To ComicBook/IronMan. Both are leaders of super-level organization among other things. However Fury is really something if Stark looks moral in comparison.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: His father, Jack Fury, takes his mainstream comics' counterpart place as the leader of the WWII heroes, the Howling Commandos. Not only does he look ''a lot'' like his father, they share the same voice actor.
* WolverinePublicity: Despite going missing for 13 consecutive episodes, and not actually being an Avenger, the popularity of Fury's previous incarnations allows him to narrate the second opening aired on Creator/DisneyXD.

[[folder: Maria Hill]]
!!Maria Hill (Episodes 20-52)

[[quoteright:210:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/char_20532_145.jpg]]

->''"More and more superheroes are popping up... There has to be accountability. There are laws, and it's my job to enforce them."''

The deputy director of SHIELD. Maria Hill serves as Fury's representative on SHIELD matters, assists him in his duties, and serves as acting director when Fury himself is unavailable.

->Voiced By: Kari Wuhrer
->First appearance: "Iron Man is Born!" (Micro-Episode: "HYDRA Lives!")

* ActuallyADoombot: [[spoiler:Reveals she's been using a robot double when the Skrulls attacked her.]]
* AmbiguouslyBrown: Her ethnicity is hard to discern.
* BadassNormal: She's pretty much the only normal human that can stand face-to-face with [[KillerRobot Ultron]] without fear. [[spoiler:Until the MindProbe....]]
* DeadpanSnarker
* HeroAntagonist: She repeatedly hinders the team during the AIM/HYDRA battle and sees them as a threat although her actions are within the bounds of the law and well meaning.
* IdiotBall: You gotta wonder why, when Red Hulk shows up to attack SHIELD, she doesn't suspect it might be a conspirator attempting to frame Hulk. While her explanation for the Hulk's change of color kinda makes sense (the fact [[MythologyGag he used to be gray]] causes her to assume he might have changed color again), and Red Hulk sounds exactly like the Green one, 1) Ross came to ask her for a Hulk's blood sample a few minutes ago which makes it a strange coincidence; 2) The Avengers confirm Banner is with them and not even in his Hulk form; 3) Fury provided her with information about a ''shapeshifting'' alien invasion; With so many elements together, you'd expect her to at least consider the possibility Hulk ''might'' have been framed, but she immediately assumes it was the real Hulk and allows the Thunderbolts to arrest Banner.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: In "Alone Against AIM," she went from scolding Tony's refusal to register, to saving him from Technovore, though she later insists she only did so because her job requires her to save people from danger.
* KarmaHoudini: Maria will probably never get chastised for falsely accusing the Hulk of committing Red Hulk's rampage, since her actions inadvertently made [[spoiler:Skrull Captain America deliver an OutOfCharacterAlert]]. The joy that Ross and Dell Rusk must have felt to have Banner in captivity probably also helped her avoid chastisement.
* KnightTemplar: While not quite evil, she still fits this to a degree with her insistence that the Avengers register and her occasional stonewalling of their efforts.
* LawfulStupid: Spends more time antagonizing the Avengers than actual villains.
* PetTheDog: she refused to give away the Hulk's sample to the Hulkbusters and even took defense of Hulk and the Avengers against Ross. Doesn't last sadly.
* ShipTease: In "Alone Against AIM," Tony and Maria save each other from Technovore's attacks, and tease the thought of dating each other.
-->'''Maria:''' I saved your life because that's my job. But you, you're putting people at risk. The Avengers put people at risk.
-->'''Tony:''' ''(pause)'' So, I'm guessing dinner is out of the question.
* TookALevelInBadass: [[spoiler:She proves to have learned from Fury during the Secret Invasion story arc, as she was wise enough to prepare herself using the information he gave her. She even ends up saving him ''and'' Iron Man.]]
* TookALevelInJerkass: When first met, Hill didn't seem all that against the Avengers and came off more as just another SHIELD agent, though it could possibly be that that was because she was not yet in a position to breath down their necks like she is later.
* [[UngratefulBastard Ungrateful Bitch]]: At least until the Skrulls invade, it seems like no matter how many times the Avengers save the world, SHIELD, and/or her, she'll insist that "nothing's changed," and the heroes still need to register.
* TheWatson: Despite being Fury's second-in-command, she only found out about The Raft - which houses the most dangerous villains, including Graviton and Baron Zemo - ''a week'' before the events of "Breakout."
* WellIntentionedExtremist: That's one way of looking at her characterization. In spite of her antagonistic relationship with the Avengers, one could still argue that she's doing it for the right reasons.
* TheWorfEffect: It seems that Hill's job is to get taken out or told to stand down before Fury proceeds to do something bad-ass. [[spoiler: Fortunately corrected in the Secret Invasion Story arc, where she proves competent enough to actually ''save'' him.]]

[[folder: Black Widow]]
!!Comicbook/BlackWidow/Natasha Romanoff

[[quoteright:201:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Black_Widow_EMH_3728.png]]

Hawkeye's former partner and an elite operative for SHIELD. Also, a double agent for HYDRA. [[spoiler: Make that a triple agent for Nick Fury.]]

->Voiced By: Vanessa Marshall
->First appearance: "Hulk vs. The World" (Micro-Episode: "Hulk vs. The World")

* AdvertisedExtra[=/=]WolverinePublicity: To attract people who saw ''Film/TheAvengers'' and associate her with the team:
** The covers for Australia's Blu-Ray Discs depict her standing alongside the Avengers and Fury, despite the fact only nine total episodes have her.
** A [[http://marvel.com/news/story/19659/cast_your_vote_in_the_avengers_emh_fan_polls poll]] about the show's best Avenger included her as a choice.
** She appears on the cover of Disney's sixth DVD, regardless of the fact she has no lines in the included episodes.
* AntiHero: [[spoiler: Type IV. Although her betrayal was simply a ploy to infiltrate HYDRA the morality of her action was muddied by framing Hawkeye for treason.]]
* ActionGirl: A female SHIELD agent.
* BadassNormal: She has no superpowers.
* CombatStilettos: Her heels are part of her costume.
* CompositeCharacter: This uses the Ultimate and movie backstory of being a SHIELD operative, rather than her comic origin of being a reformed Russian supervillainess.
* DarkChick
* FaceHeelTurn
** [[spoiler: Subverted. She even becomes a frequent ally to the Avengers in the comics and series finale.]]
* HeroesWantRedheads: Clint certainly does.
* MaleGaze: The majority of the time Widow is onscreen focuses on the motions of her painstakingly animated behind.
* MotherRussiaMakesYouStrong: She uses her Russian accent when dealing with HYDRA.
* OohMeAccentsSlipping: Averted. She sounds perfectly natural when interacting with other SHIELD agents, speaking with an American accent. She only reveals her Russian accent when interacting with agents of HYDRA. Though one has to wonder why she bothers, since it's not like SHIELD doesn't know she's Russian, with a last name like Romanoff. To make it even odder, she maintains her American accent at all times in "Widow's Sting", around SHIELD and HYDRA alike.
* OutOfFocus: Majorly in season 2.
* ReverseMole: [[spoiler:For Nick Fury, not so much SHIELD]]
* SpyCatsuit: She wears form-fitting, dark purple tights.

[[folder: Doc Samson]]
!! Dr. Leonard Samson
A colleague of Bruce Banner, who sought to study and find a cure for Hulk and others affected by Gamma Radiation. Unfortunately, during the break out, he was exposed to and transformed into one of the same beings he was trying to help. Now blessed with great strength as well as a sharp intellect, he seeks to atone for his past mistakes and help stabilize the Cube, ultimately assisting the Avengers in defeating the Leader.

->Voiced By: Creator/CamClarke
->First appearance: "Hulk vs. The World" (Micro-Episode: "This Monster, This Hero")

* TheAtoner: Not so much because he did anything wrong, but he feels his blind trust in S.H.I.E.L.D. allowed the breakout to happen in the first place
* [[spoiler: FaceHeelTurn: He's working with Dell Rusk and helped create the Red Hulk]]
** [[spoiler: BrainwashedAndCrazy: The real reason he's working with Dell Rusk in the first place.]]
* GeniusBruiser: Is a scientist that gets SuperStrength.
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair Gotta Have Green Hair]]
* MeaningfulName: He has long hair and superhuman strength, just like another [[Literature/TheBible Samson]].
* NiceGuy: Despite his intimidating appearance, he is actually a very agreeable guy.
* OmnidisciplinaryScientist: He's still a psychiatrist like in the comics but now he's also an expert in Gamma Radiation and Genetic mutation.
* PowerMakesYourHairGrow: After being exposed to Gamma Radiation, his hair goes from regular length to eventually armpit length.
* SourSupporter: He still works for S.H.I.E.L.D. but is far less trusting of them and may make the leap to the Avengers once he recovers.
* SuperpowerLottery: He's pretty much the only character exposed to Gamma radiation in the series who seems to suffer no negative repercussions as a result. While every single other character undergoes some kind of disturbing transformation that comes with their powers, he gets super strength, and the only physical changes he undergoes are bodybuilder-level muscles to match and green hair, neither of which are particularly monstrous.
* TookALevelInBadass: After exposure to gamma radiation
* TheBigGuy: Considered third in line after Hulk and Thor in terms of raw physical strength.

[[quoteright:144:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mockingbird_emh.jpg]]

A SHIELD agent who once served under Hawkeye (during Clint's days with SHIELD) who stepped up to full agent after Hawkeye quit.

->Voiced by: Creator/ElizabethDaily
->First appearance: "Hulk vs. The World" (Micro-Episode: "This Monster, This Hero")

* ActionGirl: A female SHIELD agent.
* AscendedExtra: She appeared at the "Hulk" micro, as a random SHIELD agent. She's promoted to superhero when Hawkeye resigns.
* BadassNormal: Like many SHIELD agents, she has no superpowers.
* DistressedDamsel:
** When she first appeared (still as a SHIELD agent) her ship was about to crash, but Hulk saved her, at the cost of losing his chance to escape.
** [[spoiler: Also after the Skrulls captured her and replaced her with their queen, Queen Veranke.]]
* EarlyBirdCameo: She's piloting the dropship for Hawkeye and Black Widow when they go after the Hulk early on.
* LastNameBasis: Hawkeye calls her, "Morse", more often than he does her first name or codename.
* MeaningfulName: She does have ''one'' superpower... talking the ears off of people.
* NotQuiteFlight: Given height and momentum, she can glide on her wide, wing-like sleeves.
* SpinToDeflectStuff: She does this with her bo staff.
* SimpleStaff: Albeit one that can extend pretty far, and somehow ''reattach after being sliced in half''.
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Not ridiculously so or anything, but her bare legs stand out when the only other costumed ladies (Wasp, Black Widow, and Madame Hydra) have almost nothing showing. Unlike them, however, she wears a mask. Hawkeye does say he asked her to accompany him because of the costume...
* YouthfulFreckles: Visible when she doesn't wear her mask.

* [[spoiler: FaceHeelTurn: He's working with Dell Rusk and helped create the Red Hulk]]
** [[spoiler: BrainwashedAndCrazy: The real reason he's working with Dell Rusk in the first place.]]
* GeniusBruiser: Is a scientist that gets SuperStrength.
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair Gotta Have Green Hair]]
* MeaningfulName: He has long hair and superhuman strength, just like another [[Literature/TheBible Samson]].
* NiceGuy: Despite his intimidating appearance, he is actually a very agreeable guy.
* OmnidisciplinaryScientist: He's still a psychiatrist like in the comics but now he's also an expert in Gamma Radiation and Genetic mutation.
* PowerMakesYourHairGrow: After being exposed to Gamma Radiation, his hair goes from regular length to eventually armpit length.
* SourSupporter: He still works for S.H.I.E.L.D. but is far less trusting of them and may make the leap to the Avengers once he recovers.
* SuperpowerLottery: He's pretty much the only character exposed to Gamma radiation in the series who seems to suffer no negative repercussions as a result. While every single other character undergoes some kind of disturbing transformation that comes with their powers, he gets super strength, and the only physical changes he undergoes are bodybuilder-level muscles to match and green hair, neither of which are particularly monstrous.
* TookALevelInBadass: After exposure to gamma radiation
* TheBigGuy: Considered third in line after Hulk and Thor in terms of raw physical strength.

[[folder: Mockingbird]]
!!ComicBook/{{Mockingbird}}/Barbara "Bobbi" Morse

[[quoteright:144:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mockingbird_emh.jpg]]

A SHIELD agent who once served under Hawkeye (during Clint's days with SHIELD) who stepped up to full agent after Hawkeye quit.

->Voiced by: Creator/ElizabethDaily
->First appearance: "Hulk vs. The World" (Micro-Episode: "This Monster, This Hero")

* ActionGirl: A female SHIELD agent.
* AscendedExtra: She appeared at the "Hulk" micro, as a random SHIELD agent. She's promoted to superhero when Hawkeye resigns.
* BadassNormal: Like many SHIELD agents, she has no superpowers.
* DistressedDamsel:
** When she first appeared (still as a SHIELD agent) her ship was about to crash, but Hulk saved her, at the cost of losing his chance to escape.
** [[spoiler: Also after the Skrulls captured her and replaced her with their queen, Queen Veranke.]]
* EarlyBirdCameo: She's piloting the dropship for Hawkeye and Black Widow when they go after the Hulk early on.
* LastNameBasis: Hawkeye calls her, "Morse", more often than he does her first name or codename.
* MeaningfulName: She does have ''one'' superpower... talking the ears off of people.
* NotQuiteFlight: Given height and momentum, she can glide on her wide, wing-like sleeves.
* SpinToDeflectStuff: She does this with her bo staff.
* SimpleStaff: Albeit one that can extend pretty far, and somehow ''reattach after being sliced in half''.
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Not ridiculously so or anything, but her bare legs stand out when the only other costumed ladies (Wasp, Black Widow, and Madame Hydra) have almost nothing showing. Unlike them, however, she wears a mask. Hawkeye does say he asked her to accompany him because of the costume...
* YouthfulFreckles: Visible when she doesn't wear her mask.

-->'''Tony''': Cute.
* DishingOutDirt: She has the power to produce seismic waves and create earthquakes from her hands.

** [[spoiler: TookALevelInBadass: She proves to have learned from Fury during the Secret Invasion story arc, as she was GenreSavvy enough to prepare herself using the information he gave her. She even ends up saving him ''and'' Iron Man.]]

* JerkassHasAPoint: While Hill is a real jerk to the team she does have a point. No one, not even people with super powers, should be above the law. Police and military personal have authorities that they are accountable to if they cross the line or screw up. Super humans are accountable to no one. That said, SHIELD has been shown to [[KnightTemplar not exactly be the most responsible of groups]] and might not be trustworthy as far as such power goes.

* KarmaHoudini: Maria will probably never get chastised for falsely accusing the Hulk of committing Red Hulk's rampage, since her actions inadvertently made [[spoiler: Skrull Captain America deliver an OutOfCharacterAlert]]. The joy that Ross and Dell Rusk must have felt to have Banner in captivity probably also helped her avoid chastisement.
