There have been numerous series revolving around and featuring S.H.I.E.L.D. throughout the years, including long standing features in multiple ''ComicBook/CaptainAmerica'' runs. In the 2010s, Jonathan Hickman began delving deeper into the organization's history; first in ''ComicBook/SecretWarriors'' and then in two bimonthly ''S.H.I.E.L.D.'' mini-series. [[ComicBook/{{SHIELD 2014}} S.H.I.E.L.D. series]] launched in December 2014, essentially being an in-universe version of the first season of the ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'' TV show with Agent Coulson leading a team to investigate whatever weird stuff S.H.I.E.L.D. needs investigating.

* {{RedshirtArmy}}: despite the fact that they are sometimes shown as {{MenOfSherwood}} or even {{BadassArmy}}, S.H.I.E.L.D. agent usually serve just as victims to be easily killed by any villain. Any commander will not usually really care about the losses. It sometimes seems that they do not even care about casualties when they plan their actions. Many agents or soldiers are killed in large numbers for example on board of the Hellicarriers that seem to serve mostly just so they can fall down and kill all their crew. How S.H.I.E.L.D. HR department manages to recruit anyone is a mystery.

!!The 2014 series provided examples of:

* {{Adorkable}}: In issue 2, Coulson gets into a argument with [[ComicBook/MsMarvel2014 Kamala Khan]] about super-villain weaponry. It's a draw.
* AscendedFanboy: In-universe, Coulson's been a fan of superheroes since he was a kid. Even now, he can recite the names of every member of the X-Men, and their affiliated teams and associates.
* ControlFreak: Simmons' parents are... not exactly happy about their daughter choosing a different life than the one they picked out for her, unlike her brother and sister.
* EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys: Fitz has a thing about monkeys.
* FauxHorrific: On a mission involving Doctor Strange's house, Spider-Man is horrified at the sight of the doctor's perfectly ordinary kitchen, because it has ''marble counters''.
* MeddlingParents: Simmons' parents will do ''anything'' to make sure their daughter is successful in life, and given her father is a senior executive in [[{{Megacorp}} Roxxon]], they have the power to do that, whether Simmons wants it or not.
