Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Also, further proof that Shield wasn't originally meant to be much more than what they showed is that Marvel is now slightly ret-conning how long Shield has been around.
In Iron Man it was as if Shield was a newer organization and didn't even go by their acronym yet. (thus all the jokes about how long their departments name was) Now though, we have Agent Carter showing the beginnings of Shield and I'm pretty sure they'll call themselves Shield. (Mind you I could be completely off base and they still only go by their longer name, but I'm pretty sure they'll say SHIELD.) This isn't even mentioning the 'history lesson' given in Winter Soldier about how long Hydra had been secretly infiltrating Shield.
