More-Vember 6th (A belated one)

Marvel 30 – Day Challenge. Favourite organisation.

I found this difficult, organisations rather than teams feel sort of faceless, so after conferring with SuperSam, I decided to go with Sentient Worlds Observation Response Department or S.W.O.R.D.

First appearing in Joss Whedon’s Astonishing X-Men title, it’s led by Abigail Brand, who makes Nick Fury look sentimental in her pragmatic manipulations of others. Whilst it’s sister group S.H.I.E.L.D.’s purview is national security, S.W.O.R.D. deals with anything non-terrestrial, this can include things like the Kree, the Skrulls, the Shi’ar and singular creatures like Galactus. Other members have included the Walter Peck of Marvel, Henry Peter Gyrich, the alien Syddrenn, Lockheed the dragon and even Dr Henry McCoy, the X-Men’s very own Beast. There was a Kieron Gillen written mini-series about them which was a lot of fun, but they do their best work in the background of other titles and add a degree of flavour to the marvel universe.

SuperSam’s answer – S.H.I.E.L.D. This was mostly because it was the only one I mentioned that he had heard of. Simple enough reasoning.

Sorry this was a little late, will catch back up.
