Why don’t we know about the first super heroes of the Marvel Universe? Leonardo Da Vinci, Imhotep, Sir Issac Newton, Nostradamus and Galileo are among the members of the Brotherhood of the Shield and have saved us all countless times. What events did they set in motion that still affect the Marvel U today? Do not miss the book that will be talked about for the next ten years.

1956: In a strange dungeon, Nostradamus is fed a powerful liquid that keeps him alive. The ground shakes and he says change is here now.

Leonardo DaVinci talks to Leonid and asks him about his childhood. Touching Leonid, a massive energy surges through him. He remembers monstrous aliens (the Deviants), a blank book, and being held by a glowing Michelangelo and lastly his father (Nikola Tesla) and a white-haired lady.

Leonardo describes coming through a hole in spacetime to get to the city, which he reveals he built. Flying over the city on a large platform, they hear an explosion and feel the same shaking of the ground.

Howard and Nathaniel are fighting Nikola Tesla. Howard assembles a strange rod device which releases a disc of energy that busts through Nikola’s midriff, revealing a strange quantum energy device. Just before it overloads, Nathaniel leaps to touch it, when he, Howard, Nikola and the dove are transported through time. This causes the explosion the others felt.

I Don't Fully Understand, But I Love It! 0

Plot & Action: Marvel's latest hotshot writer, Jonathan Hickman, is really shooting for the stars here. "S.H.I.E.L.D." is a very high-concept, thought-provoking series. There's a good amount of action and progression here in the second issue. With a bi-monthly release, Hickman can't afford to deliver an unexciting issue since it'll kill the buzz easily. It took me a few reads to figure out what is going on. Some people will be frustrated by that, but it's okay. You're supposed to chew on it ...
