Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s original team led by Agent Coulson and Melinda May have been delving into some deep alien-esque waters. With the arrival of the new "S.H.I.E.L.D. vs S.H.I.E.L.D." dilemma, there is an easy solution. (BASED ON SEASON 2)
The new "spin-off shield" group with Mockingbird (Bobbi) and Mack can focus on rebuilding S.H.I.E.L.D., heading in a new direction following the "death" of Nick Fury. They downcast Coulson for his repeated acts of alien research and discovery...
Enter S.W.O.R.D. - Sentient World Observation and Response Department, who's job is exactly that. S.W.O.R.D. basically acts as a mediator in cross-world/space negotiations. (Guardians of the Galaxy, Kree,Skrull, Nova Corps)
S.W.O.R.D. is not an OG Marvel idea, but created by none other than, Joss Whedon in 2005.
PS. Easy to include a Carol Danvers nod, between now and 2017.
This isn't based in anything other than "fan theory"... What'd you think?
