Some Of The Classic Monsters And How They Came To Work With S.H.I.E.L.D.

Universal monster movies… They have had a fascinating history… Starting as monsters in their own individual classic victorian horror novels that made such classic writers as, ‘Bram Stoker’ &, ‘Mary Shelley’ in to not just super famous writers, but some of the most important horror writers of all time!

With that in mind, these monsters have over the years have been making an interesting transition from classic horror movie/book villains, to heroes… And now to working for the  Agent’s of, ‘S.H.I.E.L.D’!

Now for those of you who don’t know what S.H.I.E.L.D. is, ‘S.H.I.E.L.D.’ is the name of a government organization that became famous in Marvel comics, and have since become the focus of a heavily popular show on, ‘ABC’ as well as a fixture in the MCU…

And recently some of the universal monsters and the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. have joined forces in the animated series, ‘Ultimate Spider-Man’ in the form of the, ‘Howling Commandos’! Here is what I mean!
