Depends on how SHIELD works. If it's like the CIA, then usually the Director IS the Head.
But even the Director of Central Intelligence reports to the Director of National Intelligence. And then there are various directors within the CIA like the Director of Operations, who does the every day running of things I think. So it really depends how SHIELD is set up, and what exactly Nick Fury is. Is he THE Director of SHIELD or is he just some kind of Director of Operations?
Would the very top Director of SHIELD get involved in the running of operations like Fury does?
