Re: SSR ... SHIELD ...strategic homel ... wait
Since 'SHIELD' at that point was unknown to the general populace, I think Coulson used the entire name to sound more official to Pepper and Tony. Say 'Strategic Homeland...' and I'm thinking "Govt". Say 'SHIELD' and I'm thinking "huh? Bugger off".
Batgod didn't make Bren hate Batgod.
Batgod fans make Bren hate Batgod.
