S.H.I.E.L.D. gets support in Edinburgh

S.H.I.E.L.D. gets support in Edinburgh
Originally uploaded by blackbeltjones.

On the Grassmarket in Edinburgh, where I was staying last week, some wag had been chalking slogans of support for S.H.I.E.L.D. – the UNCLE/NATO-alike global security organisation in the Marvel Universe.

More curiously, they also seemed to have a thing for Solomon Kane, the dour puritan-swordsman hero of Robert E. Howard‘s pen.

On visiting wikipedia to find that REH link, I spy that today is the anniversary of Virginia Dare’s birthday and hence also the disappearance of the Roanoke colony…

    The S.H.I.E.L.D. scrawlings all over Edinburgh are created by one man. A local conspiricy theorist nutjob who believes that he is Nick Fury (A S.H.I.E.L.D. agent from the Marvel Comics universe). Completely harmless, but more than a little nuts.
