So, I reckon S.H.I.E.L.D. are a bunch of really clever guys who know what they’re doing when it comes to living life and protecting the world and all that. So when Nick Fury says to go south, you don’t say there’s no navigation. You use the sky, like most of humanity had done before compasses.
But no, not this guy. Not at all. He must have missed that day in class. So, how does a guy like that make it into S.H.I.E.L.D.?
This is also why I love Samuel L. Jackson. No one else could have delivered that line. It was written for him.
