Looks like having a S.H.I.E.L.D. badge will open some doors for you.

Saturday's Marvel "Next Big Thing" panel at C2E2, Marvel announced five new one-shots coinciding with the 50th anniversary of its fictional spy organization S.H.I.E.L.D. The one-shots will be released in September. They are:

Mockingbird by New York Times bestselling author writer Chelsea Cain, artist unnannounced

Fury by writer David Walker, artist unnannounced

Agent May by writer Jody Houser, artist unnannounced

Quake by writers Matt Rosenberg & Patrick Kindlon, artist unnannounced

Agent Carter by writer Kathryn Immonen, artist unannounced

Editor Jon Moison said these five one-shots will be thematically tied into one another, and will both hit on S.H.I.E.L.D.'s history and set up some changes for each of the characters involved.

“For the Nick Fury story, I’ve brought in David Walker who has worked up a really fun story involving time travel and the father-son dynamic between the two Nick Furys," Moisan says. " Agent Carter’s special is going to shed some more light on her past and give some insight into her relationship with S.H.I.E.L.D. That one will be bringing Kathryn Immonen back to Peggy’s world. For Agent May’s first ever comic book, I’ve brought in a relatively new writer to Marvel, Jody Houser, who really impressed me with her work on Orphan Black and Vertigo CMYK and I’m excited to see what she brings to the Marvel Universe. The Quake issue is being brought to life by the team of Matthew Rosenberg and Patrick Kindlon to fill-in some of [her] backstory and explore her relationship with her father and previously unseen mother. Finally, New York Times-Bestselling author Chelsea Cain will be making her Marvel debut to write a truly badass Mockingbird story that I think fans will really love.”
