That time I wrote my own Marvel Animated Dream Show

November 12, 2021

At a certain point in my career, I needed a sample to submit for an animated project. And I got some scripts from friends of mine to read and study and thought about writing a spec episode of the version of the animated Avengers that was on at the moment… but then I got this idea… and I couldn’t ignore it.

As you probably know if you have read my TV posts or follow me on social media, I am a huge Marvel/MCU fan and especially a devoted “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” fan. So I decided to take my idea, tie in the things I love most in the Marvel universe, and write an animated pilot.

Been thinking a lot about it lately… about how much I loved writing it, how much it still pleases me that it exists, even if no one is ever going to let me make it or pay me for it. I also think about how hilarious it is that I ended up using magic in it when I had gone on several rants in my writers’ room about why I have issues with magic in stories.

So I decided to post it here. If it’s your thing and you enjoy it… excellent! If it’s not or you do not enjoy it… well, I get that. I don’t love *every* Marvel thing either. Almost… but not quite.

So anyway, here is S.H.I.E.L.D. ACADEMY — as written by yours truly with all the love I have in my heart for the marvel that is MARVEL. šŸ™‚
