Hilarious S.H.I.E.L.D memos shed light on Nick Fury's typical day

The task of bringing the superhero-wrangling government agency S.H.I.E.L.D. to the big screen was one of the biggest challenges Marvel faced with The Avengers, and most fans would agree they knocked it out of the park. But how does the government agency work on an average day?

These fan-made memos, from the desk of Director Nick Fury, show it's not all fun and games when keeping Earth's Mightiest Heroes in check.

Generated by the folks over at the Memos From Fury Tumblr, these briefs tackle some of the issues that would likely arise at some point in the day-to-day happenings aboard the great helicarrier in the sky.

How do you prevent folks from playing with time-travel devices, or trying to set up Peter Parker and Mary Jane?

Threaten their lives with a memo, that's how.

You can check out five funny ones in our gallery below, but head over to Memos From Fury to see a ton more.
