Jeffrey Mace is the latest Director of SHIELD and is presented to the public as an Inhuman with super-strength. President Matthew Ellis appointed him at the former Director Phil Coulson's recommendation to try to restore the trust of the public following the outlawing of Steve Rogers. Even though it was soon revealed that Mace was not an Inhuman, but rather his strength derives from timely injections of the formula created by Calvin Zabo (modified for both Mace's physiology and to remove the negative effects) at the behest of Glenn Talbot as part of "Project Patriot". In lieu of a qualified Inhuman candidate to be the public face of SHIELD as its Director, Talbot turned Mace into a superhuman. SHIELD agents Phil Coulson and Alphonso Mackenzie learned the truth when HYDRA mercenaries working for the Watchdogs attacked Mace and attempted to steal the formula. After this revelation, Mace decided to resign as Director but Phil Coulson persuaded him to reconsider, and to allow Coulson to call the shots for the field operations.

Biography Edit

Project Patriot Edit

Jeffrey Mace was present at the United Nations meeting in Vienna to discuss the Sokovia Accords. While trying to get to safety during the attack on the United Nations, Mace tripped and accidentally pushed a woman to safety. A photographer took a picture of this apparently heroic act. Mace was regarded as an American hero, and his attempts to deflect this praise were seen as simple modesty. However, he liked that people were treating him like the person he always wanted to be, and decided to play along with the narrative of his heroics in Vienna.Mace was eventually approached by Brigadier General Glenn Talbot to be SHIELD's new director. The organization operated from the shadows since its fall two years earlier, and was soon to be re-legitimized.

The outgoing director, Phil Coulson, recommended an enhanced person replace him to rebuild the public's trust in them following Captain America's rejection of the Sokovia Accords. Talbot could find no suitable enhanced person to replace Coulson, so he decided to make one out of Mace. Known as "Project Patriot", Talbot used a modified formula recovered from Calvin Zabo to effectively turn Mace into another super-soldier with enhanced strength and durability as long as he received a regular dose. They would pretend he was an Inhuman to explain the origin of his abilities. Mace saw this as an opportunity to be the face to end prejudice against Inhumans and agreed to Talbot's plan.
