Is it possible that Howard Stark helped to found a small town in Oregon called EUREKA?



After reading this unique CAPTAIN AMERICA/EUREKA crossover story online (, watching CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER (2011) (, and finding out that Howard Stark (, was a member, alongside Nathaniel Richards ( – Reed Richards’s (Mister Fantastic of the Fantastic Four) father), of a secret order known as the Brotherhood of The Shield ( and, I am left with four questions:

  1. Is it possible that Howard Stark secretly helped Trevor Grant (, Albert Einstein (, and Vannevar Bush (, the head of the OSRD (, secure funding for the Eureka Charter (
  2. Did Howard Stark’s involvement with the Brotherhood of The Shield lead to the reorganization of the U.S. wartime agency known as the Strategic Scientific Reserve ( into the post-wartime intelligence and law enforcement agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D. ( after World War 2, as well as to the formation of the protective service unit that guards Warehouse 13 (
  3. If Howard Stark was a founder of the town of Eureka, Oregon, is this revelation the reason why the existence of the (deceased?) former Director of Operations at Global Dynamics (, Nathan Stark (, Howard’s first son from a previous relationship, and the older half-brother of Anthony Stark (, was kept secret until recently?
  4. And finally, if there are any ties between Global Dynamics and Stark Industries, what are they?

  1. I like this crossover idea a lot. I think Stark Industries and Global Dynamics have similar qualities as well and Nathan and Tony share a character resemblence in both looks and attitude. I think a story set in this crossover universe could work well.

      I’m glad that you like this theory, Michelle! 🙂

      I have had my suspicions about Eureka’s link to the Iron Man section of the Marvel Universe for a while. Especially, having a Stark in charge of the main research and development conglomerate in a town created for geniuses. IRON MAN, IRON MAN 2, CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER, and the recent S.H.I.E.L.D. comic book series (2010-present, that is, unfortunately, on hiatus as of Volume 2, issue #4) allowed me to bring in WAREHOUSE 13 with the subject matter in that series.

      I look forward to expanding more on this theory.

      Thank you for your feedback. 🙂
