Marvel’s resident evil, secret criminal organization, HYDRA, serves as a counterpoint to the more noble S.H.I.E.L.D.
While the bad guys love to capitalize the name of their group, as far as we know, it’s not an acronym. Or at least, no writer has ever come up with a longer version. That “Y” really makes a tough job of it (at least in English), so we’re fine just letting it sit.
However, just because the letters of HYDRA aren’t initials, that doesn’t mean the baddies don’t stand for anything.
They have a full set of methods, values, and rules by which their members must live. Most of these amount to “we should be in charge, and we have ways of taking care of anyone who interferes with that.” However, it does get a little more specific than that.
Membership in HYDRA comes with a few concessions. That’s not much of a surprise considering it’s a fascist association with the small goal of total world domination.
They started out more as a comic book take on SPECTRE, the similar group from the James Bond movies.
If you were wondering, theye do have a longer name: They’re the Special Executive for Counterintelligence, Torture, Revenge, and Extortion. Doubling up on the “SP” in “Special” is kind of cheating. However, they really wanted to be ghosts, even though their symbol is an octopus. It doesn’t have to make sense.
If you want to be a part of HYDRA, though, membership comes with a bunch of regulations, most of which carry harsh penalties for violation.
