In Captain America: The Winter Soldier, we learn that the evil organization HYDRA has infiltrated S.H.I.E.L.D. in a vast, far-reaching conspiracy.

At one point in the film, Senator Stern (Garry Shandling) whispers, “Hail HYDRA” to S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Sitwell (Maximiliano Hernández), and even World Security Council head Alexander Pierce (Robert Redford) says the words aloud.

Naturally, the internet has had some fun with this.

It seems HYDRA’s tentacles have stretched as far as Westeros.

And Gotham City.

And into the far reaches of space.

And into the world of Walt Disney Animation…
