Simmons calls their mission a "Journey into Mystery," which was the title of the comic that debuted The Mighty Thor. The character was so popular, the book was eventually renamed for him.
In the 1960's in the early days of the Marvel Comics Universe, "Lola" style flying cars were often seen in S.H.I.E.L.D. related issues. This is why Coulson said "People tend to confuse the words "new" and "improved"."
The aircraft and team are referred to as "SHIELD 6-1-6". In Marvel Comics continuity, the baseline universe is referred to as Earth-616.
There is a reference to Project Pegasus. In the Marvel Comics Universe, Project Pegasus (Potential Energy Group/Alternate Sources/United States) is a secret US research project into alternative energy sources and a containment program for various arrested supervillains. It was referenced in The Avengers (2012) via signage in the bunker housing the Tesseract.
During the 15 day shooting schedule for the pilot, a splinter unit traveled to Paris, France to film part of Agent Ward's introduction. They had one day to prepare, one day to film and one day to return.
All of Cobie Smulders's scenes were filmed on the final day of production for the pilot (February 11, 2013) to accommodate her shooting schedule for How I Met Your Mother (2005).
The S.H.I.E.L.D agent to whom Agent Hill entrusts a Chitauri artifact wears the name-tag Skadden, Kirk. The same name appears in a newspaper's obituary notice in Runaways: Gimmie Shelter (2018).
