In a grand moment of triumph, they gathered to capture the moment. 

It's no small matter that Marvel's S.H.I.E.L.D. series has wrapped filming its pilot.  Three weeks after production began and as the show waits for a nigh-on-guaranteed approval from ABC to go to series, the core crew huddled together for one final photo from the last day of filming.  Maurissa Tancharoen was kind enough to tweet it.

In the photo are Jeph Loeb, Joss Whedon, Maurissa Tancharoen, Jed Whedon and Jeffrey Bell.  It's quite a motley team.  Hopefully, one day we'll look back at this and say this was the moment something truly great began.
