(Not gonna lie: Before seeing Quantum of Solace, I was hoping that the then-unnamed organization that had killed Le Chiffre would turn out to be SPECTRE.)
I've never been crazy about SPECTRE. The name (an acronym for SPecial Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion) has always been a bit on-the-nose for my taste. Quantum is essentially the same thing, anyways, only with a name that isn't so juvenile.
I don't much care for the longer phrase "SPECTRE" is supposed to stand for, but I'd been hoping it could appear with "SPECTRE" just being its name, not something short for anything else.
