Full Name: Nick Fury
Nationality: American

ABOUT THE SERIES

       Nick Fury is the head of S.H.I.E.L.D.
       This international spy organization, dedicated to fighting criminals and terrorists around the globe, is a UN-based group. It was originally conceived by Fury after the Second World War but he abandoned the idea when he decided the US would not go along with it. His proposal was found and presented to the UN and agreed upon. Fury, who was an agent with the CIA then, was pulled in and made its second leader sometime during the mid 60's. Originally its acronym stood for Supreme Headquarters, International Espionage, Law-Enforcement Division but that was later changed to Strategiv Hazard Intervention Espionage Logistics Directorate or sometimes Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division.
       Fury is a product of the rough urban region on New York known as Hell's Kitchen. Loving action and excitement and a good brawl or two, he is chosen by a member of the British Commandos in 1940 for a mission to Holland, before the US entered the War. He and his best friend, Red, officially joined the US army and were stationed in Hawaii when Pearl Harbor was attacked and Red was killed in that attack. Ready for a chance to get even, he jumped at the chance to be one of the US Rangers who were dubbed Commandos by Churchill. Fury was promoted to Sargeant and put in charge of an eclectic group who daring missions and successes when the odds were always against them got them the nickname of Howling Commandos.
       After the War, Fury was gravely injured by a land mine in France and nursed back to health. Upon his recovery, he became part of the OSS until it was transitioned into the CIA. He was still working for it when the Korean War broke out and he was pulled back to active duty with the Howling Commandos, this time earning a promotion to Lieutenant. By the time the conflict was over and he returned to the clandestine world, he had reached the rank of Colonel.
       After SHIELD was formed, Tony Stark, one day becoming Iron Man, approached Fury with the existance of the organization he had conceived and was offered a chance to run it. Fury agreed. For several decades, he has led, then quit, then led again then fought against then disbanded and then reconstructed SHIELD, all while growing virtually no older as a result of being a guinea pig in an Infinity Project that lets him stay the same age but forcing him to take yearly injections at a steep price.
       Fury is greatly respected by all who fight with and against him. His ascerbic manner, brusk to most who challenge him, hides a soul who truly cares about others.

       Fans of Marvel movies used to seeing Samuel L. Jackson's fantastic portrayal of Nick Fury might be a tad surprised when they open a comic and see a shave-needing white guy with a head of hair, albeit often gray streaked.
       Marvel Comics decided at the turn of the century to upgrade many of its storyline but did not want to run the risk of losing existing customers so it created what it called the Ultimate Marvel universe. Many of the characters from decades before received major rewriting. One of the most popular of these rewrites involved Nick Fury. The creators, Biran Bendis and Mike Allred, decided to use as their model the distinctive style of Samuel L. Jackson so Nick Fury became African-American but stayed just as mean and tough and no-nonsense as the other universe's Fury.

COMIC BOOKS AND GRAPHIC NOVELS

Number of Stories:116
First Appearance:1965
Last Appearance:2002

       In 1963, Stan Lee and Jack Kirby came up with the idea of a war-time bunch of soldiers able to go anywhere and fight anything and to lead this rowdy bunch of hard-hitting, hard-playing seeming misfits, they created the cigar-chomping, gravel-throated sargeant named Nick Fury. He would be in charge of this band for nearly a decade of real time in Sgt Fury and His Howling Commandos. The first issue was released in May, 1963.
       Even as the character's war of fighting Nazis during the 40s was being depicted, a more modern version of the character was shown in 1963 as a member of the CIA showing up at the Baxter Building to enlist the aid of Reed Richards in an assignment to Caribbean island nation. The fact that Fury did not seem much older, in fact looked a tad younger than he had during WWII, was not mentioned.
       It was two years later, when James Bond and the Man From U.N.C.L.E. were so popular that the Marvel Universe decided to join the spy game with its own organization, S.H.I.E.L.D. and someone was needed to head it. It was to Nick Fury that the creators turned, this time making him look even more rugged by covering his left eye in a patch, the product of a nasty accident. Though he was the leader of the agency, his comic billed him as "Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D." and while he obviously was in charge, he spent more time in the field fighting and nearly dying than he did administrating.

       The first set of stories ran in Strange Tales paired with the occult superhero Doctor Strange. Under the control of Jim Steranko who had assumed head writer/artist duties, the series took off and would evenutally get its own series for a while. As happens to so many popular characters in the Marvel Universe, Fury would eventually see his series come to an end but a steady sequence of guest star spots in other mags would follow. He would get another short run in a series and would have several mini-series made, all making sure that Nick Fury and S.H.I.E.L.D. would stay busy from then on.
       
       The comics shown here are the major one from his own various series or mini-series. His guest spots elsewhere are far too many to try to capture.

MY COMMENTS

       Strange Tales was one of my absolute favorite titles when it gave this teenaged boy both Nick Fury and Doctor Strange. Through their adventures, I could either use cool gadgets or awesome magicks to win the day. Well, they did it but I rooted for them!
       Over the years, my interest waned and waxed and the character underwent quite a few changes, some I liked and others I endured. But I always liked Fury and always will, no matter if he is white or black, bald or hirsute.
       The brief Steranko period brought the greatness to Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. When he was first made a spy, he was coarse and harsh and just a Howling Commando in a suit. Even he admitted in the first issue that though he now held the rank of Colonel, he was a "three-striper" at heart. Then Steranko took charge and suddenly the man became cool in addition to being deadly. He was Bond and Solo and any one else you mentioned but he was also himself and he was, well, cool.
       The David Hasselhoff version did not please me. The Samuel L. Jackson version blew me away.
