No Country For Old Fury

Poor Nick just can't catch a break.
I can't be the only to feel that Nick's getting the shaft big time in favor of Sam L. Fury.

And much like today, Nick can't seem to go anywhere without his past popping out to haunt him.

Really makes your head ache with all the possible alien races he's supposedly killed. If he was a DC character, they'd probably retcon him in having been responsible for blowing up Krypton or something.

I was really hoping we'd get a new Nick Fury series by Brubaker or someone outside of Original Sin to showcase what an awesome character the dude is solo. Instead he gets made into a covert agent Silver Surfer/Galactus.

sigh. At least Steranko knew who he was writing.

I want an old 70's spy Fury comic. Play it up really retro. It's worked for other books, and Fury is screaming for that kind of treatment.
They've turned him into the Galactic scapegoat.

@Dan: Well not anymore from the looks of things. Especially since Brubaker doesn't work @ Marvel anymore.

Yes, yes he did. And he made Nick a hell of a lot cooler than he every was as a Howling Commando.

@Random: Right? See above, and collect Streanko's run. Oh and Pick up the second Fury Max series from Ennis. Goo/Chuck Topley turned me onto it, and it's fucking awesome sauce to the 100th power.
True Story.

I do love a good true story. :)
I'll check it out. Thanks Mr. Morbid. You're always watching out.

You know it;)
Even though I knew it was going to happen, it still kinda sucks to know Fury's the new Watcher.
Pretty much retired Nick for real, officially sending him to the equivalent ofvan old folks home.


Maybe he got off easy after all......
