or i guess they could have given the SHIELD directorship to John Wraith
I think if they would have just called him Marcus Fury it would have been fine. Calling him Nick Fury Jr just comes off as dumb and lazy. We get it Marvel you wanted a black Nick Fury, but man this was a lame way to do it.
I just want Marvel to do something with this guy! He could very well be an interesting character. It would be interesting seeing the MU through the eyes of relatively normal people who were more or less forced into the super-hero side of things. It could be very interesting! But we'll probably not even going to see much of him! He'll probably be here for a few years and then never seen again.
Hmmm....I just dont know what to think. I mean, i get it that they want there to be some connection to movie goers but...i frankly think this was pretty stupid
Read Comics. Be Happy.
I thought the reveal of "Cheese" as Agent Coulson was well done. He'd been a fun character throughout, so having him both save the day and get to stick around was a nice touch.
As far as Marcus's story goes, I guess it'll depend on where they go with him from here. I really hope Marvel finds some way to keep him distinct from the other Nick Furys, new name and new appearance notwithstanding.
So what was the point of Battle Scars? Some Ranger appears at a funeral because his mother was assassinated to bring him out in the open? Marcus Johnson was in the dark his whole life, not knowing he was related to a legend of the MU. It was like one of those sleeper cell stories, going on in CW:Frontline and Winter Soldier. You don't know they're out there, but now and then, Marvel will pop one of these guys out unexpectedly.
The only connection to Fear Itself, to my mind, is this event dredged Marcus out of his embedding. If it wasn't for FI, Marcus would still be a Ranger and wouldn't know he was Fury's legitimate son. More accurately, if it wasn't for Hickmans Secret Warriors, and Fury killing so many of Orions lives, Marcus would still be invisible.
something happened in texas and cities south of dallas didn't get comics, so i didn't get to pick this issue up. from what i've read, i can piece together what happened with marcus, but what happened with nick fury sr.?
I guess I enjoyed this issue. There just didn't seem to be any suspense or anything though, but it managed to get to the ending well enough. Overall I wish the series had paired up father and son from the beginning instead of what now just seems to be three issues of filler. I like the characters of Nick Jr and Coulson, but they missed out on making the passing of the torch more impactful.
Well looks like Grifter Hawkeye is not alone. This new Nick I shall dub him "Movie tie in Fury" for he is just that, a tie in to the Avengers movie. With no real character other than Marvel wants a Sam Jackson in the 616.
Once in awhile there comes a limited series. That make me love Marvel all over again.
This is that series.

Regardless of any of the Marcus Johnson controversy, I thought this story was overall bland. It was trying to hit certain beats without real flow.
I don't really care that Marvel wanted a black Fury. But why would he go by Nick Fury when he's been Marcus his whole life?
It just didn't feel natural. It's kind of like a video game tie-in. It tries to get out by the time the movie comes out, but isn't given enough time to truly incubate. That's what this felt like.
