How was I downplaying old Fury's importance? I'm wondering if your reading my posts fully. Winners and losers? I'm really confused at what your getting at now. Fury Sr. still exists. He isn't going to go anywhere. Comics are always changing. I think believing you'll never see him again or he won't pop up in future events in a big way years from now seems a little naive to me.
If anything I'm recognizing that Marcus isn't replacing Fury. They can't the characters are too different. Marcus is an army ranger a field agent. A fighter a soldier. Fury Sr's role in the marvel universe is fundamentally different than what Marcus role is.
Fury isn't retired either. Guarantee he will still be around. Once again I think fans are jumping the gun on this. for crying out loud Marvel just brought Captain Marvel back.
A character who despite having inherited the title (Sorcerer Supreme, Black Panther) has never been considered as such by the conservative (pleonasm) readers and writers (and by extension, by the MU characters) and kept being less exposed than their predecessors.
Me: Please Marvel, give some spotlight to your 21th century creations instead of killing them every month.
Marvel: Avengers Arena, lol!
Classy as always, Marvel.
You had Tony, Carter, Osborn and Rogers leading S.H.I.E.L.D. Fury showed up yes..but they were actually in the role folks are complaining about.
You have Bucky and Black Widow doing the Spy thing, in solo books.
No one is mentioning that Secret Warrors was pretty much a status change/ transition for Nick.
When was the last time Nick Fury was a rookie, inexperienced S.H.I.E.L.D agent? And seriously, how does that make Marcus the same as a spy master?
If he joins the Defenders, or becomes their handler...then what?
The only thing that folks have a point is losing the infinity formula. Other then that...other characters have taken his perks.
Marcus is using a Ranger Kabar and a gun..and Steve's SS suit.
Child of the Bronze Age...the BEST age of comics!
Pull: COPRA, FBP, Kings Watch, Batman, Green Arrow, Trillium, Rat Queens, GotG.
