There is however another noteworthy character, and while he may not be “super”, has always played an essential role in the MCU Saga.

It is none other than Nick Fury played by Samuel L. Jackson. Fury’s first appearance in the MCU was in the first Iron Man movie, which was the beginning of the MCU saga.

With the recent release of the new Marvel series, Secret Invasion which centres around Fury, there is no time like right now to get to know him a little better.

With the help of the World Security Council, Fury oversaw the Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division (S.H.I.E.L.D.), where he dealt with a considerable increase of enhanced people, risky advanced technology, and alien contact.

If you have seen the first Avengers movie, then you would remember how Fury brought the first six avengers together as a team to defeat Loki and his army of Chitahuri. The idea to form a group of superheroes came to him after meeting with Captain Marvel a.k.a Carol Danvers.

Following his encounter with Captain Marvel, Fury concluded that Earth’s resources, even in the face of interplanetary threats, were insufficient to protect the world. To safeguard everyone, he founded the “Avengers Initiative,” formerly known as the “Protector Initiative,” a group made up of the strongest heroes on earth.

He was also responsible in recruiting Captain America for Avengers. This can be seen in the famous gym post-credit scene in Captain America: First Avenger.

Best Agent And Friend Maria Hill

If you have followed the Marvel Saga, then you would know that Maria Hill has always been a constant character in Fury’s life. She served as S.H.I.E.L.D.’s former Deputy Director and Commander before Fury made her his right-hand woman.

In addition, when Fury was attacked by HYDRA, Hill helped Fury disappear by successfully faking his death. She then collaborated with Captain America, Black Widow, and Falcon to reveal HYDRA’s presence and put an end to Project Insight.

She is one of his best agents because of her persistent loyalty, reliability, and shared commitment to their cause. She regularly exhibits a profound comprehension of Fury’s intents, ideas, and motivations as his buddy.

Fury’s confidence has been betrayed numerous times, most notably by Alexander Pierce, a fellow soldier whose revelation of his actual allegiance as a Hydra spy dealt him a fatal blow.

An assassination attempt against Fury was carried out under Pierce’s direction. Fury’s fortitude demonstrates that even in the face of betrayal, he continues to be a powerful force to be reckoned with in a world rife with treachery.

How The Eye-Patch Began

One would remember Fury’s famous quote in the Avengers where he said: “Last time I trusted someone, I lost an eye.”

Fury’s black leather eye patch has always been a mystery since his appearance in the MCU. Fans have conjectured and theorised about the backstory for years. In the 2019 film Captain Marvel, it was made clear that Fury lost his eye because of an unanticipated injury from Goose, a Flerken, an alien species Mar-Vell brought to Earth.

From an article by Marvel, it was said that Fury is a master of all combat tactics, strategies, and scenarios, and he is not afraid to get his hands dirty. His knowledge of weapons ranges from lighter, more portable weapons like the Smith & Wesson M&P handgun he often carries to far bigger weapons like missile launchers.

He maintains composure in combat, although he can become harsh when dealing with agents that he perceives as being disruptive or disobedient. Those who know Fury best describe him as a fine man, yet one who is frequently compromised by his unwavering devotion and sense of responsibility.
