Fury Max is Garth Ennis’s take on Nick Fury as a Cold Warrior, trading in his jet pack and blue bodysuit for extrajudicial killings and murky political maneuverings. Fighting the Viet Cong instead of Hydra, and working for the CIA instead of SHIELD, this version of Nick Fury is more realpolitik than superhero. Major Spoilers has the review of Fury Max #9 so you can decide if this gritty tale of a real-world cigar-chomping one-eyed spy is for you. Plus: bonus Frank Castle!
Recently, Marvel Comics has gone to great lengths to deliver an in-universe 616 version of Nick Fury that resembles the one seen in the movies (i.e., looking like Samuel L. Jackson instead of Napoleon Solo.) The only real carry-over between the two characters is Nick’s eyepatch, which got me thinking about the visual cues that make a character who they are. Batman’s 1990’s Azrael variant doesn’t say Batman to me, even with the cowl ears, but the all-black variant does, because it keeps the scalloped gloves from the original design, a key indicator of “Batman” for my eye. Even The
Cage’s Avengers have started to come into their own as a group, but can the team handle a mortally wounded Mockingbird on their first real mission together? Also, what was Fury putting together back in the late 1950’s? Find out after the jump.
