* ArtEvolution - Just look at the reprint of Creator/JimSteranko's run to see the artwork gradually change from an imitation of JackKirby's style to an inspired surrealist visual magic like ''nothing'' ever attempted in mainstream comics before!

'''Nick Fury''' is an [[TheAgeless immortal]] superspy. He has been an agent (and later director) of ComicBook/{{SHIELD}}, an international security organization. He first appeared in ''"Sgt. Fury and his Howling Commandos''" #1 (May, 1963), created by Creator/StanLee and Creator/JackKirby. The HowlingCommandos series ran for 120 issues (May, 1963-July, 1974), featuring the World War II adventures of an army unit. In ''"ComicBook/FantasticFour''" vol. 1 #21 (December, 1963), an older Nick Fury appeared alive and well in the [[TheSixties 1960s]]. He was no longer with the military, instead serving as an agent of the {{CIA}}. This version of Fury next appeared in ''"Strange Tales''" #135 (August, 1965), where Fury became the leading agent of ComicBook/{{SHIELD}} and the lead of a new series. He has since served as the lead character of several series and magazines. However, the most famous version was the period with Creator/JimSteranko at the helm, that showed arty {{Surrealism}}, Op Art and graphic design sensibilities had a place in comics.

* BaldBlackLeaderGuy: Practically a given seeing that they tailored Ultimate Nick Fury from the likeness of TropeCodifier [[Creator/SamuelLJackson Samuel L. "Muthafuckin'" Jackson]]. Though there are some exceptions, as the Nick Fury in both ''WesternAnimation/TheSuperHeroSquadShow'' and ''WesternAnimation/IronManArmoredAdventures'' had hair. WordOfGod stated that ''WesternAnimation/WolverineAndTheXMen'' and ''WesternAnimation/AvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'' is set in the same universe, and the Fury of those series retains most of his 616 features save for ethnicity; funnily enough, in Season 1 of ''EMH'', Fury ends up looking like [[Film/PulpFiction Jules Winfield]] with an eyepatch! In season 2, he's shaved his head, grew a beard, and looks like Ultimate Fury.

* EyeScream: Since these versions aren't a simple EyepatchAfterTimeSkip, they tend to go into just how Fury lost his eye. Ultimate Fury lost his in the early 90s in Afghanistan, Fury Jr. lost his in the events of the ''Battle Scars'' mini that introduced him, in ''WesternAnimation/AvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'' he lost it raiding a HYDRA base, and all that the Cinematic Universe version will say is that he lost his "the last time [he] trusted someone".
