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.

* AffirmativeActionLegacy / CanonImmigrant: ''Battle Scars'' (a ''ComicBook/FearItself'' epilogue) introduces Marcus Johnson, a black marine sucked into the world of superheroes when it was discovered he's Fury's son (by way of a black agent the original Fury dated). By the end of the event - coincidentally just as the ''Avengers'' movie premiered - he'd lost his eye, shaved his head, and all in all become Ultimate Nick Fury in the non-Ultimate verse (it's even found that his birth name is really "Nicholas Fury, Jr.").
