* BizarroEpisode: In the Secret Warriors ''Siege'' crossover Alex/Phobos blames the President for his father's (Ares) murder by The Sentry and proceeds to Washington to kill him. Although the President is unharmed Phobos, a child for whom Nick Fury is responsible, kills numerous Secret Service agents. No one ever mentions this again and there don't seem to be any consequences.
* HilariousInHindsight: In the series, Nick tells Captain America that he liked his 'One Man' speech so much that he stole it... flash forward to ''Agents of SHIELD'', and Nick's done just that, as in the MCU, the speech is one he made, not Steve (assuming he didn't steal it from Steve there as well, of course).
* MagnificentBastard: Both Fury and Strucker appear to be this. In the end, Fury stands alone.
