nick fury is arguably the greatest spy on earth as he knows many secrets that even the government dont know. he is a master marksman and combatant. he is older than most shield agents as he has lived for many decades and has served in ww2 alongsode cap and logan. even though he has no powers he makes up for this with his cunning and ferocity he has many skills in espionage, martial arts, and interrigation. he is one of the most feared and respected people in the marvel universe for his knowledge of mysterious secrets no one do not even know. even knowing identities of many heroes and villians. he is a great tracker as he can track almost anyone. he has a very calm and professional personality as he is usually stoic and hard core additude. he is easily cool under pressure as he usually the one giving orders and commands. he is a brilliant strategist maybe the most brilliant in the world. he usually is bossy and controlling as he feels he will lose his power. fury negatives is that he can sometimes come off as an enemy due to his backstabbing nature as a double agent. many people dont trust him because he will sometimes do things that arent moral or ethical. he also comes off as real shady and untrustworthy as he knows too much information and keeps it secret from even the heroes. he also has trust issues as being a secret agent u learn to never trust anyone no matter how good or legit they are. he is also half blind due to eye injury. despite these flaws he seems like a good ally to have backing u up, only problem is to always stay on his good side.
note: ok last bio before i do the new avengers members. nick fury has always been a big important part of the MU. i feel without him there would be no shield or possibly avengers. he is the one who keeps marvel universe in check and is pretty much like a combination of agent k from mib and snake from metal gear. do not get confrused with samuel jackson's as that version is more similar to earth 1610 or the ultimate marvel universe. this is the earth 616 nick fury the og version the legend. sam did phenominal as fury and played him extremely well. however that does not even compare how great nick fury was as a character all around. he is definately marvel's answer to 007.
Nicholas Joseph fury aka nick fury director and commander of shield - fanmade birth date (classified! " but somewhere in the 1920s") The eldest of three children, Nicholas Joseph Fury grew up in Depression-era New York City with his brother Jacob and sister Dawn. Fury's mother died while he was very young and his father Jack Fury, an American pilot who joined the British war effort during World War I, remarried and the children were raised by his stepmother in lieu of Jack Fury's own early death. It wouldn't be until Nick Fury became a soldier himself overseas that he would learn of his father's military service. Living in the tough streets of Hell's Kitchen, Fury soon became fast friends with Red Hargrove, whom he helped keep out of trouble. Fury himself was no stranger to trouble, but more than often confined it to the boxing ring where he would bout, or in the Police Athletic League where he became one of the finest marksman.
Nick Fury and Hargrove caught the eye of Lt. "Happy Sam" Sawyer who enlisted them for a special mission in Holland. On this mission Fury made the acquaintance of his future life-long friend, the circus strongman Timothy "Dum Dum" Dugan. Seeing the Nazi menace firsthand, Hargrove was moved to say he would enlist, and Fury said he would follow him. However Fury didn't enlist until 1941, where he received nine weeks of basic training at Fort Dix without Red Hargrove, hoping to ride out the wave of unemployment in the States. Eventually Fury reunited with Hargrove, both getting stationed at Pearl Harbor.
Following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, Fury was spurred on by the death of Hargrove during the attack to join the U.S. Rangers, and was eventually recruited and reunited with Captain Sawyer who assigned him command of the First Attack Squad; aka the "Howling Commandos," a specially-trained band of soldiers who undertook some of the most dangerous missions of the war. Together with Dum Dum Dugan as his second in command, Fury led Gabe Jones, Robert "Reb" Ralston, Dino Manelli, Izzy Cohen and Jonathan Juniper, as well as their later additions Percival Pinkerton and Eric Koenig against the likes of Red Skull, Baron Heinrich Zemo, and other Axis villains, fighting alongside such war heroes as Captain America and Bucky. As leader of the Howling Commandos, Fury struck blow after blow against the Nazis and their allies through missions that ranged from deep infiltration missions behind enemy lines to undercover work and even some home front action. It was during one of these missions that he first met Reed Richards who would go on to become Mister Fantastic, leader of the Fantastic Four.
During the war, Fury also first crossed paths with his most dangerous foe, Baron Wolfgang Von Strucker. Strucker's humiliating defeats at the hands of Fury would drive Strucker to devote a lifetime seeking revenge. Among the formative events during this period of his life included the friendships made with Dum Dum Dugan and Gabe Jones (both of whom would follow him into S.H.I.E.L.D.), and fighting alongside fellow war hero Captain America. Also during the war, Fury met Lady Pamela Hawley, who would become his first (and some say only true) love. Tragically she died before Fury was able to propose marriage to her. During his relationship with Hawley, they crossed paths with Doctor Strange in a taste of his future strange and extraordinary adventures. During the war Fury and his Commandos faced super-powered menaces that included vampires and other-dimensional beings.
