The Marvel Universe has two Nick Furies now. The classic Nick Fury (as one played by David Haselhoff) has been transformed into some kind of cosmic entity, while the current Nick Fury heading up SHIELD is his son, and rather resembles Samuel L Jackson‘s portrayal of the character.
So there is one in the past and one in the present. Two times that seem behest by racial conflict and unrest, at least that’s how it is the the Nick Fury one-shot, published today, by David Walker and Lee Ferguson.
And the racial antagonist Hate Monger travelling from the present, to the past, taking a Nick Fury with him, and giving us the suggestion that the Hate Monger was going to use the Civil Rights riots of the sixties as a platform for his own breed of hatred in what might have been a more receptive time.
