Director no more, Nick Fury is a plain ol' Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. - but that won't stop him from calling the shots! And there are plenty to be fired, because Baron Strucker has a new vision for Hydra...and S.H.I.E.L.D. As Strucker strikes and Fury faces treachery and betrayal from within his own ranks, he reunites with the Howling Commandos and Captain America - as well as a few faces he never thought he'd see again! And it all builds to a cataclysmic confrontation with Hydra that will usher in a whole new era for S.H.I.E.L.D. - and reveal the group's definitive secret origin! Plus: Nick crosses paths with Luke Cage, investigates a murder and flashes back to the Cold War. But how does a decades-old adventure affect the here and now? Collecting NICK FURY, AGENT OF S.H.I.E.L.D. (1989) #36-47 and FURY (1994) #1.
