I've got a question about Nick Fury. In Nextwave, he was supposed to be Dirk Anger, but Marvel didn't want him in that because apparently they had big plans for him. Today I learned that The Filth was originally pitched to Marvel by Grant Morrison to be a Nick Fury story, which he eventually turned into the Vertigo series. Now, I'm wondering, why is Marvel so protective of Nick Fury (protective is the only way I can describe it), and why don't they give him his own series again? It seems like Nick Fury would have made an interesting alternative to Dirk Anger or Greg Feely....Also, does anyone know what Morrison's original Nick Fury plans were for The Filth? What would The Filth be like if was a Nick Fury story? I can't really picture Nick Fury as being obsessed with cats and pornography, but maybe that's why Marvel turned it down? It doesn't look like there are any big plans for Nick Fury in the mainstream Marvel universe....

Well Fury has been in hiding in the 616 universe so I'm guessing they have big plans for him

Nick Fury would be stupid in Nextwave and his solo books never sell.

Is his appearance in the newest Captain America the first time he's been shwon on panel since Secret War?

It just seemed like Marvel missed a lot of cool opportunities. Nextwave wasn't even canon.

maybe it's because he's shaving his head and working on a tan to come back more like Ultimate fury

Nextwave is the only thing in 616 continuity.

:lol:


Straight from the Internet Jesus himself.



And Langsta, if you don't think Marvel doesn't have any big plans for Fury....you're not reading Avengers or Captain America are you? Because if you were....you'd know that when he returns....it's gonna be big!
