↳ ultimates character bios : 01/06 : General Nicholas Joseph “Nick” Fury
- debuted in Ultimate Marvel Team-Up #5 (2001)
- created by Brian Michael Bendis and Mike Allred
- in 2002 Mark Mllar and Bryan Hitch redesigned the character to resemble Samuel L. Jackson
- Jackson was unaware of the redesign but after seeing the character he contacted Marvel to secure the role of Fury in all future movies
Fury fought for the U.S. during World War II. Arrested by military police during a looting attempt, he was chosen as the next test subject for the U.S. government’s Project: Rebirth. The serum not only gave Fury low level super-human strength and agility but has also reduced his aging, allowing him to remain active despite being nearly 80 years old at the start of The Ultimates.
Fury serves for years in the military, and eventually becomes the Director of SHIELD. SHIELD’s main priority at the start of The Ultimates is the resurrection of the super-soldier program as well as creating a task force to combat posthuman threats.
Fury acted as the commander of the Ultimates, sharing active field leadership with Captain America. He is a shrewd tactician and strategist, and an excellent combatant.
Fury, much like his 616 counterpart, has been shown to be rather morally ambiguous and is willing to resort to underhanded tactics in order to achieve his goals. He is a staunch patriot, but he believes that it is in the best interest of the United States if he is head of SHIELD.
