He’s a man who get the job done, but most of the time, the method he uses borders on the illegal and immoral side. Created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby for Sgt Fury and his Howling Commandos #1 (1963), a book trying to keep the soldier fad of the time running, Nick Fury was a soldier in WW2 who was the leader of a First Attack Squad known as the Howling Commando, alongside Dum Dum Dugan and other soldiers who would become the core members of SHIELD. After the war, he was given the Infinity Formula, which boasted his strength and caused him to age slower. After a time with the CIA, he was asked to help run a new agency known as SHIELD.
After that he became the commander, he began working with many heroes to help protect the world. However, where he differs from heroes is that he is willing to do anything to complete the mission, including killing, false imprisonment or illegal entry into a country. During the Original Sin storyline, it was revealed that Nick Fury mightn’t have been doing any of the work but instead was using highly advance LMD to work on Earth, while he keep the universe safe from evils that heroes didn’t know about.
As for figures, let’s be honest, when you think of Nick Fury, you think of him in his SHIELD uniform. Fury wouldn’t really ever get a figure that’s not that, except for maybe the Unseen version and Scorpio (but that one would be more for his brother then Nick himself).
Recommend Figure: Hasbro Marvel Legends Civil War Giant-man Wave Nick Fury (with Dirk Anger and SHIELD Agent swapable heads)
