Batman and Nick Fury



I think it is pretty cool how Marvel took their biggest WWII hero and through the plot device of "vita-rays" were able to continue to give him adventures in the present day. Like James Bond on steroids, Fury was always the ultimate in cool because not only did he have the best vehicles and weapons, he also had all the best connections. Good guy to know!

It's too bad that he is being muscled out of the on-screen Marvel Universe, but Sam Jackson is pretty cool, so I can live with his Ultimate Universe counterpart. Still, it is unfortunate that Fury's only live action appearance was performed by David Hasselhoff!

I used a Gary Frank Incredible Hulk cover as the starting point for this one. Here a a couple of Frank pages, From Supreme Power and Superman:

Wow, already up to the "N"s. U'm really enjoying this whole series. Mind if I put in a request for a Nightcrawler teamup?

Now that would be a great pairing...

Oh hey, if you want to take the Nick Fury team-up 1 step further, how about -

Batman and Bruce Wayne - Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. (From the Amalgam Comics Universe)

The only thing about those one-off characters is there is very limited artwork to use.

I hear you.

I never read it, but I see now that one of the two appearances of Bruce Wayne agent of S.H.I.E.L.D was JLX Unleashed # 1 by Phil Jiminez (!)

If you could salvage anything of value from that issue I’d love to see a Phil Jiminez Bruce Wayne vs a George Perez Batman (That JLA vs Avengers series is the first thing that pops into my head)
