Fury introducing himself

Fury sends S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Phil Coulson to question Tony Stark on the specifics of his escape from the Ten Rings. After Stark becomes Iron Man, Fury takes even more interest and gives Stark a cover story to say his bodyguard was Iron Man to keep his identity secret but Stark accepts he is Iron Man. Fury then flies out to Tony's house to tell him that he isn't the only superhero in the world and that he is putting together the Avenger Initiative but Tony refuses saying he works alone.

Stark ProblemsEdit


Fury talking with Stark


Fury debriefing Stark about the Avengers

After Tony Stark began going off the rails as the superhero Iron Man due to being drunk all the time and taking a slack attitude, Fury was concerned. When Pepper Potts was made CEO by Tony to prove a point, he needed a new assistant so Fury sent in Natasha Romanova under the alias Natalie Rushman to keep an eye on Stark and make sure he stays sober and does his job. After Natasha contacts Fury saying that Stark is vulnerable, Fury tracks him down personally to a doughnut shop where he says he wants to talk with Stark. He chastises Stark for being unresponsible saying he is creating more problems for Fury and that Stark isn't the biggest issue he has. Fury reveals that Natasha is working for him who arrives and sits down with them, Fury knowing that Stark might be dying. He gets Natasha to inject him with a syrum that temporarily cures him of his conditions. Fury then reveals Stark that Howard Stark was a founding member of S.H.I.E.L.D. and he and Anton Vanko were working on Arc Reactor technology. Howard had Anton deported because he wanted to get rich and Howard knew it would lead to a energy arms race and didn't make the technology. Fury tells Stark he is keeping an eye on him and assigns Natasha and Agent Coulson to Stark on site and sober. Fury then calls Stark to a S.H.I.E.L.D. debriefing where he says that Agent Romanoff has given him a report. It says that he is unfit for the Avenger Initiative but Fury wants him on board as a consultant. Tony says that he can't afford him but agrees

Dealing with BlonskyEdit

After the Hulk defeats Emil Blonsky after he mutated himself into the Abomination, General Ross ordered for Blonsky to be sent to Fury and S.H.I.E.L.D. for inprisonment due to his unique condition.


Fury's recruitment drive then turned to people who had been involved in a destructive incident in Puente Antiguo, New Mexico. He summoned Culver University astrophysics professor Erik Selvig, who had been closely associated with the incident, to an underground S.H.I.E.L.D. facility, and then drew the scientist's attention to a secure, portable storage case. Fury revealed a glowing cube within the case and suggested that it was a source of immense power, although nobody had been able to determine a means of tapping that power. Selvig accepted the challenge to investigate the object further.

Shortly thereafter, the World Security Council officially approved the activation of the Avenger Initiative, but ordered Fury to recruit Emil Blonsky. Unhappy with this decision, Fury put Agent Coulson on the case, who in turn scuttled the plan of recruiting Blonsky by sending Stark as an intermediary instead.

The Initiative was slowly losing traction by the time another potential recruit was found. Steven Rogers (Captain America), the world's first "superhero" had been frozen in Arctic ice since World War II, and had miraculously survived his entombment. Fury oversaw his recovery and rehabilitation, personally intercepting him when the man awoke and escaped into the heart of New York City.

With little to show for his efforts in bringing together a group of extraordinary people, Fury shelved his plan and began focusing on weaponry instead. "Phase Two", as the offshoot idea came to be called, involved re-engineering weapons technology that had emerged in the hands of HYDRA years earlier, as well as other cutting edge, or alien, technology. The Tesseract, that he'd assigned Professor Selvig to investigate, formed a significant part of this puzzle. When the Tesseract began emitting unexpected levels of gamma radiation, Fury was quick to personally take charge of the operation. The emissions proved to be a prelude to the appearance of Loki on Earth, and neither Fury, nor his personnel had the power to stop Loki escaping with the cube.

Restarting The Avenger InitiativeEdit

Desperate for a solution to the problem of Loki's possession of apparently limitless power, Fury reactivated the Avengers Initiative. He effortlessly brought Steven Rogers in and dispatched agents to call in the help of Tony Stark and Dr. Bruce Banner. In short order, Loki made his first public appearance, and was apprehended, heralding an unexpected further addition to the collection of extraordinary people when Loki's brother Thor arrived, making demands of his own for Loki's extradition.

Fury could do little to quell the rising tensions in a ship now packed with egos, and problems only escalated when some of these people uncovered his deceptions surrounding Phase Two. With arguments boiling over, Loki played his hand, and Fury and the others were caught completely off guard when the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier came under attack in a daring commando raid by Loki's soldiers. Fury returned to his post on the bridge to take command of the situation and was instrumental in warding off an assault there.

In the wake of the battle, Fury found agent Coulson mortally wounded by Loki's hand. He resolved to use Coulson's sacrifice to his advantage, exploiting it to give a "push" to Stark and Rogers. Despite the ethically questionable nature of the plan, it proved to be effective, and the men set off in pursuit of Loki shortly thereafter. The Avengers Initiative may have finally come to fruition, but Fury's role in their battle was not yet done. The World Security Council issued orders to send a nuclear missile into the vicinity of Manhattan, which Fury refused, but then overriding orders saw one fighter jet escape him after he knocked another out of action with a rocket.

The Avengers Initiative ultimately won out. Fury's defiance of the World Security Council may not have been forgotten, but his methods and actions had saved the world. He resolved to call upon the Avengers should they be needed again, and made further assurances that they would come.




  • Nick Fury's first appearance in Iron Man was as a after credits scene filmed after the rest of the Iron Man scenes were completed in secret.
