Comics: Editor-In-Chief Axel Alonso Discusses The Many Nick Fury's Of The Marvel Universe

22 December 2012 2:03 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Not too long ago, Marvel made the unusual decision to introduce a Samuel L. Jackson lookalike Nick Fury to the 616 Universe, despite the fact that the version played by the actor in their Cinematic Universe was inspired by Mark Millar and Bryan Hitch's creation from The Ultimates. The classic version of the character has meanwhile faded into the background, leaving a lot of long-time fans more than a little disgruntled. So, how do they all relate to each other and the live action take on the character who most recently appeared in The Avengers. Below is an excerpt from an interview with Comic Book Resources. Be sure to click on the link at the bottom of the page to read it in full! On a similar track, I made a list of characters that were breakout heroes in the Marvel U, starting with... are we calling him Marcus Johnson still? »

We already know that Marcus Johnson Nick Fury is keeping tabs on Cable and Nova, but it looks like Ant-Man will also be playing a big role in this October's Marvel Now! initiative. So, who exactly is behind the mask? It could be the original Hank Pym (especially now that work on the film is finally moving ahead) but it seems far more likely that it is in fact Scott Lang. He was brought back from the dead in the pages of Avengers: The Children's Crusade, while the latest hero to hold the title - Eric O'Grady - was murdered in Secret Avengers and brought back as a bad guy to spy on the team. Share your thoughts and theories in the usual place! Marvel Now!
