I always kind of felt that people were more so doing a version of the Ultimate Marvel Nick Fury than trying to make him distinctly his own guy. -- James Robinson

Though oddly this reminds me of the early-early days of the Ultimate Nick Fury, where he was still black but more of a James Bond figure than a Samuel L Jackson type.

Wasn't this Nick introduced before the recent Secret Wars?

If so... huh. Probably would have saved them a whole lot of trouble to just wait for that and import Ultimate Nick.

It's well established by this point that current marvel administration doesn't think very far ahead.

Would have made more sense than importing Miles into the MU.

Well he isn't really his own guy... he's an example of Marvel's brand synergy taken to the extreme. Brevoort basically admitted the only reason he exists was because Samuel L. Fury was appearing in the different cartoons and movies and they wanted a more consistent brand so they got rid of a classic Stan Lee character and replaced him with this guy.

You know, I'dve been happy if they DID replace him, but they didn't do that. They inserted him. He's basically the worst of both worlds: he's meant to remind you of the movie Nick Fury, who is in turn based on the Ultimate version, but is actually neither of those characters. It is one of those cases where I am genuinely baffled as to who they're doing it for.

Kids who know him from the Ultimate Spiderman cartoon will be thinking of the movie version or that version...of which this one doesn't match at all. Those familiar with the Ultimate version (who became too much of a bastard to be still usable, IMHO) will likewise not recognize this character. As much as I liked the original Nick Fury, he hasn't really had a big run since WWII and spy comics had their day. He's been a major secondary character appearing all over the other people's books. And he's been handily replaced repeatedly. He hasn't ever really held his own book for any length of time other than a brief stint in the early 90s, and that was a group book. He's had a ton of limited series, I guess. So I don't find it hard to see him replaced, since now you have someone like Tony Stark or Maria Hill to fulfill the role as needed.

Turning Nick into 'the Unseen' or whatever nonsense was done there is just dumb, too.

Its very easy to accept Miles as "another" Spider man, because he's his own person, with his own background, storyline , etc. He can co exist with Peter, IMO.

This hodge podge morass is trying so very hard to be the Steranko fury from the 60's ,but its not. Because this is not this that Nick fury. and they can't erase him. God knows they tried, but he is still a big part of the MU. Ulitmate Fury would have been a better bet than Ultimate Fury lite and "son of " mashed together.
