Marvel Cinematic Universe is based on the incredibly Marvel Comics stories, and one of the biggest reasons behind its stupendous success is Colonel Nicholas Joseph Fury aka Nick Fury who established The Avengers. A creation of Marvel’s legendary writer/artist Jack Kirby and writer Stan Lee, Nick Fury was first seen in Sgt. Fury and his Howling Commandos #1 (May 1963). It was a war series based on the World War II that showed Fury as a cigar-chewing head of a special U.S. Army unit. Over the decades, Nick Fury has become a highly popular character, and back in 2011, IGN had ranked Nick Fury as the 33rd most popular comic book hero, and there are times that he is seen as an antihero.
The contemporary Nick Fury was originally a CIA agent, who made his comic book debut in Fantastic Four #21 in December 1963. Later he was turned into a James Bond style spy and headed the imaginary spy agency S.H.I.E.L.D. and the conduit between the US government and the numerous superheroes. It was also revealed that Nick Fury consumes a special medication named the Infinity Formula that stopped his aging and gave him the ability to remain active even at the age of almost 100 years.
The big screen version of Nick Fury has been played by star actor Samuel L. Jackson who has been a part of Marvel Cinematic Universe for almost a decade now. Jackson’s no-nonsense portrayal of Nick Fury has been loved by fans all over the world, and that is the reason why there are countless Nick Fury memes doing the rounds of the internet.
