This was the last issue of the original S.H.I.E.L.D. comic, and Gary Friedrich may have indeed intended it to be the real death of Nick Fury. But Marvel obviously had second thoughts, because Fury was quickly back in AVENGERS #72, with the news that only a S.H.I.E.L.D LMD had been destroyed. where have we heard that used since?
