  • Continuity Notes
  • Appearances by Dum Dum Dugan
  • Fury also appeared in the similar Strange Tales Marvel Select oneshot

Classy oneshot celebrates the history of the classic 60's title with a reunion of old buddies Cap, Iron Man, and of course Nick Fury (and Dum Dum). The painted art is excellent and the story serves as a great spotlight for the friendship between this trio of men. Fury's manner of employing Iron Man and Cap is underhanded but thankfully unmanipulative or cruel as has been sometimes the case in the past. Fury has some good moments, especially his recruiting the heroes and the finale where his courage inspires Stark to press on.
