History

(Nick Fury/Black Widow Cyber Comic: Jungle Warfare - Part Two) - After S.H.I.E.L.D. retrieved the decades-old Gamega Bomb from the Pedro Miguel Lock of the Panama Canal, the Tyrannicals arrived and one of its members, Scarrific, shot down the S.H.I.E.L.D. transport with a missile launcher, killing all but Nick Fury, Black Widow and S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Kyle Fleming. The group then boarded their all-terrain vehicles and made their way to the S.H.I.E.L.D. transport's crash site, with the Tyrranical member Torcher warning Fury to give up the Bomb.

(Nick Fury/Black Widow Cyber Comic: Jungle Warfare - Part Three) - Instead, Fury, Black Widow and Agent Fleming escaped into the jungles with the Tyrannicals in pursuit. Eventually, the Tyrannicals caught up to Fury and the others, and Torcher set fire to the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents' path. Fury and Black Widow dove through the fire, but Fleming was hit by Paingiver's nerve-frying whip and had to be carried out by Fury. Before Fury and Black Widow could escape with Fleming, Scarrific knocked down a tree to bar their path, forcing Fury to confront the Tyrannicals face-to-face.

(Nick Fury/Black Widow Cyber Comic: Jungle Warfare - Part Four) - Nick Fury hurled the bag supposedly containing the Gamega Bomb at the Tyrannicals, who ducked away in fear of its detonation. While Fury, Black Widow and Fleming escaped further into the jungle, Torcher realized the bag Fury had hurled only contained S.H.I.E.L.D.-issue tools and not the Bomb. With the Tyrannicals briefly distracted, Fury, Black Widow and Fleming found an old smugglers' den where Fury ordered Fleming to get the Gamega Bomb linked up with the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier in hopes that the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents aboard the Helicarrier could defuse the Bomb. While Agent Fleming attempted to connect the Bomb to the Helicarrier, Fury and Black Widow double-backed and kept the Tyrannicals busy. During the fight against the Tyrannicals, Black Widow pinned Paingiver, using her whip to hit Scarrific, who hurled the bulldozer he was holding. Falling to the ground due to the neural disruption of Paingiver's whip, Scarrific was left unconscious while the bulldozer he had hurled landed on top of Paingiver. Torcher was also taken out by the Black Widow using Paingiver's whip before Black Widow helped set up the satellite link. Fleming and Fury managed to establish a link with the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier and the Gamega Bomb was disarmed. A S.H.I.E.L.D. security transport was sent in to retrieve the Tyrannicals.

Comments: Created by D. G. Chichester and Casey Jones.

The Marvel Cyber Comics were interactive comic books that were available on Marvel's website in the late 1990s-early 2000s. They have not been seen since the early 2000s and due to the rare nature of the comics, the dates in which they were published online are difficult to determine. Judging from the time frame, different art, and known dates of some of the other Cyber Comics, I believe the Nick Fury/Black Widow Cyber Comic was published sometime in early 2000.

In one panel of "Jungle Warfare" Part One, another S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, Agent Stiles, was colored as an African-American. The African-American agent was later identified throughout the rest of the Cyber Comic as Agent Kyle Fleming. Therefore, given the hairstyle of the miscolored agent, Agent Stiles must have been the Hispanic agent seen in Part One, as the miscolored agent had hair as his temples. The other two agents in Nick Fury's group had either a shaved head or shaved temples.

Agent FlemingAgent Kyle Fleming

Kyle Fleming was a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent who graduated top of his class in covert digital protocols. He accompanied Nick Fury and Black Widow on the mission to retrieve the Gamega Bomb. After S.H.I.E.L.D. had secured the Gamega Bomb, Agent Fleming asked Nick Fury if the bomb was safe inside a crate and Fury replied that it was not safe, and that was why S.H.I.E.L.D. had to retrieve it. The S.H.I.E.L.D. transport was soon shot down by Scarrific of the Tyrannicals and once the transport had crashed, Fleming reported that the Gamega Bomb had been activated by the crash and that it would detonate in less than a day. Attempting to escape the Tyrannicals, Fleming, Fury and Black Widow ventured in the Panama jungles, where Fleming was attacked by an anaconda but he was rescued by the Black Widow. The Tyrannicals soon caught up to the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents and during their escape, Fleming was hit by Paingiver's neural-disrupting whip. Weary from the attack, Fleming had to be carried away by Fury. Eventually, Fleming, Black Widow, and Fury found an abandoned smugglers' den where Fury ordered Fleming to link the Gamega Bomb with the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier in hopes that the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents aboard the Helicarrier could defuse the Bomb remotely. With a little help from Black Widow and Fury, who defeated the Tyrannicals, Agent Fleming was successfully able to link the Gamega Bomb with the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier and the Bomb was defused.

Agent StilesAgent Stiles

Stiles was a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent assigned with the S.H.I.E.L.D. group tasked with retrieving the Gamega Bomb. During the mission, Black Widow dressed in a bikini to distract the soldiers guarding the Pedro Miguel Locks of the Panama Canal. Upon seeing how the soldiers reacted, Agent Stiles questioned whether S.H.I.E.L.D. was condoning sexism by having the Black Widow dress in a bikini but Nick Fury replied that S.H.I.E.L.D. used whatever was necessary to get the job done, including "sex-pionage." After S.H.I.E.L.D. retrieved the Gamega Bomb, their transport was shot down by Scarrific of the Tyrannicals and, in the ensuing crash, Agent Stiles was killed.

Gamega BombGamega Bomb

Created in the 1970s [topical] as part of Project: Detour, a last resort against a Communist attack, the Gamega Bomb was an experimental prototype fusion bomb that was "one part Gamma Bomb" and "one part end a' the world." Designed to seal off the Panama Canal if the Cold War became violent, the Gamega Bomb was hidden in the Canal Zone until the need for it arrived. In recent years, S.H.I.E.L.D. learned of the Gamega Bomb's existence and was tasked with retrieving from the Pedro Miguel Lock of the Panama Canal before the decades-old casing of the bomb began leaking radiation. After retrieving the Bomb, S.H.I.E.L.D. prepared to leave the area only to have the retrieval team's transport shot down by the Tyrannicals. In the ensuing crash, the Gamega Bomb was armed and began counting down until detonation. S.H.I.E.L.D. managed to briefly escape the Tyrannicals until the Tyrannicals caught up and a battle ensued. Agent Fleming linked the Gamega Bomb up with the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier and Bomb was defused remotely.

PaingiverPaingiver

Paingiver was the only female member of the Tyrannicals and took pleasure in the mental suffering of others. She carried an energy-charged whip in battle. After Scarrific shot down the S.H.I.E.L.D. transport containing the Gamega Bomb, Paingiver jammed the transport's transponder signal, preventing the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier from locating the damaged transport. When the surviving S.H.I.E.L.D. agents escaped into the jungle, Paingiver accompanied the Tyrannicals in pursuing them, eventually catching up to them and hitting S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Fleming with her neural-disrupting whip. Nevertheless, the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents escaped. While Agent Fleming linked the Gamega Bomb to the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier, Fury and Black Widow went back to battle the Tyrannicals. During the fight, Black Widow pinned Paingiver and used her neural whip to take out Torcher and Scarrific. As Scarrific fell, the bulldozer he was holding was hurled at Paingiver. Black Widow swiftly moved, leaving Paingiver to be pinned underneath the falling bulldozer. Following the Tyrannicals' defeat, Paingiver was picked up with the other Tyrannicals by a S.H.I.E.L.D. security transport.

Paingiver wielded an energy-charged whip that could disrupt the nerve functions of those hit by it. She could also sense emotions in others, reveling in emotional suffering.

ScarrificScarrific

Scarrific was a member of the Tyrannicals, skilled with the use of a missile launcher. When S.H.I.E.L.D. retrieved the Gamega Bomb from the Pedro Miguel Lock of the Panama Canal, Scarrific shot down the S.H.I.E.L.D. transport. Scarrific accompanied the Tyrannicals as they pursued the escaping S.H.I.E.L.D. agents and when they caught up to them, Scarrific punched down a tree to bar the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents' path. Distracting the Tyrannicals by pretending to throw the Gamega Bomb at them, Nick Fury, Black Widow and Agent Fleming escaped to an abandoned smugglers' den, where Agent Fleming attempted to link the Gamega Bomb to the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier for defusing. The Tyrannicals caught up and Scarrific prepared to crush them by lifting a bulldozer. Black Widow and Nick Fury fought the Tyrannicals, with Black Widow pinning Paingiver and using her whip to attack Scarrific. As Scarrific fell to Paingiver's whip, he hurled the bulldozer, hitting Paingiver with it. Once the Tyrannicals were defeated, they were taken into S.H.I.E.L.D. custody.

Scarrific had superhuman strength, sufficient enough to lift a bulldozer and down a full-grown tree with one punch.

TorcherTorcher

Torcher was the leader of the Tyrannicals and was present when Scarrific shot down the S.H.I.E.L.D. transport containing the Gamega Bomb, commending Scarrific on his knack for destruction. Torcher specialized in arson. Once the transport had crashed, Torcher spoke to Nick Fury over a secure line, warning him to give up the Gamega Bomb. When Nick Fury, Black Widow and the surviving S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Fleming escaped into the jungles, the Tyrannicals pursued, with Torcher cutting off their route with a fire. After Paingiver hit Agent Fleming with her neural-disruption whip and Scarrific barred the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents' path with a knocked-down tree, Fury confronted Torcher, warning that he was the one in the fight packing a nuclear weapon. Fury then hurled his bag at the Tyrannicals, causing them to jump away in fear of the Gamega Bomb's detonation. Torcher soon realized the bag only contained tools and renewed the pursuit of the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents. Soon after, Nick Fury and Black Widow fought back against the Tyrannicals while Agent Fleming managed to get the Bomb defused. During the fight against the Tyrannicals, Black Widow subdued Torcher by hitting him with Paingiver's whip. Once the Tyrannicals were defeated, they were taken into S.H.I.E.L.D. custody.

Torcher could generate and project fire.
