(Avengers United They Stand#2 (fb) - BTS) - Nick Fury
received a serious eye injury while gathering information on a
genocidal HYDRA plot masterminded by its aged leader, Baron Wolfgang
von Strucker, to decimate humankind and leave only HYDRA agents. Twelve
HYDRA defectors gave Fury details on how the plan would be implemented. Wary, Fury
had S.H.I.E.L.D. check over the schematics and called in the Avengers to help. The eye
injury prevented Fury from assisting in the next mission.
(Avengers United They Stand#2) - Fury briefed the
Avengers (Ant-Man, Hawkeye, Scarlet Witch, Tigra, Wasp, Wonder Man) and
their government liaison, Agent Sikorsky.
After the HYDRA plot was successfully stopped, Fury joined Ant-Man, Wasp and Sikorsky at a hospital penitentiary where von Strucker was being held. They watched the former HYDRA leader through the window as he lay conscious on life support; Fury smugly expected him to remain that way for the next two decades.
Comments: Created by Ty Templeton (writer), Jason Armstrong (pencils) and Scott Koblish (inks).
In issue 4, the Black
claims he stole his
flying car from "a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent with a bum eye back in '95"
years prior). While this seems a clear reference to Nick Fury, his
eye injury appears fresh in issue 2, which is at best several months
before issue 4, not several years. Further, Fury blames von Strucker
and HYDRA for the injury, so I'll assume the Black Knight meant someone
