Most newcomers to the Marvel Comics universe know Nick Fury only thru his portrayals by Samuel L. Jackson in films like IRON MAN. Long-time comic fans, tho, know Nick from his first appearances in the early 60s, in such titles as STRANGE TALES (his modern adventures as head honcho of SHIELD), and SGT.
