May We Quote You?
“S.H.I.E.L.D. is staffed by skilled personnel, but helmed by the ultra-charismatic—and ultra-dangerous—Nick Fury, and for good reason. The game is one of epic heroes and villains, of larger-than-life characters who compete with outrageous, godlike force—not to mention Kirby Krackle! Although Fury, like Batman and [James] Bond, has no superpowers, he is clearly suprahuman: irresistible, indomitable, invincible. And Agent Coulson, with his Ruby Guiliani aplomb, is no Fury.” – artist Jim Steranko, known for his groundbreaking work with the Fury character in the 1960s, on this week’s premiere of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
