This is the only time I went away from using the first 100 issues of The Avengers as reference. I wanted to do (at least) 2 cards of the major players in the film and Nick Fury is basically a head on a monitor or guy in a t-shirt for most of his appearances (aside from the Scorpio story depicted earlier). So here I riff on Jack Kirby’s cover to Strange Tales #135 but giving him the Steranko-era uniform.
