The Abandoned An’ Forsaked – The Nick Fury Who Died Was Not an LMD…Okay, Yeah, He Was an LMD

Every Saturday, we will be examining comic book stories and ideas that were not only abandoned, but also had the stories/plots specifically “overturned” by a later writer (as if they were a legal precedent). Click here for an archive of all the previous editions of The Abandoned An’ Forsaked. Feel free to e-mail me at bcronin@comicbookresources.com if you have any suggestions for future editions of this feature.

Today we look at the hilarious “death” of Nick Fury.

Enjoy!

So during the mid-1990s, Marvel split their comics into four or five groups. The problem was that they had a few titles that really did not fit into ANY group. Hulk, Daredevil, Ghost Rider, Punisher – they were not Avengers, they were not X-Men, they were not Spider-Man characters (the New Warriors, for instance, became a Spider-Man related title so that they could fit into that group). So Marvel just gave them their own group – Marvel Edge. And then they had a crossover between these characters that really have nothing in common. The crossover dealt with the Punisher being convinced that Nick Fury killed his family (Punisher was mind-altered and controlled by some folks who were trying to get Fury out of the way so that they could take over SHIELD).

In the final part of the story, Punisher learns of the existence of Fury’s Life Model Decoys…

He then destroys all of Fury’s Life Model Decoys…

And then kills Fury at the end of the issue…

In the Incredible Hulk, Peter David has some fun with the death of Nick Fury…

Before highlighting that Fury was, indeed, dead…

Note Iron Man’s presence at the funeral. That’s important.
