NICK FURY JR.
Raised by a single mother and living a normal life as a U.S. Army Ranger, Marcus Johnson only began using his current moniker when he discovered that his birth father was none other than legendary super-spy Nick Fury. Already a trained combat veteran with a host of covert experiences under his belt, Nick Fury Jr. claimed his birthright and started a new life in espionage, following in his old man’s footsteps as an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.
A New World
Marcus Johnson’s life used to make sense. He grew up a bright, gifted young man in Atlanta, Georgia who could have gotten a full ride to any university he wanted, but instead, he chose to enlist in the army first. After a tour in the Middle East, he got his Bachelor’s Degree in Philosophy from the University of Georgia, before enlisting again. He served in Afghanistan as a Ranger, alongside his best friend Phil “Cheese” Coulson—a man who saved his life more times than he could count. Like any soldier, he missed home, but didn’t think his mother would have to die for him to see it again…
To Johnson, his mother Nia had always been a compassionate woman; a social studies teacher with a heart as warm as her mind was sharp. But after her funeral and the subsequent attempt on his life by Orion (Victor Uvarov) and his underlings from the terrorist organization known as Leviathan, Johnson discovered that his mother had lived a different life before his birth. After having his own life saved by the one and only Captain America, Johnson uncovered Nia’s secret history as a CIA agent. With that piece of crucial information came another bombshell revelation: his father was none other than Colonel Nick Fury, the former head of S.H.I.E.L.D.
