RUMOUR: After The Death Of Wolverine… The Death Of Nick Fury?

Nick_Fury_(Earth-8351)September is bringing what we have been hyped to believe as the Death of Wolverine (which we first ran as a rumour way back)

And now here comes another rumour. And the reason the old Nick Fury is being revived for the Original Sin series.

Because, the rumour spinning out of the current Marvel Editorial Retreat is that Marvel Comics are planning for Nick Fury to be killed off. Leaving his son, Nick Fury Jr as… Nick Fury. Who also happens to look a little more like Samuel Jackson.

This also follows the pattern of a sudden push for a  character they hid for so long while trying to establish replacement figures, as they did with Professor Xavier in AvX.

Strange how eyepatches are genetic.
