Day By Day


  • WayneM

    Zed as the head of SHIELD with Redline as backup… Now that’s a movie worth watching!!

    • Chris Muir

      I may have to steal that,Wayne!

      • WayneM

        Careful… Marvel is owned by Disney and they’re notoriously protective.

      • Grunt GI

        Wait…let’s think about that for a tight suit.kicking evil butt..hmmmm…as long as that pesky naked ray from June 22, 2014 doesn’t show up…that would be terrible, wouldn’t it.

        • WayneM

          Wait until after the Donald is gone and the Hildebeast is in hiding before activating that one!!

  • Kafiroon

    Now look what’s going to be towed away!

    • Spin Drift

      Can you say Diplomatic Immunity?


  • Pamela

    Zed remember to hold a pillow over your abdomen when coughing and laughing.

    • Also I forgot to mention that the patch is on the wrong eye.

      • Soroc

        Is that Zed’s dominate eye? The new index makes is very hard to find him shooting long rifles to confirm.

    • SOB

      I was just going to mention that. Good to take it back to the original though.

      • fast richard

        The original Nick Fury was the WWII Sergeant character in Sgt. Fury and his Howlin’ Commandos comic in the early sixties. I had the first issue when I was a kid. Probably lost it when we moved when I was thirteen. I don’t think he had the eye-patch yet. If they hadn’t done a few of the typical comic book character resets, he’d be in his nineties by now.

        • eon

          Fury acquired the eyepatch in STRANGE TALES # 136, the first “Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.” story. According to the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe, he was hit by a piece of shrapnel in Korea in ’51, that lodged in the left zygomatic arch, damaging the optic nerve on that side and cause 95% vision loss in the left eye.

          Yes, I’m an ex-comic book geek. And Sam and Naomi both would look amazing in S.H.I.E.L.D. battlesuits, although I see Sam more as the Black Widow.

          Jan as the Countess? Hmmm…



        • eon

          Regarding Nick’s age, see “Infinity Formula”. Note that the Widow is also a recipient of it, beginning at age 8- in 1937.



        • Arkay

          Loved SGT Fury & His Howling Commandos. Stopped buying when they went to the S.H.I.E.L.D. stuff. Don’t even appreciate what a hot mess they’ve made since – except for that mini-series Agent Carter. That was good.

    • Gideon Reed

      Exactly. Original Nicks Abba was a WWI hero, and Cauc to the bones.

      • Henry

        As were Jimmy Olsen and The Flash’s Iris. Who can keep up?

  • billf

    Wait,are we back to real time,I’m trying to keep up but the characters are changing too fast.
    As ,long as Sam and Zed are OK,I guess I’ll keep on…

  • Iconoclast

    Hope this is a temporary eye injury … isn’t that his shooting eye?

    The saddest thing about this whole sequence is the core reality of the illegals who set the events in motion. We need the fence and a robust deportation program to remove this drag on our Republic.

      @iconoclast ” The saddest thing about this whole sequence is the core reality of the illegals who set the events in motion. We need the fence and a robust deportation program to remove this drag on our Republic. ”

      Been there. beat the invaders generals on comment sites including Breitbart. Shut them up completely. i used the law they tried to beat me up with. The words did not mean what they thought they meant. see Wond vs US (1898) US Supreme Court. Then Trump used the words and we are where we are now. PLUS, Invaders, their entourages, and all descendants never gain citizenship no matter how many generations. It all depends on using the real meaning of words, and not made up Progressive opposite meanings used and at times all lights turned off to hide reality. The dicta (all not directly related to the facts of the case) in that decision is wonderful, and powerful. The words mean so much what the invaders do not want them to mean. The wall is an afterthought made necessary by enemy within not enforcing what they have duties to enforce. Around the world asymmetric armies have been used to engage in asymmetric warfare. The invaders no longer present the standard army that the respected WW2 Japanese Admiral Yamamoto said would face a gun behind every blade of grass. War colleges and think tanks now identify the asymmetric armies being used to invade Europe and the US as well as around the world as the means of battle in WW3, which is on now. Or do some now call it WW4? Anyway, it is on and very hot by the chosen means of battle.
      The republic needs to act to protect itself and others. An early act needed is removal of the various enemy within from power. The tools exist. They must be used across Western civilization and the world to ensure civilization’s survival, and not the continuance of the old means of raw power that has been gaining strength as it sees strength. There are very rough patches ahead. But paths exist to a decent future.

  • Richard McEnroe

    The original Nick Fury WAS white. Took a whole trilogy of retconning to schwarzeh him up.

    • eon

      Basically all done because Samuel L. Jackson wanted to play Nick on screen. And I have to admit he does a damned good job, especially with Scarlett Johanssen as the Black Widow.

      Now that was a piece of a casting I’d have never expected, although her role in The Black Dahlia could be defined as a forerunner of it.



      • Jeremy

        The Nick Fury in the Marvel Ultimate universe was black and was always modeled after Samuel L Jackson, which he had no problem with. When they started making the movies the Marvel Cinematic Universe was kind of a hybrid between the mainstream Marvel Universe and the Ultimate Marvel Universe so of course they were going to get Samuel L Jackson to play the part, if they could, and they were able to swing it.

      • Richard McEnroe

        Well, the black Nick Fury did predate SLJ in the Ultimates Universe. Marvel just mainstreamed him after the movie deals.

  • Ironaria

    The guy who played the colonel in Avatar would have made a much better Fury. Jackson cannot do convincing action and always just comes off as a pissy attitude.

    • Otto Didact

      +10k on both points. I, for one, never thought Jackson was such a sierra hotel actor. Denzel Washington – one of the finest actors working today. Forest Whitaker – absolutely. Andre Braugher – oh, HELL yeah! Morgan Freeman (in spite of his politics) – unquestionably. Hell, Charley Dutton can act rings around Jackson. Michael Clarke Duncan was Olivier compared to Jackson. And don’t get me started about Lawrence Fishburn. Jackson couldn’t act his way out of a wet paper bag with the aid of a blowtorch.

      I agree that Stephen Lang, the Col in “Avatar” (and, according to IMDB, already slated to reprise the role in “Avatar”s 2, 3, and 4!) and in “Terra Nova”, would have made an awesome, kick-ass Nick Fury. But this is the age of political correctness and “diversity” so of course Nick Fury became heavily melaninated.

      • H_B

        You have to add Jackson to that caveat about Morgan Freeman as well: Samuel L Jackson in 2012 – “I voted for Barack because he was black. ‘Cuz that’s why other folks vote for other people — because they look like them.” And yet i bet he’d be shocked and outraged if you called him a racist.

      • Richard McEnroe

        Idris Elba as Fury?

  • Stormhawk

    The man needs a good cigar.

  • jackdeth72

    Memo to Damon:

    Marvel and Jack Kirby’s original Sgt. Nick Fury and later, ‘Nick Fury: Agent of SHIELD was white. And made even more relevant when “Op Artist”, Jim Steranko took over the character, comic layout and format in the early 1970s.

    ABC Television kicked around the idea of having actor, Robert Culp (‘I Spy’) portray him… Until initial negotiations and projected budgets broke down.

    • Pamela

      Trancers fan eh

  • Bill G

    So the drone saw everything real-time, and they asked for and got assistance from Donny-Boy. Did Damon also contact federal authorities and get blown off? Likely. Just as likely that any report of new democrat voters coming in would be ignored.
    Before the fence, before max deportation efforts, just enforce the employment laws already on the books.
    Oh, wait, that was racist, wasn’t it?

  • Fatkid

    The original nick Fury was white. He came from Hell’s Kitchen. Samuel L. Jackson does a good job with the Fury character, but I do feel it takes away from he original series to have Fury portrayed as black. The black character in the Howlers was Gabriel Jones who was a jazz musician from New Orleans. Many of the exploits of the Jones character do not work with Fury being black. Jones interaction with Rebel Ralston (a jockey from Kentucky) is a case in point.

    I loved this comic and wished they had stayed with the original themes.

  • B Woodman

    Thank you all for refreshing the gaps of my Marvel/Nick Fury knowledge. I did remember that the original Nick Fury was white, and the Jackson casting was a bit jarring at first.
    I still have many of those comics (including some Steranko SHIELD), and need to drag them out to the light of day, re-bag and catalog them.

  • Otto Didact

    Chris, aside from any “Nick Fury” metaphor, any reason for the eye patch? Even if the eye were totally destroyed, this soon after the accident (presumably hours or at most a day) wouldn’t he still have some sort of dressing on the wound?

    • See my reply below. It may be a bit damaged, but if it’s just a patch it is to minimize movement to rest it from stress.

  • Otto Didact


  • It is good to see Zed with just an eyepatch. IF his eye was totally buggered, it would be a big ass dressing on his face. This implies to me minor/moderate damage. Not to mention, as bad ass as he is, he’d do fine shooting off hand.

    • Richard McEnroe

      Yeah, but he’s got to get his Remington 700 and Barrett traded in for left-hand bolts and extractors.

  • Alex McLean

    Less like Nick Fury and more Slade Wilson a.k.a. Deathstroke the Terminator from DC Universe.

  • Mordante

    Does anyone remember the tv movie Nick Fury:Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.? Hasselhoff as Fury. He actually looked pretty good as Fury down to the cigar. Acting wise…well you have to see him chew through a scene.
