Marvel History 205: Sgt. Fury # 13

Issue: Sgt. Fury # 13
Writer: Stan Lee
Artist: Jack Kirby
Publication Date: December 1964

Brief Summary:


Sgt_Fury_and_his_Howling_Commandos_Vol_1_13


Commentary:

Alright, finally something interesting happens in this comic.  Captain America is a savior, in more ways than one.  Fury is a little jealous of all the adoration the Cap seems to attract.  Funny how much time Fury spends upset about Captain America's costume and (super) heroics, and how the latter part of his career is spent frequently in service to heroes like Cap.  Perhaps it's because when Fury sees Cap in action, well, that's when he starts singing a different tune.

Also of note is that Fury unknowingly stands up for a young Captain America in a bar room brawl.  Kind of neat.



Favorite Panel:

Fury, Captain America, and Bucky, Marvel legends all.
