Nick Fury Agent of Shield

War hero. Secret agent. Government stooge. Machiavellian mastermind. Washed-up antique. Ageless warrior. Man out of time. Roughneck brawler. Unyielding patriot. Intergalactic assassin.

He's even been replaced by robot duplicates more times than anyone can remember.

15 Comic Book TV Shows That Didn’t Make it to the Small Screen

nevermadecomictv

Syfy just announced their upcoming television development slate, including a new Booster Gold series. Hopefully, Booster Gold will make it past his pilot, but not all comic-to-TV adaptations do.
