Synopsis for "Nick Fury Agent of SHIELD: The Man For the Job"Edit
Col. Nick Fury reports to the Pentagon where he is mysteriously cloned. Full of questions, he is then escorted to the streets above where the clones have been positioned to protect Fury from hidden assassins. Shoved into a car, another attack is thwarted by various spy gadgets that the car is equipped with. He is told about SHIELD and that the attacks have come from HYDRA, where the agent responsible for the failed attacks on Fury is killed by Agent H, who replaces him. At SHIELD HQ, Fury is greeted by Tony Stark, who is in charge of the Special Weaponry Section and told that he has been chosen to lead SHIELD in their mission to destroy HYDRA. At first, Fury is reluctant, but after uncovering a bomb that had been rigged to blow up him and high-ranking officials, he quickly takes control and agrees to lead SHIELD.
