"The Man for the Job"
Featuring Nick Fury.
Nick Fury has been many things...a Sergeant in the Army, even a G-2 spy for the US Government. Even that hasn't prepared him for his latest assignment, chief of SHIELD, a top secret organization whose job it is to protect the world against greater threats, like the criminal organization HYDRA. No sooner than Fury joins and the assassination attempts begin. We see the identity of one of HYDRA's top assassins, Laura Brown. Fury is briefed by Tony Stark, who provides SHIELD all their weaponry.
First appearances of SHIELD, Life Model Decoys, and the Helicarrier.

Featuring Doctor Strange.
The ailing Ancient One has put Strange on a quest to find the enigmatic 'Eternity', and the forces of Baron Mordo, his powers augmented by Dormammu, hound him. Mordo tries to trap Strange through his pawn, Sir Baskerville, whom Strange has sought out looking for clues to the meaning of 'Eternity', but Strange is too elusive. Back in the Dark Dimension, Dormammu learns that Clea aides Doctor Strange and goes to stop the plan. 10 pages.
