THE PLAYERS...Nick Fury worked intelligence during the height of the Cold War, but recent events have led him to field work, where he violently takes out his frustrations while defending the U.S. way of life.
Failing professionally at every turn,Cobra Commander blamed “the system” for his shortcomings, so he decided to fight back through extortion and violence as head of the terrorist organization called Cobra!
THE BATTLE... Fury infiltrates Cobra’s HQ with the intention of terminating Cobra Commander. Stalking his way to Cobra Commander’s chamber, Fury’s about to ventilate the sleeping snake with his suppressed Heckler and Koch MP5—until the Commander drops from the ceiling with a 12-inch dagger! Fury gets two grazing shots off, wounding the Commander, but the sneaky serpent slices a chunk out of Fury’s hide with his blade, disarming him in the process. Switching to hand-to-hand, Fury pulverizes the Commander, thrashing him with judo, akido, karate and good ol’ fisticuffs. Cobra Commander’s about to take a permanent dirt nap—until Destro and a squad of Crimson Guardsmen enter. “Sorry, Fury. I can’t let you kill the Commander. I’m going to kill him and take over Cobra!” Before Destro can act, Zartan storms in with his Dreadnoks, guns and knives drawn. “Sorry, Destro ol’ boy. You’re already looking at the new Cobra leader!” As the rest of the Cobra hierarchy—Baroness, Serpentor, etc.— line up to kill each other off, Fury muses to himself, “I don’t have to lift a finger; these bozos’ll do all the work for me!”
