N is for…Nick Fury
Nick Fury, as played by Samuel L. Jackson in the recent Marvel movies is one of the best revisions of a character in comic book history.
He's always been tough, and had the eye patch, though he used to look more like J. Jonah Jamison in tights, down to the half-eaten cigar and white wings in his hair. He's a hard man to pin down. He's a soldier, a spy, a mercenary, a hero and an anti-hero, all rolled into one man.

There are sacrifices he's willing to make, to protect his vision of right. Careful. You might be one of them.

I was so happy when Jackson got the role. No one does dangerous like Jackson. The writers really got the "wheels within wheels" intrigue of the character, and Jackson understood the manipulative nature of the man, whom we hope is still on the side of right in his heart.

  6. Jackson does indeed do Fury really well - the Hoff was not so iconic in the role, I think :)
