Marvel’s Secret Invasion has become a hype for all Marvel fans since the day of its release. The reason for this is pretty genuine as well. We see the return of our beloved Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. Nick Fury, after being missing for a long time. Since his return after Thanos’s snap, there is pretty less information about where Nick Fury has been all this time or what he has been doing. So, in this article, let’s answer your question, where was Nick Fury before Secret Invasion?
Last Movie Appearance of Nick Fury
The last appearance of Nick Fury was witnessed in Tom Holland’s Spiderman: Far From Home. There we saw Mysterio, played by Jake Gyllenhaal, manipulate Peter into handing him over the E.D.I.T.H. glasses. Thus, granting him control of all the Stark tech. This was the last movie where Nick Fury appeared but the thing is, he wasn’t really Nick Fury.
Now you may ask, who was it? Well, in Far From Home, Talos, who is a Skrull and Nick’s friend, took the identity of Nick Fury. Whereas, Soren, Talos’s wife, took the identity of Agent Maria Hill. They did this to cover up the fact that Nick Fury was in space looking after the space battle station S.A.B.E.R. and helping to build it into a fully functional battle Station.
If you’re confused about who are Skrulls, well, Skrulls are shape-shifting beings in Marvel comics who can impersonate anyone and that’s how Talos was pretending to be Nick Fury in Spiderman: Far From Home. You can read more about Skrulls and their powers in the interlinked article.
Nick Fury’s Return to Secret Invasion
In the first episode of Secret Invasion, when the radical Skrulls started causing harm to people and became a serious threat, Agent Maria Hill calls upon Nick Fury to handle the situation. When Fury returns from S.A.B.E.R. we get to learn a lot about where he has been all along.
We already know that he was turned to dust in Avengers: Infinity War and was bought back after the events of Avengers: Endgame by Hulk’s snap. However, it appears that Nick Fury once again left Earth after returning and settled down on the S.A.B.E.R. space station, without telling anyone. As revealed in the first episode of Secret Invasion, he did this to cope with the trauma he suffered. Nick Fury didn’t want to be seen suffering by anyone and didn’t want to project his trauma on anything, especially his work.
As far as we can predict, after the events of the Secret Invasion, Fury will once again go back to the S.A.B.E.R. battle station since the upcoming Captain Marvel movie, The Marvels, appear to be happening after the events of Secret Invasion and takes place almost entirely in space. In the trailer itself, we see Nick Fury in the S.A.B.E.R. space station which kind of confirms our speculation.
So, now you know where Nick Fury was before Secret Invasion and where he might be seen after the events of the series.
