Signs Nick Fury has always been a skull in disguise


Nick Fury is an extremely important character in the MCU and will be explored in more detail. However, what if we told you that he was always a Skrull in disguise? The Skrulls are a race of shape-shifting aliens who will appear in the upcoming MCU project known as Secret Invasion. They slowly took over the roles of several notable superheroes in an effort to infiltrate Earth. Here are the signs that Nick Fury is a Skrull.

First during Spider-Man: Far From Home, the end credits show that the Nick Fury shown in the movie is actually Talos. Talos is the Skrull we met during Captain Marvel. Moreover, during Spider-Man: No way home, we learn that Nick Fury has been off the ground for a year. But how far does this go? When did we last meet the real Nick Fury?

1. Avengers: Age of Ultron

During Captain Marvel, Nick Fury revealed a seemingly unnecessary fact about himself. Apparently he can’t eat diagonally cut sandwiches. This information becomes crucial when viewed in the context of Age of Ultron. During Age of Ultron, which is set 20 years later, Fury can be seen eating diagonally cut sandwiches quite nonchalantly. This would definitely be something a Skrull impostor would miss.

2. Nickname (pun intended)

Fury claims during Captain Marvel that everyone calls him Fury. In fact, they even use this anecdote to eliminate Skrull impostors within SHIELD in the movie itself. However, this is extremely contradicted in many MCU movies where many people called him Nick. Maria Hill, one of his closest allies, called him Nick several times before the snap. Of course, this could just be a mistake or a loophole, but Marvel has been known to plan ahead.

3. Absence of the MCU

Notable Nick Fury appearances include The Avengers and Captain America: Winter Soldier. Subsequently, he was briefly seen in Age of Ultron and appeared in the Infinity Wars post-credits. Between the two appearances, he practically disappeared. We have absolutely no idea what he did during that break. He again disappeared from the MCU as previously mentioned and did not participate in the final battle against Thanos in Endgame. Fans are waiting to see him again during Secret Invasion and finally learn the truth.

4. Lack of family and friends

Although Fury has occasionally referenced his family in conversations, we’ve never actually seen them on screen. In fact, we’ve barely seen Fury socialize outside of work, either with friends or family. It may just be speculation. But the other explanation is that he’s always been a Skrull, so he doesn’t actually have a family on Earth.

5. A Freudian slip

Another moment from Avengers: Age of Ultron secretly hints that Fury was a Skrull. He was giving another one of his pep talks to the heroes, preparing them to face Ultron. He particularly uses the phrase “back on Earth”. It could just indicate that he is not from planet Earth.

6. Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Attack on Fury in Winter Soldier

After the first attack on Nick Fury, it’s possible he had one of the Skrulls take his place while he was in hiding. So the man who went to meet Steve Rogers and then got shot could have been a Skrull. It would also explain how he survived the attack long enough to get to the hospital and receive proper treatment.

7. History with the Skrulls

The Skrulls Talos and Soren

Nick Fury knows the Skrulls from Captain Marvel. That would mean he’s known them for nearly three decades. During this period, he built a strong alliance with them based on mutual trust and respect. In fact, they aren’t mean or deceptive at all and are quite cooperative. This would mean that Fury can contact them whenever he needs their help. This means that Talos and Soren can easily step into the shoes of Nick Fury and Maria Hill and do it entirely at their behest.
