THE PUNISHER TARGETS NICK FURY IN GARTH ENNIS AND JACEN BURROWS' GET FURY!

Acclaimed creative team Garth Ennis and Jacen Burrows reunite in May for a new MAX-rated Punisher and Nick Fury wartime series.

New York, NY— February 8, 2024 — This May, legendary storyteller Garth Ennis returns to Marvel Comics in GET FURY, a new five-issue limited series starring two characters he helped define for the modern age: Nick Fury and Frank Castle. Joining Ennis will be frequent collaborator and superstar artist Jacen Burrows, along with acclaimed artist Dave Johnson for the series’ covers. This trio of talent will pit two of comics’ most formidable soldiers against each other in a bold and pulse-pounding saga set during the Vietnam War.

In addition to a return of Ennis, the retro series also marks an exciting comeback for Nick Fury and Frank Castle, two iconic characters who have passed on their mantles in present-day continuity. The MAX-rated saga kicks off when Frank is assigned what might be the most dangerous mission of his career: to assassinate Nick Fury!

It’s 1971, there is a war raging in Vietnam, and Nick Fury has been captured by the Viet Cong. At this moment, they don’t quite understand that they have in their possession a man who knows enough secrets to damage the United States beyond comprehension. The C.I.A., however, DOES realize this, and they can’t risk their enemy getting those secrets, so they dispatch the most deadly man in the U.S. Army – LT. Frank Castle.

On writing the characters again, Ennis shared: “There’s a nice sense of things coming full circle with GET FURY; the editor is my good friend Nick Lowe, who handled Born back at the beginning some 20+ years ago, and just like that story this one sees Frank Castle as a U.S. Marine in Vietnam (in fact, it goes some way to explaining how he ended up at Firebase Valley Forge in the first place). As the two most violent men in mainstream comics, Fury and Frank work well together- just like they did in the Vietnam sequence of Fury: My War Gone By. All in all, if GET FURY turns out to be the last time I write Frank, I think it’ll make for a worthy farewell.”

“I never have more fun on a project than I do with Garth, and his work with these two characters is world class,” Burrows added. “Getting to bring this chapter of their saga to life was extremely exciting to me as a huge fan of those previous books. And I think I am in the minority of artists that really enjoy the research aspect of doing a period book, so getting to draw a comic set at the tail end of the Vietnam War was a fun challenge.”

Actually feels really weird now to see the 616 Nick Fury, I felt like that variant just was completely axed out of comic lore, and the Ultimate (SLJ) version was just the definitive Nick Fury.

Old Man Fury resurfaced back in 2020 in the lead-up to Reckoning War. Uatu basically bursted out of his eye, doing away with the Unseen cryptic-speak shtick and returning Nick to his normal senses. He then acted as an agent of the Watcher. When the event ended, Uatu gifted him his citadel in the Blue Area of the Moon to keep doing his Man in the Wall black-ops shenanigans.

Glad to see it's Frank.

Of course but it's the "Old Him". The bad him before his modern day rehabilitation. Aside from saying it was all just a bad dream sequence there is no way to bring Frank back from what they've done to him. I mean if anyone can make Punisher likeable again I guess it's Garth but I kind of think this is just a ploy by Marvel/Disney to put butts in the seats. Whatever he tries to do the end result will be what Disney allows. In the end I don't think they intend for the Punisher to ever come back to his previous glory. The genie has already been let out of the bottle.

Yeah, how does a character go from corruption, to redemption, to corruption and then redemption again, over and over and over....., and make it believable??
Punisher was never ideal for a long-running standalone character.  He's a good guy who became bad.....and stayed that way, and the only way to "freshen" that up is to muck with the fundamentals of the character. He would  work far better now, in his original role........a recurring, visiting, anti-hero/villain, than as a headliner.

Oh wow, okay, didn't know this, that sounds fairly convoluted, but I guess I should expect that from current Marvel Stories.
