Jackson in his legendary role as Nick Fury, the former Director of SHIELD who makes a long-awaited return to Earth to deal with a serious plot that threatens the survival of humanity. To stop the threat, Fury works with both new and old allies. Viewers may ask why the talented spy left Earth in the first place as Fury finds himself in a hazardous fight caused by hostile Skrulls. Here is all the information you require if you have been wondering why Nicky Fury departed Earth and where he was before the events of “Secret Invasion”! Spoilers follow!
Why Did Nick Fury Leave Earth?
One of the most significant figures in the ever-expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe is Nick Fury. Fury, who made his film debut in the post-credits sequence of 2008’s “Iron Man,” is in charge of the Avengers Initiative, which unites the Earth’s Mightiest Heroes to fight various dangers. Fury has taken on a diminishing position in the MCU prior to the conclusion of the Infinity Saga after having a big role in the 2012 film “The Avengers” and its follow-up “Avengers: Age of Ultron” Nick Fury, however, is not connected to the Avengers or present on Earth when viewers reintroduce themselves to him in the post-Blip universe after the events of “Avengers: Endgame.”
Fury enlists Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland) to deal with Quentin Beck/Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) and the menace of the Elementals during the events of “Spider-Man: Far From Home,” which take place months after the Blip, the undoing of Thanos’ snap. The Skrull leader Talos (Ben Mendelsohn) was actually Nick Fury all along, it is revealed in the post-credits sequence of the film, as Fury is seen to be aboard a space station after the Blip. Fury’s long period of absence from Earth has thus been shown. He has been working to establish the intergalactic space organization SABER in the meanwhile. It will not be revealed why Fury left Earth until the first episode of “Secret Invasion,” though.
In the opening episode of “Secret Invasion,” “Resurrection,” Agent Prescod unearths a plot involving dissident Skrulls attempting to conquer Earth. Talos consequently sends Nick Fury to Earth to assist in solving the problem. Fury and Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel (Brie Larson) grapple with the Kree-Skrull war during the events of “Captain Marvel.” Finally, Fury offers Skrulls safety on Earth and promises them a new home. Some Skrulls, however, saw Fury leaving Earth as an act of desertion. Fury discusses his time in space with Talos and Agent Maria Hill in “Secret Invasion.”
Fury adds that following the Blip, he experienced a crisis of faith, which prompted him to decide to depart from Earth. Fury does not go into detail about his choice, but it is clear that this crisis of faith is connected to Thanos’ assault on Earth. It is likely that after Thanos’ strike, Fury lost faith in his ability to protect the Earth. Fury attempts to make himself useful because he is only a regular human, yet with superpowered people and alien threats orbiting Earth, he feels unnecessary. As a result, Fury departed Earth to build SABER, a potent space station that keeps an eye on threats from other planets.
Fury’s desire to find his place in a society where it is getting harder for someone like him to make a difference ultimately seems to be what led him to decide to leave Earth. Fury’s time in space appears to have had an impact on his espionage abilities, nevertheless. In addition, Fury’s advanced age appears to be showing as he appears slower and more jaded in the first episode of “Secret Invasion.” As a result, it will be intriguing to observe how Nick Fury handles the Skrull menace while being at a significant disadvantage due to his time spent away from Earth.
