Synopsis for “Foggy Nelson, Agent of SHIELD”
Continued from last issue…
Daredevil and everyone gathered at Foggy Nelson’s New Years Eve party are shocked to learn that the reason why Hydra crashed it is because Nick Fury intends on recruiting Foggy into S.H.I.E.L.D. Fury explains that congress has decided that SHIELD is to be independently run and named Nick Fury Director of Operations. However, official SHIELD policy is to be determined by a five man committee and Fury has tabled Foggy Nelson as one of the committee members. When everyone begins to wonder where Matt Murdock is, Daredevil makes a hasty retreat so he can sneak into another room and change into his civilian identity.
Later that day, Daredevil and Black Widow are training in Matt’s private gym. Daredevil is distracted because he’s worried about Foggy. Much to his surprise however, the Black Widow has sent Ivan to keep an eye on him and make sure that SHIELD keeps him safe. When Matt attempts to entice a romantic moment with the Black Widow, Natasha rebuffs him telling him she is not ready to dive back into their relationship again and that she needs time. While at Hydra’s secret headquarters, El Jaguar reports back to the Supreme Hydra of his failure. Wishing to capture Nelson, the Supreme Hydra decides to send the robotic Dreadnought to collect the District Attorney.
The next day at City Hall, Ivan and the Black Widow are staking out the place while Matt Murdock and Foggy Nelson attend to business inside. As soon as the pair exit the building they are ambushed by Hydra agents, who are then counteracted by SHIELD operatives that have been hiding out in the area. The Dreadnought arrives and knocks Matt aside, allowing for Murdock to change into Daredevil. As he is occupied, the Black Widow attacks the robot, but finds herself woefully outmatched.
When Daredevil joins the fight not even he is much of a help and the Dreadnought manages to easily defeat both heroes with it’s various devices. Foggy surrenders to the robot when it threatens to kill the Black Widow, and is soon carried off by the Dreadnought.
When they all recover from the fight, Black Widow demands that Fury give her all the intelligence he has on Hydra, as she intends to go alone and rescue the man who gave himself up so that she might live, vowing to destroy Hydra if they have so much as harmed Foggy Nelson.
