Samuel Sawyer. During one mission, Fury’s left eye was damaged by a grenade and his lack of medical care eventually aggravated the wound. At one point, Professor Berthold Sternberg gave Fury the “Infinity Formula,” which retarded Fury’s aging process, although it required him to take regular injections to stay alive.

Fury recruited many of the Howlers to the organization, notably Dum Dum.

He has trained as a paratrooper, Ranger, demolitions expert and vehicle specialist. He holds an unlimited-tonnage, all-seas license as a commander of ocean-going vessels. Fury has completed Green and Black Beret Special Forces training, and has been an agent of the O.S.S. and a liaison of the MI-5.

◀(Follow @superhero_dna)▶ - - Today's #Characteroftheday - Rogue! - - 🔶Once a member of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, Rogue has since become a veteran member of the X-Men. After many years, she has finally gained conscious control of her power to absorb the thoughts, abilities and memories of others through physical contact. She is currently a member of both the Avengers Unity Squad and the X-Men team, based out of Jean Grey's School for Higher Learning. - - 🔶Rogue is a long-time, central character in the X-Men world within the Marvel Universe. Her beginnings were as a simple villain being led on by Mystique. But her battle with Carol Danvers and the absorption of her powers of strength and flight stuck and became definitive of her for many years. The encounter with Carol Danvers also had the side-effect of introducing Rogue to the X-Men, whose line-up she would never leave again. The Ms. Marvel powerset stuck with her, even after a passage through the Siege Perilous. Rogue was one of the few X-Men characters whose real name had never been revealed until a long time after their first appearance. - - 🔶Rogue is a mutant who formerly possessed the ability to absorb the memories, abilities, personality, and outward physical characteristics of other beings through skin-to-skin contact. After permanently absorbing the powers of Ms. Marvel, Rogue possessed an amalgamated mutant human/alien Kree physiology that granted her a degree of immunity to poisons, and a virtually indestructible body. - - #rogue #xmen #mutant #mutants #deadpool #AntmanAndtheWasp #AvengersInfinityWar   #avengers  #infinitywar  #ironman   #BlackPanther #spiderman  #captainamerica  #thor  #thanos #MarvelStudios #marvel  #marvelcinematicuniverse  #MarvelHeroes #marvelcomics  #superheroes   #comics  #comic #comicbook  #geek  #nerd   #postoftheday #photooftheday  #SuperheroDNA

◀(Follow @superhero_dna)▶ - - Today's #Characteroftheday - Red Tornado! - - 🔶There were two tornado entities that originated from the planet Rann in the Earth-One universe; the Tornado Champion and the Tornado Tyrant combined as one entity. This being confronted Rann's adopted champion, Adam Strange, and was defeated. After that defeat, the being contemplated the nature of good and evil and decided that good was the superior force. The good side called itself the Tornado Champion; the evil side, the Tornado Tyrant. - - 🔶Disappointed, the Tornado Champion lured the Tyrant to Earth-One, where the Tyrant was defeated by the real JLA. The Tornado Champion decided that there was no pleasure in being an imitation, and went to Earth-Two to find a new identity. The Tornado Champion came upon the criminal T. O. Morrow, who was making an android with which T.O. was hoping to infiltrate and defeat the Justice Society of America. The Tornado Champion decided to assume control of the robotic form. The merging had an unexpected side effect, and the Tornado Champion's memory was erased. Red Tornado thus seemed to be a new life-form. - - 🔶Red Tornado is an air elemental, housed in an android shell. He can create powerful air currents that can level huge skyscrapers in seconds. He channels air and wind forces through his arms and legs to produce bursts of cyclone-force winds and high speed forward velocity flight. He can also absorb air. - - #redtornado #supergirl #jla #justiceleague   #dc  #dccomics  #dceu  #dcHeroes   #DCUniverse #batman  #superman  #flash  #shazam  #wonderwoman  #aquaman  #cyborg  #greenarrow #greenlantern #Superheroes  #comic  #comicbook  #Comics  #Geek  #nerd  #postoftheday  #photooftheday #SuperheroDNA
