Marcus Johnson was revealed to be Nick Fury Jr - the son of the original - in Battle Scars #6. Now complete with eye patch, bald head and goatee, the new-look Fury bears a striking resemblance to Samuel L Jackson, who portrays the character in The Avengers and Marvel Studios other recent films.
"He's certainly appearing regularly in [Ed Brubaker]'s Winter Soldier series," said Brevoort told Newsarma regarding the new Fury. "There's been talk about [Matt Fraction] using him over in Defenders.
"And obviously we're doing the Fury MAX series - it's MAX, so it's set aside from Marvel continuity, but it's the classic incarnation of the character.
"I don't think, necessarily, the advent of Marcus-Nick Fury means, inevitably, that you're looking at the demise of classic Nick Fury. You'll no doubt tend to see more of new Nick than older Nick in the days ahead. But honestly, even the roles that I see them playing are a little bit different from one another."
"In terms of where 'Marcus' Fury is set up at the end of Battle Scars, he's not the director of S.H.I.E.L.D., he is an agent. In my perfect world, he'll go out there and do all the kinds of stuff that Nick used to do back in the day.
"He won't be a guy that'll show up with a mission for a superhero, he'll be on a mission and team up with a superhero. That means you can still have old Nick in that role that he's been playing. It is kind of a way to eat our cake and have it too."
Battle Scars also saw the introduction of the film character Agent Coulson into Marvel's comics.
Jackson's portrayal of Fury in the films was originally based on Mark Millar's alternate Ultimates version, rather than the mainstream version.
