Secret Warriors #27 Review by (April 18, 2020)
As of this writing Jake Fury has never been seen again,.

Baron Strucker will be alive again in the post-Secret Wars III universe, starting in All-New, All-Different Marvel Point One.

Hydra of course keeps on going. ("Cut of 1 head ... etc.") I've already mentioned that Gorgon and Viper's Hydra will return with Norman Osborn to menace the Avengers. But also Baron Zemo and a new Queen Hydra will run a version of the group in Captain America's series.

Orion leaves this series here. He and Leviathan will make 1 more appearance in the Battle Scars mini-series. He will be dying due to what Nick Fury did to the Leviathan members (to be revealed next issue). And he will be seeking Fury's son (later to take the name Nick Fury Jr) for the Infinity Formula in his blood.


Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Secret Warriors #27 Synopsis by Rob Johnson
Last issue everything was turned upside down, and it all stemmed from the Great Wheel cabal in the 1960's, when Nick Fury, Jake Fury and Thomas Davidson discovered the LMD technology in Leonardo da Vinci's tomb and hid it from the other Zodiac members. Baron Strucker realised that Hydra had not been controlling SHIELD as he thought, but ...

... ""I've been working for you the whole time!" Nick Fury can't help but gloat. Kraken returns to the room (and last issue it was revealed that he is Jake Fury, ever since the original Kraken died) to report that ex-Howling Commando and now-Senator Reb Ralston sealed the deal, and the psi-agents have cleared a route to their escape ship.

There's just 1 more thing to take care of. Jake hands Nick a gun. Nick loads it and turns to Wolfgang von Strucker, his enemy since WWII. He says that his son Mikel and his team died destroying the last of the Hive bases (#24). The Baron at least takes comfort that he has caused this loss, and hopes it haunts Nick's sleep until he dies. Fury replies that all the people he has sent to their deaths is his own fault. He accepts the blood, and he'll sleep when he's dead. He asks Strucker if he has any last words. Strucker says "Yes." Fury says "Too *$@#%@ bad" and empties the clip into his foe's head.

Meanwhile in a new Leviathan base Perestroika Orion and Val de Fontaine review their remaining troops. Which suddenly start exploding into green goo. Val figures Nick is somehow responsible. (And next issue he'll tell her how he did it.)

But now we go to the United Nations where the Security Council are discussing their plans to combat the recently escalating threat from Hydra and Leviathan. They have agreed to set up a force to handle it, and the American representative tells them that the US Government has agreed to provide most of the funding. But the President has a few provisos before he'll sign off on it.

Senator Ralston co-sponsored the relevant Bill and the President has sent him to explain. The President doesn't want the troops to wear UN uniforms. And he wants someone American with oversight over the organisation, at least for 4 years. And the Pres has put Ralston forward.

In Berlin a woman surrenders herself to the German Intelligence Agency, the BND. It's Val and she demands to see the boss.

2 days later Jake Fury comes to see Daisy Johnson sunbathing in her bikini on a Hawaiian beach and gives her a note from Nick. She detects the family resemblance and thinks she's met him before. (He doesn't enlighten her that he was Kraken.) She's still angry at Nick for what happened to her White team and can't help a jibe that Nick's an inveterate liar. Jake counters that Nick told him that Daisy was the best agent he ever trained, but maybe he was lying then?

Daisy goes in to see Sebastian Druid, whose beach hut they are living in. They hear the news about the new UN force. Daisy reads the note and then tells Sebastian to prepare for a trip.
