The year was 1998, and Marvel had a big hit on their hands with the movie BLADE. But they also had one of the most notorious bombs ever with NICK FURY: AGENT OF SHIELD, a cheesy failed TV pilot starring David Hasselhoff from BAYWATCH as a cigar-chomping, jokester super spy who fights overacting Nazi bad guys who want to destroy the world with a super virus.
NICK FURY: AGENT OF SHIELD is one of Marvel's biggest misfires, but could it be that it was actually... CANCELED TOO SOON? William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold take you through the weird origin of this weird project, and consider the possibility that campy superheroes are just as valid as the serious ones, as our MARVELOUS MONTH OF MARVELS CONTINUES!
