Plot

Doctor Midas and his daughter board a spacecraft to return to the moon. The real Nick Fury explains that the Infinity Formula that has kept him alive is exhausted, and as a result he is aging rapidly and will soon die. He has called a divese collection of heroes to him so that one of them may succeed him as the Man on the Wall. The heroes are incedulous, even thinking Nick has become mentally ill. They claim they save the world "the right way"; Nick says what he's been doing is why they can retain that naivete. On Earth, Tony accidently triggers a self-destruct in a Nick Fury LMD, "Andrew", and this alerts Nick. He flees deeper into his complex, and demands the Orb explain how he got the Watcher's eye to reveal its secrets. The Orb believes the eye "liked him". Nick's invited heroes and eliminated his small army of LMDs and the Avengers, following the destroyed LMD's signal, have arrived. All of them now confront an armed and armored Nick Fury. He's dying, but as long as he's not dead he has his job...
