Nick Fury

The cowboy you like.

Ultimate Nick Fury is badass in the same was Sam Jackson’s characters are badass. Very suave and cool, and lets things build up until he snaps and goes crazy. A guy who responds to a threat by firing a missile up its ass.

616 Nick Fury is badass in the way Humphrey Bogart is. Grizzled old dinosaur, chomping on a cartoonishly oversized cigar, tear your head off if you looked at him the wrong way. A guy who responds to a threat by shoving a missile up its ass with his bare hands.

One’s not inherently better than the other, it’s just which cowboy you like better, John Wayne or Clint Eastwood.
