Synopsis for "Leviathan"
Nick Fury sneaks into Avengers Tower and wakes up Norman Osborn from his own bed, stating that he's here on a matter of national security. Osborn shows him his list, which details what he plans to do to certain people, which includes controlling the world and kill Fury. Fury shows his own list: save the world, punch Osborn in the face, have a beer. But Fury tells him that they have more important matters to take care of.
H.A.M.M.E.R. agents apprehend Seth Waters from the Department of Treasury before he could commit suicide. Once he's in custody, Victoria Hand briefs both Osborn and Fury that Waters has been secretly funneling money to an unspecified location. All what they recovered from his office was some kind of data storage device. Osborn tries interrogating Waters to see if he's with Hydra, but Waters smugly states that the people he works for are much more powerful than either Hydra or H.A.M.M.E.R. Unsatisfied, Osborn sends Bullseye in to torture Waters with toothpicks. While behind the two-way mirror, Fury persuades Osborn to hand him the device, since he's not going anywhere. Soon, Bullseye manages to pry an answer out of Waters, who admits that he works for a group called Leviathan. Having his answer, Fury then gives the signal to Garrett to blow Waters' head off. Fury then punches Osborn in the face. Garrett provides cover fire for Fury as he escapes to his flying car. Ares aids in their escape by taking down two pursuing helicopters.
Once they are safely at a safehouse in Rome, Fury accesses Waters' device. It contains the locations of Leviathan bases throughout Russia, as well as the identities of the twelve members of the Zodiac - men including Nick Fury, Baron Strucker, and John Garrett - individuals in positions of power within S.H.I.E.L.D., Hydra, and Leviathan.
Norman Osborn's got it in for Marvel's super spy, but what happens when he needs Nick Fury to uncover a breach in National Security? Nothing good, nothing good at all. It's lies, interrogations, double-crosses and just a whole bunch of meanness - It's the LIST. Plus, Nick Fury Files and a classic reprint.
