Nick Fury spoke with Tony Stark after Stark had brought an injured young boy named Matt Murdock on board the newly-completed S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier. Fury informed Stark that the radioactive isotope that had struck Matt across the eyes had made his senses superhumanly acute. Once Matt had fully recovered from the isotope incident, Doctor Frost removed the bandages from his eyes. Much to Matt's surprise, he had been rendered blind by the isotope. Nick Fury offered to help Matt deal with his blindness and Matt eventually took up S.H.I.E.L.D. training. While Matt trained, Fury spoke with Doctor Frost about how Matt would make a great S.H.I.E.L.D. field agent, but that he didn't want Matt to get hurt.

As Matt continued to train, Fury spoke to him directly, but when Matt asked about his father, Fury responded that he couldn't contact his father because it would violate security. Matt's superhuman hearing picked up the changes in Fury's heartbeat and instantly knew he was lying. He confronted Fury about it and Nick admitted that Matt's father had been kidnapped by Hydra. Angered that S.H.I.E.L.D. had hid the truth from him, Matt exclaimed to Fury that S.H.I.E.L.D. just lost themselves an agent.

Later that night, Matt and Frost obtained transportation off of the Helicarrier, but before they could get far, S.H.I.E.L.D. recaptured the ship in an aerial net. Matt attempted to dive from the captured ship, but S.H.I.E.L.D. managed to ensnare his leg and pull him back aboard the Helicarrier. Back inside, Fury yelled at Matt for putting himself into danger. Fury then revealed that S.H.I.E.L.D. had discovered the location of his father and that they were going to break him free that night. Matt decided to make a deal with Fury and told him that he would join S.H.I.E.L.D. as long as they would let him go in and save his father. Fury agreed, and replied that Matt should've become a lawyer. After Matt had saved his father, Fury announced that Matt was now set for life and that he had himself a good agent. As a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, Matt would use his old nickname, Daredevil.[1]
