Synopsis for "Secret Warriors"

Reprint of the 1st story from
Original Sin #4

Doctor Strange and Punisher's investigation took them to another realm, where they discovered somebody had been killing monsters. Realizing that the killer had been doing that for a long time, Strange realized that someone already knew about this, and merely sent him and Punisher to pick up his trail. Black Panther, Ant-Man and Emma Frost were returning from having discovered numerous underground monsters killed with gamma-irradiated bullets as they received the alert that Nick Fury had been killed, believing that couldn't be right, he deviated their shuttle's trajectory. As Wolverine and Hulk discovered Fury's corpse, Doctor Strange and Punisher arrived the Tower, incapacitating the Avengers and taking the Orb with them, who Strange detected as being useful for the investigation, as he could lead them to Uatu's eye.

Black Panther's team arrived to a hidden satellite, from where the same signal which contacted him for the investigation came from. They met Punisher and Doctor Strange there, as well as Bucky. As the Winter Soldier was explaining why was he there, Gamora and Moon Knight arrived to the base, having being rescued from the dead planet by Rocket Raccoon. As Gamora fought Bucky, the head of Nick Fury the Winter Soldier was holding was revealed to be a LMD's. Bucky revealed he had tracked down the signal of the LMD's chip to the satellite. As Emma Frost was questioning Black Panther whether they were actually working for Nick Fury or not, an elder Nick Fury revealed himself, accompanied by other LMDs of him.

Synopsis for "The Secret History of Colonel Nicholas J. Fury"

Reprint of the 1st story from
Original Sin #5

In order to give an explanation, Nick Fury told the heroes a story about his past. During a mission in Kansas, Fury found himself trying to fight off the aliens known as Tribellians. His forces were overpowered, but the tables were turned once Woody McCord arrived and defeated the monsters before being fatally injured. Howard Stark, McCord's partner, arrived to the scene and discovered Fury alongside Woody's corpse. He decided to show Fury the work McCord had been doing as defender of Earth, neutralizing any potential threat for the planet, and offered him Woody's job. Fury accepted and over the next years would secretly fight different super human threats, from aliens to Subterranean monsters and extra-dimensional beings, and those had been the corpses the different parties had found.

Before he could answer other questions, the Orb collapsed in the floor. Fury stated that his body was still absorbing what he stole from the Moon, and that they had to put him in the interrogation room as the clock was ticking. When Black Panther asked what happened to the Watcher, Fury replied merely that he had died, but also that he now supposed it was his turn.

Meanwhile, the Exterminatrix and Midas travelled to a certain location from which he activated a hidden vessel to go back to the Moon. Back to the satellite, Fury explained the heroes that because he now lacked the Infinity Formula in his blood, he was rapidly aging and was going to die. Fury had carefully chosen those heroes to follow his trail, as he wanted one of them to be his replacement. At the Avengers Tower, Iron Man was examining the corpse of the LMD killed by the Winter Soldier, and before it self-destructed as a self-defense mechanism, Stark managed to get the location to where the LMD had sent a signal. When Fury got an alert that the LMD had self-destructed, and concluding that he would soon be discovered, he took one of the Watcher's eyes from Bucky and enclosed himself in a secure room, as he tried to activate the second eye he had all this time. When the Avengers arrived to the satellite, Fury confronted the heroes, equipped with an armor while holding the two eyes of the Watcher, claiming that his eyes had been opened.

Synopsis for "The One Who Watches"

Reprint of the 1st story from
Original Sin #8

The watchers look on as Nick Fury and the other heroes engage the army of Mindless Ones. The Cosmic Man (formerly Dr. Midas) plans his next move, only to realize that his daughter, Oubliette Midas, has retreated to earth with his severed hand, which has the ability to turn anything it touches into gold. In the chaos, the Orb is able to obtain the Watcher's eyes. One of them embeds itself in his chest, and he leaves the other behind.

Dr. Strange warns Fury that the only reason the conflict is still going on is because Fury has one final sin to confess. Fury then admits to having killed the Watcher, although he defends his motives. The Winter Soldier reassures Fury that Fury has done enough and that he and the other heroes can finish the fight. However, Fury is determined to defeat Cosmic Man and bear the Watcher's burden himself. During their final confrontation, Fury uses the overwhelming energy of the Watcher's eye to kill Cosmic Man, but seemingly destroys himself in the process, as well. The heroes return to the Earth in a somber state. Meanwhile, Oubliette Midas muses over the fact that her family business will be ruined without her father, and the world she's been accustomed to has come to an end. Having mysteriously returned to Earth, the Orb barges into a home to watch a woman murder her husband.

Back in space, the Winter Soldier snipes a Zn'rx scout who was relaying news of the Watcher's death to his people. Despite earth's heroes believing that Fury had died, he is revealed to be alive on the blue area of the moon, where he is literally bound to his task as the anonymous successor of the Watcher -- tasked with recording earth's history but never meddling in its affairs.
