Washington, in a hospital affiliated with S.H.I.E.L.D. Fury is in the operating room for intensive care. Steve, Natasha, Hill, Sitwell, and several high-level agents are outside the window.
At this moment, a ring of fire suddenly formed out of thin air. Jerry, Coulson, and Garrett walked out of the ring of fire.
“You’re all here. How’s the director?” Jerry looked at the senior agents standing in a large circle outside the room and asked Steve.
He pointed to the window, frowning, “He’s still being taken care of, but the injury is serious.”
Although Fury did a lot of things that made Steve didn’t like him very much, he had to admit that he was an important figure. If he died, the whole S.H.I.E.L.D. management would go into chaos.
In the early morning, Fury suddenly found him and said that S.H.I.E.L.D. had a traitor, and what he said was too vague.
“John Garrett? What’s up with him?” When Hill and the others saw that Coulson was handcuffing Garrett, they all showed a surprised look.
At this time, Jerry cast Legilimency and then looked at both Hill and Sitwell in the room. S.H.I.E.L.D. doesn’t know how many Hydra spies there are now. Steve and Natasha are Avengers, so there must be no problem, but he wasn’t sure about Hill and Sitwell.
“Huh, he is one of them.” He didn’t expect that one of the two was really a spy for Hydra.
“This is Clairvoyant, the leader of that organization. We just captured him in a base far away from here.”
It is unbelievable that a dignified high-level agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. would actually be the leader of the opposition organization that would be fighting against S.H.I.E.L.D.
In the operating room, Fury’s electrocardiogram became a straight line. This means that the operation failed, and Fury died.
The sudden situation in the operating room immediately caused everyone to turn their attention away from Garrett. Compared with the death of the director of S.H.I.E.L.D., the betrayal of an eighth-level agent was less important.
“Jerry, does your magic work?” Rogers and the others all turned their attention to Jerry.
They were eager to find Jerry and wanted to see if Jerry’s healing magic could pull Fury back from the dead.
Jerry pretended to be helpless and shook his head, “If he is just injured, I can do it. But if he is dead, I can’t do anything about it.”
At Jerry’s current level, it can be rescued as long as the soul is not gone. The reason for this answer now is that Fury is not dead at all. His soul has not come out of his body. From just reading Hill’s thoughts, he knows that Fury is just pretending to be dead.
When everyone heard this, a sad expression appeared on their faces.
It’s just that some people are really sad, such as Steve, Coulson, Natasha, and others are faking it, like Hill.
Ten minutes later, in the hospital morgue.
Everyone fell into silence as they looked at the corpse of the director, who was lying there without the slightest breathing.
“I’m going to call Pierce and report the news of the director’s death.” Sitwell carefully observed Fury’s body, and after confirming that it was indeed dead, he left the room.
The crowd didn’t say much. Alexander Pierce, the former S.H.I.E.L.D. director and now the head of the World Security Council, is the only person with the right to lead the entire S.H.I.E.L.D. now that Fury is confirmed dead. Therefore, it is normal for Sitwell to report the news.
When Sitwell walked out of the room, Jerry directly opened the mirror dimension and pulled everyone present, including Fury.
“Okay, you can now wake up.” After entering the mirror dimension, Jerry walked to Fury and cast a healing spell.
After a while, Fury’s eyes moved, and then he slowly opened his eyes.
“Hill, what’s going on?”
Looking at the location where he is not the secret base planned before, but a morgue. Fury was stunned to see Hill. There are Steve, Natasha, Coulson, Garrett, and Jerry.
It was confirmed that Fury was dead, and everyone was sad about it. But he suddenly opened his eyes and spoke.
Hill was stunned for a while, “Director, something happened.”
The original plan was that after everyone had left, she would secretly take the director to a base and use medication to wake him up. But Steve called the Wizard, and Jerry directly used magic to wake him up ahead of schedule.
“Director Fury, I think you should explain why you are pretending to be dead. Don’t worry. I have pulled everyone into the mirror dimension, which is isolated from the real dimension. Those monitoring equipment in the morgue will not work.” Jerry said directly.
Fury’s face changed, and finally, he sighed, “Well, we better start from the attack on Jerry’s house first.”
Fury said everything that happened before. Since Hydra attacked Jerry’s house, it turned out that Fury secretly started investigations on the entire S.H.I.E.L.D.
Since he is not sure how many people in S.H.I.E.L.D. are Hydra spies, he only asks Agent Hill to be responsible for this investigation. All kinds of clues point out that there may be a lot of Hydra spies hidden in S.H.I.E.L.D., and many senior agents have certain suspicions.
They were also aware of the seriousness of the matter that Fury immediately went for Pierce to stop the “Project Insight” that was originally planned to be implemented.
However, within a day, he was fatally attacked on the road. After he escaped, he came to Steve’s house as soon as possible. Steve should not be a Hydra member, and he is strong enough to provide him with protection.
But he was still caught by them and attacked once again.
He knew they would not give up as long as he didn’t die. He asked Hill to inject himself with tetrodotoxin B, which Dr. Banner once studied, and then investigate what was happening.
“What’s Project Insight?”
Steve keenly discovered that Fury was assassinated after stopping that project. So the purpose of Hydra in S.H.I.E.L.D. was probably to start this project.
Fury sighed, “There are too many criminals in this world, and alien forces eyeing them. Our power is currently limited to monitoring them. In order to protect the earth better, we have gathered all our scientific and technological forces and spent a lot of money to build three latest-generation aerospace aircraft carriers.”
“After they lift off, they orbit around the earth and are equipped with the most advanced long-distance weapons, which can destroy enemies in one minute with the help of satellites. Those criminals don’t need to show up, the satellite can read their DNA, and we can kill the threat quickly. That’s Project Insight.”
“You hang guns over everyone’s heads and call it protection? Only bad people need to be watched. You’ve turned the entire earth into a prison. You’re not different from Hydra.” Steve replied.
Fury nodded and said in a somewhat self-deprecatingly manner, “You’re right. I’m arrogant. I feel like I’m in control. But the truth is, I’m now broken.”
Hydra infiltrated S.H.I.E.L.D., and he was almost assassinated. It finally made him realize that some of his previous ideas were not so correct.
“I have just used magic to heal most of your injuries. You should be able to live and breathe as long as you drink this bottle of potion.” Jerry took a step forward, took out a bottle of potion he had made before, and threw it to Fury.
Fury drank the potion without hesitation, “Thank you, I now regret not taking that magic mirror with me on the second floor.”
If he hadn’t always been wary of Jerry, he would keep the magic mirror in a room in the headquarters alone for safekeeping. In case of a situation like this, he could use the magic mirror to call Jerry for help.
“Well, add the healing magic and potion to your tabs. When everything’s over, remember to pay for it. Oh yeah, also add my reward for handling Clairvoyant.” Jerry pointed his finger at Garrett, who Coulson had pinned down.
He is not as angry as Steve for Fury’s Project Insight. After all, even if the aircraft really go to space, it will not pose any threat to him because he can directly fly up and shoot down the aircraft.
As the director of S.H.I.E.L.D., when he knew that countless aliens in outer space were far stronger and it would be a threat to the Earth, it was normal for them to fortify their defenses.
It’s just that if the people who control the aircraft have always been righteous people, it will definitely help mankind. Unfortunately, as a global organization and not an individual, how can it always ensure that the controller can keep the peace in the world?
Whenever there is an evil controller in the future, then it will be a disaster for human beings on Earth. From a personal standpoint, no one likes that a sharp sword is put above their head, and it would kill them at any time.
Hearing that the Wizard asked for a fee, Fury didn’t care. He was used to it, but the moment he saw Garrett, there was another stunned look in his eyes, “I didn’t expect that Clairvoyant would be you, Garrett.”
“He’s not just Clairvoyant, he’s also connected to Baron Wolfgang von Strucker from Hydra, and I now suspect he’s a Hydra spy himself.” Colson briefly recounted what had happened before.
“A Hydra spy? What is the current situation of Hydra? I think we should almost know the answer now. It just so happens that another Hydra spy had come back.”
At this time, Jerry saw Sitwell walk back into the morgue after the phone call, pull him into the mirror dimension, and then take out two bottles of Veritaserum.
After reporting to Pierce about the news of Fury’s death and the news that the Wizard captured Garrett, Sitwell came back, only to find that everyone in the room had disappeared. Before he could react, he called the members of the special forces guarding outside to come in and was pulled into the mirror dimension.
“What’s going on? Director, you’re not dead!” When Sitwell saw Fury standing there, he was shocked.
Before he could react, Jerry had already forced him to drink a bottle of Veritaserum.
“Agent Sitwell, are you a Hydra spy?”
“I am a Hydra agent, the dean of the Hydra Academy, responsible for recruiting the agents who graduated from the S.H.I.E.L.D. Academy to enter Hydra.”
First, it was Sitwell, and then Garrett was asked by several of the most professional S.H.I.E.L.D. agents in turn, and they told all the information about Hydra that they knew. The truth of the facts made everyone stunned, and even Fury was shocked for a long time and could not calm down.
Originally, they always thought it was the revival of the Hydra, and then gradually sent spies to infiltrate S.H.I.E.L.D., and then rose to the top step by step to steal intelligence from S.H.I.E.L.D. However, two-thirds of the agents in the entire S.H.I.E.L.D. are Hydra agents.
All the agents who graduated from the S.H.I.E.L.D. Most of the Academy will be called into the Hydra Academy for secondary training before working here.
Since the establishment of S.H.I.E.L.D., most tasks have served Hydra. Hydra secretly controls many wars and anyone who notices it will be immediately assassinated.
For example, one of the founders of S.H.I.E.L.D., Howard Stark and Nick Fury.
The current leader of Hydra is the former director of S.H.I.E.L.D. and now the chairman of the World Security Council, Alexander Pierce.
During World War II, Dr. Zola was captured by Steve. Later, he joined S.H.I.EL.D. when S.H.I.E.L.D. was established and then secretly contacted the remaining Hydra agents to infiltrate S.H.I.E.L.D. internally step by step.
Moreover, he also devoted his life to creating a “Zola” artificial intelligence, which can calculate whether it may pose a threat to Hydra in the future through all the information and big data.
In Jerry’s view, it is a scientific version of prophecy. If it poses a threat, shoot it directly with the aircraft to clear the threat for Hydra in advance.
“The aircraft must be prevented from taking off. Otherwise, according to Zola’s calculation, countless innocent people on Earth will be destroyed by them. I need you to infiltrate S.H.I.E.L.D. and replace the positioning systems of the aircraft.”
After digesting the information from the two Hydra spies after a moment of silence, Fury habitually began to issue orders.
However, he was only halfway through his words when Steve interrupted him, “Not just the aircraft, we have to destroy the entirety of S.H.I.E.L.D.!”
“Destroy S.H.I.E.L.D.? S.H.I.E.L.D. has nothing to do with this matter. It’s Hydra.”
Fury was about to defend when Rogers interrupted him, “S.H.I.E.L.D. is Hydra. Hydra has completely infiltrated it. How many innocent people died because of it? You can’t control them all. Neither S.H.I.E.L.D. nor Hydra can stay.”
For so long after his resurrection, he has been performing tasks for S.H.I.E.L.D., but in the end, he is serving the mortal enemy Hydra. How can this not make him angry?
“I agree with him, and I also think that Hydra or S.H.I.E.L.D. does not need to exist.” Jerry was the first to agree with Steve.
Without the existence of S.H.I.E.L.D., he can do things more freely in the future. This time he thought it was just to help a terrorist organization and earn several red stars for him, but he didn’t expect that the entire Hydra and S.H.I.E.L.D. needed to be wiped out.
After all, according to what the two Hydra spies just said, Hydra has been waging war and manipulating history over the years. It also needs to develop a plan to kill hundreds of thousands of people who are a threat to Hydra.
After dealing with this, he wouldn’t have to worry about earning any more red stars.
Immediately after, Jerry, Natasha, Coulson, and even Hill all agreed.
They joined S.H.I.E.L.D. and sacrificed their lives to complete the mission. Most importantly, they believe in the lofty concept of S.H.I.E.L.D. to protect the earth and ordinary people from harm, not for power, money, or status.
When they know that among the countless tasks they have done, many of them may be Hydra agents, it really feels like there’s nothing they can do about it.
Seeing this, Fury had to sigh helplessly, “Well, what you said makes sense, but I still want to say that the concept of S.H.I.E.L.D. has always been good.”
“If I can deal with Hydra this time, I will no longer serve as the director. I will choose a suitable person, inherit the concept of S.H.I.E.L.D., and continue to solve the troubles that ordinary people cannot solve.”
Steve did not object this time.
Jerry clapped his hands, “Okay since that’s the case. Let’s go and deal with the problem.”
After speaking, he directly reached out and drew a portal, “Where does this lead to?”
Coulson found the scene across from the teleporters somewhat familiar scene.
Jerry laughed, “Director Fury’s office. We will go directly to the headquarters to solve the problem now.”
“We haven’t made a plan yet.” Fury retorted.
As the director of S.H.I.E.L.D., he knows best how strong the number of agents and defensive capabilities of the headquarters are. If they enter like that, it would be a reckless action.
“I’ve already thought about the plan. It’s simple. Go there and then capture Pierce alive. All the Hydra agents who dared to resist will be killed. This way, we could seize control of the base quickly.” Jerry replied.
They are all ordinary people, and they don’t have any weapons that could destroy the world in their hands. In Jerry’s view, there is no need to waste time, and he has to go back to class.
Not everyone thinks that Jerry’s plan is unreliable. At least Coulson still believes in the success rate of Jerry’s plan.
“There is still an hour until nine o’clock. If you are still hesitant, then I will go first. Let me tell you this. I can’t tell which are the Hydra or the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents. Don’t blame me if they’re all dead.”
Seeing that everyone was still thinking, Jerry stepped directly across the portal and appeared in the office.
Jerry just passed the portal, and Coulson stepped over, “Is there anything important at nine o’clock? Could it be that Pierce intends to take off at nine o’clock?”
“Oh, no. It’s just that I have a class at nine o’clock, so I can’t be late. I’m a student at university, you know?” Jerry’s answer left Fury, Hill, Steve, and Natasha speechless for a while.
