Foggy Nelson, Agent of SHIELD - J.D. Coughlan

SET-UP: Black Widow, Spider-Woman, She-Hulk and Captain America are captured and tied up aboard Red Skull's evil airship! When suddenly, Foggy Nelson, Agent of SHIELD, smashes in and sends the Skull falling to his fate!

Panel 1: Foggy, in a standard SHIELD uniform, and somewhat trimmer than usual, stands in front of the broken window Red Skull fell out of. He is holding two massive guns and wearing awesome sunglasses. Behind him is Cap, She-Hulk, Spider-Woman and Black Widow, all tied to chairs and looking at him in awe.

FOGGY: I rest my case.

Panel 2: The captives are freed. Cap shakes Foggy's hand; Cap is smiling like he met his hero, Foggy is nonchalant. The women are cheering.

CAPTION: Within seconds!

CAPT. AMERICA: God bless you, Foggy Nelson!


Panel 3: Nick Fury, panicked, bursts in from the next room (that's right; the next room in Red Skull's airship) clutching a piece of paper.

CAPTION: Suddenly!

NICK FURY: Great Scott, Foggy! This just in!

NICK FURY: Dr. Doom and Ultron have joined forces and have combined the Ultimate Nullifier, the Cosmic Cube and the Infinity Gauntlet into the Infinite Cubifier, and are threatening to blow up every orphanage in the world!

Panel 4: Close on Foggy.

FOGGY: Turn on your highbeams, Fury, 'cause things are about to get...

Panel 5: Same, except Foggy is putting another pair of sunglasses on over his existing pair.


Panel 6: Very close on Foggy's eyes (as covered by two pairs of sunglasses).

FOGGY: Foggy.


Obviously, this would turn out to be a dream sequence, but what a dream sequence!


  1. Funny and silly, I like it! Are you aware, though, that your set up actually occurred? See...

    1. I was not! Does the earlier version give Foggy an awesome catchphrase though? ;)

  2. I didn't know either, but WOW, that is a fun page! I love the sunglasses gag, too. The girls' chorus of undying Foggy love is just icing on the cake.

    This type of script would be perfect for an artist with manga leanings. Like Adam Warren, or Humberto Ramos, or Joe Mad, even.

    Cool, cool, cool...

  3. The best! This is the kind of script that I wish there were more of in the Big 2. So silly and ridiculous, but most of all, so fun! The whole thing is a big win in my opinion, but that sunglasses gag is the most hilarious.

    Well done, sir!

  4. Meme-tastic!

    A light, funnier page that there should be more of.
