Returning from their latest mission, Fury catches hell from the military brass. Count Royale continues bad-mouthing Fury to SHIELD's board of directors. A general explains to Fury how A.I.M. has technology they desperately need, but refuse to do business as long as Fury's in charge. This confirms Fury's earlier suspicions that A.I.M. is not legit. Royale has returned to an A.I.M. observation post and watches as a squad invades the SHIELD barber shop. Fury, Dum Dum & Jasper save the day. Royale, meanwhile, feels Fury's rash actions have put the last nail in his coffin.

Indexer Notes

Part 1 of 22. Unusually light-hearted "break" between 2 very long storylines. While the next 2 years of the series can be broken down into sections, each runs into the next so much it's effectively one single long epic.

Page 6, panels 3-5 and page 7, panels 1-5 consist of Steve Ditko panels from Strange Tales #127.
