He announces to the world that he's placed a Death Spore bomb on board the Heli-Carrier which will unleash a plague upon the entire Earth! He plans to stage a fake trial for Laura, as an example to all who would defy him. Having suspected Bronson from the start, Fury who was hiding on board the Dyna-Soar is captured and discovers the true identity of the Supreme Hydra is Baron Strucker, his old foe from WW2!

Indexer Notes

Part 7 of 9. See various issues of SGT. FURY AND HIS HOWLING COMMANDOS for earlier appearances of Baron Strucker. 24 years had elapsed between Fury & Strucker's last meeting and this one. Shortly after this comic's publication, the 007 film YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE would reveal the identity of S.P.E.C.T.R.E.'s "Number One", Ernst Stavros Blofeld; Donald Pleasence's onscreen appearance, bald with an odd, monocle-shaped scar, is similar to Strucker's.

In the introduction to Marvel Masterworks: Nick Fury Agent of Shield Volume 2 Steranko says he took over the color chores with Strange Tales # 165.
