Synopsis:
HYDRA Number 72 hires the services of Bulls-eye, a paid assassin, to kill Nick Fury. Fury is concerned that 3 CIA operatives have been killed, and feels SHIELD could handle the investigation better than they could. Fury picks up Laura for a date, and as they drive, they're followed all over town by Bulls-eye. Number 72 plans to turn NYC into a "bloody battleground" within the hour following Fury's death. Fury & Laura attend a concert by Country Joe & The Fish in Central Park, when Bulls-eye strikes! Abruptly, Number 72 decides this would be the moment SHIELD would expect HYDRA to strike-- and changes his plans! Instead, SHIELD converges on Central Park, and corner Bulls-eye, who decides to shoot it out with them. Dugan shoots Bulls-eye dead, then ponders if there's any pieces of SHIELD left to pick up...

Indexer Notes

Bulls-eye's only appearance; not related to the Marv Wolfman villain from DAREDEVIL #131 (March 1976). Following Number 72's instructions, Number 72 inexplicably wastes energy running all over NYC following Fury, even though he knew in advance where his target would be later in the day! Equally baffling is his wearing a brightly-colored costume while trying to escape from the scene of a murder. Last episode. Nick Fury turns up alive 2 months later in THE AVENGERS #72 (January 1970).
