Indexer Notes

Part 5 of 9. Fury's "Repulsor Watch", capable of deflecting bullets, later turned up in the film LIVE AND LET DIE (1973), though in the movie, it was only used to attract metal, not deflect it.

In addition to these dangers, Fury must also cope with his 3 best friends, who've been hypnotized to kill him.

Indexer Notes

Part 6 of 9. Fury comments that no amount of attempted brainwashing could ever force Sitwell to turn bad as "it's against his principles". Last issue, reprints end on a cliffhanger. Reprints continue in CAPTAIN BRITAIN (Marvel UK) #1 (October 13, 1976), but skip the last 3 episodes of the "Hydra Reborn" story, which were NOT reprinted until 2000!
