After Fear itself he returned to America to attend his mother’s funeral where he was almost assassinated by a Russian assassin and later taskmaster. He was saved by Captain America and secured by SHEILD. When they refused to tell him why his life was unraveling he escaped and made his way to an old friend, Coulson. While tracking Taskmaster for information he was attacked by Deadpool and the Serpent society including Puff Addler and Bushmaster. Marcus managed to find and secure Taskmaster and escape but was then confronted by his biological father, Nick Fury.

They were then confronted by more mercenaries who captured and took them to “Orion” who drained Fury of his blood to restore himself to youth.

Back at SHEILD he was given Steve Rogers old costume; the one he wore as head of SHEILD and an eye patch. As a SHEILD agent he was teamed with Coulson after his birth name was revealed as NICK FURY JR.
