Unfortunately for as prevalent as he is in Phase One, Coulson doesn't actually DO a lot in these movies until the Avengers. His main schtick is to just show up and be professional and just a little bit quirky to make the audience like him and provide a connective element that gives the universe a sense of genuine cohesion.

That being said, I have big plans for Clark ahead, so I'd be remiss if I cut out this bit.

The same cannot be said for the replica Captain America shield that pops up in this scene, which I've done my best to remove. XD

"Reports of Fury's badassery have been greatly exaggerated."

Anyone else get the feeling that whenever Fury comes up in the action; he'll roll at least one nat 20? Such as when he single-handedly shoots down a jet plane in Avengers.

Well Fury's definitely a badass up to a point. He just isn't the "Chuck Norris of the campaign" that everyone besides Clark seems to think he is. ;)

As long as Fury roll often enough, nat 29 isn't that rare to appear. This isn't GURPS, for Pete's sake. Try rolling crit in that system.

Huh... I must admit, I am curious as to whether or not "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." will canonically happen in the strip. Not necessarily in the campaign, mind you. I could see someone getting permission to run it as a separate campaign, examining what may or may not be happening around the events depicted in the films.

Possibly Clark being the GM for a different group of players and again, not saying it needs to play out in comic form here if that is the route you go. Don't wanna burn you out! XD Though it might be fun to have it mentioned in a passing line of dialog. Of course, I currently expect Clark to just take over and run some other character, but that is enough from me. ;)

Well, I can definitely say I'm not planning to adapt any of the pre-Wandavision TV shows as part of the comic. That would take ENTIRELY too long. XD

And honestly, given recent rumors and rumblings, I'm kind of waiting for a sign from Marvel to decide which plan I want to go with regarding whether the TV shows exist as separate ones or not. Fortunately, still plenty of time before it becomes an issue, and regardless of which direction I end up picking, big plans for Clark no matter what.

Yeah, I could see Clark running it separately, and maybe we get the occasional mention from Kevin, or Clark if he's take another role in the main campaign, about some things happening in that other game.

Understandable not to run the other pre-Wandavision shows, but again could be interesting getting a mention of them as some other games being ran elsewhere.

Though I would like to see some of the Marvel One-Shots used in the comic.
I'd assume at least "The Consultant" and "A funny Thing Happened on the Way to Thor's Hammer" will occur.

ETT #7. Nick Fury is not actually a "standard high-level espionage character". He is actually a Rogue 1/Executive 1/Bard 18 with the Pyramid Schemer prestige class with a max Charisma, which he uses to spread rumors of his badassery. He mainly fights by press-ganging others into fighting for him.
