DID YOU KNOW? Back in 1981, when Hasbro was developing the G.I. Joe: Real American Hero toyline, comic creator and Marvel editor Larry Hama was coincidentally also pitching a comic titled Fury Force that would center on a group of elite soldiers, including Nick Fury’s son. Hasbro would then go to Marvel to work out a partnership to use their characters to make comics.
As many diehard G.I. Joe fans know, Hama would eventually sign on to help create the G.I. Joe comic. After signing on with G.I. Joe, it seems that he used and adapted many of the concepts and characters from Fury Force to G.I. Joe.
