Bruce Wayne: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.

    (Amalgam, 1996)
™ and ©1996 Marvel Characters, Inc. and DC Comics, Inc.

Bruce Wayne, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. was one of twelve titles DC and Marvel published jointly under the Amalgam masthead. Early in 1996, the two companies united to produce a four-issue Marvel Versus DC/DC Versus Marvel series in which their characters encountered and were forced to fight each other. Between the third and final issue the two universes merged, resulting in character fusions heretofore unimagined.

When his secret-agent parents were assassinated by operatives of the Green Skull, Bruce Wayne became obsessed with revenge. To that end, he joined S.H.I.E.L.D. with the goal of using the agency for his personal army. Perhaps the darkest of the Amalgam titles, Bruce Wayne, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. utilized elements of Batman, Nick Fury, Iron Man and even Sgt. Rock to portray a world reminiscent of Jim Steranko’s short but impressive tenure on Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.
