America #150-151 (1972)
A furious Fury boots Captain America out of S.H.I.E.L.D. HQ for not joining S.H.I.E.L.D.,
but Cap feels there's more to it then just that. Not a very nice appearence

three issues wherein Val makes Fury jealous by making passes at Cap. Really
quite beneath all of these characters, shame on Gerry Conway.

- Marvel Spotlight #32 "The Spider-Woman" (1977) -cover
Fury barely cameos, as yet another sexy super-heroine comes gunning for him

finally gives ole blue eyes his well deservered Cuban cigars.
