Jack Kirby and the CrazySexyCool of a flying Porsche

It’s 1965 and Sean Connery has shown the world how to seduce Her Majesty’s Secret Service.  On this side of the pond, MARVEL COMICS decides it needs a super spy, too.

Hello Nick Fury.

Stan “The Man” Lee dusted off his old WWII icon, gave him an eye patch, and brought him in for the Cold War.  The CIA was hiring, but what does a G-Man drive?

Hello Jack Kirby

The story goes that legendary artist “King” Kirby wanted something sleek and exotic for Fury’s flying car, so his son handed him a ROAD & DRIVER with a new racing Porsche 904 (EDITOR- not the 910.  Who let HYDRA edit this thing?)

Eventually, Jack ditched the yellow.

We approve.
