Synopsis:
After being struck by lightning in the small town of Arbory, Hulk touches random metal objects through town, instinctively finding a way to discharge the electricity from his body. In the process he re-illuminates a darkened street, serving up two petty criminals to the oncoming police. After firing their guns at the police, the crooks try to escape by car. Hulk stands in the way of their oncoming car, and the impact kills them. However, the car acts as a lightning rod for Hulk's over-electified body. When the cops make it to the scene, they find the two dead crooks and a car that looks smashed, but—having never actually seen Hulk at all—they surmise that the car must've been struck by lightning. His biochemistry returning to normal levels, Hulk stumbles away from his mindless—albeit helpful—rampage, to transform back into Dr. Bruce Banner.

Notes:
Banner never appears in this strip, and Hulk himself is obviously not literate.

Though an American setting is convincingly displayed here, British spellings of words bely that this is an original Marvel UK story.

Synopsis:
On a mission to deliver blood to remote areas of Cornwall, a UK government helicopter is downed by an accidental encounter with the Black Knight upon his flying steed. The Knight lands at the site of the crash, and ascertains that he needs to pick up the blood and deliver it for the downed chopper pilot.

Deep within a dark castle, Mordred learns of the encounter and notes that the Black Knight has at last broken his cover. He sends his minions after the Knight. Meanwhile, the chopper pilot radios his status back to base, and they send out a military jet to intercept the Knight. The jet downs the Knight easily, unwittingly serving him up to Mordred's black crows . . .

Notes:
This story is hard to categorize in terms of its UK/US status. It's clearly an original story, written by staff of Marvel UK. If read alongside other Nick Fury tales of the day being printed in the US, it would not have been considered "current" US continuity. However, viewed from 2007, it's not offensive to the overall US Nick Fury continuity. Until further evidence suggests otherwise, this story will be said to contain the antics of the "mainstream" Nick Fury.

Synopsis:
Mafia bosses are having a business meeting. They are discussing how best to carve up the city. Suddenly, one of the people at the table steps into the light to reveal that he's not one of them. Within seconds, the mysterious stranger has the entire conference subdued. As his coup de grace, he extends his hand and places it on the forehand of the main "godfather" in the group. The act destroys the mind of the man, and leaves his forehead branded with a symbol. A note attached to the lapel of the man simply reads, "Where brooding darkness spreads its evil wings the Night Raven stings!

Notes:
This story represents the first appearance of Night-Raven, one of the very Marvel UK characters to eventually make the transition into the mainstream (US) Marvel Universe.
