Captain Marvel: 5 Times Nick Fury Should Have Asked Help From Her

Captain Marvel is one of the toughest and strongest Avengers. Her film debut in 2019 exhibited her origin story and from there, we witnessed her tight friendship with Nick Fury. He was instrumental to Danvers’s journey of discovering her past.

The events that happened within the course of Marvel Cinematic Universe had us all thinking: why did not Nick Fury call Captain Marvel? Of course, her introduction towards the latter part of Phase 3 was intended. However, setting that thought aside, Captain Marvel could have helped save the Earth a couple of times.

When The Chitauri Attacked New York

The Earth faced the wrath of the Chitauri that Loki had let in. The Avengers stood their ground and fought tirelessly, killing every single one of them. But, a little help from a more powerful being could end the battle as early as possible.

This was the introduction of the original Avengers team and this scene is so significant in their first-ever epic fight. If Nick Fury decided to contact Captain Marvel, she could have been part of the original superheroes of the MCU.

When Ultron Was Created

After the danger posed by the Chitauri on earth, Tony Stark ‘accidentally’ unleashed a deadlier threat in the form of Ultron. The evil robot aims to bring destruction into the world under the ruse of ‘peace in our time’.

If the mutant twins did not come to aid the Avengers, they could actually lose a chance. Remember, it was Scarlet Witch who killed Ultron. Had they not entered the picture, Fury should have sought Captain Marvel’s assistance.

When The Dark Elves Invaded Earth

This intergalactic danger brought by the Dark Elves caused so much ruckus on Earth. They attempted to restore their old territory using the Aether which affected several realms, most specifically our own.

For matters involving space threats and wicked aliens, Fury should have known better and alerted Captain Marvel right away. She could have prevented them from entering the premises of Earth.

When Sokovia Was Destroyed


The battle in Sokovia ruined a lot of things, not only the entire city but lots of lives were lost as well. Captain Marvel could have made a surprise arrival and stopped Ultron from lifting the ground up in the sky. As mentioned in the second item, Fury could have called her and it would not have arrived to this situation.

When The Avengers Split Up

This is the situation where a divine intervention could have been applied. The break-up of the Avengers is the result of the Sokovia Accord, causing the members to turn their backs on each other. If Nick Fury asked Captain Marvel to come down and be the intervention between Team Cap and Team Iron Man, it would have made a really shocking scene.

On the flip side, she could have prevented their split-up by convincing that there’s so much imminent danger out in space and they better stick together. Imagine if they had known the threat of Thanos as early as Captain America: Civil War.
