Dissolution of the Avengers
After the dissolution of S.H.I.E.L.D. and turning over the directorship to Phil Coulson, Nick Fury decided to perform low-key missions with some of the remaining S.H.I.E.L.D. loyalists and allies. Fury remained in contact with Maria Hill, who was working for Stark Industries and the Avengers, and had her assemble a group of former S.H.I.E.L.D. agents such as Cameron Klein. During the Ultron Offensive, Fury contacted Coulson to active the Theta Protocol, which was the repair and maintenance of a Helicarrier, to save the citizens of Sokovia. He enlisted Hill, Klein, and several other agents to assist in this mission. After the foundation of the New Avengers Facility, Fury returned to his underground operations.
In 2018, during a drive in Atlanta while investigating a surge in alien activity, Nick Fury and Maria Hill received the information about the incident in Wakanda. As Hill was trying to contact James Rhodes, Fury asked her for updates on Tony Stark's location, to which she replied they found nothing despite extensive search around the globe.
Before Fury and Hill could contact Cameron Klein, they witnessed chaos in the city, caused by Thanos who used the Infinity Gauntlet to wipe out half of the all life across the universe. As Fury instructed Hill to call control for a code red, she suddenly disintegrated, so Fury had to use the Transmitter Pager and send out an emergency alert to Captain Marvel before fading away himself.
After Nick Fury was brought back by the Blip, he eventually tasked Talos and Soren to come to Earth and replace him and Maria Hill respectively while he took a leave of absence in space. In 2024, Quentin Beck and his crew began a campaign to gain public recognition for Beck, who disguised himself as a superhero that would eventually be nicknamed Mysterio. Mysterio successfully manipulated Talos into working together to stop the Elementals from destroying Earth. In Europe, he intercepted Peter Parker on his school trip to help combat the Elementals.

Spider-Man and Mysterio met in a final confrontation in London. This conflict signified the appearance of the Elemental Fusion, which attacked the Tower Bridge. Talos provided some assistance as Spider-Man eventually took down Mysterio and exposed his plot, which was to create the Elementals using drones to cast illusions. Afterwards, Talos contacted Fury and told him that he had given the E.D.I.T.H. glasses to Parker, declining to share details about his misplaced trust in Beck.
