This time, Nick Fury is fighting off against the Skrulls, an extraterrestrial shape-shifting alien species who are hiding on Earth.

Secret Invasion Episode 6: Nick Fury vs Gravik
Episode 5 of Secret Invasion ended with Nick Fury gearing up to go meet Gravik. Before leaving, he calls his Skrull wife, Priscilla, in what he thinks, could be his last call ever. Meanwhile, Sonya Falsworth calls Colonel Rhodes (Imposter Skrull) and tells him that Fury is headed straight to the president.
Fury is in Russia, wandering through a nuclear wasteland. He manages to make it to the Skrull hideout, but the radiation in the area takes a toll on his health. He walks through multiple rooms, swallowing iodine pills, before making it to Gravik’s hideout.
Gravik is standing in the center of the Super Weapon. He welcomes Nick Fury with open arms and even offers him a drink. Gravik rebukes Nick Fury for failing the Skrulls and not keeping the promise he made to them. Fury feels responsible and promises to give Gravik the vial, in exchange for him leaving the planet.
Meanwhile, Colonel Rhodes’ men are being hunted down by someone, that someone being Sonya Falsworth. She manages to catch Rhodes off guard and has a gun pointed at his head.

Secret Invasion Episode 6: Ultimate Super Skrulls
Nick Fury is not Nick Fury it was Gi’ah impersonating Nick Fury. The two Skrulls transform into different abominations of Avengers. In one scene, Gi’ah’s left arm is Hulk’s, and her right arm resembles Drax the destroyer. They are even capable of using the superpowers of Carol Danvers and Quicksilver.
At the hospital, the real Nick Fury shows up, President Ritson is confused because Fury tells him that Rhodes is a Skrull and that they should call off the attack on the Skrull hideout as it holds the world leaders in a biopod. Gi’ah manages to kill Gravik using her new superpowers.
Rhodes tries to act quickly and fire his weapon at Fury but Fury shoots him in the head first. President Ritson after seeing the Skrull’s body laying on the floor, quickly calls off the attack. Gi’ah helps to free Rhodes and others from their bio-pods at Skrull’s hideout.
A few days later, President Ritson launches an attack on all Skrulls living on Earth. Sonya Falsworth manages to find Gi’ah and offers her a deal. Nick Fury decides to go back and continue his work in SABER but this time, he takes his Skrull wife, Priscilla aka Varra with him.
