In the history you know as chronicled in film, SHIELD Director Nick Fury was targeted for assassination by Hydra after requesting that the launch of Project Insight be delayed. Despite the best efforts of numerous well armed Hydra agents and even the Winter Soldier he managed to survive and elude his pursuers long enough to make contact with Captain America and give him a special SHIELD flash drive that had vital data that led to Rogers discovering Hydra's infiltration of SHIELD. But in another reality events took a different course. Fury, already suspcious of his superior Alexander Pierce, fakes his death early and falls off the grid, but not before passing along the flash drive to another indvidual outside of SHIELD and tasking them with delivering it to Captain America. Unfortunately, Hydra managed to learn that this individual had something valuable on them given to them by Fury and have decided they must be taken out of the picture instead. And so the resources and personnel brought to bear against Fury in the history you know is instead used to target Fury's courier. Can the courier survive the assassination attempt and ditch his pursuers long enough to complete their mission? Or will they fall before the onslaught of Hydra and its implacable Winter Soldier?

I, The Watcher, pose this question to you all:

What If One Of The Following Were Targeted For Assassination Instead Of Nick Fury?

A. Nolan Batman in the Batmobile

B. Speed Racer in the Mach 5

C. Movie Wolverine in Cyclop's Car

D. Michael Knight in KITT

E. Daniel Craig version of James Bond armed with every gadget any version of James Bond every used in composite Bond Car possessing every feature and capeability any car any version of Bond ever drove

As happened to Fury, each individual happens to be at an intersection in Washington D.C. when two police cars with assassins disguised as cops inside begin the assassination attempt. Other forces and eventually the Winter Soldier join in the attempt assuming the individual surives the initial attack.

Bonus Question: How do events change if a successful courier then teams up with Captain America and his allies to investigate what's on the flash drive and thwart Hydra once their plot is discovered?

A. Nolan Batman in the Batmobile
-I doubt the tumbler even has much of any effect from being rammed. It was more equivalent to a heavy armored car than simply an armored civilian automobile. The Winter Soldier's grenade thing isn't gonna be near enough either as Batman survived a hit from an rpg in the tumbler and the vehicle was still functional enough to access its bike function. And of course, the tumbler is armed with more powerful weapons than the WS ever used. And this is all assuming Batman is even in it and not just controlling it remotely.

B. Speed Racer in the Mach 5
-Don't know.

C. Movie Wolverine in Cyclop's Car
-Cyclop's had a car? I guess I forgot that part.

D. Michael Knight in KITT
-Too well armored.

While the car won't make it, Wolverine should do fine.
