In his first appearance, he and S.H.I.E.L.D. tell Iron Man not to interfere with S.H.I.E.L.D.'s plan to reclaim the Orbital Station from the Living Laser. After a space assault failed, Fury considered to activate the station's self-destruct. After the Laser is defeated and remanded to a special cell, Nick Fury tells Iron Man that he's a loose cannon in S.H.I.E.L.D.'s eyes and they will take him down the minute he messes up, for good.
When the Helicarrier's engines are failing, Nick Fury has some S.H.I.E.L.D. agents send for Tony Stark so that he can repair them. The engines were built by Howard Stark. Tony ends up in an argument with Fury when he learns the the Living Laser is dying and that his father originally made weapons.
When AIM hired the Ghost to "steal" the Living Laser, Iron Man contacted them and led them to their headquarters so they can arrest them and get the Living Laser back. When S.H.I.E.L.D. arrives, the Living Laser gave his life to save Iron Man. Fury asks where the Living Laser is, he tells him "he's gone".
Nick Fury appears in season 2 where he sends the vibranium smugglers to the Vault prison and defends the Black Panther to the world leaders for his actions to reacquire the stolen vibranium. He is also seen at Justin Hammer's weapons presentation and leaves when his facility's electricity surges.
Nick Fury also grudgingly asks Iron Man for help retrieving a sample of an adamantium/vibranium alloy, fights the psychotic, Extremis-induced, former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, Mallen, and helps Iron Man fight his future grandson, Iron Man 2099. He learns Iron Man's true identity as Tony Stark during the Mallen incident.
In the second season finale, Nick Fury aided the heroes in fending off the Makluan invasion. Fury, along with Black Widow, Hawkeye, and Black Panther, they set timed explosives in the reactor core of the mothership, while Iron Man, War Machine, Rescue, and Hulk deal with the Makluan Overlord. When they blow, the whole mothership is destroyed and the invasion is stopped.
