Max Fury is a life model decoy prototype of Nick Fury stolen by Jake Fury (aka Scorpio), brother of Nick Fury. Scorpio and Zodiac used the Zodiac Key to reprogram the LMD and give it all of Nick Fury's memories. This LMD prototype was not a robot. It was a synthetic man. The prototype was designed to not have independent thoughts, but the Zodiac Key did something to grant the LMD prototype his own thoughts independent of the default artificial intelligence (AI) programming. After being caught by SHIELD at the fall of the Zodiac team, SHIELD scientists studied the LMD prototype to figure out how it could develop thoughts of its own. Even though the scientists (and Nick Fury) told it that it wasn't really Nick Fury, the LMD prototype kept blocking those thoughts and forgetting that he wasn't the real Nick Fury. Each time, the LMD prototype was told or shown that it wasn't Nick Fury, its mind would reset so that it would believe it was the real Nick Fury.
The LMD prototype escaped SHIELD custody numerous times and was caught and brought back to the SHIELD helicarrier prison each time. Ten years ago, after he escaped again, he was chased by SHIELD once more. As he was hiding and running from SHIELD, the LMD prototype did what Nick Fury would do, it continued to attack enemies such as HYDRA and AIM and foil terror plots.
When S.H.I.E.L.D. finally caught him, the LMD came face-to-face with the real Fury, who determined that he has to be destroyed, for the LMD having all his memories made him too dangerous. But John Steele helped the LMD escape by replacing him with another. He convinced the LMD, who he dubbed Max, to join the enigmatic Shadow Council.
