Captain America had initially founded the Secret Avengers during the events of ‘Captain America: Civil War’; the team comprising of Black Widow, War Machine, The Falcon and others. Many fans claim that disbanding the Secret Avengers was a major missed opportunity and that it could have sprung off many interesting storylines such as the Secret Avengers taking on missions that go under the public radar. The Secret Avengers was supposedly formed by Captain America to oppose the Superhero Registration Act, which eventually led to them facing off against The Mighty Avengers themselves as well as the S.H.I.E.L.D.
