Project: Avengers

After the response of 9/11, the Hulk and Mutants, S.H.I.E.L.D. reactivated an old plan to assemble a group of extraordinary individuals of superhumans. A S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, Jasper Sitwell visited Hank Pym and Janet Pym to recruit them into The Avengers Program. Pym agrees on one condition, they fund his Ultron project. Then Iron Man's activities led S.H.I.E.L.D. to take an interest in him.

They approached Iron Man on several occasions and reviewed him for potential inclusion into a select group of individuals, but ultimately Iron Man withdrew from seeking his personal involvement stating that he works better alone. They then called on Tony Stark, Hank Pym and Bruce Banner for their scientific expertise even know Hank Pym is also recruited for the Avengers. Elsewhere, Agent Coulson tracks down Jane Foster, who is currently acting as the middleman between Earth and Asgard, so he can ask for Thor's help but couldn't get a hold of him eventually. The Fantastic Four were recruited for the Avenger program but the team turned it down, and even quit their regular job in order to explore the galaxy on their own terms.
