With S.H.I.E.L.D. and the superhero community possibly compromised during the Secret Invasion of Earth, Nick Fury felt his only option was to personally develop and cultivate a potential pool of talent from which to select agents. He created a list of potential super-powered agents that no one knew about, thus they hadn't been exposed or exploited. Nick Fury organized them into three teams, White, Grey, and Black, each led by an established agent he could trust.
- Team White (Nick Fury's personal hammer):
- Daisy Johnson - Seismic waves (daughter of Mister Hyde) - (captain).
- Jerry Sledge - Enhanced Strength (son of Absorbing Man).
- Yo Yo Rodriguez - Enhanced Speed (daughter of Griffin).
- Eden Fesi - Universal Shaper.
- Sebastian Druid - Mystic (son of Doctor Druid) - ("decommissioned", re-join).
- Deceased members:
- Team Black (Recon, tasked with HYDRA):
- Team Grey (Attack and Response, tasked with Leviathan). All members of the Team Grey died on their mission on the HYDRA's base.
- Mikel Fury - son of Nick Fury - (captain)
- Sandra Murphy - Wielder of the Mace of Aeshma.
- Bryan Cole - Cybernetic Organism (possible relation to Wade Cole).
- Carlos Ayala - Telekinetic (possible relation of Hector Ayala).
- Red Webo - Wielder of the Creation Engine
- Jenny Monroe - Temporal Control (daughter of Gardner Monroe).
- Malcolm Monroe - Temporal Control (son of Gardner Monroe).
- Lynn Richards - Power Leech. Mutated S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent created by Mentallo
- Robert Martin - Organic Builder (possible relation of Chip Martin).
The original list included Layla Miller with her power listed as "Causality". She declined to join saying that it wouldn't work. Layla chose to remain affiliated with X-Factor, saying the mutants would need her.
