Maria Hill was Nick Fury's 2nd in command at S.H.I.E.L.D.. However, it was apparent early on that Hill lacked the experience, wisdom, maturity, foresight and political savvy to be a true leader. From the beginning she had a strong dislike of Iron Man, as well as his new team, the Avengers, believing that individuals like them should work under S.H.I.E.L.D. rather than be allowed to act on their own accord.

When Fury disappeared and Hill took charge of S.H.I.E.L.D., her personal prejudice against the Avengers resulted in Hill trying to arrest them during a city-wide fire fight between A.I.M. and Hydra when the Avengers refused to work for her, blinding her to the more immediate danger to the city. Even after the Avengers helped save the Helicarrier, she refused to show any gratitude and threatened Iron Man by telling him that she would petition to have government force the Avengers to serve S.H.I.E.L.D. or be arrested. Even though the safety of the city was on the line, Hill was so drunk on her own arrogance and need to be in control that she didn't care how many innocent people were hurt while she wasted time trying to force the Avengers to submit to her, behaving more like a spoiled, insufferable child than a true leader. She also displayed great cruelty towards Henry Pym for his part in creating Ultron when the robot eventually went rogue.

Hill's inability to compromise on rules and S.H.I.E.L.D regulations has often resulted in her wasting time with the Avengers rather than the real threat.
