You don't hammer out a sword if you don't intend to use it. By that same token, Maria Hill and Daisy Johnson didn't create the Secret Avengers just to have around.

SECRET AVENGERS writer Nick Spencer revealed quite a bit when running down the new team's Management, Operatives and Assets, but he tightens up a bit when asked about the actual missions.

While the writer remains mostly close-lipped about what exactly will go on in the team's early adventures, he does give readers an explanation of the team's overall intent and also gives the location of the first mission. The only way to get more information than that will be to pick the first issue up when it debuts on February 13.

Marvel.com: If the team had a mission statement, what would it be?

Nick Spencer: These are S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Avengers—they go places, and do things, that no other Avengers team could. They work in the shadows and behind the scenes, dealing with threats deemed untouchable by the rest of the world.

Marvel.com: When it comes to the actual missions, are the heroes identified as S.H.I.E.L.D. agents or are they going in without any markings or identifiers?

Nick Spencer: No identifiers, no ties, absolutely. Plausible deniability is maintained at every stage. That’s a big risk for our operatives: there’s nothing official, or public, about this. If they get apprehended, if a mission goes wrong—they are on their own.

Marvel.com: What can you tell us about the first mission the team is going on?

Nick Spencer: We’re going to Budapest! That’s it. All I’ll say for now.

Check out SECRET AVENGERS #1 by Nick Spencer and Luke Ross on February 13.

Budapest...Really? Sounds like Marvel Avengers movie is having a big influence over this first mission.
