* SequelHook: Of a sorts. [[spoiler: The US President's interview with Maria Hill after she's named director of S.H.I.E.L.D. show's him saying that he's never liked superheroes and was looking for a way to keep them in check. This foreshadows the Superhuman Registration Act that would be the centerpiece of ''ComicBook/CivilWar.'']]


'''''Secret War''''' was a 2004 storyline of Marvel Comics, written by Creator/BrianMichaelBendis.

** Daisy ventures verrrrry close to MarySue territory with her hero worship of Nick Fury and subsequent owning of Wolverine.


* AuthorAppeal: Nick Fury handpicks a squad of superheroes to invade Latveria. They happen to all be characters Brian Bendis is openly fond of, especially ComicBook/{{Luke Cage|HeroForHire}}, DareDevil, and SpiderMan. Especially obvious when the files in the supplementary materials show Fury opted to pass on IronMan for the mission because he'd ask too many questions, which the entire team sans Black Widow and Daisy would do as well.

There are many minor villains in the Marvel Universe with technology-based powers. S.H.I.E.L.D. finally began to think: how can those villains [[CutLexLuthorACheck pay the huge costs of their technology, with their small petty crimes?]]. The answer: because Latveria (ruled by Lucia Von Bardas at the time) is financing them to cause mayhem in the U.S. Nick Fury explains all this to the president, but he is ignored: the president is in good diplomatic terms with Von Bardas. As he was sure that allowing the situation to continue would call for a huge disaster, Fury organizes a secret covert team to infiltrate Latveria and stage a coup against Von Bardas. Those heroes were Captain America, Spider-Man, Daredevil, Luke Cage, Wolverine, and S.H.I.E.L.D. agents Black Widow and Daisy Johnson. And when they had done it, Fury erased their memories of the whole thing, except for the two agents.
