New Avengers

Director Fury was looking for a team leader for a new team, and Luke was offered the position. Luke was surprised, and asked why Fury choose him instead of someone else, Fury told him he had the qualities to be a good leader, and that he was also having problems finding other heroes with those abilities, since the ones he had in mind to recruit to the Academy were disappearing.

Luke accepted the position, and formed the New Avengers. Their first mission was to investigate what happened to the heroes Fury had told them were disappearing.[1]
