Although I enjoyed SHIELD's presence in the film and liked its action at the outset, Hill came across as incredibly stupid. First she wanted Fury to call off the evacuation of the facility because she wrongly assumed that it would be futile.

Then Hill let Clint, Selvig and a bunch of agents walk right past her with a strange, armed man leading them. Even when she asked who Loki was and Clint replied, "He didn't say," Hill idiotically just turned her back on them and went about her business. It wasn't until Fury radioed her that she realized that an alien had invaded the facility and was making off with the Tesseract. That big silver Tesseract case in Selvig's arms didn't even give her a freakin' clue.

It was probably unintentional, but Hill came off as a fool in that sequence. Or maybe, since she is the WSC's lackey trying to undermine Fury (in deleted scenes) Whedon meant to showcase the fact that she isn't as prepared to lead as she thinks.

It’s something that’s easy to take for granted, growing up in the United States as a white male, that my cinematic heroes look like me...It’s something that over the course of these ten years, having a certain amount of power over what type of movies are made and what type of actors we hire, I want everybody to have that feeling. We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
