I *do* like the idea of it being a series about a SHIELD recruitment team running around discovering a new superhero and/or supervillain in each episode. Slowly populate the MCU with "name" heroes and villains, regardless of whether they're Z-list all the way up to C-list (I'd save the B-listers and A-listers for feature films). A handful of the more popular "guest stars" would get recurring (or even permanent) roles on the series, but most will be one-and-done.
