We've also discussed the idea of her niche being the human liaison between Earth and the cosmic side of the MCU, especially if she were to work for SWORD, a la A:EMH. Unfortunately, Peter Quill might very well be filling that niche instead.
I don't think Quill will be in SWORD. Quill as a character more or less leaves Earth behind, and almost never comes back. In one issue of GoTG (or one of the minis associated with one of the cosmic events, I forget) he shows that he doesn't even know the name of Reed Richards Team, which shows you how little he's involved with Earth affairs.
