Hill stupidly wanted to stop the evacuation of the SHIELD facility, which would have cost countless lives; she let Barton and Loki walk right past her without a second thought about a man in outlandish garb being on-site; she worked with the WSC behind Fury's back, taking the side of short-sighted war criminals over the man who came up with the team that saved the world from conquest. That was all in line with Hill's behavior in the comics, so one must assume that her creators want her to be an object of scorn.

We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
