Default Re: Which Company Wide Storyline Would You Like To See In MCU?

In my mind it works like this: the World Council is pushing SHIELD to register the heroes and Maria Hill backs them, going over Fury's head, and they decide to make her director over Fury. Tony supports the idea and as Black Widow, Falcon, and Hawkeye are agents of SHIELD they must comply. This splits the Avengers in half, which leads to their disassembling. However, what everyone thinks is Tony is really a shapeshifted Skrull posing as Tony to cause disorder amongst the heroes. It turns out what led the council to order the registration act in the first place was influenced by Skrulls in disguise. With the original Avengers split and disassembled, this leads to the formation of the New Avengers led by Cap.
The problem is, this requires mangling a ton of established characterization to do so, as well as a whole lot of wall-banger logic. Just because the original comic arc did that too, doesn't mean its a good idea to mimic that for a movie. Or to use that arc at all.
