Handicapping The Secret Avengers

Although we know one of the teams behind May's brand new Secret Avengers- that is, creative team Ed Brubaker and Mike Deodato- we don't know who those Secret Avengers are going to be- so I'm going to post a couple of the images we haven't already seen at this site with my guesses at various points during the week. The rest of you should feel free to guess in the comments. Excelsior!

Alright, so there's only one guy this could be, right? I mean, it's got to be Steve Rogers, right?

Well, maybe. It would make sense, given that Rogers seems to be one of Brubaker's favorite characters, and is also one of the ones he writes the best- other than the text though, there's really no reason to assume that it is Steve. Also, working in undercover would hardly seem to be Steve's MO- although he no longer wears the flag, I suspect he's still going to work best as a symbol. In fact, there's another Brubaker favorite character who has been doing a lot of leading by example recently- Daniel Rand, the Immortal Iron Fist. I have no reason to suspect this, really, and it might just be wishful thinking but, and this is a big but, with Luke Cage leading the Thunderbolts and Danny's ongoing on hiatus for the time being, I can't believe Brubaker would let him just sit there in character hell.
