First Appearance: New Avengers#4 (April, 2005)

Powers/Abilities: Maria Hill has no known super-powers, but she has undergone extensive SHIELD training, the extent of which is unknown. She is an effective commander, processing information from numerous sources and effectively commanding hundreds of agents. She has been known to use various SHIELD devices in combat.

Height: 5'10"
Weight: 135 lbs.
Eyes: Brown
Hair: Black


(Invincible Iron Man#8 (fb) - BTS) - On a frozen day in Chicago, Maria Hill was born, though her mother died in childbirth. Estranged from her father, she went on to prove herself as an independent SHIELD agent.

(Invincible Iron Man#13 (fb) - BTS) - Growing up, Maria was constantly ordered around by authority figures, including her father, the principal who expelled her, and her Marines commanding officer.

(Secret War#5/2 (fb) - BTS) - Originally from Chicago, Maria Hill, SHIELD agent, was put on a difficult duty in Madripoor and did very well, attracting the attention of the upper-level agents. She was recruited after a few years, as she later learned because she was not a Nick Fury loyalist, to become future SHIELD director, and made a level 9 agent.

(Mighty Avengers I#12 (fb)) - Hill woke up in her private quarters on the Helicarrier to see Nick Fury standing there. She recounted meeting him in Madripoor once and cut to the chase with him. Fury told her that she was surrounded by the unfamiliar and recommended that she start using Life Model Decoys, at least 12. As he rushed out, she ordered SHIELD to chase him, but he escaped with a cloaking watch that she hadn't gotten yet.

(Iron Man: Enter the Mandarin#4 (fb) ) - At some point, Agent Hill was impressed by Tony Stark's speed in passing the Helicarrier's encryptions as Agents Burroughs and Sands stood by.

(New Avengers I#4) - Special Agent Maria Hill was appointed acting Deputy Director of SHIELD, Super Power Division Class 8. After dozens of super-villains escaped from the Raft, Hill was contacted by Captain America, Iron Man, Spider-Man, Luke Cage, and Spider-Woman (a level 7 SHIELD agent), and the heroes informed her they were reforming the Avengers. Hill told them no, but Captain America's special Full Champion License, of which Hill was previously unaware, gave him to right to do so. She spoke with Captain America privately about the sharing of information, but she remained reluctant.

(New Avengers I#6) - SHIELD tracked the source of the prison break to a rogue SHIELD faction operating in the Savage Land. Hill considered this an act of war and authorized the use of lethal force against the operation. The Helicarrier repositioned and destroyed the entire operation with firepower. Hill apologized to the New Avengers team (now including Wolverine) for almost killing them, and promised that SHIELD would continue looking into the rogue faction.

(New Avengers I#7) - Hill accompanied SHIELD, Captain America, and Iron Man in finding Sentry, who believed he'd murdered his wife, Lindy Reynolds, and learned he hadn't.

(New Avengers I#8) - After Lindy and comic book writer Paul Jenkins failed to connect with Sentry, he disappeared. Hill had SHIELD track Sentry to Connecticut and joined with the Avengers, Fantastic Four (Human Torch (Storm), Invisible Woman, Mister Fantastic, Thing), X-Men (Beast (McCoy), Colossus, Cyclops, Shadowcat, White Queen), Doctor Stephen Strange, Sub-Mariner, and a team of Inhumans (Black Bolt, Gorgon, Karnak, Lockjaw, Medusa) to apprehend Sentry.

(New Avengers I#9) - The assembled heroes and SHIELD battled the massive attacking Void.

(New Avengers I#10) - The Void was defeated and the wounded tended to.

(Marvel Knights Spider-Man#18) - Hill picked up Owl, who surrendered to SHIELD in fear of the Absorbing Man. She worked together with Spider-Man, who fought Absorbing Man while she picked up Owl with a helicopter.

(Daredevil II#77) - Hill was approached by SHIELD agent Black Widow (Natasha Romanova), who was requesting SHIELD’s intervention in a complicated legal case against Daredevil, who’d been exposed as Matthew Murdock. Hill saw Murdock’s recent acts as illegal, however, and refused to have SHIELD aid him. Black Widow was put off by Hill’s sardonic nature.

(Secret War#5) - Hill angrily confronted SHIELD agent Daisy Johnson, who was an eighteen year old level 10 agent, about her involvement in Nick Fury's "Secret War," an illegally organized response to a Latverian terrorist attack on United States soil. Johnson resisted Hill's line of questioning, and claimed to not know where Fury was in hiding at.

(Civil War Files#1 - BTS) - In a report to the President, Iron Man listed Maria Hill as being an unsympathetic character to the plight of superheroes.

(Secret War#5/2) - Hill had her first communication with the president and questioned him about her unexpected appointment to director and Fury's 'Secret War.'

(Captain America V#16 - BTS) - Hill allowed Sharon Carter to take Captain America as back-up on a mission to apprehend Crossbones and Sin, though it was against Hill's better judgment.

(New Avengers#42 (fb)) - Hill questioned Spider-Woman (secretly the Skrull Veranke) about her activity as an Avenger and her status as a Hydra agent, but the heroine grew defensive and reminded Hill of how few people were loyal to her.

(New Avengers I#16) - After conferring with Iron Man over several recent developments, including the public revelation of the new Avengers team, a recent contingent of heroes in Genosha, and the depowering of millions of mutants (which SHIELD had learned more about from the captive Phantazia), Hill and SHIELD responded to a threat in North Pole, Alaska, where a humanoid had crashed, killing many. SHIELD Agent Davis and others were sent in to investigate, and were seemingly killed. Canadian heroes Alpha Flight (Guardian (James Hudson), Major Mapleleaf, Puck (Judd), Puck (Yu), Sasquatch, Shaman, Vindicator (Heather Hudson)) were also downed by the humanoid. After firing one agent for being sarcastic, Hill conferred with the president and reluctantly agreed to contact the Avengers for help.

(New Avengers I#17) - Hill called the Avengers into Detroit to meet the humanoid. She conferred with Iron Man that they still had no reference match on the humanoid, and watched as Iron Man went into battle. She was furious when Ms. Marvel interrupted the battle, attacking the humanoid. Captain America demanded the aid of SHIELD agent Daisy Johnson, who Hill was reluctant to allow due to Johnson's loyalty to Fury.

(New Avengers I#18) - While the Avengers fought against the humanoid, Spider-Man and the Vision (of Young Avengers) joined Hill on the Helicarrier to examine the humanoid's various energy sources. Using various intel, they realized the humanoid was one Michael Pointer, a mutant from North Pole, and that he had absorbed the powers of all the world's depowered mutants.

(New Avengers I#19) - Hill ordered SHIELD's psi-powered operatives to read Spider-Man's mind about House of M, and shut off communications with Iron Man when he realized their intentions. Spider-Man refused to give them information, so Hill had agent Hook put Spider-Man to sleep, and subdued the Vision with other methods. Still monitoring the battle with Pointer, who was now in space fighting Sentry, Hill distracted Spider-Man long enough for the psi-division to procure the information from his mind directly. Spider-Man and the arriving Avengers, particularly Captain America, were furious, but their attentions were soon returned to Pointer, who traveled to Genosha.

(New Avengers I#20) - While the Avengers fought Pointer, who became known as the Collective and who had taken over the form of Magneto, Hill fought against the president's pressure to vaporize the entire island to be done with the threat. She even resisted a direct order to do so, giving the Avengers one last chance to handle Collective with SHIELD's aid, and they successfully depowered him. Hill took Collective into custody and arrested Magneto, who was placed on a helicopter that was soon blown up under mysterious circumstances. Hill took the copy of Magneto's memoirs found on the island.

(Marvel Team-Up III#20) - While Captain America was tended to by medical technicians, Hill upbraided him for losing a reality-altering ring he was to have brought to SHIELD custody.

(Marvel Team-Up III#22) - Iron Maniac, a Tony Stark from an alternate dimension, escaped on board the SHIELD Helicarrier. He turned an LMD into armor and attacked SHIELD Agents to escape. Hill thought SHIELD could handle it, but ordered the New Avengers in as they were present. Iron Maniac escaped regardless.

(Astonishing X-Men III#13) – Hill met with S.W.O.R.D.’s Agent Brand, who Hill considered to be a thug and a lawbreaker. Hill tried calling Brand down for her actions, but was unsuccessful as the abrasive Brand wouldn’t hear it.

(Irredeemable Ant-Man#6 (fb)) - Against her best wishes, Hill authorized Agent Brent Carson, despite his wounds, to be in charge of tracking down the rogue Ant-Man (Eric O'Grady).

(Iron Man: Titanium!#1/3) - Hill, aboard the Helicarrier, coordinated civilian evacuation and fallout with several SHIELD teams, one led by Agent Farrell, while Iron Man battled an AIM-enhanced version of Ultimo. She argued with Iron Man about how to contain the threat, and he ultimately defeated it by using dangerous and unauthorized technology against it. When Iron Man asked Hill out, she angrily rejected him.

(Captain America V#22 (fb) - BTS) - Hill sought out Sharon Carter’s advice on how best to approach Captain America about the registration act. Hill was concerned that Captain America was such a public figure that he may become a rallying symbol for other heroes if he were to turn against them. Carter, Captain America’s SHIELD liaison and love interest, advised Hill against approaching the hero.

(Civil War#1) - Hill met with Captain America aboard the Helicarrier to determine his views on the pending Super-Human Registration Act. They talked over the potential of certain heroes who may resist the laws, and Hill revealed to Captain America that he may be required to hunt down any dissenters. He argued with her, causing several armed men Hill had prepared to surround him. When Captain America refused to stand down, Hill ordered the men to take the hero down with tranquilizers, but Captain America escaped through a window.

(New Avengers I#21) - Hill accompanied an SHIELD division to Henry Pym's apartment to attempt to apprehend Captain America and Falcon, but the heroes escaped. Hill complimented Pym on a job well-done, and ordered medical attention for his injuries.

(Civil War#2) - After SHIELD picked up several apprehended villains, Hill determined that Captain America had rallied other heroes to his side and that the group was working to take down as many villains as possible.

(New Avengers#22) - Hill sent a squad of Cape-Killers, including Agent Whitman, to apprehend Luke Cage. Cage fought against them, and several people in the neighborhood as well as Captain America, Falcon, and Daredevil (Rand) aided him in escaping. A hologram of Hill appeared before Cage, stating that he was making things worse, but Cage crushed the hologram and joined the resistance.

(Civil War#3) - Hill watched, holding the specially prepared “Codename Lightning” in abeyance along with a contingent of SHIELD agents, while the pro-registration heroes confronted the gathered anti-registration heroes. When a fight broke out, she released “Codename Lightning,” which was a clone of Thor.

(New Avengers I#23) - Hill used a Nick Fury LMD (Life Model Decoy) to attempt to gather information from Spider-Woman, but the heroine deciphered that Hill was behind it and destroyed the LMD. A group of agents apprehended Spider-Woman and brought her aboard the Helicarrier, and confronted on the news she'd learned from Iron Man that Spider-Woman had been acting as an agent of SHIELD, the Avengers, and Hydra, simultaneously. Hill, with Iron Man standing by, tried taunting Spider-Woman and planned on holding her accountable for her actions. When a Hydra faction attacked, an EMP burst caused the Helicarrier to lose power and almost crash; by the time power was regained, Spider-Woman had been rescued by Hydra agents. During the brief battle, Hill fired on Hydra soldiers, who returned fire, hitting her body suit and knocking her to the ground.

(Civil War#4 - BTS) - The Thor clone killed Goliath as the anti-registration heroes escaped.

(Avengers IV#18 (fb)) – Hill ordered Goliath’s body to be removed.

(Civil War: Young Avengers & Runaways#2) - Hill traveled to the 'Cube,' a research facility where the Warden was developing various super-human agents as part of the war's 'villain rehabilitation program.' The Warden acted surprised to see Hill, and put her off with his various theories on how to break villains and win the war. He showed her his latest project, Noh-Varr, an extradimensional Kree soldier, and authorized him to send Noh-Varr after the Runaways, a group of unregistered heroes.

(Civil War: Young Avengers & Runaways#3 - BTS) - When the Warden failed to check in, Hill tried calling him, but he would not take her calls.

(Captain America V#22 (fb)) - Carter angrily approached Hill for not listening to her advice about Captain America. Hill explained her reasons, then ordered Carter to work to apprehend Captain America, threatening to demote Carter if she didn’t follow orders.

(Captain America V#22 (fb) - BTS) - Hill also ordered Dum-Dum Dugan to lead a group of Cape-Killers against Captain America.

(Captain America V#22 - BTS) - Carter intentionally aided Captain America in getting away from SHIELD, and Hill ordered Carter to get a psychiatric evaluation from an agency psychiatrist (secretly Doctor Faustus). Dugan failed in his mission as well.

(Civil War: Young Avengers & Runaways#4) - Hill kept sending communications to the Warden when the 'Cube' disappeared from the grid. She was unaware that Noh-Varr had failed to capture the Runaways and had taken over the 'Cube,' and the Warden had betrayed her.

(Civil War: Front Line#8/2) - Hill learned that Speedball had survived the Stamford disaster and had been shot by James Stricker (father of one of the deceased in Stamford) in a crowd with his lawyer, She-Hulk, standing nearby. While on his way to the hospital, his powers seemingly resurged causing the transport to crash and She-Hulk to be temporarily blinded. Hill angrily confronted She-Hulk about these events, thinking She-Hulk was hiding something. Hill worked to handle the fall-out, learning that Speedball's brief cell-mate from jail, Hickey, disappeared from jail. She then followed up with Mister Fantastic on Speedball's recovery process, planning on returning the unregistered hero to jail as soon as possible.

(Civil War#5) - Hill authorized regular patrols of SHIELD agents in the streets of New York, which helped crime stay down. When Invisible Woman and Human Torch moved to join the anti-registration heroes, some of her agents tried to stop them. She also supervised the nanite-controlled army of super-villains assembled, called the Thunderbolts, who could, if necessary, be used to apprehend renegade heroes. When Spider-Man went rogue, she sent some of the villains after him.

(New Avengers I#25) - When Kenny, designer of the Capekiller armor and employee of Iron Man, attacked Stark Tower, Hill and SHIELD were clued in due to an SHIELD guard being downed. They rushed in to help, and Hill decided to complete the mission herself, growing angry at her fellow agents for questioning her decision as Fury had always gone on missions. Equipped with dematerializing spray, a cloaking device, antigravity shoes, pellets that would absorb explosions, and a gun, she headed in and saw Jarvis, the Avengers' butler, wounded, and Kenny standing over a downed Iron Man. She shot Kenny, then threw the pellets at an exploding antimatter generator he'd left. The explosion washed over them. Later, Hill watched "A Few Good Men" and reflected on why she'd been chosen from this post. She met with Iron Man and told him that he should be in charge of SHIELD, and that she felt that decision would piss off all the right people.

(Wolverine III#47) - Maria Hill had Agent Herrick Goldman show in the captured Wolverine, who had tried to apprehend Nitro (responsible for the Stamford disaster) and to break into Damage Control to confront Walter Declun, who'd sponsored Nitro's power increase, hoping to profit from the war. Nitro had been captured by the Atlanteans, and Hill informed Wolverine that Nitro was to remain there and that Declun was to be left alone. She argued with Wolverine about SHIELD's motives.

(Blade III#5) - Hill authorized Blade, who'd recently been recruited, to hunt down Wolverine, but Blade soon returned, stating that he refused to do so, but that he would hunt down vampires for SHIELD

(Captain America V#24) - At the advice of the agency psychiatrist and Dugan, Hill agreed to let Carter remain in the line of duty, and she assigned Carter to the task force set to bring down Nick Fury, not knowing (but perhaps suspecting) that Carter was allied with and in contact with Fury.

(Irredeemable Ant-Man#3) - Maria Hill visited SHIELD agent Brent Carson, who was wounded after a Helicarrier crash, alongside Henry Pym. They authorized Carson to don a suit of Ant-Man armor in order to track down a renegade Ant-Man.

(Civil War: War Crimes#1) - Hill gave Iron Man orders to broker a deal with the incarcerated Kingpin, whose connections she hoped would help end the war.

(Iron Man IV#14) - Hill attended a meeting at Stark Tower with Iron Man, Mr. Fantastic, Ms. Marvel, Bishop, and Radioactive Man, working to track down Captain America's town.

(Blade III#9) - Hill reluctantly provided weaponry and information to Blade in London, though she was not able to access much information due to her demotion.

(Civil War#6) - On an Arizonan base, Hill, with Yellowjacket, supervised the training of a new team and discussed the implementation of the 50-States Initiative.

(Civil War#7) - The Civil War ended after Captain America surrendered. Iron Man appointed Maria Hill to be Deputy Director of SHIELD, serving underneath him, as he was now acting Director. He treated Hill with contempt as he gave a tour of the Helicarrier to Miriam Sharpe.

(True Believers#5 (fb) - BTS) - Seeking a peaceful end to the Civil War, SHIELD designed the Anathema project, contracting with civilian Max Trent. Anathema was a neurotoxin designed to alter a subject's moral centers, and they planned to use it only once, on Captain America, but he turned himself in first and the project was scrapped.

(True Believers#2 (fb) - BTS) - Hill later attended the funeral of Max Trent.

(True Believers#3 (fb)) - Trent's daughter, Mavis, returned to her job at SHIELD, but an outburst at a meeting caused Hill and Stark to worry.

(True Believers#4 (fb)) - Hill and other SHIELD agents confronted Agent Ozzie Tanaka for leaking a SHIELD weapon to gamers. Tanaka was fired.

(X-Men Annual II#1) – Hill oversaw a failed SHIELD attempt to restore the mind of the mutant Northstar and to help his twin Aurora recover from debilitating schizophrenia. She agreed to let X-Men Cable, Mystique, and Rogue aboard the Helicarrier, reluctantly honoring a promise Fury had made to let them try with Northstar. Hill let the mutants keep their weapons, but warned them that telepaths were near if they tried anything violent. Though posturing, she agreed to let them try a new technique on the twins and left he X-Men to it. The villainous Acolytes (Exodus, Frenzy, Random, Tempo) attacked the Helicarrier, successfully boarding it despite the ship’s offensive weaponry and shields, and Hill immediately worked to lock down the ship. Exodus approached her violently, leaving her to summon Agent Decker, ordering that Exodus be taken down by their psi-unit. Hill was shocked when Exodus defeated the telepaths and, tied up, was forced to watch as Exodus used SHIELD machinery to construct a new mutant-detecting Cerebro unit. Exodus altered the machine to detect possible future mutants, and discovered there were none. The Acolytes left in a hurry, their plan failed. Rogue untied Hill who ordered all of the mutants, including the healed Northstar and Aurora, off of her ship immediately.

(Marvel Comics Presents II#2/3 (fb) - BTS) - Hill hired the Taskmaster to infiltrate the Helicarrier to test their security levels, offering an authorized presidential pardon in return.

(Marvel Comics Presents II#2/3) - Taskmaster infiltrated the Helicarrier, knocking out agent T. McWilliams as he did so. After he fought Dugan and Carter, he attacked Hill in her own quarters, infuriating her. She ordered that he be released, revealing to her agents her duplicity. Back in her quarters, she saw a threatening message written on her mirror.

(Fallen Son: The Death of Captain America#1) - Hill tried convincing Stark that they couldn't hold Crossbones without more proof, but Stark demanded to keep him aboard the Helicarrier until they had the truth.

(Mighty Avengers#1) - Aboard the new Helicarrier, Hill monitored bizarre natural disasters all over the world, and reported them to Stark.

(Mighty Avengers#3) - After the Mighty Avengers had explained to her that Ultron was behind the natural disasters, the Helicarrier was taken over by Ultron, who tried to crash it onto New York City. Sentry, Ms. Marvel and Wonder Man stopped the fall, but Hill was knocked unconscious. Black Widow, the only level 10 agent on board, took over command on the Helicarrier.

(Mighty Avengers#5) - Hill woke up with a head injury and reclaimed control of the Helicarrier. She got her wound dressed and discussed tactics angrily with Ares and Black Widow in their battle against Ultron. Though she was initially reluctant, she agreed with Ares' plan to destroy Ultron. Hill was furious when she found a nuclear warhead launched and helped instruct Ms. Marvel on how to disarm it.

(Mighty Avengers#6) - Hill, her head still bandaged, aided SHIELD and the Mighty Avengers in defeating Ultron. Ares shrank to miniature size and uploaded a virus into Ultron, w hich returned control of the nuclear devices to the proper authorities. When Sentry came unhinged, Hill was unable to contact him, but Ms. Marvel took him down. Finally, Ultron was defeated and Stark returned to normal.

(Mighty Avengers#7) - Hill notified Stark about an attack of the Venom symbiote on New York City.

(Ms. Marvel II#13) - Hill was shocked when Stark informed her that Ms. Marvel had been given some agents, including Baines and Locke, in a SHIELD-sanctioned operation.

(Black Panther IV#26) - When Black Panther and Storm pulled a hidden ship from the river in New York, Hill was chastised by Stark for not having found it before.

(Black Panther IV#27) - Maria Hill informed Black Panther of the Fantastic Four that an being from the Negative Zone was in the Baxter Building. She offered aid, but Black Panther hung up on her.

(Iron Man IV#15) - Hill attended a meeting with Stark, Dum-Dum Dugan, and Sal Kennedy to discuss the recent increase in worldwide terrorist attacks. She was put off by Kennedy's brash humor, and astonished when Stark silenced her and Dugan agreed with Kennedy's ideas.

(Iron Man IV#18) - When the SHIELD Helicarrier came under attack from a foreign biological threat that was killing and then controlling SHIELD agents, Hill and Dugan conferred with Stark about the hopelessness of the situation. Stark ordered Hill to work on evacuating those still alive while he saw the threat contained and the Helicarrier safely landed in Korea. Despite taking a nasty fall, Hill saw the personell evacuated, though Sal Kennedy was among the dead. She later conferred with Stark about who was responsible for the attack.

(Silent War#4) - Hill supervised the gathering of several Marines' recruits, and authorized subjecting them to the Terrigen mists in order to lead a covert attack against the Inhumans on the moon. Doctor Cartwright informed Hill that the procedure would be lethal, and the soldiers agreed to participate even when Hill told them this news.

(Silent War#5) - Hill supervised a battle between the Mighty Avengers and the Inhumans (who managed to get the Crystals they sought and escape). She advised that the seeming withdrawal of the Inhumans was only in preparation of Black Bolt's vocal attack. Later, she and Stark planned a direct assault on Attilan with the mutated marines.

(Silent War#6) - Hill supervised the powered Marines' war on Attilan, and authorized the destruction of the city.

(Ms. Marvel II#15) - Hill showed up at Ms. Marvel's apartment aboard the heroine's new mini-carrier, and confronted her about her new illicit dealings with Iron Man, and the new squad Ms. Marvel had formed. After putting Ms. Marvel in her place (and even suggesting that Ms. Marvel and Tony Stark were intimate), Hill sent Ms. Marvel's squad against AIM, reporting news of the recent deaths of SHIELD agents and refusing to tie up SHIELD's resources in this mission.

(New Avengers I#28) - In a ploy to trap the renegade New Avengers, Hill, alongside Agent Jones, looked over a fake Captain America (who'd recently been killed in battle) in the Raft.

(New Avengers I#29 (fb)) - Hill accompanied the Mighty Avengers and SHIELD agents as they tried to track down the renegade New Avengers at Doctor Strange's mansion, which had been bought out by Starbucks.

(Sub-Mariner III#1 (fb)) - Hill and Stark viewed the vast destruction of Bentonville, Kansas by (seemingly) Atlantean forces.

(Sub-Mariner III#2 (fb)) - Hill accompanied Iron Man and SHIELD in surrounding Atlantis, giving Sub-Mariner an ultimatum and telling him that no Atlantean would leave the city until everything was resolved. Sub-Mariner ended up charging through to the surface, however, fighting Iron Man on his way. Hill and Stark reported to the furious authorities on the surface who said they would handle the Sub-Mariner.

(Sub-Mariner III#3 (fb)) - Outside Atlantis, Hill and Stark wondered why the Atlantean military wasn't reacting. Stark left Hill in charge while he went to investigate.

(Sub-Mariner III#6 (fb)) - Hill tried asking Stark how his confrontation with Sub-Mariner went, but he blew her off.

(Sub-Mariner III#1) - Hill and Stark, aboard a SHIELD ship, looked at Atlantis, seemingly devastated and destroyed.

(Sub-Mariner III#3) - Hill and Stark reported to the military about the devastation in Atlantis, and they agreed that it was suspicious.

(Sub-Mariner III#5) - Hill and Stark delivered the news that the corpse was not the Sub-Mariner's to the government.

(Ms. Marvel II#18 - BTS) - After contacting Agent Sum, Hill sent Initiative recruits Machine Man and Sleepwalker (whose host body is Rick Sheridan) to bolster the rank's of Ms. Marvel's squad. Ms. Marvel was annoyed, thinking Hill was trying to deliberately annoy her.

(World War Hulk#3) - Hill reported to the President that General Ross' army had failed against the Hulk. She briefed the President on Sentry and encouraged him to activate Sentry as nukes would only make the Hulk stronger.

(Punisher War Journal II#10 - BTS) - Former SHIELD agent, G.W. Bridge, called SHIELD, asking for Hill or Jasper Sitwell, for help with the apprehension of some villains.

(Wolverine III#57) - SHIELD, including Stark and Hill, investigated the crash site of a mock-Helicarrier and found the braindead body of Wolverine. They determined that he was targetted by the terrorist group Scimitar.

(Iron Man: Director of SHIELD Annual#1) - Hill attended a meeting with Stark, Gaffer, and others about the political situation in Madripoor, where Madame Hydra was the country's head.

(Iron Man IV#21) - Hill, Dugan, and Stark heard about a deadly attack by Graviton in Nebraska, injuring Initiative graduate Paragon and causing hero Gadget to go missing. Hill briefed Stark on the case, informing him that Graviton had escaped from prison and Captain Ultra, the Nebraska Initiative team leader, had not been present at the battle. Stark and Hill later discovered that Gadget had been crushed by Graviton. Stark ordered Hill to secure Graviton, who was in police custody, into SHIELD custody, using force if necessary.

(Iron Man IV#22) - Hill got Graviton into custody, but reported to Stark that Graviton was in an induced coma and that it was medically dangerous to awaken him, but Stark demanded it be done anyway. Once it was done, she summoned Stark, then watched the interrogation. She confessed to Dugan that she was very worried about Stark and how much time he was spending in his Iron Man armor. She then told Stark that there were still way too many unanswered questions about the case.

(Iron Man IV#23) - Hill grew more and more concerned about Stark over the following days, especially after Graviton seemingly committed suicide. She expressed her concerns to a governing body, including Raymond Sikorski, Valerie Cooper, and Jack Kooning. Stark was later relieved of his command.

(New Avengers I#37) - Hill impatiently questioned the Wrecker, after he and others were apprehended following a battle with the Avengers. He refused to give information about the Hood, his commander, and wanted a lawyer, which, Hill informed him, he had no right to. Later, the Hood broke in and freed the captive villains, killing several SHIELD agents.

(New Avengers Annual I#2) - A disgusted Hill learned that members of the Hood's gang, including Chemistro (Calvin Carr), Madame Masque, the Wizard (Bentley Wittmann), and the Wrecking Crew (Bulldozer, Piledriver, Thunderball, and Wrecker) had broken out of the Raft.

(Iron Man IV#25) - When Hill heard Dugan authorizing SHIELD forces to the suspended Stark, she asserted her authority and asked what Dugan was doing.

(Iron Man IV#26) - Hill learned from Dugan that the Mandarin had deployed a deadly biological weapon on the world. When she heard that Stark, who was still relieved of his duties due to his mental imbalance, was the source, she questioned its truth. She listened to reason from Dugan and ordered the Helicarrier to deploy to Omaha to handle the threat, putting aside her own reservations. They found Stark there battling the Mandarin and Hill reluctantly released the EVH, a black hole device that would contain the biological threat. Though Dugan offered to take full responsibility for the act, Hill agreed to. She soon heard from Gaffer that there seemed to be nothing alive in the event perimeter, including Stark.

(Iron Man IV#27) - Hill and Dugan, aboard the SHIELD Helicarrier, managed to find Stark alive, having been thrown clear in his armor miles from the blast site. Before they could retrieve him, they were surrounded by the United States military and ordered to stand down for questioning.

(Iron Man IV#28) - Hill, Dugan, and Stark were brought up on charges by the Commission on Super Human Activities at the United Nations for their actions. Stark gave a rousing speech, after which they waited for the verdict, continuing to narrow down the whereabouts of the Mandarin secretly. The CSA found Stark guilty and removed him from office, which made Hill the acting director of SHIELD again. She immediately used her authority to put the UN under lockdown, claiming to be protecting it from external attack. Though the CSA was furious, this gave Stark time to stop the Mandarin. Stark was later reinstated as director.

After investigating the surrounding residual radiation, they were approached by the Winter Guard (Crimson Dynamo, Darkstar, Red Guardian, Ursa Major), who sought to take the Abomination's body. A brief fight between the two sides broke out, but Hill stayed on the sidelines.

(Hulk III#2) - Aboard the Hellicarrier, Hill showed Stark and She-Hulk a prototype of the gun used to kill the Abomination. When the Red Hulk attacked them and knocked out She-Hulk, the reluctant Hill was ordered to get the heroine to safety. The Helicarrier soon came crashing down.

(Hulk III#3) - Hill, Stark, and She-Hulk walked away from the site of the Helicarrier crash in New Jersey.

(Invincible Iron Man#4) - A blonde Hill chided Stark for utilizing revolutionary technology to save the life of his secretary, Virginia "Pepper" Potts, while not making it available to SHIELD. As they argued, she insulted his moustache and he her hair. She watched his plan to release Iron Man technology on the black market through Ed Gross, a costume collector, to lead Stane into a trap. Hill, interrupting an intimate moment between Stark and Potts, let him know the technology had just come online. They surmised Stane was planning to attack four major Stark Industries plants across the world.

(Invincible Iron Man#5) - Hill aided Stark and Potts, who Hill was frustrated about being involved, in tracking down Stane. Hill monitored the evacuation procedures of the four targeted plants and heard the Valencia, Spain, plant explode. Stane soon attacked Stark savagely, seemingly killing him.

(Iron Man: Director of SHIELD#29) - Aboard the Helicarrier, Hill and Dugan supervised a mission over the country of Kirikhstan as Stark lead SHIELD Alphas (Carstairs, Colletti, Farrell, Gomez)in searching for a WMD. They briefed Stark on the country's political situation with Russia and teased that he would assume control in time. Gomez was wounded in a blast and SHIELD responded while Stark disarmed a nano-sized WMD. A terrorist message from Nasim Rahimov then appeared and Hill questioned Stark about him.

(Iron Man: Director of SHIELD#30) - Hill and Dugan, on the Helicarrier above Kirikhstan, interfaced with Iron Man as he deactivated miniature nuclear devices. He told them of his history with Rahimov as he and the Alpha Unit continued responding to the situation. They battled a Rahimov-directed Paladin, who helped launch a mysterious device at the Helicarrier.

(Iron Man: Director of SHIELD#31) - Hill, Dugan, and Gaffer monitored the vastly expanding Overkill Horn device over Kirikhstan, noting its exponential growth and deadly potential. Dugan teased Hill about wanting operation command, and she was disgusted when they learned Agent Nicolas Weir was behind the device. When the Horn demanded Stark, Hill worked to find him, while authorizing Dugan to lead his Flying Commandos unit against the Horn, which cybernetically killed and took over Alphas Colletti and Carstairs. Iron Man arrived to fight the Horn and negotiate with Weir as Hill and Dugan learned that Weir had activated the nuclear weapons aboard the Helicarrier, giving them less than three minutes to live.

(Iron Man: Director of SHIELD#32) - Hill called Stark for help with the nuclear countdown and he was able to delay it long enough to stop Weir. After debriefing Paladin, SHIELD tracked down Rahimov and Stark and Weir rushed to stop him. Hill and Dugan had to blow the place up on Stark's order to stop him.

Hill tried protecting the president when an illusion of monsters leapt at them, then a super fast Yo-Yo grabbed Hill and the rest of the Secret Warriors took her captive. Nick Fury revealed himself, telling her it was a test, and learning she was an LMD. Pleased that she'd followed his advice, he and his Warriors departed.

(Iron Man: Iron Protocols#1) - Hill informed Stark, aboard the Helicarrier, that the scientists of Project Ararat were in danger, and Stark rushed off to handle it. She continued to provide support for him during his battle with a rogue artificial intelligence, then visited him in medical after the battle was over.

(Secret Invasion#4) - The Jarvis-Skrull demanded Hill's surrender, but she refused.

(Secret Invasion#5) - Despite the Skrulls' threats, Hill continued making sarcastic statements until they shot her repeatedly, realizing she was an LMD. The real Hill shot several of them, initiated a self-destruct sequence, adn flew away from teh explosion on her jetpack.

(Secret Invasion#8 - BTS) - The Skrulls were defeated, the Skrull queen killed by a shot from Norman Osborn. Tony Stark was blamed for the Skrull infiltration and Osborn was put in his place. SHIELD itself was soon dismantled, leaving Hill out of a job.

(Invincible Iron Man#8) - Fired, Hill walked out of SHIELD with her possessions, ignoring the taunts of Walsh and Donnegan as she departed, not a part of Osborn's new HAMMER. After they scanned her on the way out, she met Stark, who flew her off in a flying car, telling her they had their entire careers ahead of them. They met with Potts at Funtime, Inc. and ate takeout as they discussed the fate of the government. Stark revealed he'd tampered with HAMMER's computers and that he'd downloaded the Registration Database into his own brain to keep it from Osborn.

(Mighty Avengers#20) - Hill attended the funeral of the Wasp, who was killed in the final Skrull battle. There, she avoided contact with Osborn and his new right hand, Victoria Hand.

(Invincible Iron Man#9) - At their new "Funtime, Inc." hideout, Stark explained to Potts and Hill his plan to erase crucial plans out of his brain, though it could hurt him. Hill tried talking sense into him and refused to help him, but he tricked her into entering command prompts into the system. She soon returned, with groceries, to her apartment in Georgetown, Washington, DC, but was attacked at her apartment by HAMMER agents. She nearly escaped by using a fire extinguisher and seizing a gun, but they overpowered her and knocked her out. On the ship, however, Osborn gave the order to kill her. She narrowly escaped by killing the guards, including Steve, even with her restraints, and crashing the ship. She returned to Stark, who nearly killed her with a repulsor blast. Bruised and bloodied, Hill asked Stark for help, and they both learned Osborn had declared them national fugitives who'd sought to negotiate with the Skrulls.

(Invincible Iron Man#10) - Hill and Stark listened to Osborn on the news declaring them public enemies. Stark, with his skull hooked up to a computer terminal, informed Hill she needed to go to Austin, Texas to a Stark subsidiary called Futurepharm in order to retrieve a hard drive, though she questioned the wisdom of splitting up. He asked her to give the device to Captain America once she found it, then shared his own plans to travel the world and put himself at risk, shutting down various Iron Man armories, including the one they were in. She soon found herself kissing him in the heat of the moment and later woke up in his bed, though Stark was already gone. She blew up the base, like he'd instructed, and ran for Texas.

(Invincible Iron Man#11) - Hill passed through Austin, Texas on her way to the Futurepharm plant, seeing posters of several missing people as she did so. After staking it out for a time, she vaulted the fence and spent the following nine hours, her gun drawn, looking for what Stark sent her there for. She soon found a room with the Controller, who was feeding off of dozens of stasis tubes containing the missing people from the city.

(Invincible Iron Man#12) - While Hill sought to disconnect Controller's power source, he sent his captives, including Emilia Ortiz, Pilar de la Paz, and Thaddeus Pascoe, after her. She was quickly overwhelmed and a control disc placed on her neck.

(Invincible Iron Man#13) - Overcome with memories of past commands, Hill easily broke free of the Controller's device. He sent the others after her, but she managed to rip his control cords out and free them. As the Controller fought the captives, she grabbed Tony's Drive X and escaped in a truck.

(Invincible Iron Man#14) - Wearing a wig, Maria was awakened on a bus at the end of its route and she mistakenly attacked the driver before rushing off, successfully evading security. She found the Black Widow for help in finding Captain America, painting a black widow on a door nearby her home and waiting on a nearby roof.

(Invincible Iron Man#15) - Desperate and exhausted, Maria implored Black Widow for help, but the heroine chose not to trust Hill and jumped off the roof. Hill, refusing to take no for an answer, followed her, avoided a widow's bite, and chased her across the street, wrecking several cars. HAMMER agents immediately responded and surrounded them. Hill begged for Black Widow to destroy the bag in her hand, but the heroine saved her instead and helped her escape.

(Invincible Iron Man#16) - Black Widow tried helping Hill recoup, but was put off by Hill's exhaustion and seeming madness. Hill grew defensive, but Black Widow angrily put her in her place and told her to get her act together. Later, Hill, while in the shower, was overcome by the Controller's influence on her; panicking, she fell out of the shower and was comforted by the Black Widow.

(Invincible Iron Man#17) - After waking up to some noise, Hill nearly attacked Black Widow in her own apartment. Later, the two of them tried moving in to see Captain America, but they were surrounded by HAMMER agents and apprehended.

(Invincible Iron Man#18) - While captive in Avengers Tower, Hill tapped messages in Morse Code through the wall at Black Widow, but they were soon approached by Madame Masque, who was secretly Pepper Potts in disguise. Pepper freed them, though Hill was flabbergasted, and explained she had a plan.

(Invincible Iron Man#19) - Though in disbelief that it was Pepper Potts rescuing her, Hill went along with her plan to have "Madame Masque" walk she and Black Widow out of there. When Victoria Hand announced a lockdown, they had to change plans, however, and used the RESCUE armor's control of the Helicarrier to help them. After narrowly evading gunfire, the women resolved to get Stark's drive and get out. They separated from Potts, thanking her, and Hill revealed to Black Widow that she didn't know what was on the drive they were looking for. They dove into the labs ready for a fight, but found three unarmed scientists with the drive and easily retrieved it. As they left the Helicarrier, they passed through dozens of armed guards; Hill called out to them to let them go, out of respect for their former stations in SHIELD, and the guards let them pass. Hill, Potts, Black Widow, and Captain America later joined up with Dr. Don Blake (Thor) in Broxton, Oklahoma, waiting for the release of Stark's body, in a coma and on life support, from Osborn.

(Invincible Iron Man#20) - Alongside Captain America, Black Widow, Donald Blake, and Pepper Potts, Hill listened to a recording from Stark (Back when he'd been director of SHIELD) telling them how to revive him. When Pepper rushed from the room in tears, Hill followed her and embraced her while Pepper questioned why Stark had a way back from the dead when so many others were gone for good.

(Invincible Iron Man#21) - Hill waited while Thor, the Steve Rogers Captain America (who had returned from the dead), James Rhodes, Pepper Potts, and others used various equipment, including the hard drive Hill had retrieved, to try and revive Stark.

(Invincible Iron Man#22) - Frustrated that Tony didn't wake up as expected, Hill went to check on Pepper, who was worried about Tony despite her own recovery. While passing Elizabeth Sooner's room, Hill overheard the Ghost in her room and rushed in, scaring the villain away. She soon convinced them all they'd been compromised and needed to move Stark as quickly as possible. With the other heroes gone, Hill took it upon herself to protect Dr. Lisk, Sooner, and the recovering Potts, who was confined to a wheelchair. As Hill figured out what to do, after getting Stark and Potts down the stairs, she was relieved when Captain America (Rogers) returned with consultant Dr. Stephen Strange. Strange entered Stark's mind and promised to bring him back.

(Invincible Iron Man#23) - While checking in to see how Pepper was feeling, Maria learned that Pepper and Tony had slept together while in Russia, and Pepper learned that Maria and Tony had also slept together. They stared at his body with conflicting emotions. When Dr. Lisk checked in, they said they were fine, but Pepper was soon attacked by the Ghost in the bathroom, though he quickly disappeared again.

(Siege#1) - Hill saw an attack on Asgard from her window in Broxton. Blake ordered her to get Stark to safety, then rushed off to join the battle, concerning Hill.

(Siege#2) - Before Osborn and his villainous allies (including the Dark Avengers and the U-Foes) could kill Thor, Hill went charging in, firing a missile ahead of her to scatter the villains. While one of the kids from Broxton, Jason, worked to pull Thor into their escape car, she fired a machine gun at the villains to keep them away, though Thor had to bat Ms. Marvel (Karla Sofen, who could turn intangible) aside before escaping with them.

Genuinely happy, Hill told Rhodes about the Avengers.

(Avengers IV#1) - Steve Rogers introduced Maria Hill to the Avengers (Captain America (James Barnes), Hawkeye, Iron Man, Spider-Man, Spider-Woman, Thor, Wolverine), as Edwin Jarvis stood by. The Avengers were soon attacked by Kang, who warned them of a dire future in which their children had gone mad. Hill agreed to try and find someone who could time travel.

(Avengers IV#2) - After the Avengers recruited the Protector to build a machine that would verify Kang's claims, Maria shared with Captain America her concerns that it was all a trap.

(Invincible Iron Man#26) - Stark handed over safety protocols to Hill, telling her it contained all the information on how to shut him down and create a new Iron Man should they ever need it, then told her to turn it over to Rogers. After he talked about his repeated life regrets, Hill walked out on him.

(Avengers Prime#1) - At the ruins of Asgard, Hill and others, including Sif, listened to Rogers and Stark argue about Stark's complicity in Osborn's reign. Soon, the duo, with Thor, disappeared in a burst of colorful energy that left Hill disoriented.

(Invincible Iron Man#28) - Monitoring an explosive situation in Tokyo alongside her staff, including Walsh, Maria Hill predicted that Iron Man and War Machine were about to get chumped by Justine and Sasha Hammer and their new armored mercenary, Detroit Steel. They quickly identified old SHIELD Cape-killer armor in the design. Hill angrily confronted them both upon their return, and Stark took time to confront her back on her animosity toward him. Hill chose not to remind him about their romantic tryst.

(Avengers IV#3) - As threats from various multiverses rampaged, Hill struggled to maintain command of the Avengers, hearing Wolverine's point that the true threat was somewhere farther in the time stream.

(Avengers IV#4) - As chaos reigned around them, Hill and the Avengers rushed for shelter, with John Killraven at their side, while Thor took down the biggest threats.

(Age of Heroes#3) - At Avengers Tower, Hill sat down with Sharon Carter and Victoria Hand, who were operating in similar capacities to her on the other Avengers teams, to discuss property divisions when a drunk Absorbing Man attacked. After they were notified by Jarvis, they struggled to find out how he got his powers back, making Hand defensive when she was reminded about her time with Osborn. Carter managed to make him turn into glass and then shatter, but he reconstituted and gave chase.

(Invaders Now#1) - When a string of monstrous mutated bodies showed up in the Netherlands, Rogers asked Hill to prepare the Avengers, but the Invaders (Captain America, Human Torch, Namor, Spitfire, Toro, Union Jack, Vision) showed up to contain the threat.

Frustrated, she ordered Walsh to activate a cellular kill switch to stop the enemy. She contacted Stark and taunted him for not asking for help, just before she offered it. She then contacted General Bruce Babbage, a military man who was in contact with the Hammers, and ordered him to tell them to back off, showing up in a Helicarrier outside his window to prove a point. Babbage later recruited Rhodes to work for him in promoting national security. After they were interrupted by Babbage's secretary, Grace, Hill encouraged War Machine to be her eye son Babbage.

(Indestructible Hulk I#5) - Hill stood by as the Hulk defeated Attuma.

(Winter Soldier I#16) - Hill checked in with Fury about Winter Soldier's pursuit of the Electric Ghost.

(Red She-Hulk I#62) - Hill authorized Agent Allor to kill a former weaponized soldier from the Echelon project, angering General Fortean, who had asked for help in tracking Red She-Hulk and Machine Man. Phil Coulson updated her, then she checked in with the Hulk, who she was reluctant to involve. She did agree to deploy the Mad Thinker, however.

(All-New X-Men I#10) - Maria Hill learned Mystique had posed as her and, with Sabretooth, killed many to liberate Lady Mastermind from jail. The villains then went on a crime spree, killing civilians.

(Avengers V#10) - Hill deployed a group of Avengers (including Manifold and Smasher) to aid Department H's Agent Robert Michaud in Canada. The event site disappeared and Michaud killed himself to avoid revealing classified information. Hill met with Agent Porter about the secrets the heroes were keeping, and he showed her video of Canadian operative Validator giving Michaud secret information, and the Avengers being subjected to versions of themselves from potential futures.

(Uncanny Avengers I#7) - Hill and Nick Fury II questioned Havok about Rogue's accidental slaying of the Grim Reaper, and gave intel that Red Skull's mission to kill mutants was working. She requested Rogue be taken off the team for a time, and watched the team fight about it.

(Uncanny X-Men III#5) - Hill conferred with her crew about Cyclops' public outcry against the Avengers and the growing number of mutants in the world.

(Indestructible Hulk I#6) -

(Indestructible Hulk I#7) -

(Indestructible Hulk I#8) - When Frost Giants from the past opened a portal to Earth, Hill and Coulson led SHIELD agents to repel them, but it was Hulk, and a past Thor, that saved the day.

(Avenging Spider-Man I#20) - When the Helicarrier was attacked by Soviet operatives in skull masks called the Saints trying to kill the captive Chameleon. Spider-Man, the Hulk, and the Secret Avengers were on board.

(Avenging Spider-Man I#21) - After a massive battle, the Saints were defeated but the Chameleon escaped, frustrating Hill.

(Secret Avengers II#4) - Hill and Quake recruited Hulk, War Machine, and Mockingbird to the Secret Avengers as AIM launched new sentient Iron Patriot zones against American targets, causing the US government to have to take responsibility for the attacks. The Hulk was unleashed against the Iron Patriots in Iran, and he was arrested afterwards, an action sanctioned by Hill. She publicly revealed Mentallo as an AIM-affiliated enemy. The Secret Avengers were then sent on a secret mission, to assassinate the leader of AIM, Robert Forson.

(Secret Avengers II#5) -Quake was stripped of her power and Hill was put in as acting director by Charles Dalton and others on the security council. Robert Forson, believed dead, was appointed AIM Island's ambassador to the United Nations.

(Uncanny X-Men III#6) - Coulson, at Hill's request, invited Dazzler to be SHIELD's mutant expert, and Hill interviewed her, also keeping tabs on the recent mutant activity.

(Uncanny Avengers I#9) - Hill and Abigail Brand discussed the threat of the Apocalypse Twins (Uriel, Eimin), who had crashed the Peak spaceship on Earth, then destroyed the Akkaba City. Hill wanted the Avengers to take over the mission.

(Indestructible Hulk I#9) - Hill accompanied Hulk, Daredevil, and SHIELD agents (including Agent Krause) on a siege against arms dealers in the Agence Byzantine, bantering with Banner during the mission.

(Secret Avengers II#6) - Charles Dalton introduced himself to Hill as the new liaison to the security council. She worked with Dalton to plan on removing Quake from power, due to her subversive actions on Barbuda (authorizing Forson dead).

(Indestructible Hulk I#10) - In a fight against Baron Zemo, Hulk and Daredevil called Hill for assistance when Hulk went on a rampage.

(All-New X-Men I#14) - After the X-Men apprehended Mystique, Hill went to the Cage to interrogate her. Warden Pitt let her in and guard Gary showed her to the cell, but Mystique had already escaped.

(Wolverine V#7 - bts) - Hill called a meeting to research a Microverse virus that had taken Wolverine's healing factor.

(Uncanny X-Men III#9) - Hill watched Dazzler question new mutant Fabio Medina as the X-Men (Cyclops, Emma Frost, Magneto, Magik, Tempus, Hijack), and they teleported her to the beach.

(Uncanny X-Men III#10) - Hill and "Dazzler" (secretly Mystique) met with Magneto.

(Indestructible Hulk I#11) - Agent Goddard of SHIELD was killed in a mission to infiltrate the time stream, so Hill called in Hulk, who'd been aiding Agents Gale and Zemec against the Sons of the Serpent. She showed Hulk to the little-known department of SHIELD, TIME (Temporal Irregularity Management and Eradication), staffed by Hulk's scientists. They kept an elderly Zarrko the Tomorrow Man captive, him having been there for 20 years. Reality warped around the world with people disappearing, costumes changing, and people moving through time (like a 75-year missing plane showing up). Zarrko claimed to be from the timeline where he first battled Thor, then started predicting events and disappearances, and he built a suit for Hulk to be led to the people from the time stream who were causing the problems. With Hulk on the mission, the ROB unit took the place of Bruce Banner. Hulk went on his first mission, to fight cowboys and dinosaurs in 1873.

Chronologically, I think Maria Hill's interrogation of Daisy Johnson in Secret War#5 takes place before her being contacted by the Avengers in New Avengers#4. Remember, the interrogation takes place six hours after the big battle in New York, right before Fury went into hiding.
  I believe that Secret War #5 was meant to be Hill's first appearance, but because of the delays she appeared in other comics before it was released.
