One thing I just released and I find is brilliant is vast majority of the new heroes (made within 2012-2017 period) DON'T live in New York. For Marvel's long history EVERY character it seemed came and operated in New York. But recently it seems that the new young heroes made in this decade most live and operate outside of New York such as Ms Marvel and the new Wasp live in New Jersey, Nova in mid america, Viv in Virginia, and so forth. Even if they do live in New York many of the new heroes have made links to teams or heroes outside of New York giving a good reason why they would not be in New York during this issues.
Now it seems the experienced and prominent heroes that the young would look up to, be lead by, or help save them in dire times are now the ones who will have to rely on the new generation of heroes to save them. Majority of the new young heroes are now the last and only line of attack and defense against HYDRA/CAP as the notable distinguished and powerhouse heroes are out of play or need saving and some are most likely dead now.
