Misty Knight is a female comic superhero who features in Marvel Comics.
Daughters of the Dragon
Heroes for Hire
During the Civil War, Iron Man met with Misty Knight about organising a team of heroes in order to concentrate on low level crimes and to maintain order. Reluctantly, she agreed and formed a new incarnation of the Heroes for Hire who went about stopping super-powered related criminals. This included the addition of former criminals who were given a trial run and allowed to aid in arrests so long as they did not kill anyone. (Heroes for Hire v2 #1)
In disguise, she went undercover in Bagalia on behalf of S.H.I.E.L.D. where she watched supervillain activity. During this time, she seemingly uncovered a vast conspiracy that involved Hydra having infiltrated every group on the planet and turned them to their cause. Knight was unsure on who to trust and did not share her findings with her handlers. She broke her cover when the new Captain America Sam Wilson was transported to Bagalia and was beset upon by Crossbones. Misty came to knock the villain out and helped Wilson where she told him about the Hydra conspiracy. (All-New Captain America v1 #2)
She later came to be a member of the new Aberrant Crimes Division (A.C.D.) that was responsible for handling super-powered cases. (Sentry v3 #1) This was a branch of the F.B.I. with Misty being a lead agent in the division. (Jessica Jones v2 #2)
