But what does it mean for the good men and women at S.H.I.E.L.D.? Well, after Secret Empire, where they all got co-opted by Hydra, it's not great, The government (again) is shutting them down. Everyone's out of work.
Basically, they are all Uber drivers in London.
This leaves the police having to arrest Deadpool for killing Agent Phil Coulson, Even though he was under orders at the time from the legitimate head of state, Steve Rogers.
Steve Rogers is trying to avoid the fallout, such that he can.

But bad as it is, over in Scarlet Spider #8 by Peter David, Will Sliney, Jason Keith and Andrew Crossley…
…there do seem to be plenty of survivors.
And most people seem to be okay, albeit in urgent needs of assistance and help.

Maybe Kobik did walk back some of the death and destruction after all?
