I think it´s a new era for the Avengers, with only street level characters in their ranks, except for Dr. Strange who is just too much power for a team like that; I´m willing to give this series a shot, I just don´t see Stephen Strange following orders from Cage, that would be weird (IMO).

Hopefully Strange would just get bored and will try to reform the original Defenders \:\-D (you can only hope...!)

Without Strange, I don't think there can be a New Avengers.

If this team doesn't have Tony then it doesn't have the Quinjets and hi-tech HQ and gazillion dollar equipment. Strange can compensate for that.

As for the leadership issue... I think you're selling Strange short.

Out if respect, he'll give Cage a chance. If he sees that Cage does a good job (and I think he will), he'll go along with Cage. If Cage sucks then obviously changes will need to be made.

Wasp turned out to be probably the second greatest Avengers field leader behind Cap, but they didn't give a chance to be chairperson for decades. Cage has no real experience, but he may turn out to be a great leader who just hasn't been given an opportunity to show it like Wasp.
