Limelight can be achieved while underground and incognito.

His cynical nature is what would keep him Anti-Reg. His optimistism is what keeps him a hero. And by his very words, going way back, he believes that the best in people comes from independence from government controls.

Unfortunately, you can be both Initiative and Anti-Reg. Plus, if he did decide to try the Initiative way, it wouldn't work out for long, because he's too rebellious and his views are diametrically opposed to everyone in control of the Initiative. He wouldn't stand for a single thing any of them are doing for a split second.

He be the one with the kids' best interest in mind and be on Cloud 9's side who joined to get a license to use her powers and start punching people like Gauntlet and Gyrich, as well as Tony and Pym, for being irresponsible hypocrites who send untrained and underaged kids to a battle as if they were weapons to be used. He would never agreed to such insanity and when he trained the Great Lake Avengers, he made sure there were fail-safes in the training and make sure they were ready like a professional.
