Or would he be angered his name was used in association with folks who opposed his old friends Cap and Namor (especially considering what happened to Cap as a result of that opposition)?

That superhumans are now considered weapons then people with rights and innocent until proven guilty.
> As much as he hates Nazis, I don't think Hammond would see the Initiative as a Nazi-like organization (although he'd likely not trust Tony). He's a former cop, a former soldier and a proponent of order and accountability. I see him as pro-reg.
Hammond would be honored that his contributions as an Invader are being recognized in such a way- the training side of the Initiative and the SHRA deserves such endorsement from an old school hero, and is certainly worth investing in.
He would not agree with things like the Thunderbolts or Cape Killers as they are now, but Camp Hammond is a way to avoid those things. With people like Steel Spider, Moon Knight and the Punisher still on the loose, he might concede that the Bolts and CKs are necessary.
