He's Commander of the Avengers. There is no SHIELD, HAMMER or any "Unnamed Security Agency". He is using a smaller group than his predecessors. The three Avengers teams and that's it.

I think the Captain Rogers is because someone writing the books incorrectly thinks the "Captain" in Captain America was an actual rank. I don't believe Rogers ever got higher than Private before he got frozen back in WWII.

I'm not sure.

He's certainly the Commander of the Avengers groups.

He does not seem to have a support structure paramilitary force, but remember, its "early days" right now, and nature abhors a vacuum. I find it hard to believe that any President would just mothball all the infrastructure and give pink slips to trained operatives; talk about a recipe for disaster!

Then there is the old "Champion"-level clearance, which IIRC superceeds and is superior to the normal chain of command; kind of a rank of various kinds.

Rogers' rank of Captain seems to be just as spurious as his "cover" rank of Private.
