The Rescue of Wanda Maximoff was a successful attempt by Clint Barton to infiltrate the New Avengers Facility and retrieve former teammate Wanda Maximoff.


After an attack in Lagos killed twenty-six people, eleven being relief aid workers from Wakanda, the governments of the world called for the United Nations to create a system of accountability.

The United Nations eventually passed the Sokovia Accords, a set of documents that would establish a panel to monitor and control the movements of the Avengers.

Following the announcement, Tony Stark placed Wanda Maximoff under house arrest and tasked Vision with keeping her confined to the New Avengers Facility in order to prevent another incident from taking place.

However, Steve Rogers contacted the now-retired Clint Barton to rescue Maximoff and help him deal with the threat of the Winter Soldiers.
