In the real world, the Cold War was a nuclear arms race that came terribly close to going wrong. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it is becoming clear that the US and USSR were essentially caught up in a secret superhuman arms race, with both nations attempting to carry out super soldier programs. Russia succeeded, creating the Red Guardian. The United States conducted its own super soldier experiments, but according to The Incredible Hulk, they didn't work as well.

Fortunately, America was not dependent on this show, but was also drawing on the experience of the original Ant-Man and the Wasp.

It seems that organizations like SHIELD and its Soviet equivalent worked hard to ensure that all of this happened out of sight, with no public awareness of the gods and monsters, super-soldiers and size-changers operating in the shadows in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. | Cinema, comics and series
