Michael Van Patrick was a character from Avenger's initiative. He never showed any particular 'super power' so why was he part of the initiative?

He was part of the initiative probably due to being the great grand-son of the creator of the super soldier serum which created Captain America. He has no super powers though he's an outstanding human-being:

In Avengers: The Initiative #2, Dr. Baron Von Blitzschlag refers to Michael Van Patrick as an "Übermensch", a perfect human specimen, down to the cellular level. This perfection is displayed in his mental and physical abilities being the highest possible standard for a human being to be without being considered superhuman, much like Captain America.
