As chronicled in the Thunderbolts series (issue #s 58,60,61 and 63), Cottonmouth, Hawkeye, Headlok/Mentallo and Plant Man once escaped together from a maximum security prison and were forced to remain together for quite some time due to high-tech confinement gauntlets. This group was informally known as the "Chain Gang," but this was never really a formally organized team.


BELOW: Hawkeye consesses to Thor that he pelted Loki (in disguise as a SHIELD technician present at an Ultimates team meeting) with super-accurately thrown straightened paper clips. Note Hawkeye's explicit reference to Loki as a Norse god.

...and Thor wondered what had really happened.

Clint winked at him. "Can't stand a sneak," he whispered. "Especially a sneaky Norse god. I mean, if you're a Norse god, show yourself."

Clint held up a paper clip, bent straight except for a single curl at one end. He made a flicking motion with the fingers of his right hand. "Sent him a little greeting card, is all."

BELOW: Tony Stark (Iron Man) contemplates the dark "secrets" of his fellow Ultimates:

Then again it wasn't like Banner was the only one whose character could be considered . . . murky. They all had secrets... Who knew what sins Hawkeye would be atoning for when he finally met his maker? Years in SHIELD's black ops would have piled them up by the dozen.
