Hawkeye’s Hypnotized Thunderbolts
Hawkeye, after joining Thunderbolts in the late 90s, was doing his best to lead the formerly villainous outfit in a more heroic direction. Once he successfully reformed them, he turned his eyes to a new group of villains, utilizing the mind-control powers of Ringmaster to keep them tame. This team included lesser-known villains such as Whirlwind, Stilt-Man, the Wrecker, and Batroc the Leaper. Once the main protagonist noticed dissension in the ranks, he was nearly convinced that Ringmaster was trying to pull all the strings in the leadership role. The team later “recruited” Taskmaster and the Absorbing Man.
The New Power Man And Iron Fist
In Lee Ferguson’s reimagining of the Iron Fist, Danny Rand is crippled and as a result, intensely isolated. His absence killed Luke Cage and Colleen Wing during a battle with weapon smugglers. A battle-worn Misty Knight came to Danny for help in rebuilding her bionic arm, installing many upgrades and weapons in the process. Using the Rand Corporation’s funds, Danny created a full-body, nuclear-powered bionic suit, ordaining himself as the new Power Man in honor of his fallen comrade.
