Hawkeye101 said:No, no, no. I think you miss interpreted what I was trying to say. Hawkeye spacifically says "SHIELD was just you, me, and a drinks tab trying to bring down what was left of the Soviet Union." This says to me, that even though the Soviet Union fell from power officially in 1990, there were still pockets of Soviet soldigers, or soviet bases and stuff (the beginnings of Ultimate Hydra?). And Hawk could be 26 (by my count). Why would Fury want him on the Ultimates if he wasn't some kind of prodigy. The youngest American Agent or whatever. It works. I was under the impression in 'Homeland Security' that Hawkeye and Laura were teen lovers and accidentally started a family, because at that point Laura was only Hawk's girlfriend.
P.S. please keep critiquing this, I find it vey helpful
Thats fine and all, but the Soviet Union totally crumbled and Russia became a Russian democracy with very little military squabbling. It wasn't some long, drawn-out thing like is currently happening in Iraq (which is more evidence we should just mind our own business as it seems to work better when we do). Therefore, the taking care of what was "left of the Soviet Union" thing would still most likely refer to a time VERY soon after the fall, meaning VERY early nineties. Assuming Hawkeye was at least 18 to take part in this, that would place him being born around 1972 or 1973, meaning in the current Ultimate timeline he's 31 or 32. And dead by that age as well.
Why do you have that habit of under-guessing character's ages? I remember you posted a thread about that and had most of the Ultimates in their early to mid 20's. Trust me, they're probably all in their early to late 30's, not their 20's.
