Fictional character biographyEdit

Javelynn was hired along with Trick Shot as mercenaries to serve a cell of the subversive organization known the Secret Empire. Viper, the leader of the cell, ordered Javelynn and Trick Shot to protect the animal experiments which were being conducted at the Secret Empire headquarters, the Enclave, in the Canadian Rockies. Sometime later, the Enclave was stumbled upon by Hawkeye, who had isolated himself in the area after the apparent death of his wife Mockingbird. Hawkeye battled with Javelynn and his former mentor but was quickly overpowered and driven away. Reporting back to Viper, Javelynn and Trick Shot were ordered to hunt down and kill Hawkeye and anyone who got in their way.[1] Later, after Trick Shot had decided to abandon his mercenary contract and side with his former pupil, Javelynn battled Hawkeye alone and was effortlessly subdued.[2]
