In the first two runs of Hawkeye, a group is already making things worse for Kate Bishop and Clint Barton as they look for who is behind Ronin. The Tracksuit Mafia followed both of them and at the end of the second episode, it was later revealed that they are working for someone, they are reporting and following the orders of a person behind the group. Who is she?
Who is Behind the Tracksuit Mafia in Hawkeye?
Just before the end of the second episode, it was revealed that the Tracksuit mafia is working for someone. They abducted Clint Barton who seemingly surrendered himself to them and Kate Bishop who attempted to rescue him failed and got both of them captured and tied into kiddie rides. The leader of the Tracksuit mafia called on someone in a separate room reporting that both of them are in custody.
It was a woman, one who seems to be feeling the vibrations of a speaker and she talked to the head of the Tracksuit mafia in signs. It is none other than Alaqua Cox’s character, Echo, who recently got her very own spinoff series announced to be added into the slate of Disney Plus shows of Marvel.
Echo, in the comics, was the first Ronin. She is a Native American who has the ability to perfectly echo or copy the fighting style of her opponent, hence her name. Echo makes a formidable fighter given the said ability. What makes her more special is, despite her name being associated with sound, Echo is deaf.
Could it be that she is only looking for the Ronin suit? Are the Tracksuit mafia really the villains or is there more to the story than what meets the eye? After all, these guys are extremely hilarious that one of them even has to state the obvious of interrogating Hawkeye. Are they just there for comic relief or is there more behind who they are?
