History:

(Bullseye: Greatest Hits#1 (fb) - BTS) - A special agent for the National Security Administration Super-Crimes Division, Scott Hoskins lead a team to apprehend Bullseye. His whole team was killed and Hoskins barely survived, receiving a scar near his eye. When Bullseye collapsed from a seizure, Hoskins captured him. Hoskins was assigned with Marcus Baldry, of the Anti-Terrorism Unit, to question Bullseye about a nuclear device he'd stolen.

(Bullseye: Greatest Hits#1) - Hoskins and Baldry arrived at the special prison, which was under the guise of Bortz and Son Ironworks. Baldry briefed Hoskins on what they knew about the mission as they endured retina scans and tissue samples to get inside. They were then required to strip completely down, and Baldry felt inadequate next to Hoskins, who put Baldry in his place but agreed to follow his expertise in the questioning. The men met the facility supervisor and were introduced to the armed guard, Horace, and the technician, Philip. They learned the defenses of the base and that it only contained seven prisoners. Baldry excused himself to meditate, then returned and explained to Hoskins the need for patience in the questioning process. Bullseye, from behind the protective glass, managed to put the men off balance with a joke. Bullseye told a story about a tragic past and an abusive father who was murdered in a house fire by his brother, Nate.

(Bullseye: Greatest Hits#2) - The agents then learned that the nuclear device had been found, but that the plutonium core was missing, when Horace pulled them out of questioning. Baldry insisted that they maintain their patient questioning, though Hoskins lost his cool and destroyed an expensive piece of equipment in frustration. They returned and Baldry continued the questioning, hearing his claims of being in foster care, becoming a professional ball player, and murdering a man on the field. Bullseye then said he was recruited by the CIA and sent to Nicaragua.

(Bullseye: Greatest Hits#3) - The agents learned that one of the plutonium cores had been found on a train bound for Nicaragua and they moved to continue questioning Bullseye. Hoskins promised to get the information by whatever method possible if Baldry's methods proved ineffective. Bullseye told them about getting involved in drug-running in Nicaragua before making it back to New York, seeking to make a name for himself as an NSA agent.

(Bullseye: Greatest Hits#4) - Baldry managed to break through to Bullseye by calling him an assassin, and Bullseye mentioned the two missing plutonium cores. He came to his senses again when Hoskins punched the glass. Both agents quickly left. Hoskins demanded the warden let him question Bullseye personally, and the warden agreed.

(Bullseye: Greatest Hits#5) - With Baldry and Horace standing by, Hoskins entered and shoved a furious Bullseye to the ground. Hoskins provoked Bullseye by touching his knee when Bullseye demanded not to be touched, then punched him repeatedly, demanding the location of the plutonium. Bullseye claimed it was in a nearby campground and then denied it. Hoskins knocked one of Bullseye's teeth loose and Bullseye spit the tooth into Hoskins' skull, killing him.
