History: (Hawkeye III#7 (fb) – BTS) – Eden the tattooed lady joined Tiboldt's Traveling Circus, working for the Ringmaster alongside Hawkeye the Marksman and Bruto the Strong Man. Eden had a romantic relationship with Hawkeye but she was secretly seeing Ringmaster on the side. After Ringmaster sought a working relationship with a local artist, he instead killed the man and stole from him and Eden was his accomplice.

(Hawkeye III#7 (fb)) – When Hawkeye learned about the death of the artist, he went to find Eden and found her in Ringmaster's tent. Eden rushed after him, assuring Hawkeye she had nothing to do with the murder and that she was his woman only.

(Hawkeye III#8 (fb)) – As Mechano (the Hulk in disguise) went on performing by juggling elephants, Ringmaster announced that Hawkeye, Bruto and Eden, in her "Garden of Eden" act, were up next. Hawkeye broke his bow so he went to Eden's storage chest for a soldering iron and he found stolen art. Hawkeye missed his performance and he later confronted Eden, who denied involvement.

(Hawkeye III#8 (fb) – BTS) – Hawkeye turned Eden in and she was convicted, serving ten years.

(Hawkeye III#8) – After her release from a penitentiary in Michigan, Eden was released. Although she refused to forgive Hawkeye, she took money from him and accepted a ride.

Comments: Created by Fabian Nicieza, Joe Bennett and Sandu Florea.

The Incredible Hulk disguised himself as Mechano the clown and performed for a carnival by juggling elephants in Avengers I#1. In Hawkeye III#8, we see him performing in the background before Hawkeye discovers the evidence in Eden's trunk.
