History: (All-New Hawkeye II#4 (fb) - BTS) - Three siblings in an orphanage in Boston were hit by the Terrigen Mists and transformed into mutated creatures with a telepathic connection, capable of destroying and controlling others with their focused powers.
(All-New Hawkeye I#1) - S.H.I.E.L.D. asked Hawkeye (Clint Barton) and Hawkeye (Kate Bishop) to investigate rumors of a new Hydra weapon and they discovered the three kids in a stasis tube.
(All-New Hawkeye I#2) - Bishop broke the kids out of stasis just as Hydra soldiers rushed in with a scientist who ordered the kids be killed immediately. Instead, the kids forced the Hydra agents to kill each other. Bishop found Barton, who was initially horrified at the appearance of the deformed children, and they guided the kids outside to their ship as a Hydra agent ran away, saying that the Hawkeyes had "doomed them all." The kids asked if they were going home and Kate told them not yet but asked them to trust her.
(All-New Hawkeye I#3 (fb) - BTS) - Bishop and Barton delivered the kids back to S.H.I.E.L.D., who quickly isolated the kids, placing them in containers with psi-dampeners.
(All-New Hawkeye I#3) - As the S.H.I.E.L.D. scientists observed the three kids, Bishop and Barton attacked, freeing the kids, who soon became responsive after recognizing Bishop (who they called "Kate Katie Hawkeye"). Barton and Bishop got the kids to safety on a flying car then took the kids back to Barton's apartment, where they met Lucky the dog.
(All-New Hawkeye I#4) - Katie and Clint read to the kids, played video games with them and took them to a barbecue with the neighbors on the rooftop. When Hydra agents attacked, the two Hawkeyes fought back then the kids sent out an attack of green psychic energy that destroyed the Hydra agents.
(All-New Hawkeye I#5) - The kids saw Barton and Bishop fighting about the murders the kids had just committed and got angry, preparing to attack Barton before Bishop talked them down. The kids promised Bishop that they wouldn't hurt anyone else. When more Hydra agents arrived, the two heroes felt they had no choice but to let the kids be taken. Hydra agents placed them in stasis units and flew away in a helicopter.
(All-New Hawkeye II#1 (fb) - BTS) - S.H.I.E.L.D. obtained the children again and placed them in a containment facility in Colorado.
(All-New Hawkeye II#5 (fb) - BTS) - Kate Bishop and Barney Barton posed as Hydra agents and freed the kids from captivity.
(All-New Hawkeye II#5) - Clint Barton and S.H.I.E.L.D. agents went after "Hydra" to try to free the Project Communion kids then seemingly blew up the transport to make S.H.I.E.L.D. think that the kids were dead. The kids were then brought to safety by Bishop and the Barton Brothers.
(All-New Hawkeye II#6) - Hydra attacked the Barton Brothers and Bishop and the Project Communion kids watched as the Hydra agents were defeated. The kids were taken to a remote island and introduced to "Cheryl" (real name Simone) and her children, including Charlie, and Barney agreed to take care of them there.
Comments: Created by Jeff Lemire and Ramon Perez.
In the alternate future of Earth-15928, the three kids from Project Communion, all grown up, ended up at war with the Mandarin. They were rescued by the two Hawkeyes before Maria Hill killed them.
The word communion is defined as an exchanging of thoughts or feelings on an intimate level but is most often associated with the Catholic sacrament. It is unclear why these kids were called Project Communion, nor were they given individual names.
