History:
(Hawkeye: Freefall#5 (fb) - BTS) - Stanley was an employee of Han Dynasty, a restaurant the criminal Hood would visit every year on his birthday for dim sum. When the heroic Hawkeye learned of the Hood's annual birthday dinner, he paid the Han Dynasty for a private party just so the Hood would not be able to have his birthday dinner as part of larger plot to attack the Hood's criminal activities and Stanley was chosen as the employee to refuse service to the Hood if he arrived.

(Hawkeye: Freefall#5) - After the Hood was forced to miss his annual birthday movie due to the theater being closed for a supposed bomb threat, he traveled to Han Dynasty, where Stanley came outside and informed the Hood that there were no tables available. The Hood at first assumed Stanley was joking but Stanley reiterated that Han Dynasty was completely booked up. Looking over Stanley's shoulder, the Hood remarked that the restaurant looked empty to him and Stanley claimed it was a private party and that they had tried to get in touch with the Hood beforehand. Shoving Stanley aside, the Hood stormed his way into the restaurant, only to find Hawkeye sitting alone, feigning an apology for his non-existent private party.

Comments: Created by Matthew Rosenberg and Otto Schmidt.

    Stanley's eye color was impossible to determine as he was only ever seen at weird angles that prevented his eyes from being seen fully.

Han Dynasty

Han Dynasty was a restaurant known for their dim sum entrees. The criminal Hood visited Han Dynasty on an annual basis for dim sum on his birthday. Eventually, the heroic Hawkeye learned of these annual visits and arranged for the restaurant to be unavailable on the Hood's birthday as part of ongoing attacks on the Hood's criminal activities. When the Hood arrived for his birthday, Han Dynasty sent Stanley out to inform the Hood that they were unavailable and Stanley claimed that they were full due to a private party. Noticing that the restaurant appeared empty, the Hood shoved Stanley aside and entered the restaurant, only to find Hawkeye waiting for him, feigning an apology for the non-existent private party. Angry that Hawkeye had again meddled in his affairs, the Hood nearly had his agents murder Hawkeye right where he sat in Han Dynasty but Hawkeye brought along Wesley Welch from the mayor's office. Upon learning that Mayor Wilson Fisk was not happy with the Hood's feud with Hawkeye, the Hood backed off and teleported away.
