Biography

World Security Council

"I don't think you understand what you've started. Letting the Avengers loose on this world. They're dangerous."
―Hawley to Nick Fury[src]

Councilwoman Hawley is a British member of the World Security Council. During Loki's campaign for world domination, Hawley and her fellow council members favored the idea of utilizing Phase 2 as a defense over the Avengers Initiative, bringing her at odds with Nick Fury.[1]

Chitauri Invasion

"We don't need hearings, we need action!"
―Hawley[src]
Fury and the WSC

She supported the decision to nuke New York City during the Battle of New York, though this ultimately failed when Iron Man redirected the missile to the Chitauri battle fleet in outer space, effectively ending the invasion.[1]

Project Insight

"Are you calling for my resignation? I’ve got a pen and paper right here."
"That discussion can be tabled for a later time."
Alexander Pierce and Hawley[src]

Hawley continued to serve on the Council after the Battle of New York. Following the battle, Hawley and the rest of the council coordinated with Alexander Pierce and Nick Fury to develop a stronger role for S.H.I.E.L.D.. To that end, they created Project Insight.

Shortly before the launch of Project Insight, Hawley was replaced and impersonated by Black Widow, who needed access to the Triskelion and Pierce.[2]

Discussion with Thaddeus Ross

"Is there anything you actually know, Ross? Not supposition. Not guesses. Genuine hard evidence. Dazzle me with your wisdom. I really want to know. The woman saved my life and now you want my resources to bring her in along with Rogers and the others."
―Hawley to Thaddeus Ross[src]

After the Clash of the Avengers, Thaddeus Ross arranged a meeting with the World Security Council, asking them for resources so he could bring in Natasha Romanoff. He believes that Romanoff helped Steve Rogers escape. Hawley was surprised by Ross' decision, claiming that Romanoff had saved her life during the HYDRA Uprising and fought against Captain America, as evidenced by a newspaper. Ross tried to persuade her, but she denied all his affirmations, believing they were not strong evidence. Hawley even challenged him to change her opinion about Romanoff.

The two moved to the conference room, where Ross revealed to Hawley information about Romanoff's past, extracted from S.H.I.E.L.D. files. She was surprised to find out that the Red Room was more than a legend, but still believed that Romanoff was innocent. Ross told Hwley about the Ambush in Odessa and Romanoff's mission to monitor Tony Stark, claiming to be the starting point in her superhero life.[3]
