Is there a connection between STRANGER THINGS’s Hawkins National Laboratory and the METAL GEAR SOLID universe?

I apologize for keeping many of you waiting. It’s been a hell of a few years. So to those of you who have stuck around, I appreciate you. Thank you. 

Okay. Enough of that. 

Weeks ago, I finished watching STRANGER THINGS on Netflix and I was blown away by what I saw. 

Especially, when it concerns the antagonist organization known as the Hawkins National Laboratory that works under the auspices of the U.S. Department of Energy. 

As I continued watching the 8-episode miniseries, a series of questions came to me:

What if the events of STRANGER THINGS took place months prior to the events of METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN?

What if the Hawkins National Laboratory was tasked with creating paranormal agents to fight paranormal agents employed by the Soviet Union during the Cold War? 

Perhaps to counter the abilities of paranormal Soviet agents such as The Man On Fire ( or the Third Boy (….

Perhaps the child test subject of the Hawkins National Laboratory known as Eleven was created and trained to be a paranormal agent in America’s arsenal to combat such individuals.

Furthermore, what if the Hawkins National Laboratory answered to the secret global network known as Cipher (, created by Major David Oh, the former commanding officer of FOX Unit (, following the events of METAL GEAR SOLID: PORTABLE OPS, to replace the global power of The Philosophers ( introduced in METAL GEAR SOLID 3: SNAKE EATER?

Only time will tell….

I can’t wait to see Season Two of STRANGER THINGS to find out.
