(Not to mention, why did all the Avengers decide seeing Hawkeye's uniform pinned up with arrows in the ruins of the mansion mean he was alive in hiding and not, you know, possibly in need of their help?)
Anyway, though, instead of derailing the thread, some favorite Hawkeye moments? I think mine was the beach fight with USAgent -- and how it eventually led to their friendship -- in Avengers West. I was really disappointed Agent didn't get to make some crack about ninja idiocy in the recent MA arc.
If you want a completely annoying, over the top Clint, there's always Dane Cook.
he didn't have a problem with kate bishop after she told him cap gave her the hawkeye name. of course cap thought clint was dead.
I guess to elaborate a little on my personal feelins about this, I mean to say that I don't think Jessica Jones should have been the one to give Kate Bishop items that were once Hawkeye's. There is no meaning there. If Iron Man was the one to do it, it would have had more value. Jones declined being an Avenger and went off to do her own thing... What did Clint mean to her at the time? Not a whole lot.
In a way, it's like Bendis stepping in the comic saying "Well, I don't really care about Hawkeye or anything, but you can have his stuff... The next writer will figure out what to do with you."
Nothing more to say really that Hawkeye is the God of awesomeness.
My favorite comic character and the reason why I still read comics.
He's also why I love the Avengers-the old school version- so much. He's why super-hero comics are cool.
All purple and attitude.
