    There will soon come a day where negative posters everywhere read a Sabrewulf thread and say to themselves, "Is that how I come off? Screw that."

    And they will find something positive to say for once in their lives.

    I like Fraction just fine: loved Iron Fist, loving Defenders (he and Brian K. Vaughn are the only people whoíve ever written a Dr. Strange I could stand). Not a big fan of Thor or Iron Man as characters, so I havenít read those runs. I even liked Fear Itself, probably because I bought it as a collected edition and read it all at once, vs. with a month in-between. Needless to say, Iím good with Fraction, Iím good with Aja, Iím good with Hawkeye. Iím even good with Hawkeyeís new costume.

    The problem I have is making him a street-level type hero. I think Hawkeye works best when heís the regular guy in anything-but-regular circumstances. I think thatís the reason the two best solo-esque books for him were McCannís Hawkeye and Mockingbird and the old Mark Gruenwald miniÖin both he was just a guy with a bow and trick arrows, but he was up against all kinds of craziness with super-assassins, ghosts, even a band of deadly jugglers. This just makes him seem like heís going to be fall somewhere between Daredevil and the Punisher. Thatís not the type of Hawkeye story I really want to read.

    He has lots of positive things to say about the current DC stuff, but ever since Marvel went to the $3.99 price tag, he's been hellbent on saying every negative thing in the book about them.

    I think we're going to see him start off street level and find himself engaged in something way bigger than he bargained for. It's par for the course for the character. Unless you count nighttime security as something greater than "street level work".

    I remember that, I think it was one of the last things put out by Wildstorm. It started off well and then just petered out.

    His whole origin started because he was a dick. Snobby surgeon who wouldn't treat anyone unless they had the bucks right upfront, wouldn't even socialize with other doctors he deemed beneath him. Then he lost the use of his hands, then his practice, then lost everything and wound up homeless, and eventually made his way to Tibet to meet the Ancient One. The Ancient One seemed to only train dicks too. Look at Baron Mordo. Mordo vs. Strange was always really a battle of who was the biggest dick.

    And Dr. Druid. He did train dicks.

    He's a Steve Ditko creation, after all. Guy pretty much specialised in dickish characters.

    'Mm,' she agreed. 'He's a little bit dodgy in the same way that rats are a little bit covered in fur."

    Fraction wrote a very good story with Clint and Kate back in the Young Avengers Presents series. If he can re-capture even half of the chemistry (non-romantic chemistry, of course) between the two that he captured in that tale, then this will be made completely of "win".

    Anyway, Fraction got on Hawkeye because he had a pitch that editorial liked. The end. What a stupid question.
    I bet the pitch was movie Hawkeye + young girl. And then they went gaga.

    Marvel has become so Hollywood. You could have guys who are the greatest pitchers yet are mediocre writers. Yet great creators who are not good pitcher or are not interested at pitching. Hence why great creators do not work at Marvel.

    I remember him being there more frequently when the New 52 first started shipping, but I haven't been to those boards in quite some time.
