    I'm going to give this a shot because I like Aja and I used to really like Fraction, and still really like his Casanova series.

    But pretty much everything about this tells me that I won't be on it past the first issue. Just not my 'type' of story; Fraction will have to give us something exceptional for me to stick around, something as good as the Longbow Hunters or Quiver or Hero's Quest (Green Arrow storylines).

    I assume the real costume will come back someday. We've suffered through the Robin Hood period, the Goliath period, and the godawful man suit period and the classic costume's come back every time. I'm sure people thought we wouldn't get X-costumes back, but we did eventually. At some point, this generation of Marvel creators will move on and we'll get people who like classic Hawkeye, and the classic Avengers -- who don't think they all need to be grim 'n' gritty streel-level killers, and they'll come in and try to fix all the damage of the last decade. Heck, it's already started a little bit with people remembering Hawkeye is not in fact a callous killer or a moronic ninja.

I also don't think that hooking up with Jessica Drew gives Clint a Peter Parker esque appeal at all, since Peter doesn't routinely have costumed love interests outside of Black Cat, and Clint was kind of falling in love with bad girls before she was introduced.
    I'll admit that Peter doesn't have any costumed love interests outside of Black Cat. This is why I felt that there are other costumed women who are interested in Peter besides Felicia. But they never got the chance to reveal themselves because he was married. Thus, I believe that Carol Danvers, Silver Sable, Jennifer Walters, and Jessica Drew should be on Spidey's list of costumed women who are interested in him. For Spider-Man there should be at least 5-6 potential heroines who have a strong attraction towards him aside from The Black Cat. Some diversity among the costumed love interests outside of Black Cat would make things interesting. Especially for a writer who might not like The Black Cat; but would choose either Carol Danvers, Silver Sable, Jennifer Walters, or Jessica Drew.

    I've seen a few people mention Longbow Hunters, but I don't think the connection is that strong; Longbow Hunters was all about darkening Ollie to a significant degree, making him a hunter, making him a killer. It was very much a post-DKR take on the character. He's conflicted, he's dark, he's got serious violent urges. He's not a 'good man'.

Same for Hawkeye, who's only really exposed in Avengers titles....which makes perfect sense considering he's the cement of the Avengers. He's the ideal embodiment of what an Avenger is, and with this movie it's great that they're giving him a bit of over-exposure to finally after ~60 years get his star risen. A lot of people just like to harp on the mainstream.
    Classic Hawkeye is super-hero Hawkeye. I don't think we've ever seen it in an ongoing, even in Avengers Spotlight.

    How so, if all anyone will do is compare it to Grell's Green Arrow.

    Thank you. The connection between the the two are superficial at best. Just their attitudes at the outset of each story seems vastly different. I doubt at any point in Clint's series that we'll see him kill for instance.

    How the hell did you manage to type this? Did it take you an absurd amount of time to avoid using proper spelling and/or grammar for visual funsies?

    Anyhow....I"m in for the art and for the duo-ship of the Hawkeyes.

    Speaking of She-Hulk, I hope she guests in this book. The relationship between Jen and Clint makes for good reading IMO; plus she can relate to him about what it is like to mentor a namesake (Lyra in her case).

This might be why they got rid of Mockingbird and replace Spider-Woman as his love interest in order to make him as appealing as Spider-Man.
    I'm not disagreeing with you, but my question is: Why did they even bother to bring back Mockingbird at all? They could've left that piece out during Secret Invasion and we would still have what we have today. It's like they thought, "We need to bring a dead person back in this - hey, how about Mockingbird!?" "yeah, that'd be cool" and then months later "okay, now what?"

    At least his old costume said "I don't give a s*** how silly I look, I'm a damn hero and I can still kick your a**." Now it seems like he's changed to make himself look cooler. If they're going for practical why not just go all out and have him wear regular military gear? What kind of d-bag walks around in sunglasses all day? There's no symbolic value; it actually seems MORE superficial than the old costume.

    I'd say that's the Bendis effect. We know McCann, who's a big classic Hawkeye fan, argued to have Mock come back. And she did. Then Bendis almost immediately decides that, nope, gotta have my favorite characters be front and center. We'll just push Mockingbird off to the side (oooh, and give her cool strength and toughness powers because there're no other characters with those abilities in all of comicdom!) and stick Jessica Drew in as Hawkeye's lover instead. Everyone must love Jessica Drew as much as I do, after all, that's why she was so prevalent for two decades before I took over. Heck, she's so great that I made a knockoff and had her shackup with my other favorite character!

    I didn't care for his work. Too much hawkeye/mockingbird drama IMO. pretty excited
    Ready for the return of the one and only Spider-Man!!

    I think had the H&M book been a success she'd be getting more face time elsewhere. It also doesn't help that the teams Bendis has for the Avengers books are probably too unwieldy for him to write effectively since between the the two sits a pretty good chunk of Marvel's top male lead heroes. All female characterization is met by one of the Jessicas.
