In the movies he really doesn't. Well, maybe Black Widowy stuff. Hawkeye is a total ringer if he's supposed to be totally unagumented human.Originally Posted by carabas
Besides, why is Captain America and the super serum even worth bothering with if agents regular folks can become almost as bad ass just by training hard?

I would have no hesitation about lending my car to Captain America.
You can trust your car to the man who wears a star.
If society is content to do monstrous things, it must not be surprised upon creating a monster.
I just watched all of the Bourne films in the last couple days, and honestly, if people can believe that Matt Damon can do the kinds of feats he pulls off in those movies, they can believe that Hawkeye can shoot some arrows and kick ass with expert skill.
Captain America was lifting up motorcycles (with people on them) over his head in his movie. I'm sure Black Widow and Hawkeye aren't quite on that level.
Personally, I thought Widow's agility was completely ridiculous though it was comic book accurate given how over-the-top her martial prowess is in the comics. She came off as super human in comparison to Hawkeye and she's not. I think I would have liked her a bit more had they toned that down a notch, Maria Hill was a far more interesting take on a tough as nails soldier-spy.
I want a lot more Hawkeye in the sequel though, but I'll settle for Hawkeye doing his thing in Fraction and Aja's comic, and in Renner's case, The Bourne Legacy.
Seeing the film a second time was fun, but the characters/elements I didn't like still remain. The only sequel I'm not looking forward to is Thor 2, so seeing this a second time makes me giddy for Captain America 2 more than anything. Love Chris Evans as Steve and am glad that Whedon had some sense of the character this time around.
Wake me up when it's over...
Finally decided to go see the movie. Well, I was not disappointed. I was quite impressed by the performances of the actors who played Thor and Loki; I hadn't seen the Thor movie, because I'm generally not that interested in that character, Mr. Hemsworth portrayed him with charm. In fact, I think all six Avengers came out well. Downey Jr. was great as ever, Captain America felt like the Cap I know and love, without having seen the First Avenger movie.
Mayyybe the weak links in the line-up were Widow and Hawkeye. Widow gets some good ass-kicking scenes, but at times it felt like she was falling into some old-fashioned female character tropes which I wasn't expecting in a Whedon creation. While Hawkeye is basically one of the bad guys in the first two thirds of the movie. There's this scene toward the end where Widow, Hawkeye, and Cap get together in Manhattan against the Chitauri hordes, and that's where you realise that these three are the 'street levellers', when you compare them to Thor (god), Iron Man (hi-tech mech suit), and Hulk (virtually indestructible).
That having been said, I really really liked this movie, it imo did a fine job introducing its characters (also if you haven't seen previous movies or read the comics), keeping up the characterisation bits to keep your interest invested in them, and displaying some great special effects. Anyone stay around for the credits? The crew of animators and special effects people was huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge.
Sadly, the theatre I went to didn't show the after-credits shoarma scene, though that OTHER after-credits scene did show up... and was pretty cool imo.
So, yes, yay Avengers. I liked it better than the X-Men movie. ANY X-Men movie.

It would have been nice to see Cap enter the Hulk fight before Thor came along. But it was probably more important to see him work with Stark after they were bickering. There's always Avengers too.
So I've been a little late to the Avengers party. For a long time I had known what happened, but hadn't actually seen most of the film. I recently got a chance to see it and..I know a lot of people won't agree..but I was a tad disappointed. Let me first say why: the hype surrounding it. I've been hearing a lot about it and how good it is since it came out and...I guess I'd overhyped it in my mind.
Now I thought it was a good film and I did enjoy it immensely..I just wish that perhaps I hadn't really paid attention to the hype.

i thought it was the best team superhero movie since x-men 2
