You thought it. I typed it.
Would Hawkeye be getting his own solo title if he wasn’t in the billion dollar movie “MARVEL’S THE AVENGERS”? Probably not. Does this mean we can expect a BLACK WIDOW ongoing? Probably not.
Which is too bad as I would be interested in Matt Fraction and David Aja’s take on Natasha more than another blonde dude with mid-class powers. I mean we had the IRON FIST series, right? This looks a lot of the same.
Don’t get me wrong. I like Hawkeye. My favorite Hawkeye moment is Avengers # 189 , when he was working security and had to fight Deathbird. The way he frustrated her ~ even though he was outclassed in power ~ taunting her, even kissing her ~ have to admit: Kinda hot!
And then there is Avengers#222 When She-Hulk gives him what for.
He’s bedded Black Widow, Scarlet Witch, Mockingbird, and Spider-Woman.
Is Clint Barton the he~whore of the Avengers?
Is it wrong?
Any-who, Hawkeye is the best there is at what he does ~ being a smart-ass! (With a smooth shaft. MMMMMMM…) and this series is going to tell you what he does when he isn’t being Earth’s Mightiest Stunt Cock: Like fall off bldgs., shatter his pelvis, harass the Russian mob, adopt a puppy…
Well, what did YOU do today?
The art is exactly the same as IRON FIST (except more use of purple here. Prince is a fan Natch!), which is good and bad. It’s good art ~ but a different look for a different hero might have been nice.
BTW not to be all 99%er but does anyone have sympathy for Clint’s universal health care and disregard for expensive wheel chairs, oh, but he’s in an apt. in bed-sty where the rent is not TOO BAD. He could be at Avengers Tower where no one would have to recognize him at all….YAWN !
A dog is dying ~ neighbors being evicted ~ And me with a big bag of money.
What to do, what to do… Hey, I’m still a super cool dude, right bro?!
Just like his hero Captain America, Hawkeye beats up some ethnic stereotypes and gives to the poor, by throwing bags of money at the rich! HOW REPUBLICAN! I’m sure it will trickle down at some point…. (Would have rather seen him use his bow in some clever way over his fists. Just sayin’. It’s kinda his thing. Unless we are going to rename him THE HAWKFIST, which Steele would totes love!).
Want to make him seem “EVERY MAN”, Matt? How about he doesn’t use the venger perks at all and tries to make it on his own, not pick and choose to “woe is me” us! No one with access to these things is going to just ignore them without a reason being established…. EVEN A CARNY!
…and the dog? Well, he had to be put down.
KIDDING! obviously he survived and is named ARROW which is like totes perfect for a hero that shoots arrows to have as a pet! ARROW! GET IT?! GET IT?!!!!!!
Hopefully there is going to be some story next issue. I get that this was an intro for those always present people who never read comics before but are going to now cause they saw a movie with a character in three scenes that was easy to mind control and sleeping most of the film, so it being their first issue, let’s cater to them over say, fans who have been around 40 years!
(Not me, I meant LegionTonyL!)
~ Please notice Sarospice didn’t make any lame STRAIGHT AS AN ARROW puns. She’s saving those for the review of issue #2!
