"I CAN DO IT ALL BY MYSELF!"

No Clint, you can’t. Not all the time.

The Albino? Somehow that doesn’t seem kosher as a villain name…

This happens a lot, doesn’t it? Clint gets competitive about his gear and then it’s trick arrows vs. gadgets everywhere. That’s fine if he’s got a teammate to take advantage of the distraction, but c’mon, man…

Clint Barton: sick of your prejudiced shit.

I’ve seen other posts saying Clint would be the Avenger most likely to have a Tumblr. Here’s how I see that working out:

  1. A couple posts of funny stuff.
  2. Days of no posting whatsoever.
  3. A blitz of social justice posts on a single issue (corrupt cops/ignorant bullies/whatever the problem of the day is).
  4. Silence from Clint’s blog; meanwhile posts about a purple-masked Avenger getting into fights with the people causing said problem start to appear elsewhere.
  5. Clint loses his social media privileges for a month.
  6. Repeat.

"I have a plan." "You have a plan?" "I have part of a plan."

I have a feeling Clint and Peter Quill would get along quite well. Either that or everything would be on fire within a few minutes.

Ah, good ol’ Oddball. Wait, who? Seriously, is this guy even in the Top Ten as far as Clint’s Hawkeye-specific rogues gallery?

Affectionate Clint is affectionate. Like maybe just a little too affectionate? To his credit, Clint backs off when Angelica expresses annoyance, but I don’t think it’s even about that, since it’s right in front of Vance, who’s kind of her boyfriend. I think Clint’s just starved for love all the time. He’s probably still off balance from getting over losing Bobbi. He seems to always have a hug for his friends. And another thing, this issue more than others has Clint being written with a pretty ornate wit, very Robin Hood or Scarlet Pimpernel, even as that sort of banter was getting phased out. Seems like he wants to impress someone, anyone. Dude’s lonely.

Mmm, yes. Trick arrows. The Leaper has to land somewhere, maybe an adhesive arrow’s a smart move. Maybe this comic doesn’t suck as much as I thought.

You ever wonder “Gosh, how are they saying all that in one panel?” when reading old comics? I do.
