Clint: I go online. I look to see what people are saying about us. Sure, we all do. Every one of us. Except maybe, I don’t know…Thor. And maybe Wolverine. Mmm, I bet Wolverine does, too. Anyone who says they don’t is a liar. And my favorite topic of discussion—the one that I find the most amusing…is when people spout off about “who is worthy to be an Avenger?” “What does it take?” “Who are the real Avengers?” And all I can gather from the internet is that nobody is. Except maybe Captain America. — From New Avengers v2, #16 by Brian Michael Bendis, art by Mike Deodato

#this… is actually really amazing #Clint you beautiful creature you #a reminder that Clint is all sass when integrity is threatened #a lot of the Avengers come from messed up homes or have pretty shit lives in general #the fact they band together and take on shit the world is threatened with is pretty great of them #considering they’ve been kicked to the curb by life in a lot of circumstances #and especially considering not all the Avengers are ‘supers’ either

Clint speaks for us all. Jarvis deserves all the vacation. All of it.

Clint’s jokes are terrible and he knows it. But yet…

"Shut up about my stuff—I know it’s a mess and it’s half-taped together and it’s old and busted—but it’s MINE. And you gotta make that work, right? You gotta make your own stuff work out."

Clint’s toeing the line. For now. You don’t expect this to last forever, do you?

"Have you seen this piece a’ garbage?" is a scary way to start a conversation with Clint. Oh shit, here he goes again…

There are few things more annoying to Clint than having to sit and wait. Trapped? Gotta blow the thing up. Can’t blow the thing up? Complain that there’s nobody powerful enough to blow the thing up. Villain monologuing? Threaten to blow the thing up, regardless of past effectiveness.

Oddly, I think this means Clint would be terrible to watch art films with. “What did that mean? Why did they just do that? This is so frustrating!” ‘But how does he deal with Blade Runner?’ you ask? Easy: according to Clint, in one version Deckard’s decisively a Replicant, and in another he’s decisively not. None of that wishy-washy “maybe” stuff.

So long, Squadron. Hello, Haywire (except we basically never see him again). Clint really felt a kinship with Haywire over their similar losses. Must have affected him; it’s not often he does an end of issue “moral of the story” speech.

The Clint Barton guide to villain public relations:

  1. If they’re a dirtbag, call ‘em a dirtbag.
  2. Consider flirting to put them off balance.
  3. Arrows
  4. Once they’re beat, tell ‘em to put a sock in it.
