I hope they don't kill BP. I really hope not.

then you clearly never read any 80s Avengers or West Coast Avengers. "Avengers don't kill" was practically his battle cry.

That's is stupid. That is amazingly mind boggingly stupid. It makes the way he first killed Hawkeye brillant in comparison.


Don't worry, BP, will be brought back at some point and hopefully this god awful crossover is retconned out of existence( Wishful thinking on my part).

Nope, I didn't, because I wasn't born then. But I did read Busiek's Avengers and Thunderbolts, and it didn't stick in my mind.

It's pretty obvious that Age Of Ultron is an alternate reality like Age Of Apocalypse or Rotworld.

Agreed. Besides, it was Iron Man's fault. :P

Look, I was a big pre-Bendis Hawkeye fan, he was my favourite part of Busiek's Avengers and the reason why I love the Thunderbolts, but I see no problem with his development. It stands to reason in my eyes that once Clint had been killed and came back to life himself, he would have a different perspective and be OK with killing people, especially with all of the dark stuff that happened.

The guy's only superpower is that he uses a weapon that is designed to kill, it makes sense, and frankly, I never noticed the whole 'never kill' part of his character, to me, that's more of a Spider-Man thing, or a Daredevil thing when he's contrasted with the Punisher.


I'm not going to debate about whether or not Hawkeye should kill or shouldn't kill. That is a completely different issue. The problems that I have with the way that Bendis writes Hawkeye can pretty much be summed up in the interaction he had with Scott Summers from the latest issue of Uncanny X-Men. Hawkeye, a member of the Avengers, decides to take it upon himself to threaten to put an arrow between Scott's eyes in the middle of the day while people are watching. He made it perfectly clear to the entire world that if Scott didn't surrender he would kill him. My problem with the way that Bendis writes Hawkeye is the fact that Bendis's Hawkeye doesn't think. We all know that Hawkeye can be pretty brash but as you pointed out, he doesn't have an actual superpower. Hawkeye needs to be smart, he needs to be able to think on his feet, and he needs to be able to adapt so that he can keep up and stand side by side with Earth's Mightiest Heroes. Otherwise, what is the difference between Clint Barton and any other man or woman who wants to throw on a costume and join the Avengers?

Hawkeye has always been a bit foolhardy, his way of trying to join the Avengers was by breaking into their Mansion and kidnapping their butler (I know Joe Casey retconned that a bit, but still).

I know that in the past, Hawkeye has been a bit foolhardy and I don't have a problem with it occasionally but Bendis' Hawkeye is always foolhardy. He is always making impetuous decisions. Bendis' Hawkeye never stops and thinks, he always just rushes blindly in to whatever dangerous situation that Bendis wants to put him in and usually his solution is always, I'm gonna kill it! He's a very flat, one dimensional character. Look at Fraction's Hawkeye. Yes, Fraction's Hawkeye is still a bit foolhardy but he is still smart about the way that he does things. There is absolutely no way that you could read "My Life as a Weapon" and say that Fraction's Hawkeye is one dimensional.

But is it really?

I mean we really want it to be, Marvel should have just not published it since it's super late, totally out of step, and well....just flat out bad so far.

Since this event has been telegraphed in other comics for the better part of a year it's pretty obviously not.

Are you reading the same comic as everyone else or was it too long ago for you to remember?
