No thread for this yet? It was fucking great, I haven't been liking Diggle's Tbolts as much as I expected, and Bullseye hasn't really been featured in Dark Avengers, but this was more like it, Bullseye is such a great character, and it was great seeing him corrupt the good Hawkeye name.
Basically, plotwise, the Dark Avengers (sans Sentry and Captain Marvel) fight a runaway Hulkbuster robot, Bullseye/Hawkeye blows it up, killing 60 civilians in the process. Norman passes this off as the robot killing them, and that it was a terrorist.
Then, in an intense scene, Norman tells Bullseye/Hawkeye off, saying he needs to control himself, and that he is actually trying to be a hero.
Then, Bullseye/Hawkeye is out 'on patrol', when he comes across a woman about to be mugged (raped?), after dispatching the muggers in a brutal fashion, he then proceeds to kill the woman with the pen she gave him so he could give her an autograph! Amazing scene! He then sends the last remaining mugger to an explosive death as he crashes onto some cop cars.
And to top it all off, this is all caught on TV cameras! To be continued!
Pretty awesome huh? This was a seriously good comic, one of the best of the current Dark Reign era, it showed how fucked Norman's team is, and was a good bit of satire too, Norman having Ben Urich arrested just by saying 'National Security', for example, a really black comedy.
Diggle really gets Bullseye, he is deadly, but not necessarily crazy, he just wants to kill people, especially Daredevil. I can't wait to see where he takes this, and when the real Hawkeye (Ronin) shows up and they go at it, and maybe if this will play into Diggle's run on the Daredevil book.
