Hawkeye.
Hawkguy?
Hawkeye.
Bro, that’s right, I’m Team Hawkguy, bro.

i have Hawkeye on my phone lockscreen. i have Hawkeye on my phone wallpaper.
i have digital copies of the all around awesome Fraction comic series as well as the monthly issues and the then compiled editions because i love the art and i love the story and i love agent barton and i love pizza dog. the comic series doesn’t have any huge action battle scenes. very un-comic book like. but what it does have is lots and lots of panels of Clint’s face. usually confused or stressed or bruised or surprised. he’s just a man. a dude. kinda a mess of a dude. he’s all sore muscles and avoiding phone calls and a haphazard yet easy-going landlord that can’t seem to hook-up his own cable connection. he drinks too much coffee and seems to only eat pizza and is bad with all kinds of relationships. he wears a santa hat and watches Dog Cops and fights the mob.

he’s a human dude with a lot of bravery and vulnerability. and despite all the quippy jokes and clowing around this prankster sometimes makes, i’m not sure this blend seems very Clint Barton to me. my Clint is a mix of damaged yet optimistic fuck-up and confident independent killing machine. and the flavors here are bit too bright to express all his complex qualities.

but OBVIOUSLY i have a lot of Hawkeye feeels so i suspect that maybe just maybe my vision is a little muddied.

the gunpowder wasn’t really noticeable in my first cup, and i hope that comes out more in the future. i’ll brew it for longer next time for sure. on the plus side, the lemon grass and coconut flavors make this a very very drinkable tea overall. so i’ll have no problem enjoying the tea itself :)

“Boomerang Arrow, Kate— it comes back to you in the end. Boomerang. Respect it.”
“Why the hell do you need an arrow that comes back to you after you shoot it, Clint?”
“Because… BOOMERANGS”

bro, totally awesome, bro! mad props ;)

OMGsrsly

Hawkguy! I keep seeing bits of it on tumblr, and it looks so interesting. :)

I do archery, so naturally I love anyone who shoots. I feel like I should know more about original Hawkeye though. What did you think about Hawkeye in the Avengers movies? Just curious :)

OMGsrsly

Not enough Hawkeye. IMO. But then, I fell asleep during the Avengers, so maybe I’m not the best source. :D

hey isaila, i feel like i saw you mention archery in a comment once and that’s when i followed you. one of my roommates has a whole collection of these little archery pin awards? and when the weather gets warmer we plan to maybe/hopefully set up some targets in the back yard. (i tried archery out a few times when i was younger.)
the second Avengers movie promises to have much more of Hawkeye in it than the first one. cuz, ya know, in the first one he was mostly possessed and stuff.
as Marvel tends to do, i think their casting in the movie is impeccable. and it’s hard to talk about comics often because there are always multiple interpretations and reinterpretations going on, but in truth, the Renner Hawkeye is kinda what helped bring the new comic/cartoon Hawkeye into it’s modern Hawkguy brilliance.

damnit i could ramble forever about this crap. if you haven’t looked into Kate Bishop Hawkeye you might really like her. she is also in the new comics.
i also love Green Arrow. read many of the comics, enjoyed his Smallville presence, and currently watch the show Arrow with enthusiasm. basically, archers in fiction are perma-loners and their politics tend to be more radical and isn’t there just something so poetic about the bow and arrow?!
