Clint's Powers

#1 Posted by danhimself (22305 posts) - - Show Bio

So during New Avenger issues 55-57 they went up against the Wrecking Crew who had the help of the power inhibitor that the Avengers had planned to use against the Dark Avengers.  The only hero left standing while the inhibitor was activated was Bobbi aka Mockingbird.  Why did Clint go down?  Did he recieve some sort of unknown ability when he was resurrected by the Scarlet Witch in House of M?

I think Bendis wrote this and didn't consider everyone on the team doesn't have powers.Clint only had powers when he was Giant Man.Nothing more.If he received some sort of ability from Scarlet Witch there was nothing said or shown from it.

@Vance Astro:
maybe something left from his time as Giant Man?

I think its lame that the power inhibitor didn't just nullify their powers but seemed to take down anyone with powers. Nearly all of the people there have experienced losing their powers at one time or another so I think they should have been able to deal with not having any powers. Would have been a better issue if their powers for turned off and they still beat the bad guys.

It's possible.I hate how Bendis leaves things open ended with no background for us to actually figure it out.This could be a screw up,he could have powers that we haven't seen yet,this could be left overs from the Pym particles.It could be anything.Now thinking about this comic.I think the solicits for an upcoming comic just gave away what will happen to Cage.

Best bet is that it's from the Pym Particles unless it's something Wanda did when she resurrected him post-HoM. What bothered me most was that they didn't question why Clint was subjected to it when he didn't really have powers, which leads me to believe that either Bendis slipped up and it'll come up sometime later or it's just the Pym Particles.
 
Either way, it's not a bad arc, IMO. Immonen's art seems a little out of element following Tan and Yu but I've always been a fan.

Well they've had a member missing from the team since day one and nobody ever bothered to look for her or really care where she is so the fact nobody questioned a man with no powers being hurt by something that takes them away doesn't surprise me.

Is anyone really surprised that Bendis made a screw-up with the Avengers? Not like he hasn't been screwing up with them for a few years now.

I think it could be specifically because of his resurrection by Scarlet Witch. It even states in the issue that they thought he did not have powers.

won't matter she is supposed to die in the coming issue or issues anyhow.
