Thank you that and he isn't as cocky as he should be

Remender really brought out his cocky attitude in Secret Avengers

while simultaneously making him bad ass. His series is great, but that aspect of Clint's character is missing.

True, I would like Fraction touch on that cocky attitude when he is with other heroes to show how much he steps up everyone else game. Hawkeye on any team is Key because he reminds them to do their best as he has no powers but gives it his all everyday he is with them.

Just a fantastic character and a run that in the beginning is shaping up to be one of the more memorable early in this decade.

He strikes me as plenty cocky. Walking headlong into that bro gang takes balls. Could be that he talks a bigger game when he's in groups though.

Hmm I'm going to have to re-read some of his mini's now.

The man has balls and isn't a bad leader

one of my favorite moments from Earth's Mightiest Heroes. A room full of superheroes and the one that steps in between Hulk and The Thing has no powers.

@Blood1991: I've always thought that he was a cool character and one with great leadership potential. I love that he's essentially Marvel's every-man even more so than Spider-Man.

Fraction's series has done a great job of bringing that to the forefront, while Secret Avengers brought in his leadership. It isn't discussed much on Comicvine, but 2012 was a great year for Hawkeye.

That's because it was given to Kate Bishop. ;)

Hawkeye was actually one of my favorite characters in the cartoon. Nice thread, Blood.

@Storm Calling: Cartoon Hawkeye was great. Who ever did his facial expressions deserves a medal.

@White Mage: Hey he could have been turned into a pulp of blood and arrow shafts for that.

Also got a new teaser for Age of Ultron

Marvel goes in and out of treating him like sh!t and actually progressing the character. I'd give Fraction and Remender a hug for doing him so much justice over the last year.

It was mostly a joke, because the thread was so slow.

Side note

If you guys didn't know Hawkeye issue 7 goes towards the Hurricane Sandy Relief effort, but Fraction has added some extra incentive.

  1. Go to the Red Cross disaster relief donation page;
  2. Fill out your donation information;
  3. Where it says IN HONOR OF put HAWKGUY & YOUR NAME;
  4. Take a screen cap of JUST the IN HONOR OF PART (we don’t need to know how much you gave, that you gave is enough);
  5. Email or tweet the screen cap to me @kellysue or Fraction @mattfraction and we’ll put it up on our tumblrs tagged #hawkguy;
  6. Sit back and let’s see how we do.

So go buy a couple of issues of 7 "even if you don't usually get Hawkeye get an Issue of Hawkeye" and if you would like donate to the Red Cross and screen cap it to Matt Fraction's Twitter.

I enjoy it, but at moments Clint doesn't seem himself and I fear that his solo persona will start eating away at the character he is outside of it. It is missing the alot of the cockiness I love about the character and the amount of trouble he has with common thugs bugs the sh!t outta me.

That's my biggest problem.Kate Bishop seems more dangerous than Hawkeye.Hawkeye fighting skills are so pathetic in that sereis I know he was never the best fighter but he is far beeter than the way he's been potrayed in the current series,I miss the way he was written in Hawkeye & Mockingbird.I also enjoyed the way Bendis wrote him in Avengers

Fraction is basically in this series to eventually write a Kate Bishop series "which is fine, but remember who the star is" I enjoyed Remender's version in Secret Avengers and Yes Hawkeye was epic in Hawkeye and Mockingbird!

Dinosaur noises just for sh!ts and giggles. How can you not love this guy?

I go in and out with Bendis. I'm especially not a fan of Hawkeye and Spider-Woman :/

@Blood1991 The H&M mini was spose to be a ongoing but Marvel changed their minds after issue 4 . I really didn't like Widowmaker to much. McCann really saved that mini with his writing. I found McCann's style really paid homage to Hawkeye and how he had developed of the decades as a character.

Now I love this new series and love how it shows Clint as Clint not Hawkeye. But I feel it would be better if they brought in charatcers that help shape him.  

 Like Crossfire : That man hates Clint with every fibre. 

Barney Barton : His recently resurrected older brother now takes the title of Trickshot.. He hates Clint for letting him die.(the first time). 
 
Baron Zemo : Still wants Hawkeye to suffer for ruining his love life with Moonstone and using her moonstones.

With the nature of the book I could see Barney, but the other two not as much "Though it would be cool". However, I could easily see the Oddball since he is more or less a joke anyway.

I should ask Fraction if he plans on using any of Clint's bad guys.
