90% of Marvel characters will take him down easily "Completely false.
why does nobody like hawkeye?
i like hawkeye. and i like him more than green arrow who i never really cared much about until his current series (thank u krul and neves). and several people commented on hawkeye's color scheme, i think it looks cool, it helps that blue is my fav color and purple is one of my other favs. i actually like several archers, including shaft from youngblood. but back to hawkeye, he has been in some mini's that i would like to check out.
I like Hawkeye. That cowl and mask he wears is cool. I don't care what anybody says, the purple and blue make him unique. He was a circus performer after all. His look is one that makes him more than just another archer. The other thing is, he's got no powers, but is useful to the Avengers. That makes him cooler. He's smooth with the ladies too. Too bad there gonna take away what's unique about him in the movie.
" I think he is very complex character. And a very cool one at that. Yet he doesn't have the fame someone like Green Arrow does.????????????????????? "Green Arrow has the following few things going for him:
Better supporting cast: Black Canary,Harper,Hawke,Mia,Eddie fryers etc
Better villians: Onomapoaiea(spelling),Constantine Drakon,and at one point or another Lady Shiva and Deathstroke.
Better stories:For some reason Arrow can hold entire ongoings worth a 100 or so issues.Has Hawkeye ever exceeded 50?
I for one like both. As they are both the archer based characters for the two main publishers of comics. I can't really say who I like more. But I've been a fan of Hawkeye a lot longer than Green Arrow. Hawkeye is the only Avenger I even like. The rest of them I can't stand. And to those of you that say Hawkeye is worthless because he has no superpowers, that is just lame. Captain America is far more lame than Hawkeye. He was a skinny little runt that gets a serum injected to make him bigger and he runs around tossing shields. Yea real cool. Hawkeye is a master archer. A REAL precision shooter.
@TDK_1997: I'm the opposite. I like Hawkeye more and didn't learn about Green Arrow until I got more into comics.
LOL. Major fail on my part. I guess now I know why Everyone uses GA as a shortened version for Green Arrow, but still spell out Hawkeye.
Allow me to correct my post.
I like both, GA a tad bit more, however I think Hawkeye is more likeable.
@ReVamp: I'll agree with you that Ollie is easier to like. But Clint has that badass "I know I'm the best" attitude that you can't help but like because its true.You know why he has that "I know i'm the best" attitude? Because he earned it in his life. Where as Ollie was a rich playboy who had accesses to whatever he wanted because he was rich. Clint worked hard for everything he had . The man could have been the next captain america because he was the closest thing to being Steve without the SS juice. He stood toe to toe with the likes of Electra and Iron Fist and Iron fist even called him his equal in combat. (And he uses Mystic Martial Arts). He out witted a elder of the universe with a game of chance. He beat the Shi'ar villain Deathbird (who is no easy task) and pisses her off by kissing her.
Clint Barton no matter what universe he is in is the BEST Human hero EVER in my mind. He is a man who no matter what obstacles and heart aches came his way pushed through and raised above all expectations.
Plus he is in love with the hottest woman in Marvel still (Mockingbird) Bring Back the series!!!!
@IAMtheHERO said:You can only say that Green Arrow has better things in all of those areas because Hawkeye doesn't have them at all.He doesn't have his own book,he doesn't have a supporting cast, and he doesn't have villains aside from the Circus of Crime however Shiva and Deathstroke aren't Green Arrow villains.They are more Batman villains than anything.Hawkeye's purpose is being an Avenger.He isn't one of the originals but he is a veteran and he has been a valid part of the team since his creation." I think he is very complex character. And a very cool one at that. Yet he doesn't have the fame someone like Green Arrow does.?????????????????????

Ever since Jim Mccann arrived on the scene , Clint has had more life in his role in Marvel. He really made Crossfire into a more "Hawkeye" Specific villain in marvel and Mockingbird with the rest of the WCA are awsome supporting characters. The H&M series was amazing too bad marvel put all their eggs in one basket and cancelled all the series they started. Now with Barney Barton as the new Trickshot that brings Hawkeye villains to 2 by my count. I think Marvel are idiots for getting rid of Mccann as writer for Hawkeye.
@__anubis__: Some people actually like to see a character with no special powers on these teams. He doesn't NEED powers. Heck, he doesn't even need to be rich. It's called an underdog. People like 'em. The world ain't all about power.
@rabbit_tots: He makes purple work.
Here's the thing: most people love Hawkeye. It's just that haters and DC fans who assume he has no originality(they both use bows! IT'S A RIPOFF! Mockingbird and Nightwing both have fighting sticks! IT'S A RIPOFF!) decide to rant about how terrible a character he is more often than the people who love Hawkeye decide to talk about how great he is. He's cool. He's original. Haters gonna hate. Haters gotta deal with it.
