Why is Hawkeye such a beast?

#1 Posted by MethodMan008 (74 posts) - - Show Bio

So I have been reading a lot of the Ultimates lately and Hawkeye seems like one of the best on the team...  


I was wondering are there any dedicated Hawkeye books, and is it ever explained how he is such an amazing shot?

in the ultimate universe he is constantly doing epic stuff in the 616 he is rarely the main focus anymore sadly

@Man of Lengend: @spiderbat87: 
No kidding, Hawkeye routinely takes out rooms full of dudes in a split second... Cap surely can't do that.

Ultimate Hawkeye is like Bullseye, Punisher and Deadshot combined and given the Power Gem.

have you read Steve Rogers: Super Solider? He takes out a room full of guys amped on the super solider serum while his is deactivated

@spiderbat87: I have not read it.  :P  But I definitely should of been more clear, I'm talking about the Ultimate universe..  and I mean Hawkeye drops whole rooms of people in like a second.  No doubt Captain could decimate the same room of people, it would just take him longer.

Maybe they made a mistake and Ultimate Hawkeye is in fact the one from Earth 616.

He is the best natural weapons handler in the marvel universe.  He can even handle cap's shield effectively with riccochet effect and everything.  This makes him the most dangerous man on most teams, while armed.

while i dislike 2/3 of the personalities of the ultimate universe i gotta say i prefer ultimate hawkeye over 616 anyday, and hawkeye is one of my fav characters

well Cap did free fall 600 ft unaided into a river then tab 5 miles to an enemy camp then he took out the whole camp single handedly and rescued all the hostages without losing any

Ultimate Hawkeye is my favorite character. I like all of the Ultimate characters because I feel that this universe is by far superior to the mainstream one. All the characters are beastly compared to their mainstream counterparts. Ultimate Cap acts more like US Agent than normal Cap. I love it.

Recently in the 616 universe there have been 3ish.

 

Hawkeye and Mockingbird (6 Issues)
Widowmaker (4 issues)

Hawkeye: Blindspot (4 Issues)

 

They have ran one after the other, and Blind Spot has just finished.
