I'd have my kid put up posters of Hawkeye on his wall before that tool Cyclops any day!
ha! If wolverine is mentoring there is no reason why Barton cant.
In many ways this quote sums up many of my thoughts on the matter.
Granted Clint isn't your typical teacher, but having him mentoring will be interesting. See, one of the defining facts about Clint's personal history is that each and every father figure/mentor/role model he ever had screwed up sooner or later. Just for the sake of example: his father was an abusive prick, the Swordsman and Trickshot turned out to be criminals, his big brother recently became a criminal too. SO Clint has plenty of expereince about bad mentors, which might be an advantage.
Now, I'm not saying that his character and behaviour aren't an issue. He's sarcastic, hot-headed, anti-authoritarian (even when he's in charge) and tend to think with his guts (to be polite). Still, beyond all of this he knows how much a bad teacher can screw up your life, so I think he will work really hard to prevent himself from repeating hte same errors he was once subjected to.
