Anyone See Any Resemblance From Hawkeye to Green Arrow?
I personally like both characters, (all though Green Arrow was cooler to me in the JLU cartoon...) but yeah, I like both Green Arrow and Hawkeye, so what if they are similar, if you look close enough you'll find things similar in every character, but it doesn't really bother me. (Although I do like Hawkeye more :P)
That has never ever occurred to me. Ever.
"Both are archers, both use special arrows to fight crime, both are members of their univeres' most popular groups (Justice League/ Avengers) And what about their subsequent love interests? Black Canary and Mockingbird. Come on Marvel, at least try. "
They are a lot like each other. But Hawkeye has a way more interesting background. Oliver was just another billionare turned crime fighter, where Hawkeye grew up in an orphan, trained at a circus, and turned vigilante hero, and then earned his spot as an Avenger. Green Arrow is a way lamer Batman.
Even though Marvel tends to copy they still manage to be unique.
Look at the JLA. DC was the first to have a comic featuring a team of heroes. Marvel's answer to that was the Fantastic Four. It was really the first time that superheroes had normal or even tragic problems. That's how the industry works, lol.
But back on topic, OF COURSE THEY'RE THE SAME, lol. I like both characters. Clint especially though. He's always been one of my favorite Avengers.
"The Squadron Supreme was designed after DC characters on purpose. Every single one of them is based off Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, etc.
both are from Squadron Supreme ...........................hmmmm remind you of some people
I thought GA only became a relevant character (when he stopped ripping off Batman (who in turn is based on Zorro)) after his reboot in the late 60's. Hawkeye was created in 64, became an Avenger in '65 right? Maybe Marvel did look into GA's old comics, but Hawkeye had a much better origin and evolution, methinks. Besides, didn't Clint outclassed Ollie in JLA/Avengers and even stole his girl? Hehe, just kidding.
