Please tell me I am not the only one who didn’t know Hawkeye is mostly deaf.
You’re not. The comics don’t bring it up very much, and you almost never see the hearing aids he wears to compensate.
Actually, his hearing was supposed to have been totally restored a few years ago, so as far as I know he’s not deaf at this moment. But I’m a little out of the loop so it’s possible he was deafened again at some point.
Reading Dark Avengers
Can NOT deal with Morgana La Fey’s outfit. It’s not JUST the dress cut down to her navel and up to her hips. It’s not JUST the belt that is clearly not holding ANYTHING together. It’s also THE FUCKING HEELS. SHE IS IN 640 AD WHERE THE FUCK DID SHE GET THREE-INCH PUMPS.
Also, the so-called “full collection” hardback is missing issues 7 and 8. If those are “Clint tied to a chair naked” issues, Shit. Is. Going. Down.
Dark Avengers #7-8 are part of “Utopia,” a crossover with Uncanny X-Men, which is probably reprinted in its own collection. You’re not missing anything in those two issues, though—they’re more about the X-Men and Osborn’s attempt to create a “Dark X-Men” team, with the actual Dark Avengers mostly sidelined.
However, the “Clint tied to a chair naked” story is not from Dark Avengers at all. I’m pretty sure it was from a one-shot called Dark Reign: The List—Avengers #1, which was probably collected in yet another collected edition.
So yeah, this is where comics can be kind of annoying.
I’m reading The Avengers vol 1 and am I the only one who doesn’t like Clint Barton as Goliath?
I WANT HAWKEYE BACK
He becomes Hawkeye again in issue #98, just hang in there. It’ll be worth it.
A Totally (in)Sincere Complaint to the Makers of Hawkguy
You guys broke my grandma.
I was re-reading some Hawkguy while visiting her and she looked over at what I was reading and asked to see some more of the “pretty boy”. So I flipped through some pages for her forgetting for a moment forgetting that it was the issue with this panel:
I tried to flip past it quickly so she wouldn’t think I was into some weird porn or something but she told me to go back. Then she looked at it and started laughing so hard I was afraid she’d have a stroke or something. Now she wants to paint a huge version of it on her wall! She’s already sketched it out and everything.
I demand that you fix my grandmother right now!
I demand that you show us pictures of the wall!
