Hawkeye is one of those poor characters who also seems to be the butt of jokes for his lack of powers. The Matt Fraction & David Aja series from 2012 is widely regarded as one of Hawkeye's best, so we thought we'd see what it had to offer.

But wait... Clint Barton and Kate Bishop are BOTH Hawkeye around this time. Is that okay? (It's fine.)

There's a bonus Young Avengers story in this volume too, which we read before jumping over to The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck #8, which gave us a taste of that classic DUCK RAGE.

What is an Eternal?

They got a whole movie but we have no idea. We decided the Neil Gaiman & John Romita, Jr. 6-issue miniseries from 2006 would be a decent place to start. Apparently it was so good they gave it a 7th issue! Wow, good job Eternals.

And of course, we continued our read of The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck with issue #7.

The number 7 is all over this episode. Numerology nerds take note.

Next Time - Hawkeye: My Life as a Weapon by Matt Fraction & David Aja (Hawkeye (2012) #1-5 + Young Avengers Presents #6)
