    He actually looks like a badass when he's not getting his ass kicked in a bar.

    Well to be fair, technically you cant get your ass kicked when you run away, leaving your friend behind to get his ass kicked.

    The carrier reminds me of the G.I Joe carrier toy from the 80's

    The Widow enters the battle with guns and looks confident.
    Hawkeye enters the battle with a bow and arrows and looks... concerned.

    I was hoping Hawkeye would have his cool mask since they let Cap keep his.

    I find it interesting that we've seen Hawkeye and Black Widow together for the most part...they were partners when they were introduced in Ultimates 2 I believe.

    They were partners in the early days of the MU as well, when they were Iron Man villains. Also, they were partners working for SHIELD in Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes.

    Yeah that's right. I keep forgetting their partnership in 616. I just have a recollect of Ultimates 2 because I haven't read early Avengers in a very long time. Probably since I was a teen.

    but in fairness, that one picture of one moment in time, it should not be reflective of anything but that.

    Besides im sure he is just focused on his aim, and it will take some strength to pull the bow back, this isnt a kids bow you pick up at the Robin Hood museum in Nottingham.

    As for them seemingly being together alot, I kinda figured, it was both because they were characters associated with SHIELD, and whilst they may share a poster, they are not worthy of a poster in there own right.

    That said if Marvel want to make a Hawkeye and BlackWidow prequel movie, which covers there relationship up to "The Avengers" I have no objection to that.

    it was Ultimates 1 volume 2 where Hawkeye and Black Widow were partnered, taking on the Chi'tauri. they weren't partnered together so much in Ultimates 2 since BW was into IM.

    That's right. For some reason I thought it was the second volume...but yeah it was the second half of the first volume. Didn't Loeb or someone have one of them betray the Ultimates but this was a ruse or a retcon? I can't remember now because Clint's now a bad ass thanks to Hickman.

    Compound bows are much easier to pull back, when fully extended the pully system alleviates a lot of the effort necessary to keep it pulled back, you barely feel the strain.

    I have one myself (albeit a smaller metal one) and it's so much easier to use than the longbow.
