that's a good point. he has to feel a lot of guilt over exposing her mother to harm. hawkeye is well known for making poor judgements based on emotions...but the result of this one is the worst by far. |
: I think Hawkeye is also "putting up"
: with Bobbi because he knows she's being put
: threw a seriously emotional ringer right now
: and doesn't want to alienate her too much,
: especially since he did put her mother in

: I agree with Onceonly about Hawk being

: putting up with that nonsense for long. I'll
: let it go this time because he's probably
: still really happy and excited to have her
: back. He's not one to take orders from
: anyone however (especially when he's morally

: I LOVED the swords though! Totally makes

: and he just had several adventures as Ronin.
: I hope he sneaks in use of the Nunchucks
: too. I like to see Clint portrayed as a

: overall a good issue. i was kind of glad to
: see mock's mom survive...it would have been
: unfortunate to introduce her just to knock
: her off. i always tend to think there is so
: much more potential in a living character,
: and killing anyone in comics is a lame
: attention grabber and almost always gets

: i like mock setting hawkeye in line about
: who's in charge...but i don't see hawkeye
: taking it for too long if he's written in

: like a whipping boy in this issue.
: so it took hawk only 3 issues to smack dom?
: hawkeye has to fight virtually every male

: like he has to throw down with them...then
: he respects them...i wouldn't be surprised
: to see a slow respect grow....provided dom

: crossfire and P.R. still seem kinda goofy to
: me overall, but came off ok in this one.
: glad to seee crossfire acknowledge
: "trading up" and getting rid of
: the juggling act.
: ok...we know they got out...but how? and
: who broke the mind control first?
: and another question? i didn't mind hawkeye
: pulling the swords...but in this situation,
: it made no sense...he still had his

: handle much more than "bullet

: And the fabulousness continues with my

: Last issue, Crossfire appeared to have

: but this issue we find out she is still
: alive, although in critical condition. Whew!
: According to McCann in the letter's page, he
: debated back and forth to kill her or keep
: her but ultimately decided to keep her
: because the plot would benefit more if she
: were still alive. Instead of giving Bobbi a
: third reason to fly off the rails, we will
: be treated to more of the rocky relationship
: between mother and daughter, as well as the
: mystery of who Bobbi's seemingly important

: Meanwhile, Bobbi still flies off the handle
: anyway, blaming Clint for putting her mother
: in the line of fire. Of course, she also
: blames Crossfire and Phantom Rider and
: immediately recruits Dominic Fortune in her
: search to nail the two scumbags. In the
: process, Clint discovers Bobbi's secret
: armory and learns she sells what she doesn't
: keep to friendly allies. When Clint makes
: noise about it, Bobbi basically tells Clint
: that if he doesn't like it he can %$%#&
: the hell off. The W.C.A. is her show. She's
: the boss.
: Before long, Mockingbird, Hawkeye, and
: Dominic Fortune track down Crossfire and the
: Phantom Rider and proceed to beat the living
: hell out of all his goons and crap. Hawkeye
: is taking it easy, but boy is Bobbi pissed
: off and boy does Dominic like it. And then
: comes Crossfire's new, upgraded Death
: T.H.R.O.W.s, these robot bastards he's using
: now instead of those other guys. However,
: things take a turn for the worse when
: Crossfire uses mind control to take control
: of Hawkeye and Dominic Fortune, forcing them
: both to shoot each other in the heart. BIFF!
: Fortune gets an arrow in the chest. BAM!
: Hawkeye gets plugged in the chest.
: Mockingbird, paralyzed by one of the Phantom
: Rider's bullets, has to watch it all in
: horror, just before Crossfire blows the
: place up (with he and the Phantom Rider
: walking away as everything goes ker-blewy!).
: And on an interesting note, just before the
: big throwdown, we learn that Crossfire has a
: benefactor, that who he is really working
: for is ten times meaner than he is.
: Hmmm....mystery mastermind time again! :D
: Love this title. Action packed. Lots of
: characterization. Great art. Very old
: school. Like reading an old WCA title.
: And McCann says in issue #6 that Mockingbird
: will be going to the Savage Land to take on
: some leftover damn dirty Skrulls. Hopefully
: Ka-Zar, her ex-boyfriend, will be around.
: Should be fun. After that, the crossover
: with the Black Widow!
