Hawkeye Finds His Pants Friday!

Well, just as Dark Knight was snubbed for Best Picture, Comics Make No Sense was snubbed by the 2009 Bloggies! On behalf of both of us, I'd like to say "Bite me!" The fans know who the real rockstars are.

So, anyway...

It's only fitting that we begin a new era in American History by acknowledging the beginning of another era: The Era where Hawkeye Starts Wearing Pants Again.

Avengers v1 #109 brings us back to the original outfit:


Again, it's not the most iconic look I've ever seen, but at least it manages to incorporate... oh, I don't know.... pants.

But as awful as it was, it was always great for me to pick up an issue from the pantless Hawkeye era, because I knew I'd find something somewhere in those pages worth making a comment about. For that reason, I salute the pantless Hawkeye outfit, much like the Red Baron would salute downed enemy pilots as they fell:


Pantless Hawkeye. In triplicate. It gets no better. Can you believe I'm not getting nominated for any awards with this kind of material?



Hey, it's not like anyone forced you to wear the outfit, bub. Your original duds were sitting in your closet for dang near a year.

To tell the truth, this issue is particularly bad for plot alone, but this panel is the jewel in the crown:


Okay, let me get this straight: You didn't really love the Scarlet Witch. Well, good thing you didn't tell her you were in love with her and propose, eh? Wait... You did that very thing!

This, I suspect, is why Hawkeye can't "get it on," as he puts it. He does get bonus self-awareness points for acknowledging his main concern is "getting it on." I can't imagine why he doesn't ever have a relationship that works out for him.

Hail and farewell, Hawkeye's pantless costume. Let us bid you adieu with Fun with Out of Context Dialogue!(tm!)


Oh, Hawkeye. With pants or without, your horrible choice of words will bring me blog fodder for years to come. And for that, we all thank you.

See you Monday!

Hawkeye sure likes to feel the breeze between his knees. What with all that 'legs wide apart' posing and pantlessness...

Elie said...

I don't get Hawk's "Steve Reeves" reference. Reeves was a bodybuilder, right - what does that have to do with wearing a pantless uniform?

Adam Barnett said...

Elie, I think he's talking about the Hercules role Steve Reeves played and the costume Reeves wore.

At least when Oliver Queen is caught without pants, he usually HAS been "getting it on." ;-)

Jake said...

I can only assume being snubbed for the Bloggies has to be related to not finishing the U.S.1 reviews. Clearly this is a sign you should finish them! Immediately!

This was one of the first comic books I ever read!

You can imaging the traumatic effect that had on the rest of my comic-reading childhood.

SallyP said...

And this is why Oliver Queen beats Hawkeye. They're both loudmouthed jerks, but at least Ollie can get laid. WithOUT running around pantsless.

The one letter wonder said...

I don't know which is worse that he went pantless or that he also was appearently shaving his legs as well. I think that may be the core problem stopping him from getting laid. He keeps stealing his lady friends' razors.

You wuz robbed. If they let all of Clint Barton's 10,000 alter egos vote, you'd be a shoe-in...

Neat - the very next issue of Avengers, #110, was one of the first I read!

Adam, don't feel blue. We think you're the best!

What Jake said.

There is no room in the elite of the blog fleet for slackers.
