This is a handsome poster ad for the original Hawkeye limited. Back then it seemed almost every other Marvel character was getting a limited, but Hawkeye was well deserving of one, and adding Mockingbird to the mix was inspired. The ending with them getting married was a real surprise and added real heft to one of Marvel's most interesting heroes.
His outfit never looked quite like this one in the comics, but I love this particular design by Mark Gruenwald and it looks very slick under Brett Breeding's inks.
By now it's probably not a spoiler that Hawkeye shows up briefly in the Thor movie, but I was totally unaware of it, and frankly was very pleased. We got very little of him, and I'm eager to see more next summer.
