Be it Osborn or a tyrannical Cyclops. Yes, people do change, but somehow I don't see Hawkeyes transformation as not being very convincing. Well, almost as unconvincing as Cyke turning into a paramilitary leader, terrorist and then a dictator killing Prof X.
    Haven't you heard? In order for a hero to be "KEWL" and popular said hero has to (a) become a killer like Wolverine and the Punisher and (b) be just like his movie version. I should also remind you that past established comic book continuity doesn't matter or count. Only the movie continuity counts and the comics should always follow the movies since the movies have gotten it right.

    Good. Goooooood. The Mighty Marvel Mind-Control subliminal messages in the comics and the movies are working...

    Me neither. Fool me once, shame on Bendis. Fool me 65 times, well, I think I've learned my lesson by now...

    (If you don't get that, go read a book!)
    Do you need to read that book if you can see Russia from your house?

    Same here. I'll personally add Mind the Gap #1 and Debris #1 to that list. It can be done, getting my full attention in the space of one issue, and I am really glad when it happens.

    It's easy to mock, but is Blade being entirely unreasonable when he suggests that Wolverine and the Punisher are little more than ill-disguised shills for the US armed forces?

    'I'm the best, at what I do.'

    'But what is it you do?'

    'I slice mothers up, real tasty.'

    'I see ...'

    No, I'm not "clearly" in the minority just because you tell me so. Marvel's official statements on what was intended does not change what was on the printed page.
