AVENGERS #189

Michelinie was still missing, so Steven Grant stopped by to write a few issues.  This issue, a fan favorite, was a solo Hawkeye story versus Deathbird.

The opening sequence has Thor leaving the mansion as Falcon arrives, and shows the effects of not having air traffic control.

Hawkeye gets a job working for Cross Technology.  Why?

Because he is replaced by Falcon and put on stand-by, as a governmental affirmative action effort.

He gets it by breaking in to the manager’s office, and inspiring so much confidence…

…by shooting his hand with an arrow, that the guy feels he has to hire him.

If an Avenger showed up at your office and offered to be your new security chief, why would you need any convincing?

And Deathbird is trying to steal some tech.

So he stops her.

Now, Deathbird has gone one-on-one against Ms. Marvel.  How the fuck can she not kill Hawkeye?
