Episode 27: Hawkeye

Welcome to Journey Into Misery, where I explain complicated comics characters, continuity and concepts to the patient and perpetually perplexed Helena Hart.

This week we’re tackling everyone’s favourite blonde haired, blue-eyed archer.  No, not that one, it’s Hawkeye, or rather, Hawkeyes as we talk about the multiple characters to rock purple better than anyone else in comics.

Also, listen right through to the end for a brand new segment!

You can listen to JOURNEY INTO MISERY a number of ways, including Libsyn, iTunes or Stitcher. Alternatively, you could just click play on that little button below.

We have a Patreon to cover the hosting costs and hopefully be able to put out more shows that last longer. If you enjoy what we’re doing and want more, please take a look at the rewards we’ve got and consider signing up.

Bonus episodes

Every month on the Patreon, we do a few bonus episodes that supporters get advance access to. We wanted to make them available to everyone though, and some people have told us they want to support the show in a less linear fashion, so they are available for pay-what-you-want on Gumroad.

It’s important to us that they are available to everyone, and please feel free to take every one of the bonus episodes for free. However, if you do want to contribute to the show in any way, the option is there.

Image Gallery

As I go through the podcast, I bring up images to show Helena what a character looks like. You can follow along with this image gallery.

  1. The now-defunct and much lamented weekly review podcast Awesomed By Comics used the New 52 music as the intro for their “Crap of the Week” segment. In fact, I think the New 52 commercial was featured in that segment the week it came out.

    I’ve always thought that the Fraction’s Hawkey could have been adapted into a Rockford Files-esque show, with every episode beginning with Steve Rogers leaving an exasperated message on Clint’s answering machine. Also, Clint is the last person in the world with an answering machine.

  2. You said Hawkeye became Goliath for a time. Does that mean that, between that era and his death in Disassembled, Clint Barton had growing and shrinking powers? If there was no in-continuity removal of those powers, were they just the Moppy of superpowers?
