an’ not a single person remembered.
Guess that’s fittin’, huh?
"You really think I forgot your birthday?"
When Clint Barton is sent to retrieve a package in the Middle East, MI-6 decides to act as agent James Bond is on location as well. They’ve been tracking this Barton asset for far too long to let him slip through their fingers. But once Barton is in custody, there will be consequences. For both SHIELD and MI-6 who are going to have to clean up the mess, but for Bond and Barton too, who will discover that their lineage may not be too far off…
For all he loses in Ultimates, the fact that Clint Barton even manages to come back as he does is nothing short of a miracle. The Hawk we see come Ultimates 3 is a shell who refuses to be called his own name, is reckless to the point of being genuinely suicidal, and uses pistols even though the sounds remind him of the night his wife and children were slaughtered before him.
For a while, he was a very broken man.
And I have always had a lot of feelings for this incarnation of him.
