If the internet doesn't stir into some fucking uproar over Mjolnirdick I'm going to be pissed.

I'm just want someone to photoshop a giant wang/strap-on right there, because that would be hilarious though probably transphobic or something.

This is why it's impossible to talk to you guys about comics. The bias is way too strong, and totally childish.

I mean, if you think it's some kind of amazing coincidence that the guys who made green arrow are now poached to do green arrow's marvel knockoff, you're an idiot.

Lemire started on GA after Fraction and Aja's Hawkeye got big. How is Hawkeye a GA knockoff?

Also Clint and Kate are better characters than Ollie. That's just a fact.

I'm not making any statements regarding the origins of either character. I'm saying that Fraction and Aja's Haweye comic came out and got super popular, so DC was like "hey we need some of that archer market" and got a good creative team on GA in response. Before Fraction's Hawkeye, GA was Nocenti dumpster trash that DC gave zero shits about. In this way, GA was a ripoff of Hawkeye.

If we WERE talking about character origins, nearly every Marvel character is a ripoff of some DC character because DC existed for decades before Marvel and pioneered all this shit.

But maybe Hawkeye was only given that book in response to the success of Arrow?

The show? It started in October 2012... The first issue of Hawkeye came out in August 2012.

Regardless, it's an idiotic argument anyways. Lemire is a great writer and Ramon Perez is a kick ass artist so the book is going to be in good hands. I don't think the tone of Fraction/Aja is going to carry over much if at all, but Fraction made me love those characters and I'm sure Lemire can do good things with them too. Kenzo's just being a butthurt fanboy.

Why does Clint even need to be in it? Where is my Kate Bishop solo book? Why Marvel hate women so much?

Kate solo book would be cool but she plays really really well off of Clint. Most of her best moments are in books where she's just in a few panels.

I haven't read the whole thing but she seems to be criminally underutilized in Gillen's YA, which sucks. Also Jim Cheung's Kate is way better than Jamie McKelvie's Kate.

Wait, are they really bringing back Civil War? Is it going to just be the same story? Should DC just redo the Sinestro Corps War?
All of my what right there.

I'd rather re-read Sinestro Corps War than Civil War, so yeah, DC should do that.

Not sure how it's going to be done as it was only teased, but yeah they are revisiting it in some way I guess.

That's not it at all remotely. I don't even give two shits about N52 Green Arrow; Marvel can have it if they want. I just think it's more than ironic and hilarious that they're yet again pilfering Green Arrow to make something out of nothing with Hawkeye.

I never read Civil War, but if it's anything like the shitty video game, it fucking sucks and they honestly should hit the redo button. Having an ideological split down the middle of the Marvel Universe and having heroes fight heroes in earnest sounds great. Unfortunately, using that premise as a distraction so that Great Cosmic Evil™ can attempt to threaten Earth but everyone bands together at the last second is fucking dumb. And then having Cap die at the end out of nowhere because... edgy! How about let your cool premise actually play out and have heroes killing heroes Marvel, instead of yet another dumb generic story with zero long term repercussions.
