I remember that there were a few times during the Bendis era where Hawkeye seemed a little bit- I guess nonchalant about killing or using lethal force. During the Secret Invasion (Although those were Skrulls.), and didn't he also try to kill Norman Osborn during Dark Reign? Those are the only two that come to mind, were there more? Was this out of character for Clint? I remember that Clint killed Egghead, but that was by accident (More or less.). Maybe Clint dying took a toll on him. But was this strange for Clint?

I just assume the Hawkeye we've seen since Thunderbolts volume 1 ended has been a Skrull.

Well, the gun that Reed built in Secret Invasion #5 caused all Skrulls in a certain radius to transform back to their default shapes. It revealed Skrull-Mockingbird (on Clint's arm), Skrull-Jessica Jones, Srull-Carol, Skrull-Sue, Skrull-Emma, and Skrull-Thor. Clint remained human.

Maybe he was the Skrull smart enough to also pack an image inducer?

Yeah well Hawkeye saw Mockingbird in hell but the one who died was a Skrull. The shape shifting bomb that stole the Skrull powers back in the 80's and was only cured by Sy'bl's touch never affected Lyja while she was Alicia Masters. Contemplator was retconned into being a Skrull back in Englehart's Slver Surfer run well after the fact in Gruenwald's Quasar even though much of the Contemplator's plan in Silver Surfer relied on the fact that Elders of the Universe have a deal with Death that makes them immortal.

Writers write what they want.

That's cuz Bendis craps all over the established elements of classic characters as he's incapable of writing real heroes, just sullen self centered people. Oh well, write what you know, I guess.
