    Hawkeye is traditionally one of my least favorite Marvel characters. I didn't like his abilities or his personality, and as someone who dislikes Roy Thomas stories, I dislike much of his history.

I agree with all of that but the Roy Thomas bit. Roy Thomas is awesome.

    I do like his classic costume when Byrne or Perez draws it. I think Barry Windsor-Smith would draw it terrifically.

    Recently, when he took over the Ronin identity during Dark Reign, I did kind of like that and wished he'd kept it. I also liked the Matt Fraction/David Aja series.

    So, for me, that is about 2 bright spots in 50 or so years of Hawkeye stories.

    I think that the USAgent beating the crap out of him in Byrne's WCA might be my favorite Hawkeye moment.
