Quote:How much of that, especially the Wasp stuff, was bad writing?
Quote:Ah the classic conundrum...is it a bad character behaving badly or is it a good character written badly?
It's always the writer. The characters have no free will. What the characters have is continuity.
I actually see Clint as a little desperate when it comes to romantic love. It really isn't so much of a stretch for him to chase almost any woman. The bro code would normally have caused him to hesitate but apparently he despises Hank. I guess everyone does. Thank you so much, Jim Shooter. But whether Jan would be receptive to Clint is an open question. Also I didn't like the nearly instantaneous leap into bed. There would have been an awkward tentativeness combined with the deep mutual respect of comrades in arms. They would have taken it slow, I think. In the beginning they would have altogether denied their feelings for one another. What I would have wanted is an actual story about the two of them as an evolving couple. Instead what we got is a sudden scene done strictly for shock value. Welcome to 21st century Marvel.
