Hawkeye became the bloodthirsty vigilante Ronin in the Avengers endgame, but Phase 4 will have him as a mentor to the next generation of MCU heroes.
Despite Clint Barton’s stunt as the bloodiest vigilante Ronin in Avengers: Endgame, he returns as a mentor figure to Kate Bishop in the upcoming Marvel Phase 4 Disney + series Hawkeye. Jeremy Renner’s Clint Barton was a hero long before Iron Man, the Hulk, Thor, and Captain America officially became Avengers. Clint saved Natasha Romanoff’s life in Budapest before recruiting her and nearly neutralizing Thor (or nearly killing him, according to What if …? Episode 3) when the Asgardian god of Odin was banished to earth. Even though Hawkeye’s abilities are pedestrian compared to the other Avengers, he still managed to fight alongside the most powerful creatures in the universe several times and lived to tell the story.
If the Avengers could not prevent Thanos from decimating the universe, Hawkeye was one of the heroes who took the worst blow. He retired to help Steve Rogers Captain America: Civil War and received house arrest as a result. He then took this as an opportunity to enjoy his long-awaited retirement with his family, but all his loved ones were crushed around him after Thanos’ snap. Clint was taken over with a desire for revenge and traveled to Japan to become Ronin, a bloodthirsty assassin who took the law into his own hands. Shortly enough, he returns to help the Avengers defeat the Thanos, but not without first of offer Natasha Romanoff to achieve it.
Clint Barton deserves to leave the superhero affairs in the past and live a peaceful life, but it is necessary to remember that Natasha Romanoff died before his eyes to save the universe, and he does not leave this memory or its meaning so simply disappeared. Hawkeye would not let her victims be wasted at a time when Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, and Black Widow are not there to help, much less when a new generation of heroes and villains fill the vacuum of the most powerful hero in Earth. Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania could be the start of the Young Avengers, and Clint could play a crucial role in their training during Phase 4 Hawkeye is not yet known, but he will definitely contribute Training by Kate Bishop, which takes over as the new Hawkeye in the comics and in the upcoming Disney + series.
In the comics, Hawkeye’s protégé Kate Bishop pursued her position in the Young Avengers. Like Clint Barton, she got her skills not from a mutant gene or a freak accident, but through pure skill and disciplined training. The first full length Hawkeye The trailer confirmed that the Disney + series will follow the source material very closely, with Clint being forced to teach Kate not only because of her persistence, but also because he feels responsible as an established hero. Even though SHIELD disappeared, it was Nick Fury who recruited Clint Barton and protected his family while he worked with the organization. Clint’s last job at MCU could have been paid back seeking redemption for his time as Ronin.
The Hawkeye The trailer also connects Kate Bishop with Ronin, as it seems as if she is not exactly inspired by Archer Avenger, but instead his murderous alter ego. Clint first learns about Kate Bishop knowing when a Ronin Wannabe fights criminals on the street, and only when he is confronted by the mysterious figure does he realize that she is the one under the mask. So, not only will Clint Barton take over the role of mentor to help his admirers fight the hardships of crime, but he will also try to do his best because his name and heirs are on the line. If he allows Ronin Copycats to rub free, it’s likely that his name will disappear soon after his final retirement. The Falk and the Winter Soldier presents a similar topic with John Walker alias US Agent illuminate the worst aspects of Captain America iconography and go with the flag-smashers of a group of freedom fighters into a terrorist organization.
The launch of the multiverse and the arrival of bad guys like Kang the Conqueror (who united Kate Bishop and Young Avengers in the comics) require the support of more experienced heroes. Dr. Strange will be busy mentoring Peter Parker Spider-Man: No Way Home and possibly Wanda Maximoff Doctor Strange in the multiverse of madness, Thor will fight far away against Gorr the God butcher Thor: Love and Thunder, Hulk will help Jennifer Walters Si-Hulk, War Machine will deal with the conflict of Armor warriors, and Nick Fury will be crucial for Secret Invasion. The least Clint Barton could do is stay active and support him new heroes of MCU Phase 4.
Hawkeye suffered more than enough in the MCU. However, his help in Phase 4 would be practical to keep the world safe. Avengers: Endgame might have broken him, but what he does with that pain will determine whether he is defined by the time he spent as a hero or the crimes he committed as Ronin. And with Kate Bishop, she brings Clint’s best and worst qualities to the fore Hawkeye, it’s the perfect time for him to decide what makes him one of the most important Avengers.
