Marvel Team-Up #22
Issue(s): Marvel Team-Up #22
It's not that exciting, but then i'm not a big Hawkeye fan.
The most interesting development is that after an interesting development for Quasimodo in his last fight with the Beast, he's now decided to just be a straight up evil robot. You can't fight your original programming, it seems.
When Hawkeye is telling Spidey about the Quasimodo threat, there's an extended flashback full of Hawkeye awesomely fighting his way through robots and stealthily infiltrating Quasimodo's base and stuff...
...and it would have been funny if the whole flashback turned out to be a huge exaggeration, with the reality being that the guy got captured and barely escaped with his life.
It would have been fair, too, because later in the story Spidey builds an anti-robot detection device that turns out to be a complete dud.
Quality Rating: C-
Chronological Placement Considerations: Spidey mentions Liz Allan's return, placing this after ASM #132-133.
Continuity Insert? N
My Reprint: N/A
Hawk-eye having a secret identity has always been a bit odd considering he has no close family we know of. So why he wouldnt just TAKE off his mask as part of his disguise baffles the imagination.
I kinda like Quazimodo. He's one of those villains who seems to fight everyone.

Hawkeye has also never had a career minus his bow and quiver of arrows. By contrast, his DC counterpart, Oliver Queen/Green Arrow, had turns in public relations and as a newspaper columnist in the Bronze Age after losing the family fortune.

I should correct myself somewhat and acknowledge Hawkeye's brief stint as Goliath. The point is he's never held a job like Clint Barton: Travel Agent or somesuch.

I'm not a big Hawkeye fan (either), so I could't give a comprehensive list, but I know he's at least worked as a security guard at Cross Enterprises.

@Andrew- I recall that, but even that was a job as Hawkeye, not so much Clint Barton. Also, I'm no super-fan of the character like Kurt Busiek, but I'm not a Hawkeye hater, either.
