Manager Jared's Weekly Matchup Poll #5

Let the arrows fly! And the votes!

Clint Barton (Hawkeye) was an orphan, and ran away from the orphanage as a pre-teen to join the circus as a carnival performer, where he was trained in the use of the bow and arrow. Eventually, he got really freakin' good!

Oliver Queen (Green Arrow) was a millionaire who was pushed off his yacht one day by someone and he ended up on a deserted island. He built a bow-and-arrow from some old generator parts and learned to hunt. Eventually, he too got really freakin' good!


Their powers? They shoot arrows really freakin' good! They both have martial arts training and trick arrows. They are both skilled acrobats.

VOTE WHO WOULD WIN A FIGHT, HAWKEYE OR GREEN ARROW?

Hawkeye had a "Scarlett Witch" trick arrow!

Followed by a "Mephistarro"!

No more Green Arrow and a Brand New Day!

I think both characters are just about the same. I voted for Green Arrow because I am a DC guy.

Green Arrow. No criminal rep haha. Has an anti-cat arrow and a nuclear warhead arrow. THAT's variety. XD

I'm going with Green Arrow. While Clint used with talents with a bow to entertain at a circus, Ollie developed his skills to survive. You take that, Ollie's fierce will to beat overwhelming odds in many of the fights he's in and you got a winner. Plus, Ollie has access to a Green Lantern power ring and has proven himself capable of wielding it.

And he's not afraid to do what needs to be done to win, even if that means shooting your best friend in the chest.

These guys are so evenly matched it's tough to chose. I gotta go with the DC guy tho. Plus, hearing "Hawkeye" just makes me think of that guy from MASH.

Also, Green Arrow always seemed like a modern reincarnation of Robin Hood, which has GOT to make him the best archer ever.

Going along with DC here, just because.

I know very little about these characters, so going by the descriptions I went with Hawkeye because when it comes down to it I'm going to give the advantage to the runaway carnie over the rich guy who once fell off a boat.

good point savage mouse!

I voted for Green Arrow because he has an Arrowcar, an Arrowplane, an Arrowcave and an Arrowsignal.

And I just wanted to point out that both characters have much more background stories than "runaway carny" and "boat-faller-offer"...

(I wonder if the goofily-named Clint Barton knew of the Flying Graysons?)

"Arrowcave"? Really? Wow. I want to make so many dirty jokes about that but I suppose this should stay a family-friendly website, huh? ;D

So does Josh have to vote for Hawkeye as like a tribute to the family or something? I mean, if he chose Green Arrow that would be like turning his back to his heritage... CAN I GET A BOOM!?

Oh great. I can't wait to see what happens when Warpath/Thunderbird gets set against Apache Chief...

For every "BOOM" there will be a

SKA-DOOSH!

At least the Native Americans HAVE some heroes... How come the only ethnically-themed German characters are bad guy Nazis like THE RED SKULL?

HANH?

I voted Green Arrow because his name is green arrow...I think that "rich guy" identity was quickly lost soon after his life became dependent on how well he shot the bow and arrow...his life and identity is now THE ARROW!

BOOM and SKA-DOOSH!

I voted for Green Arrow because he has an awesome goatee. Does Hawkeye even shave? I bet if he tried to grow a moustache, it'd come in all wispy and he'd look like a 15-year-old D&D player.

Clint Barton pounds ineffectually on Steve's chest, sobbing incoherently.

Hawkeye has the Avengers Quinjet and the Infinite Avengers Mansion at his disposal right now! Both beat out the silver age arrow-car and arrow-cave!

Hey Joe, wasn't this weeks Mighty Avengers RAD?!
