Clint Barton is saying goodbye to his former Avengers teammates, and hello to troubles all his own in the new comic series, Hawkeye: Freefall. But with the book’s biggest mystery now out in the open, it’s time for more of Clint’s friends to find out just why the archer is living a double life — starting with his old friend Black Widow.
The new series from Matthew Rosenberg and Otto Schmidt began with serious momentum and mystery, throwing Clint’s plan of tackling smaller, street-level crimes out the window with the arrival of a new mysterious Ronin spilling blood in New York City. It’s not just any case of mistaken identity that cane bring both Falcon and the Winter Soldier knocking on Clint’s door, let alone teaming up to fight Ronin as a trio. But after Hawkeye: Freefall #2 blew the lid off the mystery — revealing that it actually IS Clint masquerading as Ronin — readers were left with a lot of questions. So too was Natasha Romanoff, who comes to find out what Clint is up to in Marvel’s official preview of Freefall #3. And yes, her continued mission with Bucky (and not Clint) most definitely comes up.
It was the similarity between Clint Barton’s fighting style and that of the new, totally-not-Clint Ronin that gave his secret away. But it appears the digitally-minded young man who uncovered Clint’s secret is now working with him, as Hawkeye keeps up both sides of his alibi. But in a world of super spies like Black Widow, a masked Ronin moving like Hawkeye isn’t going to go unnoticed. What Nat chooses to do with her suspicions… is another matter entirely. But for now, feast your eyes on the official preview pages for Hawkeye: Freefall #3 below:
