Marvel Must Bring Back Hawkeye’s Ultimate Costume
Marvel has the perfect opportunity for Clint Barton to re-wear his best costume from Ultimate Marvel’s Hawkeye series, which will be released in December. The Ultimate Marvel universe serves as a blueprint for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Hawkeye’s film version inspired his Ultimate counterpart, an elite SHIELD and black ops operative. Clint’s second Ultimate costume, which he wore as Ronin before transforming back to Hawkeye, may have been from an era of the Marvel comics that have been heavily criticized. However, its modern style and appearance could help make the Avenger more prominent.
Bryan Hitch and Mark Millar created the Ultimate Clint Barton. In Ultimates #7, the black ops operative, known for his archery skills and precise aim, was made a public member of the Ultimates, the world’s version of the Avengers. Clint was a long-time SHIELD director Nick Fury’s collaborator. He helped the Ultimates fight against the Chitauri and detained illegal Metahumans. All the while, he managed to return home to his family and wife on time. Clint was abducted and his family killed by Liberators’ assassins. The Liberators are supervillains created by international governments to challenge the US military’s power and authority. Clint managed to escape and helped his teammates defeat their enemies. However, Clint’s execution of the traitorous Black Widow didn’t resolve his guilt, remorse, or loss.
Hawkeye was seen in a new costume for Ultimates 3. It included a full-bodysuit with the sleeves removed and a mask with goggles. There was also a bullseye target and a mask. He preferred guns and quick-draw crossbows. He was emotionally distraught after the death of his family. This led to a reckless, bold, and suicidal attitude, often seeing him clash with other Ultimates. Hawkeye was reunited with Fury after the events of Ultimatum and found himself in the new black ops team, the Avengers. They dealt with many superhuman threats before rejoining the Ultimates.
The Ultimate costume made the most sense when considering all the options for Hawkeye’s MCU debut. His original costume was too old and difficult to adapt to modern standards. Clint’s modern costume is primarily civilian wear, and he doesn’t have the signature look of his Avengers teammates. The outfit would give Clint a unique superhero look and blend well with the MCU’s current styles. Clint is now reunited with his family after the events of Avengers: Endgame. However, Clint is still haunted by the past five years of operating as Ronin. These actions are likely to return for another pound of flesh. This is why this costume was created: to accommodate Hawkeye’s temperamental and emotionally aggressive nature, and it fits perfectly.
This costume is from an era in Ultimate Marvel history that is highly disliked and best forgotten. However, it would be fascinating to see Hawkeye wear such an ensemble even if some details were changed or removed. This costume could remind Hawkeye’s past as a SHIELD black ops agent and his desire to stay in the shadows rather than the spotlight and attention that the Avengers receive. Marvel will likely give the Ultimate costume another chance with the Hawkeye series’ debut in November.
Marvel unveils a new Hawkeye trailer, which teases a horrible and action-packed Christmas for Jeremy Renner’s Marvel Cinematic Universe hero. Jonathan Igla created the Disney+ series. It takes place after Avengers: Endgame when Renner’s Clint Barton travels to New York City to celebrate Christmas with his family. Barton is forced to work with Hawkeye superfan Kate Bishop when Ronin’s enemies return.
Renner is the Hawkeye cast’s leader, alongside Hailee Steinfeld, Vera Farmiga and Fra Free as Kate Bishop, Tony Dalton as Zahn McClarnon and Brian d’Arcy James, and Alaqua Cox as Alaqua, Florence Pugh as Black Widow’s Yelena Belova, Linda Cardellini as Linda Cardellini. The series will establish Bishop’s future in Hawkeye and introduce Maya Lopez (Echo) to the franchise. It will also lead to a spinoff series that focuses on the deaf hero. Marvel has a surprise for Hawkeye’s debut.
