IMAGE EXPO: New Projects Revealed From Rucka, Simone, Aaron and More
All month-long we’ll be featuring top five lists about either the Avengers or the X-Men. Here is an archive of all the past top five lists!
In this installment, we take a look at the top five nicknames that Clint Barton gave his Avenger teammates!
5. Witchie/Witchy and Vizh (tie)
A rare tie on a Top Five list, as I typically believe ties are cop-outs, but here it is A. basically a toss-up and B. they actually both appear in this panel in Avengers #109 so it seemed too perfect to pass up…
Used for Goliath (and I guess he might have used it for himself when HE became Goliath)…
While not their first appearances, I liked that these two nicknames showed up in back-to-back panels in Avengers #66…
The first major recurring nickname that Hawkeye came up with (although oddly enough, there was another nickname that Hawkeye used frequently in the early days, as well. I think I’ll do a “Top Five Lesser Known Hawkeye Nicknames for His Avenger Teammates” list where I’ll reveal what it was) appeared often. Here it is from Avengers #21…
This one was so notable that when Cap left the Avengers, he actually MISSED being called Winghead!!
That’s the list! Agree? Disagree? Let me know!
