All But Confirmed Hawkeye Is Already Back

As many readers know, one of the Avenger's killed by Scarlet Witch when she went bonkers in the Avengers Disassembled arc was Hawkeye (Clint Barton). Soon after, writer Brian Michael Bendis told us we'd see him soon. Then, in She-Hulk, some weirdness happens to Shulkie and she gets a message to a version of Clint from the past (this may not have influence on where I am going with this). In Daredevil, Matt Murdock is sent to prison for crimes performed as Daredevil, his alter ego. Soon after a man wearing the Daredevil costume shows up fighting crime in Hell's Kitchen. Here on Mister Fanboy, we guessed that the man in the Dardevil suit was none other than Clint Barton. In yesterday's "New Joe Fridays" column on Newsarama, Marvel Editor in Chief Joe Quesada does some serious hinting when a reader question is posed:

Newsarama: “Doombug” - Joe with the new 'Hawkeye' being confirmed, can you tell us where Clint Barton will be during all of this? Maybe a teaser to one of the Civil War books?

JoeQ: You should be seeing more of Clint by years’ end, you never know where he’s been but I bet he’s been having a devil of a time.

Devil of a time, huh? Seems pretty obvious to us, but we've been had before. By the way, in case you missed it, the point of this whole post was to be self-congratulatory because sometimes you need to toot your own horn and basically tell the world that you are better than the rest of them.
