Sticks and Stones....

Comic book matchups that had you scratching your head--
but still made you curious about how the fight would turn out.

Welcome to another installment in a series of posts we could only call:

Hawkeye vs. Brainchild. It's a battle that won't be showing up anytime soon in the annals of comics history, so why is it being featured here?

Because if I simply wrote about what happened in this fight, you'd respond with: "You've got to be kidding me."

Followed by, "You've GOT to be kidding me."

No, the way the fight plays out is something you must see for yourself.

We start out by finding that Brainchild has Hawkeye on the ropes. Go on, make all the jokes you want to about how anyone with the word "brain" in their name isn't going to have any trouble getting the best of Hawkeye. All I can say is, don't count Hawkeye out just yet.

We can probably guess what Hawkeye is thinking right now: "Man, I need to get this guy to Vegas." Seriously, though, it looks like this Avenger is pretty helpless now. Brainchild certainly seems to think so. But if you thought Brainchild's method of defeating Hawkeye was a bit of a stretch, you haven't seen anything yet.

What's going on here? Hawkeye's going to beat this guy by insulting him? What's he got up his sleeve? Well, first he'd have to have sleeves. But he does have a plan:

Yes, that's right: if a villain ever menaces you, you can defeat them by making them have a tantrum. And instead of acting on that anger and lunging at you, they'll simply pass out.

If tantrums actually worked like that, parents everywhere would likely be high-fiving each other.

I had forgotten that Hawkeye went through a period where he didn't wear pants.

Nice find, its too bad Spidey didn't try this angle when he was confined by Brainchild in that Marvel Feature story he could have saved himself the agony of being turned into a giant spider critter. ^^
