RandoMonday: Avengers #17

Here’s a comic chosen at random from my collection.

Avengers (2010) #17 by Brian Michael Bendis (writer), John Romita Jr. (penciler), Klaus Janson (inker), Paul Mounts (colorist), VC’s Cory Petit (letters), Lauren Sankovitch (assoc. editor), Tom Brevoort (editor), and Alan Davis, Mark Farmer, & Javier Rodriguez (cover)

This comic pissed me off so much. I bought it solely for the promise of the relationship between Spider-Woman and Hawkeye, as intimated by the cover art. Here is what the solicitation text said back in June 2011:

FEAR ITSELF has brought damage and destruction the likes of which the Marvel Universe has never seen but it has also brought two avengers together in the most surprising way. Be here for the start of an all-new chapter in the lives of two of the most controversial Avengers!

You know what? Marvel LIED to us! There is nothing–NOTHING–between Jessica and Clint in this issue. God I was (still am) so mad.

Speaking of Hawkeye, there’s a scene where he shoots an arrow into the neck of Sin, and when Ms. Marvel questions him about it, all Clint can stammer is “I–“, and there is nothing said about this apparent act of attempted murder.
