Marvel Comics Legacy and Avengers #690 Spoilers for No Surrender 16 follows.
Avengers #690 is packed with a lot before next week’s Avengers #1 fresh start:
- Confusion over Hawkeye’s costume.
- Intertwined fates of Voyager and the imprisoned Challenger.
- Catharsis for the Immortal Hulk and Hawkeye over Civil War II.
- Revelations about Wonder Man, Hawkeye, Vision and Quicksilver.
- New beginnings for the Black Order, Lethal Legion and the original Grandmaster.
Concerning Hawkeye’s costume confusion to the end of No Surrender, we need to set up some context.
You may remember that Avengers #682 for No Surrender Part 8 had a cover that was originally solicited like this…
…but was changed to this before publication because…
…a classic costumed Hawkeye returned in the interior pages.
Well this is the cover to Avengers #690 No Surrender Part 16.
That cover did not change and has the more modern, Avengers movie franchise look, on the cover for Hawkeye. Also, in the issue Hawkeye has that modern costume back…
…while the new Avengers statue has him in his classic threads.
That said, I certainly hope classic looking Hawkeye is part of the fresh start initiative despite him not being prominent in the Avengers #1 fresh start kick off.
Avengers #1 hits stands on May 2, 2018, only 7 days away, next week!
