Weekend Wrap Up: Hawk and Hawkeye

Some weekends it is just hard to keep up with everything. Here are a couple of bits of news that came out over the weekend Movie related, worth knowing about.

Rumor has it that Hawkeye will suffer a family tragedy and switch ID’s to Ronin. Ronin first appears in New Avengers #11. However, the first Ronin was Maya Lopez. But, in true Marvel first appearance fashion, Ronin had a cover appearance on New Avengers #4. Clint Barton down’t become Ronin until New Avengers #27.


Speaking of Hawks, Titans cast it’s own Hawk, played by Alan Ritchson. The original Hawk and Dove team first appears in Showcase #75. Dawn Granger Dove first appears in Hawk and Dove #1 (1998).

In a totally unrelated story, Captain Phasma #1 has the first appearance of the Droid BB-9E, touted as BB-8’s evil twin.

    Thanks for this!

    So is it best to hold onto captain plasma until the next movie starts to launch properly?

    Ronin isn’t fully revealed to be Clint Barton until New Avengers 30, this is what CGC has labeled. New Avengers 27 is technically the 1st chronological appearance of Barton as Ronin, but I think #30 will be the more collected one because it’s when he is actually revealed as Barton/Ronin

    Also, i’d stay away from the New Avengers 4 variant unless it can be had for cheap, as we saw with Gwen Poole, the market pays a lot more for the actual 1st appearance than they do of a random cover variant.

      Absolutely. But was pointing out a bit of the absurdity of a Marvel first appearance. The cover shows Robin, then actually appears in the book and then later turns into the character everyone assumed it was.

      • Christopher B says:

        Oh wow so Ronin actually appears inside of the book? Yeah I will never understand how 1st appearances are defined then. If there was a set standard, then ok, but it seems the definition of cameo vs 1st appearance changes with almost every character.

  4. John Williams says:

    Apparently the Red Guardian was once Ronin. Any leads on when he first showed up as Ronin?
