Hawkeye: Oh, uh, ‘Tasha, I don’t think you’ve met the Mockingbird. She and I… that is… you see…
Mockingbird: “Married” is the word he’s searching for.
Black Widow: Really? Congratulations. It’s always a pleasure to meet a woman as brave as you must be.
Mockingbird: The pleasure’s mine, Natasha.
Hawkeye: Whew! They’re hitting it off.

First meeting. Hooray for avoiding the inexplicably hateful ex-girlfriend cliche. But Natasha, those are some suspicious earrings. Avengers #239, by Roger Stern, Al Milgrom, and Joe Sinnott.


Cover of Hawkeye: Blindspot #1 by Mike Perkins.

Not sure why Mockingbird’s on here (and Crossfire and Black Widow for that matter) for as far as I know from what I’ve read, she isn’t appearing in this mini-series (and hasn’t as of the second issue). Still an awesome cover though!

Bobbi is appearing in issue #3 according to Jim McCann, fyi.

I don’t want to think about Natasha’s pose, here.
