Hawkeye has some ill luck does he not? In the ‘Avengers’ movie, he is enslaved into Loki’s service as guard, enforcer and assassin. He then attacks his staunchest ally/future love interest Black Widow without volition. Luckily she breaks Loki’s hold over him by beating the mind control out of him. Meanwhile in the cartoon ‘The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes!’, Hawkeye is betrayed by Black Widow and falsely branded a double agent turncoat. He is locked up in the supervillain prison The Vault without trial. Of course he did manage to escape, join the Avengers and declare Black Widow his arch enemy. Poor guy.

“Run away dude...run fast, run far.”
Cleared out a tape from 1999. It opened with a ‘Xena Warrior Princess’ ep ‘Fallen Angel’ in which Xena and Gabrielle are in the afterlife after being executed by the Romans. The Christian afterlife BTW, Hades is nowhere to be seen. Meanwhile the annoying Eli, the annoying Amazon (Jennifer Sky) and Joxer try to bring the duo back to life. Angels in idiot fluffy wings flap around, Callsito is in hell yet gets redeemed, there is bad blue screen, overacting and it is all truly stupid.
Then came an ‘Earth: Final Conflict’ ep ‘The Cloister’ in which new age Taelon worshippers in silly hats bore. Marina Sirtis guest stars. Taelons wave their hands around. The Resistance annoy and shout. This was awful.
Then came an ‘X Files’ ep ‘The Sixth Extinction: Amor Fati’ in which Smoking Man reveals he is Mulder’s daddy, Mulder hallucinates, Fowley is a terrible person and dies off screen. I don’t care.
“He’s immune to the coming viral apocalypse.”
“He is what he sought.”
Finally there was another ‘Xena Warrior Princess’ ep ‘Chakram’ in which Gabby and Xena are back from the dead. Once the show turned its back on camp and Eli showed up, it all went to crap. Xena has convenient amnesia, a new chakram debuts, Gabrielle gets a new outfit and some sais. There are fight scenes and lots of yap. But nothing of note takes place.
