    I was a bit concerned by the fact that the adventure of Hawkeye & his merry band of villains was brought to a close at the end of last issue, and that Fabian Nicieza packed up the show with two issues remaining. Now this issue is pretty much the aftermath of the adventure, and it's not exactly the most thrilling of reads as the villain of the piece are the Elite Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and they prove to be such an ineffectual group that the issue lacked any real sense of danger. Now the idea that Hawkeye's allied himself with a collection of baddies who still seem rather uncommitted to turning over a new leaf still remains an engaging idea, and I'm curious to see who has decided that Hawkeye's group are the answer to a threat that looks to be endangering the entire world. However, this issue does lack any real moments of excitement, as the characters don't really do anything beyond engage in some harmless fighting where no one is ever placed in any immediate danger.
