Everyone has heard about the infamous story when Hank Pym slapped Janet Van Dyne. But few care to read it to learn how full of great character moments it is. One of them is a lovely sequence with Hawkeye and She-Hulk.

For context, Hank Pym is being put on trial for several crimes. Egghead, the mastermind behind his insanity, sends his Masters of Evil to 'rescue' him in order to make it look like he's a villain. The Avengers are obviously there to fight them:

Oh no! is this the end of She-Hulk?

Not if Hawkeye can help it.

Time for some nice Hawk-therapy:

Ha ha, Clint, you're such a bastard! Who needs John Constantine so long as we have you?

Even better is Hank Pym taking down the Masters of Evil single-handedly in the same issue, but that sequence is too long to post here.

(7 pages from Avengers #228, 3 from #229)

And this, boys 'n' girls 'n' anything-in-betweens, is why I shipped She-Hawk back in the day when I was a wee young adolescent just learning about shipping.

You and me both. Stern wrote a great vitriolic relationship between them.

Ahhh. Back in the days when character writing didn't involve four pages of back-story every single issue, and emotional trauma didn't involve psychosis, parental disembowelment, or Japanese twins singing a creepy song.

This was my first Avengers arc. I think I was about 10 at the time. Such nostalgia! They don't make them like this anymore.

Clint's true power is to be superheroically infuriating! But I guess it's fine as long as it's this funny.

I read this, and I wonder why Joss Whedon decided to make Hawkeye as bland as toast.

Wait... BAD guys attack the Avengers? Was that a thing? Well, I am sure it is somehow their fault...and and... the teammates actually HELP one another? This concept is SO strange to me...
