Last time, The Hood, unable to fence his stolen diamonds, instead offered a deal to sell them back to the crime boss he stole them from in the first place, while the FBI agents chasing him received an anonymous tip on the exchange.

Trigger warning for misogyny and some blood.

So the feds offer to release John if he'll testify that The Hood was a woman. Naturally, he's happy to.

John's happy reunion with Parker and Sara is cut short by the news that the cop The Hood shot died. Parker takes this poorly.


We get the Golem begging someone he calls "Master" for forgiveness, and later see him crying over a picture of his family. His daughter has green skin and blue hair, so he wasn't kidding about her being a mutant. We also see the demony-looking guy Parker shot come back to life and shout "Parkerrrr..." like he needs pictures of Spider-Man. Neither of these characters will ever appear again.

However, the cop's wife, Dr. Bondi, is currently in the Anger stage of grieving:

Jeff Parker would actually bring White Fang back in Dark Reign: The Hood, a mere seven years after this.

White Fang? Does she experience the call of the wild? Is her partner the Sea Wolf? Does she need to learn how to build a fire? (damn ran out Jack London stories)

And she monologues to herself...

Given that her monologue there is actually a quote from White Fang, yes, I'd say Jack London references are appropriate.

I mean, I think the Whizzer already got his powers from a Mongoose Blood Infusion, so maybe he could have a teen sidekick called Rikki?

I await with bated breath the bitter individualist supervillain Martin Eden.

I'm holding out for mad scientist supervillain John Galt.

Nooope. After this one story, the Hood was never seen again. End of story.

Oh, wait, no, he turned into one of those recurring punchlines and was thoroughly Bendised.

The worse thing that can happen to a character is for Bendis to like them

Is there any indication that Bendis hates Hawkeye, instead of simply not knowing how to write him?

Not like he's Tigra.

Fraction's work with Clint completely eclipsed Bendis' New Avengers character assassination though, so hopefully someone will come along and make us forget Civil War II in turn. Preferably with a new well-written series showcasing Clint, but I can probably be negotiated down to a frying pan.
