Welcome to the second issue of The Avengers: Red Wings Initiative. Last week, we introduced Gustav Nyquist as Hawkeye/Clint Barton. Who do you get this week? Well, we were in Thor last week, and these go in chronological order surprisingly, so your best guess is that we’re still taking place during Thor.
I remember when the teaser trailer for Thor came out. Not knowing anything about the character whatsoever (except for that little girl in Adventures in Babysitting really loved him), all I really noticed was that Chris Hemsworth looked like Johan Franzen from certain angles. So I stuck with that.
Bonus points if you know the movie the “What’s the secret to your success?”/”Prayer” comment came from. (Answer: It’s Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.)
Remember last issue when I said Jimmy Howard likes to look different in every single panel of this comic? I wasn’t lying. And it doesn’t get any better. I will say…at least I get his nose right!
Next week, we leave the realm of Thor behind and jump into scenes from The Avengers. Get stoked. It’s going to be great.
If you have any ideas of things you might want to see in the upcoming issues, leave them in the comments below! I’m always open to suggestions. Also, I’m in need of a player to be Gambit for a “bonus” comic, so let me know if you have ideas for that casting and I’ll tell you if they’ve already been cast as an Avenger (Gambit is temporarily Xavier Ouellet, being French and all).
Next Installment: Wednesday, June 4!
