Death Throws (Captain America #317)
When mercenaries bound together by their – we kid you not – ability to throw stuff really well snatch the villain Crossfire from police custody, Hawkeye and Captain America ditch a party to confront the evil throwers head-on. The two arrived at the agreed-upon abandoned railroad terminal and, before they stepped into the fray, Cap handed Clint his shield. “For all we know,” he told his partner, “there will be a hundred guns shooing at you the moment you step in. Your bow and arrows won’t help one bit.” Clint didn’t take that as a jab, but as a great honor; after all, few people have actually held Steve Rogers’ shield. Barton tossed his bow to Steve, and the two made quick work of Oddball, Bombshell and the rest while using each other’s weapons.
This teamwork was uncharacteristic of the two at the time, as Hawkeye had been Cap’s most vocal opposition during their previous time on the Avengers. That’s something we’ve yet to see on film; Renner and Chris Evans hardly shared the screen at all in 2012′s Avengers. That tension, and then the teamwork demonstrated in this issue, would be great to see.
