Spoiler alert: Daredevil reaches the ledge.

This would-be classic from 1973 shows us the Hawkeye we all knew and loved back when super hero tales came in monthly 20-cent installments. Long before his Avengers movie reinvention as a super assassin for SHIELD, Hawkeye was mostly a mouthy hothead with a recurve bow and a purple costume who wouldn’t hesitate to get into a fight with another superhero over a girl. In this case, fighting Daredevil over the Black Widow. He was great.

Since we’re from the future, we know, of course, that Scarlett Johansson will be revealed as the Black Widow, so fighting for her favor makes perfect logical sense.

Or something.
