Hawkeye Preemptively Kills the Crap out of Ultron (in Toy Form)



I cannot wait for the irate Twitterers who think that I and Diamond Select Toys have somehow spoiled something involving James Spader and Jeremy Renner.

But since “that sort of robot” already strains credulity when you really think about it, we’ll call it even.

Hawkeye is one of Diamond’s new Previews solicits for this week. He’s not quite my favorite, though, because they also have this…


It’s a bottle-opener. And since alcohol, like Venom, wants to eat my brain, I consider it a masterful mashup that should have been though of long ago.
