Talksplode highlights:

  • Coming out of the heroic age, Hawkeye & Mockingbird #1 will debut in June with an extra sized issue, following a short story in Enter the Heroic Age in May.
  • Clint and Bobbie will continue their adventures with their group, the World Counter-Terrorism Agency, or the W.C.A., which sounds a lot like an acronym for West Coast Avengers, complete with a new high tech headquarters.
