Ok enough with everyone being mad about her being named Hawkeye. She was given the name by Cap in Young Avengers #12. She (Kate Bishop) is the Young Avengers equivient to Iron Man, in that she provides a HQ and money for the team to function. She has some training she has a rich daddy who paid for her to have archery and fencing lessons. So just lay off the girl she is being trained by the Initiative now, so relax I'm sure she will live up to Clint's memory.

> And isn't she a bit curvy for a teenage girl?

She is a growing girl so I'm sure it's fine, besides I would figure that everyone would worry about Scott Lang's daughter being to curvy since she is only 14.

I'm only pointing out that it makes no sense that a teenage girl to be a super hero. If I take a fencing lesson does that mean I can be a supe hero? If this were true everyone in America would sign up. Will she live up to Clint's memory? Why should she? Anyone else on the planet has the same chances. I get her Iron Man type role, but she is clearly an active member of the team. And seriously, I make one comment about this and you tell me to "lay off the girl" as if you two are related. It's just an observation about the comic.

I didn't realize this. They all seemed about the same age to me. Selective Pym particles I guess.
