From what I understand, Iron Firt received some kind of retcon (He's had quite a few hasn't he?) and something happened with him and the Phoenix Force? Can anyone explain this please? Why the heck are the Avengers and the X-Men fighting anyway?
As too Hawkeye, from what I saw of the cover, he looked like he did from the Avengers movie. Are they playing him like that? Or is this still the same Hawkeye that we know and love? Does he have a rogues gallery? Aren't Crossfire and him arch-enemies? Can anyone give me some issues where they fought? Thanks.
Hawkeye is still the comic character with all of his history intact. He has never been a SHIELD agent. He simply now has a costume similar to the movie.
He and Crossfire are arch enemies. You can check out the original Hawkeye miniseries for their first clash. Also, the recent Hawkeye and Mockingbird series features Crossfire.
