    And even more annoying is that a well-written Scarlet Witch/Hawkeye relationship, given their history, could have been something substantial. Instead, we got an issue most of us found offensive that pretty much eliminates the possibility of there ever being a real Scarlet Witch/Hawkeye storyline. Even with the retcon, Hawkeye isn't in the clear.

I agree. The retcon was that Hawkeye believed it was Wanda when in fact it was a Doombot. That still means Hawkeye intentionally tried to bed a dear old friend who seemed in the midst of a complete mental breakdown and didn't even remember who she was. Maybe he thought she wouldn't even remember. This is evil at its core.

I've heard the counter-argument that Clint was suffering from PTSD from his death/resurrection at Wanda's hand, that Wanda seduced him, and that Hawkeye was actually the victim. I ain't buying it. ESPECIALLY since we now know that magic wasn't at play during their encounter, since the Wanda-bot wouldn't have had those powers. And I definitely can't see Doom using his magic to make Clint get intimate with one of his robots, for heavens sake.

Back when Hawkeye led the WACKOs, he was my second-favorite character (after Spidey). Now I can't even look at him. The damage Bendis did to these characters just goes on and on.
