Marvel is ramping up several new series to spin out of Civil War II, and one of the most interesting is certainly Occupy Avengers. So we caught up with writer David Walker to break down what fans can expect.
Clint Barton is set to be a key player in the new series (spinning out of his controversial role in Civil War II), and Walker told us Hawkeye is essentially a superhero fed up with the superhero world. So he starts up his own team of Avengers — but this isn’t the gang you call when Galactus is threatening the world. Instead, Hawkeye’s new team is a working-class take on the Avengers, where they’ll tackle street-level problems for regular people in the Marvel Universe. Walker likened it somewhat to the A-Team, which just sounds awesome.
Not surprisingly, Hawkeye will be dealing with some existential issues due to Civil War II, and setting out to fix the world one small problem at a time seems like a really interesting story to tell through the lens of the comic universe. We can't wait to see who rounds out the roster.
Along with Occupy, Walker also talked about his critically acclaimed run on Nighthawk, which was recently canceled due to sluggish sales (sigh). Canned or not, it’s definitely a series you should check out.
