Wastelanders: Hawkeye # 1 sends readers back to Old Man Hawkeye, and while still trying to do good, the hero just defied a huge villain by mistake.
In a world ruled by villains, Hawkeye always tries to be a hero, but he just accidentally challenged a massive threat: the Juggernaut.
Wastelanders: Hawkeye # 1 returns readers to Clint Barton’s life on Earth-807128, first explored in the iconic “Old Man Logan” story arc of Wolverine and revisited in Wasteland: Wolverine and other titles. Although Earth’s Mightiest Heroes were wiped out decades ago, Hawkeye still tries to be an Avenger. the Old man Hawkeye limited series served as the prequel series where Clint seeks revenge on the villains for killing the Avengers. In the next issue, however, Clint will take on the Juggernaut, who currently has a common problem with aging: arthritis.
On this Earth, the wastelands of what was once the United States have been carved into territories ruled by different villains and / or heroes turned villains. While Bullseye was a Marshal and Red Skull became the President, Juggernaut is revealed to be in charge of the raiders based in Goblin State Park, likely named after Spider-Man villain Green Goblin (or Hobgoblin). . After being challenged, Juggernaut mutters that killing Hawkeye will be “murder” in the giant’s lap, and even struggles to throw a truck at the hero as the bubbles illustrate him short of breath.
At the time of this fight, Hawkeye is blind and most likely realizes that this is the Juggernaut after the villain announces his name in the third person. The show specifies that it takes place 48 years after the fall of the heroes, two years before the events of the old man logan and two years after the epilogue of Old man Hawkeye # 12. The problem saw Clint beg an older Matthew Murdock, aka Daredevil, to train him after losing his eyesight to the mutant Avalanche, who used his powers to accelerate Clint’s glaucoma.
An artistic preview of the upcoming issue reveals that readers will witness Hawkeye’s training under Daredevil, who is now named after his mentor, Stick. This training is what allowed the archer to continue fighting by focusing on sound to locate targets and even drive the Spider-Buggy (with Wolverine’s navigation aid). The preview and the solicitation of Wastelanders: Hawkeye can be found below.
