Mjolnir - Worth It? - Grant McLaughlin

Page 6

1 – Natasha, Clint, and Bruce are walking quickly down a hallway in Avengers' Mansion. Natasha and Clint are supporting Bruce between them, as he is still pretty wiped from the fight on the previous page.

BLACK WIDOW: What were those?

BRUCE BANNER: I'm still not sure, but I can tell you they can put up one hell of a fight.

HAWKEYE: Well, if we're worried about it, why don't we get everybody assembled?

2 – Quick scene change. Nick Fury, Captain America, Iron Man, and Thor are all lounging by a pool in their bathing suits. Like in the opening Nick Fury page, though they're wearing bathing suits, each character is still wearing the upper part of their regular costumes.  Because of course they are.

NICK FURY: And you're sure that the rest of the team doesn't need you?

CAPTAIN AMERICA: They'll be just fine. What's the worst that could happen?

3 – Back to our trio. Bruce looks rather sheepish at answering the question, changing the topic as quickly as he can. The group stands before a door clearly marked “Armoury”.

BRUCE BANNER: Uh, they're busy. Official Avengers... stuff.

BRUCE BANNER (2): It'll be up to us to fight these things. Fortunately, we still have a trick or two up our sleeves.

4 – Shot from the interior of the Armoury. Natasha, Clint, and Bruce stand in the doorway towards the background of the panel. The focus here is that Mjolnir, which sits on a pedestal in the centre of the panel. Natasha is a little surprised. Clint is nonplussed, too brash to be offput by this revelation. Bruce's sheepishness is gone, now firmly back in control (although he's still drained, leaning on Natasha for support).

BLACK WIDOW: Mjolnir?! But how? Wouldn't Thor --

BRUCE BANNER (interrupting): It's very simple, really ---

HAWKEYE (also interrupting): Shotgun!

5 – Clint walking towards the hammer. He is confident and cocky. Natasha has her head in her hand, unbelieving that someone could be so oblivious. Bruce is confused.

BRUCE BANNER: “Shotgun?”

HAWKEYE: With this bad boy in hand, we'll be cleaning those clocks' clocks in no time!

BLACK WIDOW: We all know it's not that easy, Clint.

6 – Clint tries to lift the hammer. He doesn't have much success, straining with all his might to move it at all. It doesn't move.

HAWKEYE: It is when you have Hawkeye on board! --

HAWKEYE (2): Uhngg!

BRUCE BANNER: Clint, I'm sorry to say I didn't have you in mind to wield Mjolnir...

7 – Clint holds the same position, but he's no longer straining to lift the hammer. He is distracted by Bruce's explanation, eyes wide in surprise. Natasha looks up, equally, if not more, surprised.

BRUCE BANNER: I had Natasha.


8 – Close-up on Natasha. Stunned, she can't believe what she's hearing.

BLACK WIDOW (quietly): Me?
