Hawkeye – Looks Like Team Spirit – MK Stangeland Jr.

(If none of this makes any sense to you, think “Iowa State”.)

(4 Panels)

Panel 1: A group of MARLOCKS (no reference, but they’re a bunch of aliens with some kind of Technicolor skin, and these ones are built athletically) stand triumphant over their fallen sports foes.


NURTZ (2): Once again, we reign supreme! Now let us destroy this region of the planet and move on to the next pathetic sector!

Panel 2: NURTZ and the other MARLOCKS look off-panel.

CLINT BARTON: Not yet, you don’t.

NURTZ: Who dares?!

Panel 3: Large panel, featuring a heroic lineup of HAWKEYE (CLINT BARTON), HAWKEYE (KATE BISHOP), HAWKPOOL (DEADPOOL in a Hawkeye-esque costume), MAN-HAWK (A lawyer friendly version of HAWKMAN – made up specifically for this page - with a Hawkeye-esque costume), IRON HAWK (IRON MAN with HAWKEYE-themed armor), SPIDER-HAWK (Hawkeye-themed SPIDER-MAN), and HAWK (version of FALCON).


NURTZ: Who are you supposed to be?

KATE BISHOP: Us? We’re Hawkeyes.

SPIDER-HAWK: (Deemphasized/downplayed) This is so stupid.

HAWKPOOL: (Downplayed/Deemphasized) Quiet, Hawk-bug.

Panel 4: NURTZ looks off to the side to a referee who, aside from being sort of terrified by what all has been happening, has his shoulders in a massive shrug and his arms spread out – he clearly doesn’t have the slightest clue on how to make any kind of ruling on this most recent turn of events.



  1. This sounds a lot like Space Jam.

    1. Yeah, it was probably inspired by Space Jam. Subliminally, at the very least.

      Mostly, though, I just decided to take the easy near-cop-out route this week and just pump out a page that goes for a simple, quick, cheesy pun.
