Jen takes aim at Hawkeye in MTV interview

MTV Geek talked to Jen recently about her upcoming Avengers: Solo series with artist Roger Robinson.

Geek: Clearly, Hawkeye is the star here… What draws you to him, as a character?

JVM: I love his combination of rakish, brash bravado and straightforward honesty. His skill set is so much fun, and his sense of adventure makes him a delight to write. He’s also kind of a novelty for me because so many of the costumed characters I’ve written are marked by some real distinction between who they are in and out of costume, so to speak.

To me, Clint and Hawkeye are pretty much the same guy — it’s not as if the mask lets him say things he wouldn’t otherwise or he’s got a ‘day job’ that’s in conflict with his role as a hero– when Clint suits up, he’s putting on his work clothes. It’s kind of cool to work with someone for whom that part isn’t a huge source of tension.

The five-issue Avengers: Solo debuts in October!
