Marvel is all about legacy characters nowadays. That’s not always handled well, except for Kate Bishop, the second Hawkeye. She’s awesome and she finally got some love with her own series. Sadly, before that, it was not perfect for her.
Who’s Kate Bishop, the Superior Hawkeye?
Kate is heir to the Bishop fortune, being the daughter of publishing magnate Derek Bishop. Sometime after her mother died, Kate was attacked in Central Park. After that, she began to train hard and started to school herself in the arts of archery and other types of combat. She was determined to help others.
When Kate met the Young Avengers during her older sister’s wedding – when gunmen took the entire church hostage – she decided with Cassie Lang to join the team and that’s where her new career started.
