#13 Hawkeye / Mockingbird vs Green Arrow / Black Canary

After defeating Green Arrow in the first matchup, Hawkeye now turns to face the deadly Black Canary who has come to aid her husband. Seeing this Hawkeye calls in Mockingbird to reinforce the Marvel team. The match of the deadly couples is now underway.

Hawkeye and MockingbirdName: Clint Barton and Barbara Morse
Affiliated To: The Avengers, S.H.I.E.L.D.
Background: Orphaned at a young early age, Hawkeye was raised in a circus where he learnt archery. He later fell out and joined Black Widow who seduced him to help her take down Iron Man. Mockingbird a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent was assigned to investigate CTE where she clashed with Hawkeye. The two joined forces and set out against CTE and its underlings. They fell in love and after the successful conclusion to the CTE case, they got married too. They joined the Avengers vowing to rid the world of all evil.

Green Arrow and Black CanaryName: Oliver Queen and Dinah Lance
Affiliated To : The Justice League
Background: Oliver Queen is a wealthy, playboy, philanthropist much like Batman and Iron-Man. He became the archer when he was left stranded on an island after his ship sank and had nothing to defend himself except a bow. He practiced his archery on animals and later took out a gang of smugglers in the island which made him believe that he could put his skills to better use by saving the world from bad villains. Though Black Canary couldn't stand Green Arrow, she eventually became romantically involved with her Justice League colleague despite their age difference.


Hawkeye / Mockingbird vs Green Arrow / Black Canary

Skill :

We have already read about the various types of arrows in Hawkeye's arsenal - Boomerang, Flare, Bomb  etc. He uses his laser-pointed bow to rain misery with these arrows, but other than that he is a master acrobat owing to his circus training and training with Captain America. He has also known to be holding his own with expert proficiency in Katana. Mockingbird's preferred weapon of choice is a pair of batons or a single bo-staff. She graduated at the top of her class in S.H.I.E.L.D. and knows judo, karate and other martial arts.

Green Arrow too packs a punch with a wider variety of arrows - Boxing Glove, Laritat, Atomic Warhead etc. He is also quite skilled in melee combat as he is proficient in Judo, Karate and Kickboxing. Black Canary complements Green Arrow's ranged marksmanship with her up-close melee fighting. She is hailed to be the best martial fighter in DC with Oracle suggesting that she can outfight even Batman. She also possesses uncanny reflexes thanks to her training with DC supremo Wildcat which has enabled her to many a times catch arrows in flight.

While both teams look extremely strong, Hawkeye and Mockingbird's melee proficiency looks far more than their opponents and hence they manage to win this round.

Hawkeye and Mockingbird

Hawkeye / Mockingbird  - 80/100
Green Arrow / Black Canary - 65/100

Intellect :

Both Hawkeye and Green Arrow are not exactly the most capable leaders, though each has been seen to lead groups of superheroes into missions. Hawkeye is the emotional one among the two and his inability to control his temper and be easily seduced by power, often turns up as a bane for the group. Their lady counterparts are the shrewd ones, while Mockingbird generally flies solo in her missions, she has led some S.H.E.I.L.D. groups during world invasions. Black Canary on the other hand is considered a strong thinker and strategic leader. Though these skills are in no way at par with Batman or the Martian, she was voted as the chairwoman of the JLA and was said to have done a splendid job.

Well, it needs no braniac to figure out who has the edge in this round - Green Arrow and Black Canary

Hawkeye / Mackingbird - 65/100
Green Arrow / Black Canary - 80/100

Armour :

Aboard his sky cycle, Hawkeye has a scaly purple uniform which enhances his pierce armour to deflect other arrows and small projectiles. However, it mostly only adds to the show. The Mockingbird's outfit is nothing but a sophisticated S.H.E.I.L.D. uniform made to fit very very tightly to her body.

While fishnet stockings are only good for trapping men it is still better than her hubby Green Arrow's green cape which can be used more for stealth ( if by a huge miracle they fight in a forest) rather than anything else. Dinah however is an expert motorcycle rider and there have been often stints in the comics where she is shown to maneuver an extremely fast bike while Green Arrow shoots from the pillion. Black Canary's iconic bike was a gift from Superman which she has always cherished.

Hawkeye and Mockingbird clinch this round.

Hawkeye / Mockingbird - 75/100
Green Arrow / Black Canary - 70/100

Special :

While the guys don't possess any superpowers, their counterparts pack quite a punch with special abilities.

To cope with an injury, Mockingbird was given a mixture of the Super Soldier Serum and the Infinity Formula which arrests Nick Fury's ageing. While the antidote has kicked in and repaired her injury, there doesn't seem to be any new change to Mockingbird. Only time will tell.

Black Canary

Unlike her mother, Black Canary can totally control her Canary Cry. This high pitch sonic scream can be quite deadly and is known to shatter objects and incapacitate people. She can also release an ultrasonic frequency scream which is above the audible spectrum and makes any person hearing it unconscious. She can convert these screams into waves to read people's mind.

While Mockingbird's experiment was a failure till now, Black Canary's Canary Cry has won many matches for the Justice League. The edge goes to Green Arrow and Black Canary.

Hawkeye / Mockingbird - 10/100
Green Arrow / Black Canary - 85/100


Hawkeye / Mockingbird - 230/400
Green Arrow / Black Canary - 300/400

Green Arrow and Black Canary

While Hawkeye and Green Arrow were a good match for each other, Black Canary's Canary Cry totally owned Mockingbird. She literally screamed her opponents into submission.
