Less then Katrina but more then "911". Or,, about what it would cost to put a toilet seat in a Stealth aircraft.

Eleventy billion?

By the way, if Iron Man couldn't cut through the dragon things armor, how the hell are they going to remove the carcases from the city? Can you imagine creatures that size just rotting away in a city of millions of people?

I'm assuming it's plated, so the cleanup crew would probably just work at getting under the plates and removing them. Then, those plates would probably end up being reconstructed as a monument, for future study and observation.

That, or get a giant crane and dump it in the ocean.

Is it in Drew's contract with Paramount that there has to be at least three Avengers threads a day?

$160 billion? But would it be covered by insurance?

Is that before or after the mafia and city fathers get their cut?

Would the new building code require buildings to be built to withstand the acts of superheros?

Movies been out worldwide for a week or longer, if you haven't seen it yet and care about not having details spoiled then you'd be an idiot reading discussions about it.

They actually get a small cut of Avengers cash (this is the last Marvel Studios movie they get a cut. It's Disney's money from here on out.)

Whatever the cost, the least amount of damage was done by the guy with the arrows. Seriously, at what point does Hawkeye not seem like a lame-ass hero? You know who's deadlier than the best archer in the world? Anybody who's mediocre to proficient with a gun. Sorry, I know I'm ranting like an asshole here, Hawkeye has never made sense as a comic book hero.

Given the time frame of the WTC rebuilding, the next 5 avenger movies should still have the damage from the first movie.

Your getting me wrong. It's really not a sharp knees comment. In my mind, if there's more then an inch between boobs it's a classic case of Arnold boobs. Too many Butterflies. Girls,,, don't do butterflies. Work the abs and thighs,,, but don't do butterflies. Your boobs are supposed to almost touch. Just an observation.

Hawkeye is proficient with guns. With the possible exception of Bullseye, he's the best marksman in the world. Anything is a weapon in his hands. He uses the bow because he can.

Not to mention that with things like the Hulk in your world, it's a lot easier to make and use universal arrow heads and stck shafts than produce special guns for each seperate threat.

It's about precision and silence, first of all. In the movie, he showed that he can drop a target from a great distance without making noise. That's valuable if you're a spy.

However, it's also about versatility and subtlety. Opponents underestimate Hawkeye. They're using ray guns and super-armor, and here he is with a bow and trick arrows... They lower their guard. They pay attention to the green guy tearing things apart, and that's when Hawkeye fires a wide spread of arrows and takes out a half-dozen guys with a single shot, or destroys a large target with a trick arrow.

In the comics he practices obsessively so that he NEVER misses. Ever. He does this because he's painfully aware that he's "just a guy with a bow" and that he runs with a crowd that is superhuman. He always strives to be worthy of his teammates.

In the comics, he is also a world-class marksman with any distance weapon, as well as being a superior swordsman, and an incredibly skilled martial artist and acrobat.

What makes him special when compared to Iron Man or Thor is that he never misses. Iron Man fires bolts, blasts, and beams, but he misses his target from time to time. Thor hurls his hammer, but even Mjolnir misses the target on occasion. Hawkeye is the guy on the team that will hit the important target. He will hit the tiny, vulnerable spot on the giant death robot. He will strike the button half a mile away that stops the explosive device from destroying the city. He will hit the 1" target that is the demigod's achilles heel. He will make it count every single time.

When you need someone who will hit the target without question, you don't ask Thor, Hulk, or Thor. You ask Hawkeye. Believe it or not, that sort of situation comes up a lot in superhero battles.

Oh, and in the comics Hawkeye is so damned good that he can shoot an arrow into the gun barrel before the gunman gets a shot off.

You WOULD think he'd upgrade to an autocrossbow of some sort for the missile-ish type shots.

They gave him a boost with a bit of team leader stuff though.

And he knocked loki off, which was valuable.

Google perfect boobs. Image. You will see that the most spectacular breasts on the planet have no rib cage in between. That is all. There are fine boobs alone divided by a certain "border". But I prefer the pairs.
