One of the most of exciting thing in the Avengers: Endgame trailer had to be the return of Hawkeye. But it’s not just the return of Hawkeye, it’s Hawkeye as Ronin!

In the comics writer/HACK Brian Michael Bendis killed off Hawkeye and then reintroduced him in another identity of Ronin. In typical Bendis fashion, he gives no explanation as to why Hawkeye is Ronin, and Bendis completely ignores 43 years of character development. But I digress.

At this time we are not sure why Hawkeye becomes Ronin in the film, but I’m sure the Russo Brothers do a better job explaining it than Bendis ever could.

This has to be the best of the figures in this set. I really like the look here. Even though the name Ronin is for a masterless samurai, the figure looks like a modern-day ninja. Plus it’s a great adaptation of the comic book costume. It really looks great on the figure. While the costume does cover the ab-crunch,  it doesn’t hinder the articulation. What I really love is the removable hood. Very cool.

Ronin comes with a long sword and short sword. Both fit nicely into the sheath on his back. The swords fit easily into either hand. He also comes with an additional left hand that looks like it tossing out thrown stars. A really cool effect.

Ronin comes with the left arm of Thanos which has the Infinity Gauntlet on it.  It looks sweet.

Like I said before, this is my favorite of wave.

Many thanks to Hasbro for sending Ronin to us to review!

You can find Ronin at retail stores or you can buy directly from Hasbro Pulse.
