So to celebrate everyone's favorite 3 second clip from the Avengers Endgame trailer, I thought I would do a post about the origins of Hawkeye's Ronin identity.
Ronin is an alter ego that has actually been used by a bunch of different characters in the Marvel Universe, the first oh which being Maya Lopez, who was involved in an Avengers mission a few issues earlier. You'll see how that connects in part 2.
This story takes place after the House of M event, where Wanda Maximoff, the Scarlet Witch, altered reality, basically creating the Marvel equivalent of Flashpoint. One of the results of her reality bending was Clint being brought back from the dead, after he was killed by a Kree warship that randomly appeared above New York due to - oh well wouldn't you know it - more of Scarlet Witch's reality bending.
Clint wakes up in New York and makes his way to the Sanctum Sanctorum to meet with Doctor Strange, where he decides he's going to find Wanda and get some answers.
