Hey guys and welcome to a new column called “Objection!” (Yes, it’s named after Phoenix Wright’s catchphrase.) If you’ve been keeping up with the site, I hinted at this column in a post at the beginning of the month. These posts will pit two writers (and possibly guest writers) against one another in a friendly debate over a specific topic. Enjoy!
Judge: Welcome to the first “Objection!” I’m with Silverwolf and we’ll be debating who’s the better marksmen: Hawkeye or Green Arrow. Of course I’m on the Hawkeye bandwagon.
Silverwolf: And I’ll be defending Green Arrow.
Judge: Cool deal. Let’s begin. I think the first thing that comes to mind when I think of Hawkeye is that he’s a master of not only the bow and arrow, but various different forms of combat. He even had a cameo as Ronin. Green Arrow ain’t got nothing on that.
Silverwolf: Well, that’s where you’re wrong! Towards the end of Judd Winick’s run on GA, the Emerald Archer went to an island to train because his shooting skills couldn’t cut it alone. He actually mastered swordsmanship well enough to take on Deathstroke himself. He even learned how to make traps, fight hand to hand, and even some cooking techniques. He’s quite a multi-talented guy.
