Hawkeye is the new and last Disney + series in the Marvel Cinematic Universe for 2021. After the great reception of WandaVision, Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki and What If… ?, it is time to end this first wave of productions television in the form of miniseries within Phase 4 of the UCM; this time focused on the character of Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner) and the one who is destined to become the Eye of the Hawk of the immediate future, Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld). But who is Kate Bishop exactly?

Meeting Kate Bishop, a modern Marvel icon in comics

The creation of Kate Bishop dates back to 2005, in the middle of the Young Avengers era. Marvel, in the early 2000s, looked for a way to reboot some of its most representative characters (for example, the Ultimate Universe) and in parallel created new superheroes and superheroines. That’s where the roles of Allan Heinberg and Jim Cheung come into play, who gave color and shape to Katherine “Kate” Bishop.

We are facing the first woman to become Hawkeye after Clint Barton, from The Avengers, and Wyatt McDonald, from the Supreme Squad. Among her powers and abilities we find fencing, archery, boxing and Jiu-jitsu. In the series we will learn about her aspirations, tastes and interests, as well as her maturity process as a future Hawkeye in the UCM.
