In the third episode of Hawkeye, Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld) does one thing very surprising: she requests a USB dongle in the midst of a battle.
The spotlight of the episode is a scene the place Kate and her reluctant mentor, Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner), are preventing their means via the Tracksuit Mafia amidst some hectic New York City site visitors. While Clint drives, Kate goes via his assortment of trick arrows. Most are the sort of comedian guide goofiness you’d count on: one arrow creates a effervescent purple foam; one other turns into destructively large. Later, although, Clint palms Kate one thing a lot much less helpful in a struggle: an arrow with a USB-A port on the top. “God, I hope he’s got a dongle to make this useful,” Kate quips afterward. (It seems to not be very helpful.)
This isn’t the primary time we’ve seen a trick arrow designed to interface with computer systems. In the unique Avengers film, Hawkeye had an arrow that might hack a very particular and proprietary port on a flying Helicarrier. But the brand new episode of the present makes it clear that there are way more mundane arrows as properly. Unfortunately, given the stunning quantity of characters who use a USB C-equipped Pixel cellphone in Hawkeye, the superhero is going to must replace his arsenal quickly.
