How Hawkeye Changes Kate Bishop’s Origin

Spoiler alert

To bring Kate Bishop to the MCU, the Hawkeye series on Disney+ altered the character’s original plot in the Marvel comics. Here, the heroine appears as yet another person affected by the Avengers.

This origin serves organically for introduction. Kate Bishop’s father is killed during the events of the 2012 Battle of New York, with the girl watching Hawkeye save her, which inspires her to become a hero.

In comics, the story is quite different. Derek, her father, doesn’t die and controls a company that has shady deals with villains like Madame Masque.

Estranged from her father, Kate Bishop is saved by the Avengers on a mission, the first time she has seen Hawkeye in action. As with the MCU, the comic book version soon becomes a big fan of the hero.

But Kate Bishop only decides to start training after witnessing a bank robbery and getting traumatized. In addition to being an apprentice of Hawkeye, she starts the Young Avengers, with her family’s money, alongside Cassie Lang, the daughter of Ant-Man.

In this beginning, the Young Avengers still don’t appear and Kate also doesn’t have the sister of the comics, Susan.

Of course about the young group of heroes, that could change in the future. The rest of the story may also reveal whether other origin points can still be used in the Disney+ series.
