Add to that that he hits Fury solid center mass where there’s body armor and not, you know, in his head.
Barton misses on purpose. Agreed.
I’ve always thought this, and… tbh I get kinda emotional at the idea that Clint’s fighting Loki off in his head. [/fangirl moment]
They confirmed this in a deleted scene. Loki is asking Clint about Fury, Clint talks about how he respects Fury, and Loki asks “is that why you didn’t kill him?”. Clint was fighting Loki as hard as he could.
In the last twelve months, he has received nine special commendations, achieved highest arrest record for any officer in the Met and sustained three injuries in the line of duty, most recently in December when wounded by a man dressed as Father Christmas.
