Within the third episode of Hawkeye, Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld) does one thing very surprising: she requests a USB dongle within 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 by the Tracksuit Mafia amidst some hectic New York Metropolis visitors. Whereas Clint drives, Kate goes by his assortment of trick arrows. Most are the form of comedian guide goofiness you’d anticipate: 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 tip. “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. Within the unique Avengers film, Hawkeye had an arrow that would hack a really particular and proprietary port on a flying Helicarrier. However the brand new episode of the present makes it clear that there are way more mundane arrows as properly. Sadly, given the stunning quantity of characters who use a USB C-equipped Pixel telephone in Hawkeye, the superhero goes to must replace his arsenal quickly.
