Marvel’s Avengers adds classic Hawkeye skin

Marvel’s Avengers often digs into the Marvel Cinematic Universe for skins, but it also mines comic book history for its suite of costumes. Crystal Dynamics reached back pretty far for one of its newest pieces of gear, giving Hawkeye a late 1970s outfit.

Hawkeye’s classic skin calls back to the 1978 “Avengers #172” comic, which gives the sharpshooter a set of purple-rich threads. This suit just hit the market in its latest update and is 900 Credits which is about $9.
