Yeah, go ahead and tell me what "murder" Hulk caused in the movies. Hulk only targeted people --- almost invariably soldiers, mercenaries, and cops, i.e., trained professionals --- who tried to kill him; he didn't run around killing civilians. And *they* were the instigators of the violence, not Hulk. In Hawkeye's case, *he* was the bad guy who led unprovoked attacks on the Helicarrier and on a dinner party at a German museum. Huge difference behind the methodology in that, versus being a misunderstood monster on the lam from the army.

They brought Black Widow in and she was an out and out villain in the past after all.
If Hawkeye can get mind-controlled once to turn on his comrades, he can get mind-controlled again. That makes him a definite security risk. Nick Fury sure as hell isn't the kind of director who'd okay that. Hell, he kept Tony Stark out of the Avenger Initiative just for his attitude, for "not playing well with others" think he's going to let a guy who just murdered a bunch of SHIELD agents back into the organization, mind**** or no???

Also, innocent by reason of insanity is a real thing and those who prove their insanity at the time of their crime are not held responsible for the crime. However, they would most likely be held in a psychiatric institution (almost a prison) until they are deemed sane and no longer a threat to society, however long that takes. Neither Hawkeye or Selvig would see actual jail time for their crimes.

I don't want people to hate me for the law stuff but I wanted to clarify the insanity stuff. Sorry.
Haven't seen it yet, but everything I've read says that Selvig *is* in a psychiatric institution in TDW. Yes? No?


...They move like slick cotton on oil.
