#he missed on purpose and you will never take that headcanon away from me #he’s strong as hell #stronger than anyone knows #and he can fight people controlling him #maybe he couldn’t take away the mind control but he could shift his arm just slightly to the side and miss #he’s THE GREATEST MARKSMAN IN THE WORLD AND MARIA AND FURY WERE NOT FAR FROM HIM #HE WOULDN’T HAVE MISSED IF HE DIDN’T WANT TO
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]
