* BrokenBase: Mockingbird #8 reveals that [[spoiler: Bobbi wasn't drugged and raped by the Phantom Rider, instead she cheated on Clint with him and just let Clint believe she had been raped, because it was easier for Clint to believe that than to believe that he had been cheated on.]] Rape aside, fans are divided on whether [[spoiler:changing Bobbi from being a strong survivor to a cheating wife]] is a good or bad thing.

** She was also this in ''ComicBook/SecretAvengers''; despite having almost no advertisements and being one of the only three characters in the story who weren't in the films yet despite the vary blatant pandering to film fans (the other two being Taskmaster and Daisy Johnson, both of whom were no slouches in fan acceptance either), she easily attracted the most fan attention due to being a fun character who got a good few moments to shine in the earlier issues. She arguably became the BreakoutCharacter due to the amount of focus she got later, including an arc focusing on her, but this lead to her being PutOnTheBus when a creative team change happened.

* AuthorsSavingThrow: Jim McCann and Brian Michael Bendis essentially reinvented Bobbi when she reappeared following ''ComicBook/SecretInvasion''. She had not been well-served by her previous arcs in the 1980s, but McCann in particular reinforced her espionage training and ruthlessness.

* DieForOurShip: Because ''Film/TheAvengers'' has been so successful, and as such been seen by many who never read the comics, Bobbi has recently been getting slated by fans of [[PortmanteauCoupleName BlackHawk]] for the slight of being Clint's wife in the comics. From being villainized to becoming an AlphaBitch in HighSchoolAU fics, its now almost impossible to find a fanfic that includes Bobbi that doesn't involve her being attacked and bashed, sadly. Likely this will be migted somewhat by her joining ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD''

WTHCostumingDepartment: Her AllNewAllDifferentMarvel redesign hasn't been well received, and many are hoping it gets dropped before her ongoing starts. It seems to be an attempt to make her look more like a bird, but instead it looks like an awkward attempt at redesigning a [[GenderBender Rule 63]] Nightwing. Strangely, Bobbi's look in ''Agents of SHIELD'' has been reasonably well received (if with a few critics), so you'd think they'd model the design after ''that''.

This has faded a bit as the design became more streamlined prior to her ongoing starting.

** Saying that, some Clint/Bobbi fans have not taken kindly to [[SpiderWoman Jessica moving in on him.]] Its generally not so bad, since a lot of them liked her before Bendis began pairing the two, they just want her out of the way. Doesn't help that Jess is replacing her on the Secret Avengers, and its been confirmed that there's no plans with her right now, meaning she's stuck in limbo before someone brings her back.

*** Interestingly though, Hawkeye's wife has not received much hatred, or at least not as vocal of hatred as those against Lance Hunter.

*** Interestingly though, Hawkeye's wife has not received much hatred, or at least not as vocal of hatred as those against Lance Hunter. Hunter, at least not from Hawkingbird shippers (less can be said for other Clint shippers on that front). The fact people seem to expect her and the kids to die in [[Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar Civil War]] probably explains that.



* WhatMeasureIsANonBadass: Borders on out-of-universe OvershadowedByAwesome; due to not being one of the most well-known Avengers, and not appearing in the MCU until the second season of ''Agents of SHIELD'', Bobbi is a very obscure character, and its not helped by the fact that Marvel have rarely given her much of a solo push independent of Hawkeye. As such, ws well-received as she has been, there's been a VocalMinority of MCU fans who've quickly dismissed her on the grounds she's not Black Widow, and couldn't possibly be as good as Natasha for the simple fact she wasn't introduced with her.[[/folder]]

*** Connected to the above, there's a similar issue her fanbase has brought up, concerning the lack of any solo outings for her. Despite over forty years of publication, positive reception to all of her appearances, and now her appearing regularly on TV, Bobbi has ''never'' had an ongoing, or even a miniseries, just dedicated to her.

This is at least migated in 2015 where, following her appearances in ''Agents of SHIELD'', she's now getting several action figures, a one-shot special, and now an ongoing following the success of said one-shot.

* FanPreferredCouple: While Clint is probably her most popular shipping partner thanks to once being an OfficialCouple with him, she's got quite a few people who instead ship her with SpiderMan, ComicBook/BlackWidow, and BuckyBarnes.
