Hawk Eye Volume 4 is out now, with some subtle nods to characters from the broader comic book lore. Specifically, there’s a focus on Wendy Conrad, one of the LARPers with a completely different comic character. In fact, she’s been a shield to Hawkeye in many situations – so will that happen in the Disney Plus show? We get to know this character, also known as Bombshell in the comics, exploring her role in Hawkeye.
Who is Wendy Conrad in Hawkeye episode 4?
Wendy Conrad, played by Adetinpo Thomas, is one of the LARPers that Hawkeye and Kate Bishop go to get their donkey arrows. While her role is minor, she is a much more important character in the comics.
That’s right, Wendy Conrad is better known as Bombshell, a hitman for hire who, in a late 1980s comic strip, was hired to take down Hawkeye. Her first attempt involved Bombshell disguised as a nun to kidnap him. When that failed, Crossfire tasked her with breaking Hawkeye’s arm, again failing.
However, it seems that Wendy Conrad’s appearance in Hawkeye episode 4 is going down a different path. In this part, she gives Clint a bag full of trick arrows to use against Echo. This bag even has ‘Bombshell’ embroidered on it, as a nice sign of her comic book origins. Since she’s allied with Clint and Kate, it doesn’t seem like she’ll be a villain on the show. Similarly, it seems the show has swapped her martial arts prowess for a more laid-back personality as a role-player. As such, she doesn’t quite carry the same threat.
Instead, the main assassins pursuing Hawkeye are Yelena, from Black Widow, and Echo. Whether Wendy Conrad will become Clint’s ally to stop these threats, we still don’t know. BILLION
