Why didn't Clint get mad at Pink when he prevented him from beating up Mike?


When Pink prevented Clint from beating up Mike why didn't Clint ever get mad at Pink for stopping him? I thought it was cool seeing Pink preventing Clint from harming Mike yet remained respectful and cool towards him.

While Clint was a hothead and in a fighting mood, he didn't have any beefs with, or want any trouble with Pink, who was popular and had many allies.

Clint knew his place in the pecking order. Clint can pick on geeks when no one was watching, but Clint knew Pink was the king of the school and he wasn't going to do anything to mess with either him or his cohort.

Because Clint was just a bully. He would only pick on someone weaker, who he knew wouldn't be able to defend himself and no one would help or care. But once someone who can defend themselves steps in, like Pink or Wooderson, he backs off.
