Clinton Barton came into the game in the second episode. He’s always one of my favorites to introduce and demonstrates that, sometimes, I stick to comic lore a bit. Like always, There isn’t going to be anything posted below that you can’t find on

Clint Barton

“I mean, I can’t miss… I’m on a team with super-humans. And one god, in case you’ve forgotten. And if I miss, it means I’m just another dude with a bow. It means I’ve been fooling myself this whole time. And that’s why I never miss.”

Clint has been part of more superhero teams than almost anyone on the plant, some of which he played a significant role for. His most successful run came during his time with the West Coast Avengers, which he helped create.

Nothing in Clints life seems to last long. He changes names at least once a decade, he’s been married once and had numerous serious relationships, he can’t even hold down a job for more then a few years. Everything is always changing for Clint.

After retiring Clint found a new purpose to his life, beginning to take more serious stock in his personal life outside of his various Superhero-related duties. First he bought an apartment building in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn where he had recently began living, out from under the unsavory thugs who were going to evict all of his neighbors by tripling their rent. In the process, Hawkeye also adopted an injured dog named Lucky.
