Top-notch archer.


Clint Barton has the ability to 'play with the big boys', as it were. His self-taught archery skills are virtually unrivaled, and his ability to think on his feet gives him that added advantage to stay alive and sometimes one step ahead.


Having lost his parents in a car accident when he was young, Clint and his brother Bernard (Barney) were sent to a foster home. That didn't last long, however, when the two ran away to join a circus. Carnival, really, by the name of Carson Carnival of Traveling Wonders. It was there that the young Clint learned the art of archery and acrobatics from a man who took specific interest in his training.

Clint was an eager student, but somewhere along the line he was also instilled with a streak of 'right'. He discovered his mentor was stealing from the carnival, and he would be the one to stop him. He had been offered half the take, but still the answer was 'no' and a fight ensued. Unlike most stories, this one doesn't end with the young Clint victorious, but rather, he was beaten and left for dead. His brother also left with this mentor in complete disbelief that his brother could be so stupid as to not take the cash!?

A few more years pass, and another stepped in to help teach Clint, and even offered to take the young man with him on a raid of a 'bad guys' hideout'. He went willingly, but after the fight, realized that his brother was within, and that he'd injured his brother critically. That.. that was the final straw, and Clint Barton struck out on his own.

Along the way, he's found himself on the 'good' side and sometimes the 'bad', but always on his terms.

Character Details

He's good. He knows he's good. He's the best, and the moment he misses that shot? He's done. Until then, however?


Image Name Relation Notes
bobbi-02.jpg Bobbi Ex-wife Ex-wife. It's been something of a rollercoaster with her. For the time being, I think we're on an even track. Brought her into the JL:A, though gotta say after the hell she put me through about it, she surprised me with asking about getting in. Score one for the good guys!
LadyHawkeye01.jpg Kate Girlfriend Student, protege, friend. Don't like to admit it, but she's pulled me out of a few fires. Then again, I've done the same… but that's my job. Slowly discovering, after everything that's been going on, that I can't lose her. I'm just hoping now that she's met 'the family' and worked with them, she's not going to give up. It's a rough crowd, but she's pretty strong.
MariaHillProfile.jpg Hill The boss' boss Someone who can send my ass back to Turkey and eat more goat eyes. Still, it's good to know that she's got my back- pretty sure she does. Though, there was that time, once…
406px-blackwidow2.jpg 'Tash Co-Worker Partner and best friend. Not so much 'partner' at the moment, but I'll always be there when she calls, picking up where we left off.
paulmanning1.jpg Detective Manning Work contact Man's good at what he does. Nice to have a contact in the NYPD. And now I owe him Chinese.
600full-ellen-page.jpg Evelyn Good acquaintance Someone I can work with. Seems to be doing well in SHIELD. I'm glad. Making friends, influencing people. Like Stark.
annie2.jpg Annie Acquaintance Clerk at the store. Has helped me in the past with tips. She claims (WRONGLY!) that I tried to get her killed. For the record, I didn't.
DomProfile14.jpg Domino Not a positive acquaintance Someone I should definitely kill at one point. Just for my sanity. Okay, maybe not kill. Maybe.


"I mean, I can't miss… I'm on a team with super-humans. And one god, in case you've forgotten. Even you… well, you climb walls really well… I gave up a lot for this life. I could have been happy with Mockingbir— Bobbi. We could have had a good, simple life. But I wanted to play with the big boys. 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."
