Ask anyone who their favorite Avenger is, and Hawkeye probably isn't the first name mentioned… or even the second or third. It's a rotten shame, though, since Clint Barton is a great Avenger, even if he doesn't always receive the spotlight he deserves in Marvel Comics. Not only is Hawkeye an excellent marksman and hand-to-hand fighter, but he also has great one-liners to rival the quippiest of superheroes, such as Spider-Man.
While Clint isn't front and center of the Marvel Universe, there are classic stories that have showcased all that he's about. So, the next time someone argues Hawkeye is a terrible or weak Avenger, pull out this list and tell them to put some respect to the name of Hawkeye.
