Although he doesn't have any superpowers (usually), Hawkeye aka Clint Barton has always been a key member of the Avengers, in both the Marvel Comics and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Audiences have grown familiar with the character since his introduction to the MCU in 2011, and with the upcoming release of Hawkeye on Disney+, they will have the opportunity to learn even more about the superhero.
Sporting a bow and arrow, Barton has had his work cut out for him, fighting alongside the likes of Iron Man and Thor against some grossly superpowered villains like Loki, Ultron, and Thanos with the same kind of weapon that cavemen used to hunt animals in prehistoric times.
In spite of this, Hawkeye's importance in both universes cannot be underestimated - when his duties as a hero calls, Barton is always at the forefronts of battles with the highest of stakes. From his portrayal as a deaf character to all of the kinds of trick arrows he has, here are some of the most fascinating things about Hawkeye and his history as a character in comics, film, and television that you might not know.
