Hawkeye's 8 Greatest Moments

Take aim at some of both Hawkeyes’ greatest hits.

Hawkeye

Whether traditional or trick, Hawkeye’s arrows—be they set loose by Clint Barton or Kate Bishop—speed to their targets with unerring accuracy, thanks to skill, dead-aim, and sometimes a little luck.

Below, we’re taking aim at a few of both Hawkeyes’ greatest hits, the shots and the arrows that make us sit up and cheer the for the amazing archers.

Arrows vs. Armor

From his very first appearance in TALES OF SUSPENSE #57, Hawkeye showed off his devil-may-care attitude by tackling Iron Man himself and almost ruined the Golden Avenger’s armor with rusting-fluid, tangling, and demolition blast arrows.

Baiting the Butler

To prove his skill and gain membership in the Avengers, Hawkeye lined up an incredible shot in AVENGERS #16: a triple-arrow whiz-bang that released Jarvis the butler from temporary captivity…provided by the amazing archer to put the manservant out of harm’s way.

Corralling the Collector

Hawkeye found himself going solo versus the cosmically-charged Collector in AVENGERS #174, and even when pinned under tons of collapsing metal, he managed to shoot an arrow with an electrical charge at the villain and take him completely off guard and out of the game.

Dancing with Death

Caught in the middle of a battle with an invading Kree army in AVENGERS #502, Hawkeye sized up the situation and knew how to turn the tide for Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in their darkest hour. Using himself as an arrow, he shot off into the sky with a Kree rocket pack to blow up an alien battleship, seemingly sacrificing his life in the process.

Effortless Energy

In her first outing as the new Hawkeye in YOUNG AVENGERS #5, Kate Bishop proved no slouch in the unerring aim department by picking up a bow and arrow as a neophyte and nailing the time-traveling tyrant Kang dead-center to fry his armor.

Gaining on Giants

When Kate Bishop fell during the sprawling super hero battle against the shape-shifting Skrulls in SECRET INVASION #7, the still-alive original Hawkeye came out from undercover to pick up Kate’s bow and send a volley of arrows into not only a phalanx of Skrull, but the evil Skrull queen herself.

Invitation to Intrigue

“This looks bad.” Broken glass, falling hero, several stories up, one arrow. That seemingly simple moment, and that seemingly simple shot, defined the man in HAWKEYE #22, and we wouldn’t want him any other way.
