Comics, Everybody: The History of Hawkeye Explained

It’s time again to break down the convoluted history of a comic book character in the recurring segment we call Comics, Everybody, written by Curt Franklin and drawn by Chris Haley of the webcomic Let’s Be Friends Again! Today’s subject: the Marvel Comics superhero Hawkeye, best known around the world as “that archer guy… who was that guy?” in Joss Whedon’s Avengers film. Although you might think a superhero equipped with just a bow, arrow and a great eye would offer few twists through the labyrinth of comics continuity, you would be wrong. It’s been a long ride for Clint Barton, whose latest series by Matt Fraction and David Aja is one of Marvel’s recent best. But how did he get there? Read on to find out.
