Why Hawkeye? Well, why don’t we ask Hawkeye himself, Mr Clint Barton!
“Whaddya mean you don’t know why I was chosen? I’m the best there is at what I do – shotting arrows. Sure, I used to be a crook, turning to a life of crime for money instead of going to the Olympics and becoming world famous but I was young(er) back then.
And it paid off – the Avengers saw some good in me and asked me to join their ranks. Now I travel the globe, doing what Avengers do best....Avengering. Some may say that I am a secondary character, that my multi-faceted arrows are nothing but a cheap way to get out of a tight situation. Well, to those people I say YOUR MOTHER!
Now if you excuse me, I have to go and continue working on my next brilliant arrow invention – a shark repellent arrow.”
