- I've dedicated my life to eradicating crime. I don't need to be an Avenger to do that though. Luckily, I've managed to get some other no-name heroes to join my cause. We won't stop until we live in a world where someone can go outside without the fear of being killed.
Murderer on the Loose
Clint was born and raised in a small neighborhood which was a very bad environment for a child to grow up in. His parents attempted to keep him out of trouble, but when word got around that a murderer had hit the streets of their neighborhood, they had to keep Clint inside at all times. Eventually the first dead body was found with an arrow stuck through their chest, and a note was attached saying that the person reading it would be next. And so a chain of events had begun, and eventually, Clint's parents found the next dead body.
They had become more paranoid than ever. Eventually, the murderer came to their house when they were having a family dinner. No matter how hard his father tried to talk the man out of it, he shot and killed each of Clint's parents. However, after seeing Clint crying he decided to let the kid go free. When Clint was taken in by his uncle, he later saw a broadcast that confirmed the murderer had stabbed himself in the heart with an arrow, claiming he stuck around too long to witness the murder. Right then and there, Clint swore he would avenge his parents.
For the whole rest of his life, Clint's uncle raised him and helped to train him. From time to time he would attempt to talk Clint out of revenge, but he claimed it would be vengeance, never revenge. Clint would spend all of his time learning to never miss a target. Even when he was the perfect archer, he would not quit. He wouldn't stop until he was the perfect hero. Eventually, Clint's training caused him and his uncle to lose touch, so Clint didn't even know why his uncle suddenly dropped dead in their living room. After witnessing what he had become, he wanted to take vengeance sooner than ever.
Hitting the Streets
- Clint's backstory is similar to that of the DC hero, Batman, in order to establish Hawkeye as Batman's Earth-1 equivalent.
