Orphaned at a young age, Clint Barton ran away to the circus with his brother, Barney (who would go on to become one of his greatest foes). At the circus, he mastered the art of archery and left after discovering his mentors were criminals, becoming a solo carnival act.
During one of his performances, he witnessed Iron Man rescue some civilians and was inspired to become a costumed hero, using his archery skills to become the superhero known as Hawkeye. While he had a rough start and even collaborated with the then-villainous Black Widow to bring down Tony Stark, he eventually joined the Avengers and became one of its most valuable members.
