Onscreen History of Hawkeye

Marvels answer to Green Arrow, Clint Barton AKA Hawkeye the purple archer first appeared in Tales of Suspense #57 in 1964 and now rumors are heating up that he will be the latest Avenger to assemble in the 2012 live action team-up movie. Lets take a look at Hawkeye's previous appearances over the years.

Hawkeye first appeared in the 1966 Marvel Super Heroes animated series which faithfully adapted stories from the comics.

His next appearance would not occur for nearly 30 years until 1994 when he served as a series regular member of the Force Works team in the Iron Man animated series.

Around the same time, Clint Barton's Goliath persona made a cameo appearance in the Fantastic Four animated series as a member of the Avengers.

Hawkeye's next appearance occurred in 1999's disastrous Avengers: United They Stand series.

Hawkeye made a cameo in the 2008 Next Avengers: Heroes of Tomorrow DtV movie along with fellow fallen Avengers.

Clint's son Francis however was one of the main characters of the film carrying on the family legacy of master archery.

Most recently, Hawkeye has joined pretty much the entire Marvel Universe in the Superhero Squad Show where his classic costume actually suits him well. Its probably safe to assume his live action look may deviate quite a bit, but I still expect to see some purple somewhere.

UPDATE: July 18, 2011

Hawkeye also made a cameo appearance in the 2011 Thor movie, introducing the character in preparation for an expanded role in the Avengers movie in 2012.

  1. An old issue of Avengers Spotlight featuring Hawkeye (and Hercules) was what first got me interested in comic books. Hawkeye's still my favorite.
