When I first tumbled onto the Avengers there were only three members, Goliath, the Wasp and the outstanding Hawkeye the Marksman.
Hawkeye is the ultimate no-powers hero, hanging and banging with the big boys against mighty menaces armed with only his arrows, his savage wit, and his unblinking courage. Hawkeye, revealed to be a man named Clint Barton after I started reading about him, could be an asshole for certain.

It's actually the second time Hawkeye's fiery nature was ripped off, the first was when DC updated their own bowman Green Arrow long ago. It took Hawkeye years and years to get his own series and to become what I always knew was his first best mission, the leader of the Avengers.
When he married Mockingbird, he became even more of a favorite.
