Who's Who? Wednesday

October 12, 2011


In honor of the new 'Avengers' trailer that was released yesterday, today's Who's Who will be about a member of the Avengers. Clint Barton, aka Hawkeye, is a member of the superhero group Avengers. Hawkeye can be found in many things including television shows such as Iron Man, The Avengers: United They Stand, The Marvel Super Heroes, The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, The Super Hero Squad Show, and a cameo in the Fantastic Four. He can be seen in video games like Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Spider-Man: The Video Game, Marvel: Ultimate Alliance, Captain America, and the Avengers, and Venom/Spider-Man: Separation Anxiety. In films he can be seen in Thor, Next Avengers: Heroes of Tomorrow, and the upcoming 2012 film, The Avengers. Finally, he can be found in various comics books, toys and merchandise.

He was born in Waverly, Iowa but was put in a orphanage when he was young after his parents died. His mother, father, brother, and wife are all deceased, so really he only has his allies, the avengers, and a few other fellow heroes as his friends and people he can rely on. He has quite a few enemies over the years with the biggest being Crossfire, Bullseye, and his former mentor Trick Shot. His brother eventually took over as Trick Shot and it was soon a sibling rivalry.

Hawkeye wears a purple and blue costume. He has a purple and blue mask which has an H on it, purple wrist guards, and a purple arrow sack with a purple bow. In the upcoming movie, The Avengers, Hawkeye has more of a red and black costume with no mask. I like his new look much better then the comic book version. It feels more current and doesn't stand out so much.

Hawkeye was created by Stan Lee and Don Heck. In the later versions of his stories he had a different creative team for each of his volumes in the comic books. Jeremy Renner will be playing Hawkeye in the 2012 film.

In my opinion Disney is sitting on a real gold mine when it comes to the Marvel Universe. Hopefully they will put Hawkeye and the rest of the characters somewhere in the parks soon. It really is amazing to see the comic book world and how many different types of fans there are. Comic Books have hundreds of new readers daily, and it continues to grow and be extremely popular. So Disney if you read this, bring Marvel characters, attractions and shows in the theme parks!
