Clint Barton's parents were killed in an automobile accident, and the youngster placed in a state orphanage. At 14, Barton ran away to join a traveling carnival, where he was tutored by the Swordsman. For years, Barton practiced with the bow and arrow. Soon, he became a good enough trick-shooter to perform professionally under the name Hawkeye the Marksman. Witnessing Iron Man in action, Barton attempted to emulate the hero by donning a colorful costume and employing his archery skills to fight crime. Weeks later, Barton's attraction to the Black Widow led him to actually commit criminal acts. Hawkeye knew deep down he had strayed from his quest to become a hero. When he approached the Avengers, Iron Man sponsored his membership on the team.
Hawkeye lives life on the edge, straddling the line between right and wrong with a battle-ready swagger that masks an inner struggle for acceptance. For years he served as a valued member of the Avengers, his archery skills complementing his associates' superhuman powers.
Man, I LOVE Hawkeye. He's and all time favorite Marvel of mine, but this figure did not meet my expectations. I spent forty freaking bucks on this guy!
So, his sculpting is OK... I do like the scaled upper chest part, and all the pockets and stuff around his body, but his face looks kinda funny, his mouth mostly. The mask is the original one, which I like more than the one with the huge Batman ears. Obviously, everyone knew his quiver would be filled with sweet bum arrows, like the one with Scott Lang as Ant-Man, which goes with the cover of the comic they threw in with him. His hover bike or whatever is also cool, but it's difficult to get him to sit on it right. And I have to say, I would have been really disappointed if they hadn't given him the skirt :D It's a nice touch that...[See More]
I love this figure! It has a more slender construction than most other ML figures (which totally fits his comic build)and has 38(?) POA. I was really impressed with the legs, having 6 poa knees down. The loose arrows are cool and look gimmicky(like they should) and fit in the quiver snugly. One of the arrows comes with a tiny Ant Man laying on it to re-create the scene on the cover of the included comic. The base is the atomic steed he used in the Thunderbolts comic(he may have used it before, im not sure) and he sits on it without being put in an unrealistic pose. The only problem with this figure i had was getting one. This is, in my veiw, is the best ML figure produced....[See More]
