History and abilities

Clint Barton was an orphan, and ran away from the orphanage as a pre-teen to join the circus as a carnival performer, where he was trained in the use of the bow and arrow by the Swordsman and Trickshot. When he discovered that his mentors were both criminals he rejected them, leading to a beating by Swordsman which left Barton badly injured and hospitalized. Years later, he saw Iron Man in action, and was inspired and decided to become a costumed hero called Hawkeye. However, there is a misunderstanding on Hawkeye's first outing and he is believed to be a criminal, accused of theft.On the run, the naive Hawkeye meets the Black Widow, a spy for the Soviet Union, whom he falls in love with. She tricks him into helping her to steal technology developed by Tony Stark, Iron Man's alter ego. After several battles with Iron Man — who defeats the pair on every occasion — the Black Widow is injured and Hawkeye flees with her, deciding to go "straight" from then on. Hawkeye later "applies" for membership in the superhero team the Avengers, by breaking into the Avengers Mansion and binding and gagging the team's butler, Edwin Jarvis. Hawkeye is accepted, and together with leader Captain America and mutant siblings Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch become the new team when the original members take a leave of absence.Hawkeye remains a constant in the team for many years, and when his bow breaks at a crucial moment decides to use Pym particles to become the second Goliath. During this time, Barton suffers a personal setback as his brother Barney is killed by the villain Egghead, whom Goliath brings to justice. At the conclusion of the Kree-Skrull War Barton resumes the identity of Hawkeye in a new costume, and after a rift with team-mate the Vision over the affections of the Scarlet Witch, he resumes his old costume and resigns from the team. On a whim Hawkeye returns to the Black Widow and briefly battles her current love, Daredevil. Hawkeye then assists the Hulk against the monster Zzzax, and then follows the Hulk back to the mansion of Doctor Strange, where after a skirmish Hawkeye joins the "non-team" the Defenders for a short period.Hawkeye then drifts for a time, returning briefly to the Avengers to attend the wedding of the Vision and the Scarlet Witch. Together with the Two-Gun Kid and Ghost Rider, Hawkeye defeats the monster the Manticore before returning to the Avengers to assist when members of the team begin to mysteriously disappear. The remaining Avengers discover it to be the work of the Elder of the Universe the Collector. After his team-mates are all captured, Hawkeye single-handedly defeats the Collector, and joins the team for the final battle against Korvac. Hawkeye's victory is dashed when the Avengers new government liaison Henry Gyrich, limits the roster and replaces him with the Falcon, in an attempt to make the team more "politically acceptable". After initially failing to find work in his civilian identity, he successfully applies for work at Cross Technological Enterprises as Hawkeye, and then battles the Shi'ar villain Deathbird.Hawkeye returns to Avengers mansion several months later for a brief visit "induced" by the heroine Moondragon before then rejoining for a sustained period. It is at this time that Hawkeye inadvertently avenges the death of his brother. The villain Egghead, having been exposed for framing Henry Pym, attempts to shoot Pym but Hawkeye jams the barrel of the weapon with an arrow. The weapon is an energy pistol and explodes, killing Egghead instantly.Hawkeye then meets former S.H.I.E.L.D agent Barbara "Bobbi" Morse, codenamed Mockingbird. She is investigating the company Cross Technological Enterprises, which employs Hawkeye as a security consultant. The company is revealed to be owned by the villain Crossfire, who plans to use an aggression-inducing sonic wave against all of New York's superheroes. Hawkeye infiltrates Cross Technological Enterprises with Mockingbird to defeat Crossfire. During this encounter, Hawkeye takes one of his sonic arrows into his mouth to counter the effects of Crossfire's sonic weapon; as a result he suffers major hearing loss and is forced to wear hearing aids. Hawkeye and Mockingbird fall in love and elope immediately after.At the direction of then-Avengers chair Vision, Hawkeye and Mockingbird establish the team the West Coast Avengers. An adventure through time is significant and brings changes as Hawkeye forges the weapons that the modern hero Moon Knight will eventually use, and Mockingbird allows the Old West hero the Phantom Rider to fall to his death. When Hawkeye discovers this (through machinations of the ghost of Phantom Rider), he breaks off their relationship. Hawkeye then encounters and battles his old mentor, Trickshot and meets and inadvertently encourages a group of minor heroes to form the Great Lakes Avengers. Together with Mockingbird and Trickshot, Hawkeye battles a number of minor villains and then redesigns his costume after being shot by a criminal and battles Los Angeles street gangs.Hawkeye and Mockingbird reconcile, but soon after the robot Ultron kidnaps Mockingbird and copies her brain patterns to create a "wife" — Alkhema (also known as "War Toy"). Although Mockingbird is rescued, she is killed soon afterwards by the demon Mephisto. Embittered by Mockingbird's death, Hawkeye leaves the team (disbanded almost immediately afterwards) and drifts until forced to stop the villain Viper and old mentor Trick Shot. Hawkeye then returns to the Avengers  just prior to the battle with the entity Onslaught, in which the Avengers (including Hawkeye) are apparently killed. Franklin Richards, however, transported them all to a pocket dimension where the heroes led altered lives.  After several months, the heroes learned the truth and they were returned to the mainstream universe. Hawkeye's hearing was fully restored as, when Franklin Richards re-created the heroes in the new universe, he based them on how he remembered them (Hence also restoring Tony Stark to adulthood following his replacement by "Teen Tony" from an alternate timeline.Hawkeye then rejoins the Avengers, and after several adventures resigns to assume leadership of the first generation of the Thunderbolts, who have broken away from the influence of Baron Helmut Zemo. Hawkeye trains the team in the fashion of former team-mate Captain America, and shapes the team into a cohesive fighting unit. There are two significant events for Hawkeye during this period. The first involves entering Hell and battling the demon Mephisto to try and save the soul of his deceased wife, Mockingbird. Hawkeye, however, rescues Patsy Walker, but fails to see Mockingbird. This event gives Hawkeye some closure and he begins a romantic relationship with his Thunderbolt teammate, Moonstone.The team reforms after a series of battles with another version of the Masters of Evil. Hawkeye eventually leaves the team, relinquishing leadership to Citizen V, whose mind was under control of Baron Helmut Zemo. Hawkeye joins the Avengers once more, and has a brief romantic relationship with team member the Wasp. Hawkeye eventually dies during the chaos caused by the breakdown of the Scarlet Witch, sacrificing himself to destroy a Kree spaceship and save his teammates.When the Scarlet Witch inadvertently alters reality, Hawkeye is resurrected with no memory of previous events. During this time, Hawkeye joins a Human Resistance operated by Luke Cage and was married to Mockingbird. When a young mutant named Layla Miller gives several heroes - including Hawkeye - the ability to remember, he is horrified at the Scarlet Witch's actions. Hawkeye shoots Wanda in the back with an arrow, and in retaliation one of her recreated children wipes him from existence. When the Scarlet Witch's reality is eventually undone, Hawkeye is still presumed dead, and the recently formed New Avengers find his bow and arrows on the site of the old Avengers Mansion, pinning up an article about his death. Hawkeye is later plucked from time by the Time Variance Authority to serve as a juror in a case involving former Avengers teammate She-Hulk. She-Hulk tries unsuccessfully to warn Hawkeye as to his future.New AvengersUnknown to the New Avengers, Hawkeye was resurrected once reality was restored, and seeks out Dr. Strange, who offers Hawkeye shelter while he comes to terms with his new life. On the advice of Dr. Strange, Hawkeye eventually travels to Wundagore Mountain and finds the Scarlet Witch living a normal life with no memory of her past and apparently without mutant abilities. The two become intimate and Hawkeye then leaves Wanda to her normal life.Once Hawkeye discovers that Captain America has apparently been killed, he confronts Tony Stark, who offers him Captain America's shield and costume. As Iron Man, Stark accompanies Barton — now dressed as Captain America — on patrol. They meet the new Hawkeye, Kate Bishop, defeating the supervillain Firebrand. Barton confronts Bishop about her assumption of the Hawkeye mantle. Unaware of his true identity, Bishop berates Barton and states that she adopted Hawkeye's name to honor him, and that if Hawkeye were alive, she would adopt another name. She also affirms that the "real" Captain America gave her the name Hawkeye and his old bow as a tribute to his dead friend. Bishop's words convince Barton to return the shield and costume to Stark, and condemn him for his role in the Civil War.Barton returns to speak with Dr. Strange, and to protect himself from recognition adopts the identity of Ronin and joins the New Avengers. As Ronin, he accompanies the team on a journey to Japan to rescue the heroine Echo. Echo—the original Ronin—later gives Barton her blessing to adopt her old identity. The pair later begin a relationship.Secret InvasionAfter an alien Skrull ship crashes in the Savage Land, Barton battles and kills Skrulls impersonating Mockingbird and himself. He is reunited with the real Mockingbird during a final battle with the Skrulls.Dark ReignWhile Clint and his wife join up with the New Avengers to search for Luke Cage's daughter, Norman Osborn forms the Dark Avengers with villains assuming the identities of fugitive heroes; Bullseye assumes the identity of Hawkeye. Clint is very much infuriated that those who would exploit their good names take advantage of the invasion. He doesn't even want to wait for the Dark Avengers to show their true colors and wants to fight them immediately. After a failed attempt to lure the Dark Avengers into a battle turns instead into a fight with the Hood's crime syndicate, Clint goes on television, unmasked, and publicly denounces the Dark Avengers, stating that Osborn has formed an allience with the Hood, and urging people to fight against his new regime.ABILITIES:Though he has no superpowers, Hawkeye is still force to be reckoned with. He is a peak-athlete, possessing exception, strength, speed, stamina, and agility. He is a world-class archer and marksman. Hawkeye is also a talented acrobat, performing acrobatic maneuvers that an Olympic gold medalist would envy. He has been trained in hand-to hand combat by Captain America himself, making him an accomplished combatant. Hawkeye is also shown to be a fine leader and strategist.His most famous ability, Hawkeye is able to hurl or fire projectiles with extreme speed and accuracy. He is also able to fire or throw objects against walls or other obstacles, resulting in complicated rebounding situations. Hawkeye is also known for his utilization of several "trick arrows" containing explosives, electrical discharges, nets, etc.As Goliath, Clint used Hank Pym's "Pym Particles" to increase his height and strength.Hawkeye is one of few people able to handle Captain America's shield.Acid ArrowsAdamantium Arrows (often combined with Electrical arrowhead)Blunt ArrowsBola ArrowsCable Arrow (allowing him to swing through the air)Electrical ArrowBlast (Explosive) ArrowFlare ArrowNet ArrowPutty Arrow (adheres to rough surfaces, and can stop exposed machinery)Pym Particles Arrow (increases or decreases the size on an object or opponent)Smoke ArrowSonic ArrowTear Gas ArrowThermal ArrowVibranium Arrow (must have supplement Magnetic, Putty, or Suction Cup arrowhead to stick to target; deadens kinetic and vibratory energies).Vibration ArrowBoomerang Arrowhead (allows an arrow to return to shooter)Magnetic Arrowhead (adheres to metal surfaces; can be added to other arrows)Rocket Arrowhead (boosts range, can be added to other arrows)Suction Cup Arrowhead (adheres to smooth surfaces; can be added to other arrows)And as secret agent Hawkeye, (as I liked to dub him), Hawkeye posseses two M1911 pistols which he can aim with great accuracy. It's not comparable to Deadpool or other master gunsman, but it's pretty close.And Hawkeye has shown that he's also an expert on working with swords and blades, being taught by Swordsman himself.

Rules blog

Okay I know what you're thinkin'.... another rules blog?? I go through more rules blogs then I do toilet paper on any given day!Well don't sweat it, I like rules just about as much as when my uniform gets shrunk in the wash or I'm hanging off a cliff by only an arrow and if I'm lucky, my teeth. I'll just try ta make sure I don't have so many rules to make your brain cells pop like grape sitting on the rear of Hulk's behind, Like some people I've seen. *cough*Fury*cough*.But these have been updated since last time ya saw me in these familiar purple tights. So if ya do read em, I hope it'll be worth your time and I'll appreciate if ya do.#1: No one liners, I'm a multi para kind of RPer, I'll only reply to you if it's at least a full paragraph, what do I mean by this? Good question!It was morning, and Clint Barton had just woken up and was in the break room, getting himself some breakfast for himself, as he poured himself a cup of coffee. Normally he wasn't the coffee sort of guy, he liked iced tea better among other more healthier options, (and not to much he considered the coffee place the 'geek corner', because all the great scientists seemed to be run on nothing more then coffee). But he had been having some sleepless nights lately, thinking about stuff, going on patrol, trying to fight some crime, and practicing on his archery, so he may not have been a scientist, but he was a busy bee nowadays. So he definitely needed the coffee.Something like that, anything that gives me something to work off of, my brain may not be the size as the tip of my arrow, but I'm not eternal contemplater either#2: Please spellcheck your work, it's okay if you have occasional misspellings, but if don't you capitalize, or if you put it all in big letters, or if it's full of Non English words, I'm not gonna reply to you. None of this.hi, how are U? can we do smoe rp dudde?#3: No autoing or god-modding me, (that's a pretty obvious one.... well, except if you're an idiot, but if you read this, then you're not one of them ;) ). Which basically means.... move your char not mine....  like this:As Hawkeye went towards Red skull he grabbed him by the arm and struck the arrow right through his heart.It should be like this:As Hawkeye went towards Red skull he attempted to grab him by the arm and if he did, he would then take out an arrow and attempt to strike it right through his heart.You are not me, though you probably want to be me, but to that I say.... you'll just have to get your own bottle of awesome.#4: If you create OOC drama.... then I'm seeing a shiny button in your future. It's called the delete button.... sometimes things are just misunderstandings, I will work with you on those, but if you just plain create drama, then you're gone.#5: And refering to the above rule.... don't go spying on me and start spreading rumors about me that you don't have the facts about, I'm just here to RP, nothing more, Hawkeye's one of my favorite characters.... so I couldn't leave on the shelf for long y'know. ;)So if you're here for the above.... then I would say get a life, or better yet, join the FBI, it's probably alot funner there anyway#6: I know, sometimes you girls just can't resist me, (and maybe the occassional creepy guy.... ew), but I don't do the flirt thing just cause I can. It's cool on occasion.... but y'know, just don't drool all over first time around k?#7: I may or may not get Hawkeye into a relationship, I'm very picky about how I choose..... RP relationships are a easy thing to mess up. So I'm not goona get in one unless I know it's gellin'#8: Dudes.... as much as a select few of you may like it.... I just don't do the gay thing. No offense to you, but it's just not in Hawkeye's character.#9: I have a RL too, (a pretty busy one), so please be patient with replies and stuff.And speaking of RL.... if you got yourself all curious and wonder what I do.... I'm not gonna answer you back, just that simple. If I want, I'll tell you, but don't expect it.#10: Oh and no cheap RPing around me. What do I mean by that? I mean being a fair fighter, taking the hits while also dishing them out and now crazy moves that you cna't even imagine your character but do anyway cause it looks cool.For an example I like something like this:A fourth thug came up behind him and grabbed an arrow from his quiver and tried to lunge at Hawkeye's head. Luckily, he felt the arrow being pulled out of his quiver, so he turned around and quickly dodged the shot, grabbing onto the arrow with his hand. He then threw a punch to the guy's head, which stunned him long enough to make him let go of the arrow. Hawkeye then spun around and threw an elbow to the guy's head and quickly followed with a spinning kick to the guy's gut, which knocked him flat on the ground.Instead of this:Hawkeye then saw as he shot a bullet at him and then he went and dodged the bullet before he went and run over to the Swordsman, full speed ahead to land a punch on him. But as he ran right towards him he the got his sword and tried to slice Hawkeye just as he came right in front of him. Hawkeye then went and ducked his shoulder in, dodging the slice.See what I mean? If you imagine that scenerio in your head, doesn't make sense, so just make sure your posts before you post them ask someone else for advice if you need it. Even I need to ask advice once in a while, (believe it or not), so unless it hurts your squishy soft ego to ask, then ask. XP But point is just be fair.#11: If you sign my rules I'll sign yours, cause that's how I roll.#12: And the most important rule of ALL!....... Have fun! This is why I'm here. I think often times, people forget this rule because of say, drama, or maybe other goals people somehow deem as more important. But the point is guys...... have fun!#13: PSYCH! You thought I was going for the Baker's dozen didn't ya?? Well I hope you weren't betting any racehorses on it!If you have read these rules, please sign them so so I know you have. Thanks for adding me and reading my rules guys! I hope to have alot fun with y'all. ;)

What's in a Name? (C.S)

come out of the woods. cs

i can hear the forest breathe – the way it sighs when the air passes through. like a song that never wants to end. like a whisper that knows i will hear it even though others never could. it’s almost sensual, the way predators circle their next meal, biting, claiming, glimpses of the pursuit, dragging prey deeper into the forest. he ventured into the bosk, stepped on disfigured shadows cast by the canopy above, followed disembodied promises; time stood still and he waited for someone to find him.
