Clint has appeared in thousands of comics so it's difficult to keep up with everything that's happened to him over the years. Fortunately Marvel does a pretty good job of clearing it all up by trying to provide a consistent history with limited backtracking and retconning.

As a reminder, if you aren't caught up to recent comics this site may contain unmarked spoilers.

If you're looking for a more in depth analysis of Clint Barton look no further. I have countless opinions on the subject and I'm always happy to share.

If you are new to Hawkeye and Marvel, you can get a quick intro by watching The Avengers movie that properly introduces Hawkeye to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. If you want something more Marvel subscriptions are available online and a quick sample of the Fraction and Aja run is available here.
