"I'm strictly a bow and arrow type."
Ladies and gentlemen, my third reveal: Clint Barton, the original Hawkeye. While not an original member, he is considered one of the essential Avengers by many. He started out his comic career as a villain until he reformed and had Iron Man back his sponsor and was elected to the team. I'm a big fan of this character and while he's taken a few detours from his purple and blue moniker (Ronin), he'll be back when the Avengers reform in Marvel's Heroic Age.
He's a skilled marksman, tactician, and personality up the wazoo. He's a great team member and asset to whoever's flag he's bearing.
Welcome aboard, Clint.
