History:

(Tales of Adventure #57) - Hawkeye, who developed his extraordinary archery skills through ardent study at a monastery in Tibet, made his first on-panel appearance.
 

(Secret Crisis of the Infinity Hour) - Along with the other members of the Judgment League: Avengers, Hawkeye was transported to Apokolips by Doctor Strangefate (Charles Xavier) in order to fight the forces of Thanoseid during the Secret Crisis of the Infinity Hour.
 

(Secret Crisis of the Infinity Hour#7) - Near the close of the Secret Crisis of the Infinity Hour, Hawkeye was among those heroes present as American Girl (Carol Barnes), the former sidekick of Super-Soldier (Clark Kent), heroically sacrificed her life to further the heroes' cause.
 

(Judgment League: Avengers (vol. II)#122) - "Trial of Mariner" - The metamutant member of the Judgment League: Avengers known as Aqua-Mariner (Arthur McKenzie) was framed for the destruction of three Roxxon oil freighters, a heinous criminal act which was actually perpetrated by the metamutant-hating madman known as Will Magnus.  Given Aqua-Mariner's longtime personal war against surface dwellers who would harm his undersea habitat, the United States government automatically labeled him an "eco-terrorist" and sent in an army of troops to apprehend him without so much as an investigation.  Hawkeye and his fellow non-metamutant members of the JLA eventually captured Aqua-Mariner and imprisoned him without trial.

Outraged by the manner in which their fellow metamutant was imprisoned without trial, most of the metamutant members of the JLA, under the guidance of the mysterious New Gotham power broker known only as Mr. X (Marco Xavier), freed Aqua-Mariner from JLA custody and set out to find the lost city of Atlantis, the legendary city of Homo Superior, under the surface of the Atlantic Ocean.  But Hawkeye and his fellow non-metamutant members of the Judgment League: Avengers were not about to give up Aqua-Mariner without a fight . . .
 

 (JLX#1) - "A League of Their Own" - On the stormy waters of the North Atlantic Ocean, Hawkeye and the Judgment League: Avengers engaged their former teammates -- the band of renegade metamutants now known as the JLX -- in an attempt to capture the metamutant Aqua-Mariner (Arthur McKenzie), who was wanted for torching Roxxon oil tankers. At the command of Super-Soldier, Hawkeye attempted to disable the JLX Wavecruiser with his arrows, but the metamutant Mercury (Pietro Allen) intercepted them before the arrows hit their intended target. But one of Hawkeye's stray arrows got past Mercury and struck the metamutant known as Runaway in the head. Fortunately, Runaway had just absorbed the powers of JLA member Goliath (Oliver Queen) and was not seriously injured by the arrow. After Angelhawk (the JLA member who was secretly a metamutant in league with Mr. X) feigned a broken back, Super-Soldier instructed the Judgment League: Avengers to retreat, vowing to bring Aqua-Mariner to justice another day.

Hawkeye (Clint Archer) used his archery-related skills to develop a crossbow for the New Gotham vigilante known as Huntress (Carol Danvers), although Hawkeye was under the impression that she desired him more than archery lessons.
 

A love triangle exists among Hawkeye (Clint Archer), Canary (Dinah Barton), and Goliath (Oliver Queen).
 

Hawkeye is referred to as "Clint Archer" in the Amalgam Comics Trading Cards Set (Card#18) while Mercury (Pietro Allen) refers to him as "Mr. Barton" on JLX#1, page 2.  Since Canary's real name is Dinah Barton, I decided to go with "Archer" as Hawkeye's last name.  Perhaps Mercury was merely poking fun at Hawkeye's suggested relationship with Canary by calling him "Mr. Barton."
 

In case you're confused, Amalgam Comics didn't really exist beyond those seen in the few DC/Marvel cross-over. The titles you don't recognize are amalgams of similar Marvel and DC comics--Snood.

Amalgam Universe

Earth-Amalgam
 

TALES OF ADVENTURE is an amalgam of Marvel's TALES OF SUSPENSE (Marvel's Hawkeye
debuted in TALES OF SUSPENSE#57) and DC's ADVENTURE COMICS (DC's Green Arrow was revived for the Silver Age in 1959's ADVENTURE COMICS #256).
 

Special thanks to penciler Matthew Haley for identifying Hawkeye (Clint Archer) as one of the characters present at the death of American Girl (Carol Barnes) in SECRET CRISIS OF THE INFINITY HOUR #7.
