through ardent study at a monastery in Tibet, made his first on-panel
(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
(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

(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

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.
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.
TALES OF ADVENTURE
is an amalgam of Marvel's TALES OF SUSPENSE (Marvel's
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.
