Kranpuff, Bobcat and the Claws were almost winning against the super hero, but when Kranpuff left Hawkeye's body again, Hawkeye easily defeated the criminals.

BTS - Bobcat was one of several criminals hired by Crossfire to capture Hawkeye, so that he could have his right arm surgically removed, as vengeance for past defeats.
