History:

(Spidey Super Stories#49/3 (fb)) - Clint Barton worked as a circus performer, specializing as a trick-shot archer. He then decided to go into crime-fighting using archery, later stopping a fleeing jewelery store robber.

(Spidey Super Stories#40/3) - Hawkeye became an Avenger alongside Captain America, Scarlet Witch and Vision.

(Spidey Super Stories#40/5) - Hawkeye took a vacation in the country and encountered Spider-Man investigating fake trees and forest clearing. Concerned it would lead to food shortages(!), Hawkeye took Spider-Man to inspect a nearby wood cabin, secretly the lair of the wood-coveting Schemer. The villain suddenly appeared and charged at them with a bulldozer, but Hawkeye stopped it with a well-placed arrow in the engine. Trying to escape, the Schemer took off in a hidden rocket, so Spider-Man and Hawkeye put together a giant bow and arrow using small tree trunks. Hawkeye helped aim while Spidey fired, causing the rocket to crash. The two heroes then captured the Schemer.

(Spidey Super Stories#43/3) - Hawkeye stayed with the Avengers when Iron Man and Beast joined.

(Spidey Super Stories#49/5) - On his way home, Barton was knocked over by the reckless Rocket Racer and secretly changed into his Hawkeye gear in a nearby alley to give chase. He stopped a startled horse-and-carriage using a fire arrow and joined Spider-Man in chasing Rocket Racer. The skateboarder was rocketing up the side of a building, so Hawkeye used a normal arrow to chock the wheels. Spider-Man caught the falling Rocket Racer while Hawkeye used a net arrow to catch the rocket skateboard. However, Jimmy, a skateboarding fan and friend of Spider-Man tried out Rocket Racer's board while the others were distracted. Unable to control the rocket-powered skateboard, Jimmy veered into traffic. Hawkeye fired a hot arrow to melt the tar while Spider-Man caught Jimmy. Seeing the danger he had caused, Rocket Racer told the two heroes that he would not be a show-off again.

Comments: Created by writer, pencils, inks.

Along with many other characters, Hawkeye appeared on the single-color back cover advert of Spidey Super Stories#52, showing that he too read Spidey Super Stories.

Physical stats are taken from the Earth-616 version, as they look very much alike.
