There he made a living as an expert archer and acrobat, before witnessing the heroics of Iron Man who saved countless lives from a deadly ride malfunction.

Joining forces with Russian Spy Black Widow, the archer was compelled to take on Iron man, before realizing the error of his ways. In this video, WatchMojo.com explores the origins of Hawkeye.
