MEDIEVAL AVENGERS | CLINT BARTON, THE MARKSMAN
Clinton Barton, once known as the infamous thief “Hawkeye” before his employing as a personal assistant to Prince Loki, is known as the best marksman in the Nine Kingdoms. His personal motto of ‘I never miss’ has never been proven otherwise.
Although he was hired to attend to the second prince, he often found himself following and babysitting the older on the orders of Loki, to “make sure Thor does not burn down the city.” He is jokingly called the ‘Royal Nursemaid’ by the others in court.
When Prince Thor is banished, Barton is sent out to kill the prince and prevent him from returning for the crown. Knowing what had happened to warrant the banishment, he makes a different call and spares Thor — it was Loki’s doing that landed him here, even if Thor did punch the King of Jötunheim in the face. After Loki poisons the King and takes over Asgard, Clint works undercover with the Avengers to stop him and put Thor back on the throne where he belongs.
