Can hawkeye beat anyone in the avengers?

I was just remembering the lineups and saw hawkeye. I then wondered if he can beat anyone on the team. What are your opinions?

@X35: But D-Man has Hostess cupcakes.

D-Man is poor.

Theoretically, he can defeat almost any Avenger, assuming they don't use their powers and he gets to construct his arrows out of whatever material he needs.

Sure, he can shoot an adamantium arrow, but can he shoot it with sufficient force to impale Thor through the heart and kill him? Nope...

@WarMachineMarkV: Wolverine, Daredevil and Iron Man have him beat still.

Depends on the trick arrows he has at the time.

Yeah like an arrow made from kryptoni... wait...

Well considering he ACTUALLY HAS Beaten several Avengers, this topic is rather pointless.

Let's see. He's owned Iron Man multiple times. Taken on Hulk AND She-Hulk at one time BY HIMSELF. Beat Captain America 1 on 1 (recently too). Schooled Abomination(Gives Hulk a hard time), ALL of the Wrecking Crew (4 Thor Level Villains), and much much more. And all of these things happen in the regular Marvel U 616.

He could kill most of them. Just wait til their asleep and put an arrow in their eye.

In a random encounter..every one of those characters would murder Hawkeye.Iron Man especially.

@Vance Astro:

Hawkeye has beaten Iron man more times the stark has beaten him

Hawkeye can beat all avengers except Thor as long as he has the right gear

lol hawkeye vs thor

Hawkeye may not have superpowers, but he is not to be underestimated, and will jump into a battle when some of the most powerful are in doubt.

With no weapons or armor he could beat Stark,Pym,Maybe D-man most of the girls other than She-Hulk and Tigress. Um... Maybe Black Knight ,Swordsman and some other lesser known Avengers but not many. He has the fighting skill but most are just to fast and or strong for him.

Given enough preparation time, I would say that the only people he couldn't beat would be Hulk, Quicksilver and any other Avengers with super speed that I don't know about

He beats Thor.

"Given enough preparation time, I would say that the only people he couldn't beat would be Hulk, Quicksilver and any other Avengers with super speed that I don't"___ or the ones who can evaporate him with one shot.____ Cap really should be to good for him. Cap dodges bullets so arrows should be nothing to him. Hercules ,Ares ,Thor, Wonderman,Sentry and the Hulks are just to strong to stop. Beast might be to fast. Wolverine would cut the arrows out of the air. USAgent already kicked his butt. Vision can't be touched. Ironman lost to him before but it's PS.

in terms of Cap dodging bullets, Hawkeye could probably use some kind of arrow that releases a widely spread net or has a powerful explosive and shoot three or four in different directions so that Cap would struggle to defend himself against all of them with his shield. Hawkeye could use special arrows tailored to beat each Avenger separately.

#23 Posted by Enosisik (1153 posts) - - Show Bio

And cap blocks and dodges point blank machine gun fire from multiple attackers, so a couple arrows shouldn't be a problem. It doesn't matter,Hawkeye is like Batman in that he's always going to pull out a shark repellent arrow or something stupid like that to give him an edge for plot reasons.

.............some of these comments sound like were talking about Batman lol

@BlackArmor: If I had to compare Hawkeye to someone in DC it would be Nightwing, the 2 have alot in common.

#26 Posted by jayskee (1905 posts) - - Show Bio

Hawkeye has beaten every avenger except for thor and Hercules

Nay, he loses that one to Hercules.

#28 Posted by BiteMe-Fanboy (7901 posts) - - Show Bio

Yes he could beat some of them.

#29 Posted by WinterSoIdier (34 posts) - - Show Bio

He may catch them off guard while they're laughing at him. Even then he'd still lose.

He's a puny human with a toy bow.

Since the Young Avengers has officially been recognized as members of Avengers, I guess Hawkeye could beat Hawkeye.

The only one I'm not sure of is Hulkling since he lacks feats. The rest could stomp him though:

Hulkling's durability and strength could overwhelm him.

Wiccan took the the wrecking crew all by himself. He has a forcefield on to protect him against the arrows and can just rain lightning on Hawkeye. Hawkeye is fast, but he's not faster than lightning.

Speed is just too fast for him, and he doesn't need to touch Hawkeye to explode him from afar.

@Redberry: same could be said about any human character in any comic universe. Superman would cream Batman so on and so forth. you mixing realisim with fiction. Thats called realistic fiction, comics like these do not fall under this category. Thats like saying Alan Scot is the worst green lantern because he lacks any real combat ability prior to taking the mantel . Hawkeye has proved himself to be a formidable foe to anyone he fights. Same with Batman, Nightwing, Mockingbird and many others in comics that lack super powers.
