I really did not know that...

Weird...I read somewhere that apparently Hawkeye is deaf and does in fact use hearing aids. Is this true? If so, I really did not know this.

Sorry if this has already been answered...

Yes he did lose his hearing at one point. It was his first solo adventure and he worked for Cross Technologies as Chief of Security.

You then find out that his boss was the villain named Crossfire using his company as a front to fund his work on mind manipulation technology. Hawkeye met Mockingbird who was trying to tell Hawkeye this ended up getting both of them captured. Hawkeye then finds out his Girlfriend at the time was actually paid to sleep with him and to keep him unaware about what was the companies true motives. After they escaped Hawkeye didn't sleep the whole night fell asleep under a elevated train track, where a bunch of thugs decided to kick him thus waking him and proceeded to kick ass. After Mockingbird finding him she took him to her apartment. Where an assassin named Sliencer hired by Crossfire to take both of them out made his first attempt and got away not without taking some hits.

Later Mockingbird fixes Hawkeye's costume and they go hunting for clues on who is the head man behind the operations. Little did they know Crossfire also hired a more assassins to take them out known as the Death Throws.(Which in H&M he named his robotic droids.) There they placed a bomb in Mockingbirds apartment waiting for them to come back and trigger the bomb. But to their surprise the bomb detonated but not when it was pose to . Hawkeye and Mockingbird lived and continued on the hunt for answers. They end up sneaking back into Cross Technologies and finding some files about a project at that point they get ambushed by Silencer. The fight moves on Hawkeye's skycycle and Hawkeye pulls Silencer into the smoke stack.

Later in the subway back they encounter the Death Throws and are led into a trap where they get captured. There Cossfire introduces himself to both heroes and tells them that they will be test subjects for his mind control device and after they will plant the body in the park and as the heroes have a funeral for Hawkeye he would use the weapon again on all the heroes making them kill each other. Hawkeye and Mockingbird are then subjected to the weapon but after the first round when they snap out of the trance Hawkeye uses his sonic arrow tip and cracks it in his mouth plus with the mind control pulses cause Hawkeye to go deaf in one ear and partial in the other. After he fakes being knocked out. Bombshell and OddBall come in to grab the bodies , there Hawkeye makes his move and defeats Crossfire.

And that is How he lost his hearing. He gained it back when he was brought back to life after House of M.

Actually, unless I'm mistaken, it was when Franklin Richards brought them all back after Heroes Reborn.
