I think he is very complex character. And a very cool one at that. Yet he doesn't have the fame someone like Green Arrow does.?????????????????????

I'm pretty sure Hawkeye is more popular than Green Arrow. Even before I got into comics  I knew who Hawkeye was.

A lot of people like Hawkeye.

I like both Green Arrow and Hawkeye!
 
I think people don't like Clint because he's been romantically involved with a lot of the Avengers women and people might not appreciate that... Wasp, Scarlet Witch, Mocking Bird all come to mind....erm... i think...

I think plenty of people like Hawkeye he's just an underused character in the Marvel Universe.Because so much of his character is based on his bow he rarely does anything noteworthy.I like him as a character though.

Hawkeye's my fave Marvel character after Moon Knight. He has a great down-to-Earth appeal to him most Marvel heroes lack. I think there's a couple obstacles he's had... Clint is OK as leader of the WCAs or Thunderbolts but slides too easily into a follower role among A list heroes. And he's never really established himself solo. He's had a few minis and that one series that ended too early before that slug Bendis gave him one of the stupidest deaths in the history of comics. His counterpart Green Arrow has been given lengthy ongoings and positioned as a top tier hero.

IMO I feel he is over rated it's not that i don't like Clint he us just a Green Arrow/Wolverine  Mix and I feel there is not much originality to him. He is ok at best. I do like him as apart of he Avengers he should not be a leader well maybe he could lead a team like X-Force like Logan is thats about it.

Why is his color scheme PURPLE?! I say, its not quite manly on him.

#10 Posted by Danial79 (2351 posts) - - Show Bio

I love Hawkeye! Even with his purple costume :)

He's cool but I wouldn't say he's more popular than Green Arrow.

Maybe nowadays with all the Justice league shows and all, but back when I was growing up, nobody who wasn't a comic fan knew who GA was; however, thanks to the Avenger's video games and the Iron Man cartoon, a lot of people knew who Hawkeye was. Marvel was a lot more popular back then as well.

Clint's cool in my book; I'm not a huge Hawkeye fan though

He could have chosen a better color for his costume but still... Not so bad.

Hawkeye is cool and a lot of people like him.  He's just not a cool as Green Arrow.  Never will be.

Never been a fan of his look in general. Between the two I think Green Arrow is much better.

I don't know the character very well, but I like him.  I wasn't aware that there was a lot of hate against him.

I only liked hawkeye because hes in the avengers but the same wtih green arrow....HMM

Always liked Hawkeye, one of my favorite Avengers line up was, 
Cap 
Hawk  
Scarlet Witch 
Quicksilver 
I liked how Marvel had this SUPER Super Group with Thor, IM, Hulk, Pym and Wasp and just turned it into this weird little squad of 2 guys with these Circus skills and 2 former bad guys.

@PowerHerc:
Why? I don't understand why Green Arrow is so popular... Could you elaborate why GA is cooler?
#44 Posted by nightwing91 (3912 posts) - - Show Bio
@Hawkeye446: More character development, and he's more well known character now because of the JLU, Batman the brave and the bold, and Smallville featuring him quite prominently.  And Green arrow is popular because he has his whole family, his own city, and he's had 3 or 4 solo series now. 
 
But I don't hate Purple arrow.

@nightwing91: I can't stand Green Arrow. I really do think he is overrated.

Sorry, but that's some weird reasoning. So how good a character is depends how powerful he is? Then Joker, Hamlet, Rambo, Indiana Jones, John McClane, Captain Picard, Captain Ahab, Han Solo, Snake Plisskin, Garret (from Thief), Aragorn, Punisher, Conan the Barbarian etc., must all be terrible characters, because "90% of Marvel characters will take (them) down easily".

it depends on the universe in which the characters live. Most of those you mentioned are the best in theirs, but Hawkeye is a worthless bug in his universe.
