When you're on a team alongside the likes of Captain America, Iron Man, Thor and the Incredible Hulk, it's easy to be overshadowed, or even dismissed outright (Cookie Monster got in on that action just this week). But Hawkeye wants us to know he's just as super as the rest of the Avengers.
Appearing last night on NBC's The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, a costumed Jeremy Renner sat down at the piano to belt out a heartfelt, and hilarious, ode to Hawkeye's many lesser-known superpowers (to the tune of Ed Sheerhan's "Thinking Out Loud").
It turns out Clint Barton has an enviable collection of scarves and berets, and he kicks ass at Mario Kart. So cut him some slack, everybody -- especially you, Cookie Monster.
When you’re on a team with the Hulk and ThorAnd we’re all up there on the movie screen,Will the people believe that I’m not quite as tough?Will anyone even notice me?
But listen I’ve got powers too, they’re pretty sweet.I promise I can do so much more than just archery.
I’m serious guys.I’ve got a collection of scarves and berets.I play trombone in a ska band.I once got to second base on my Tinder date.And my cat has got its own Instagram.
I tell you nowI kick ass at Mario Kart.This year I played an extra in Paul Blart.I can open a pickle jar.I’m friggin’ Hawkeye.Maybe I’m as super as they are.
So maybe I still haven’t lost my virginity.But when I bowl I always score at least 70, after six beers
Yes I know 'bout Captain America’s strength.Hulk becomes a towering man.But I got seventh place in my fantasy league.And I once butt-dialed Jean-Claude Van Damme.
When I go to Chipotle I get free guac.I flirt with the cashier and she says I rock.I own water-resistant socks.I’m friggin’ Hawkeye.Maybe I'm as super as they are.
Maybe I'm as super as they are.Maybe I'm as super as they are.
