Clint Barton/Hawkeye has remained a mainstay of the Marvel Cinematic Universe since he made his first appearance in Thor. Although Hawkeye doesn't have any special powers, he's become something of a fan-favorite character over the years, with Avengers: Endgame focusing on him following the death of his family.
