Like the Hufflepuffs before him, there's a popular consensus that Hawkeye is the lamest Avenger. Well, we're here to tell you that simply isn't true. Being called a Hawkeye is a total compliment.
Hawkeye may not have an indestructible suit of armor like Iron Man, or the physical abilities of super-soldier Captain America. And he's definitely not an all-powerful demigod like Thor, nor does he turn into an insuppressible mass of green fury like Bruce Banner. And there's no way in the galaxy he's as badass as Natasha Romanoff. But he's still an irreplaceable part of the team! (We promise.)
In fact, it's pretty cool that a sharpshooter like Clint Barton can hang with a group of superheroes and still manage, for the most part, to keep up and, in some cases, stand out. So being the Hawkeye of your friend group is nothing to scoff at.
You're the level-headed one.
In a group of strong personalities, it's natural to feel like you have to put on a front to fit in. You probably put on a cocky act in front of your super cool friends, but in reality, you're actually quite level-headed -- and totally aware of your limits -- which makes you a vital member of the group.
You have a pretty good sense of humor.
Your friends may not always acknowledge your jokes in the moment, but they're definitely laughing on the inside.
You have amazing eyesight.Marvel Studios
While all your friends have to torture their eyes and live in constant fear of a late delivery from 1-800 Contacts, you're seeing 20/20.
You don't let your own limitations hold you back.Marvel Studios
Sure, you may not be as fast as your friends or as strong as your friends or even as good-looking as your friends, but you know you're still awesome.
They mistake your greatness for cockiness.Marvel Studios
Some people think you're cocky -- and maybe you do put on an air of overconfidence -- but you know your s--t doesn't stink. And if other people don't believe it, just feel sorry for their ignorance.
You can disappear for hours at a time and no one will notice.
...Which is actually kind of awesome when you think about it. You can be ANYWHERE at ANYTIME and no one will ever feel the need to check in on you and be all up in your business. You live in a world of anonymity. Popular kids DREAM of having that kind of power.
No one ever comments on your Insta.Marvel Comics
Who cares! You're way too busy living life (and watching Netflix) to take selfies.
You're the last person invited to everything.
But you're still invited, so there's really nothing to complain about.
You feed pizza to your dog.Marvel Comics
Because your dog is your best friend and he's FREAKIN' awesome.
People don't always understand your sarcasm.
Sarcasm is a true skill, and those who don't understand it are simply unworthy of your brilliance.
You have a lot of haters.
LOL. They hate you 'cause they ain't you. Be like T.Swift and just shake it off.
