Considering the uproar on social media, following the reports of Barney Barron’s potential appearance in Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye season 2, we’ve brought all available information on the character. According to Marvel Comics Barney is Clint’s older brother who initially taught Hawkeye combat skills and helped him to improve his aim.

The two brothers were orphaned at a young age after their parents Harold and Edith Barton died in a car crash. Placed in numerous foster homes, Clint and Barney eventually ran away and came across one of the star performers, Jacques DuQuesne also known as the Swordsman, after they took up odd jobs at the Carson Carnival of Traveling Wonder as roustabouts.

While Clint became devoted to the Swordsman and his fellow performer Trickshot, who taught him archery, Barney focused on his education after being overlooked by his idol, Swordsman. Thereafter, Clint got obsessed with archery and Barney went on to join the FBI. Thereafter, the two brothers went separate ways. However, later on, Clint and Barney collide after Barney is shot with an arrow by his brother, during an assignment.


After Barney survived, he went to seek out his brother who had become a part of the Avengers by then. Offered with another assignment concerning Egghead, Barney teamed up with Hawkeye and the Avengers, which led him to sacrifice his life to destroy Egghead’s mission of using a paralysis ray on the Avengers. However, later Barney’s body was taken by Egghead who resurrected him and manipulated him against his brother, leading to bloody battles between them.
