Clinton Barton was born on January 7, 1971, and spent much of his childhood in Waverly, Iowa. As he matured he developed an exceptional marksmanship skill and used it to great effect in SHIELD, in which Clint Barton got the code name Hawkeye. In one of his missions, he'd thwarted an assassination attempt on his life by an mercenary Marcus Scarlotti. Around the time he'd joined SHIELD, Clint met then formed his romantic relationship with a woman named Laura, whom he married. Of the SHIELD associates, a select few knew about his marriage, and Director Nick Fury had-excluded Clint's bride Laura Barton and children from SHIELD files so to protect them from any potential threats.
Later, he was tasked to carry out the assassination of a young Russian agent codenamed "Black Widow". However, instead of killing her, he opted to let her live, and discovered her true name, Natasha Romanoff. The relationship between the two developed a lasting partnership that continued through bringing her in to work for S.H.I.E.L.D. Together they had missions in Budapest, Abidjan and many other locations. The pair became so close that Romanoff was the only other agent Barton told about his family.
