Other versions[edit]

Golden Archer[edit]

At one point, the Golden Archer used the codename of Hawkeye.[10]

Marvel 2099[edit]

There have been two versions of Hawkeye in Marvel 2099:


During the "Secret Wars" storyline, the Battleworld domain of 2099 had its version of Hawkeye who is a member of the Avengers 2099. This version is Max who is an archer that was spliced with the DNA of hawk giving him the wings and talons of a hawk.[11]

An unidentified 2099 reality's version of Hawkeye fought the Anti-Vigilante Act alongside his fellow vigilantes. Like the Battleworld version, he has the wings of a hawk.[12]

An unidentified 2099 reality's version of Hawkeye was briefly displaced on Earth where he helped the displaced version of Spider-Man 2099 fight the Fist. Unlike the Battleworld version, this version does not appear to be a human/hawk hybrid.[13]

Unnamed assassin[edit]

On the unified Marvel 2099 reality of Earth-2099, an unnamed person operated as an assassin named Hawkeye.[14]

Onslaught Reborn[edit]

During the "Onslaught Reborn" limited series, a pocket dimension created by Franklin Richards had one of its inhabitants being a version of Wolverine who operated as Hawkeye.[15]
