Name:Clint Barton
Clint Barton is a man in his early forties (make him grin and ten years will drop off), of average height, with an impressive set of shoulders/arms. He's also a superhero. Kind of. Mostly he sticks with his day job, which is as a field agent and specialist (sniper, if you were wondering) with an international peacekeeping organization that has ambitions to be MIB. Most people know it as SHIELD.

He's a really normal guy, which some people seem to find kind of weird.

(If you know comics 'verse, any comics 'verse [including the film-adjacent Fury's Big Week], to clarify: Clint's only canon comes from the movies pre-Avengers 2 -- I've stolen parts of his background, but twisted them to fit what makes sense to me with his portrayal in Thor and Avengers.

I'm very fond of Clint's Avengers II portrayal, and I'd be happy to sandbox that Clint with anyone! It just clashes pretty heavily with what I've established in Milliways :))

Clint Barton/Hawkeye is from The Avengers Marvel Movie Universe, and is the property of Marvel Studios/Disney/etc. He appears here solely for the purpose of role-playing in [community profile] milliways_bar, from which no profit whatsoever is being made.

Regarding hearing loss: Clint has a hearing impairment of 79 dB (which is to say, he needs things to be 79 dB louder than most people to hear them at the same range without hearing aids -- so, for instance, a shout in his ear would roughly register as a whisper). This is usually too intense of hearing loss to use inner-ear hearing aids; however, science fiction universe while working for super secret science people. His non-combat hearing aids are visible, and helpfully non specified in type because I'd rather give myself less room to mess up :). Feel free to poke me if I do, though!

He cannot lip-read in any encompassing manner, but he has picked up some supplemental lip-reading, so if your character has a strong non-American accent, he'll probably be watching their lips a fair amount, and may ask clarifying questions. He tries not to give away what and when he can't understand, though, and to interpolate from data he does catch.

Note: There're also threads in here from mixed-muses and panfandom sandbox. They are noted as such, and they and anything in them are not applicable to the continuity of Milliways Bar
