The best archer in the marvel universe.The Hawkeye or Clint Barton started his hero career as a villain who was sent to attack the avengers.

After losing their parents at a very young age.Clint and his brother were stuck in an orphanage but ran off to join the Carson Carnival of Traveling Wonders, where he was fostered by a swordsman who taught him to become an expert archer with the help of Trick shot.

During that time, Clint also learned to become a proficient acrobat too, a skill he later used in his superhero activities as Hawkeye.

The friendship with the swordsman deteriorated after he caught him embezzling from the company. After being beaten and left for dead, he recovered to later witness The Iron Man in action, which inspired him to don the superhero costume and pattern his own life for good.

And, while Hawkeye has a keen eyesight, he is 80% deaf and uses hearing aids specially created by billionaire Tony Stark.

  • Trained at young age
  • Keen eyesight
  • Trained hand to hand combat by captain america
  • Less dependent on trick arrows
  • Can fire 9 arrows at once and hit all targets
  • Skilled Tactician

  • Deaf
  • Orphan
  • Was a villain
  • Sometimes a brash
  • Arrogant




Hawkeye started off as a villain and then into a vigilante until he became the hero he is now. That is what makes him cool.

plus: He is engaged with Romanoff.

I prefer Hankeye sorry

he is more experienced tham Green Arrow, ok Green Arrow have more cool things, but in matters of training Hankeye is more stronger.

he's one of favorite character in avengers movies. He's so cool even without powers like other heroes. Purely skilled

Im not a fan of hawkeye neither green arrow

They are both skilled in their weapons and both has different arrows to be used in every situations. But I think hawk eye is better because he has an arrow that can make his target small or big.

Hawkeye is better !

I am not a big fan of DC so don't know much about this Green Arrow. However, I know about Hawakey, because I am a fan of MARVEL. Mainly IronMan. :D I think Hawkey is better then any other archer. He is not only an archer but also an agent. He always do his best to prove himself in AVENGERS team. I believe that he can target anything and also I like his action though he don't have much action scene. I hope he will get bit more action scene in Avengers Infinity War I & II.
Posted by NomanProdhan on 04-10-2017


Yes I agree he is the best and not just for fast moving but the skills he as learned of the years. I do also think archery skills are brilliant and like how he moves in movement even if he was a villain he has proved himself like Noman said so he deserves it.

Gotta go with Hawkeye

I guess I'll just start with the big guns. Green Arrow started as a low rent replacement for Batman whenever writers for team books like Justice League were unable to call upon the Dark Knight. At least Hawkeye came onto the Avengers to fill a slot left by the likes of Thor, Iron Man, The Wasp, and Giant Man and brought a unique skillset to that team. Hawkeye became the Avengers' conscience, its heart.

Cause i'm Loyal to Marvel

Without further ado, i chose Hawk eye because he is not that corny to look at and he is also, an awesome avenger.
Posted by Rhomhie Morelh Campo on 05-18-2017

More efficient

Hawkeye is my choice because he is cooler, smarter and has more features and abilities to face the enemies (in a war this is very important). In addition, he is part of the Avengers (and that's a great boost, isn't it?).
Posted by WildSpirit on 06-07-2017


Im more familiar with hawkeye because i grew up watching cartoons of him.
Posted by Neiltarquin on 06-25-2017

Hawkeye for the win!

I honestly prefer his more genuine and human approach. The Green Arrow just seems to be this bland, two dimensional dude with a cringeworthy outfit. But hey, if you like him, there's nothing wrong with that.

But I agree with what some people say about Hawkeye just being a more down to earth dude. And the actor who plays him in the Avengers movies is sexy :P

Posted by SashaS on 06-25-2017


I like Hawkeye better because his back story is more compelling to me. Green Arrow is just another "my super power is I'm rich" character, which really seemed like a cop out to me. Hawkeye had to train and deal with real life as he honed his skills. Furthermore his arsenal is far more interesting. I also like that his character is designed more around military themes rather than the call back to Robin Hood that Green Arrow uses. I understand and respect the legacy of comic book characters, but classic design is really a turn off for me. They were too campy.
Posted by JaiGuru on 07-18-2017


Hawkeye is an amazing fighter, and bringing up his time as Ronin is a valid point. Green Arrow is also as accomplished as acrobat himself. I don't think that there would be a significant advantage either way here. In terms of archery skills, it's a coin flip match up since they are both really accurate. Movie Hawkeye vs Arrow is harder to call. Arrow wins on close combat definitely, but Hawkeye trumps at range.
Posted by airfightermax on 07-11-2017

I prefer Hankeye

More skill, more agility, is more stronger tham Green Arrow, ok he was a villain, but matter of strength he is more capable.
Posted by Deathisue on 07-13-2017


Hawkeye is a great character for me and since I'm a fan of the avengers and the marvel world I would have to go with him. Also in the movies he is a little oldie but sexy hahaha. He is not some spoiled brat born rich as green arrow and he has win his spot in the top with other great superheroes not for having money but for his great skills!
Posted by Pink_Turtle on 08-23-2017

Hawkeye all the way!

I'm a Marvel kind of guy and besides Hawkeye has tons of skill set, he has defeated foes who are bigger, stronger, and faster than him. Clint always finds ways to make it at the top of every obstacle he faces.
Posted by MichaelSoriano15 on 08-16-2017

Jeremy Renner!

I love how he portray his character in The Avengers, and compared to green arrow, he's more experienced.
Posted by Vastor122 on 08-31-2017

I Prefer This Design

I like Hawkeye more and never really gravitated towards Green Arrow at all, even when he would pop up in some of the superhero cartoon movies I used to watch, it never really made me feel much one way or the other. I can't say I really like Hawkeye all that much either, but I definitely prefer him over Green Arrow, even just in design alone, because honestly I never really knew much about his personality anyway. I did like playing him in my Marvel video games though, and that's more than I can say for his DC counterpart.
Posted by Wubwub on 09-16-2017

Marvel Fan Here

This is obviously biased opinion. I am a big Marvel fan so I will definitely choose Hawkeye! Clinton Francis Barton was a villain at first but he found his purpose with the Avengers. His story has a redeeming value in some sort of ways ha ha ha! I personally believe that he being an orphan is not a weakness or burden, in fact he has a very interesting story from childhood up to the time he was recruited to become an Avenger.
Posted by MushyPhilip1822 on 08-27-2017


I have a simple reason for choosing Hawkeye over Green Arrow. I am a die hard fan of Marvel Comics. For me any Marvel super hero is always better than all of DC's heroes. Sorry DC fans.
Posted by johnrajiv123 on 09-21-2017

Fan of Marvel here!

I prefer Hawkeye since I've been watching Avengers movie franchise. I find this character cool and lots of skills despite not having a power. I've never watched green arrow before so I have no Idea how cool he is. What I only know about him is he's like Batman who's a billionaire and that's it.

Green Arrow

Green Arrow
The best archer in the DC universe.

Unlike Hawkeye who was trained at a young age to use archery, the Green Arrow only acquired his skills due to misfortune and in a desperate bid for survival.

One night while on his yacht, the rich Oliver McQueen fell overboard and became stranded on Star Fish Island for many months, where he was forced to hunt small animals with a makeshift bow to survive. He used local plants on the island to create a camouflage outfit for himself to avoid detection by prey. After his rescue from the island, he maintained a similar look for his Green Arrow outfit.

In addition to his crime fighting activities, The Green Arrow is also an accomplished Olympic level gymnast and world class martial artist, who loves cooking in his spare time. Among his other special gifts is a amazingly high pain tolerance level which he acquired after training with League of Assassins.

  • A billionaire
  • Has his own hideout "The Arrow Cave"
  • Able to fire 29 arrows, accurately, in a single minute
  • Expert in using firearms,sword and stick
  • Uses a variety of bows including composite and longbows
  • Green Arrow's Chili,one of hottest food on the planet
  • Expert in martial arts,was also trained by from Natas, the same person who trained Deathstroke

  • Trained when he was an adult
  • More dependent on trick arrows
  • Alcoholic
  • Billionaire play boy



Green Arrow

I prefer Green Arrow. He's kind of an Iconic superhero that is among the ranks of Batman and Super Man. Not only am I siding with him because I am Pro DC, but I was always intrigued with the gadgets in his arrows. It was always like a "what kind of arrow is going to get him out of this mess" kind of thing. Along with his familiarity and TV show that further promotes his character and gives you a different viewpoint of the character. I just feel there are more details and emotions surrounding Green Arrow that make him more relatable.

Green Arrow

Really the only reason is hawk eye is part of the avengers. He is surrounded by people with amazing powers and abilities. The hulk, vision, scarlet witch etc. He has a bow and arrow. He seems obsolete as a hero. But green arrow is not part of a team like the avengers. Yeah superman and wonder woman are there but there is a little more room for people without powers. Like batman.
Posted by Art Over Homework on 05-17-2017

He's just better

This is one of the coolest superhero cartoons I've ever seen it's the best one ever I just love watching all the episodes my favorite
Posted by Anonymous on 05-21-2017

Go for Green Arrow

These two superheroes are too similar to each other. They don't have any supernatural abilities but they do have extraordinarily skills. Though I love the Marvel a universe much more than the DC universe, I would still pick Green Arrow over Hawkeye any day. Green Arrow is much cooler, has a better story, and has a better outfit than Hawkeye. Also, he's friends with The Flash, also one of my favorites.
Posted by limberg on 07-23-2017


Green Arrow all the way. He is far more legendary and iconic compared to Hawkeye. I think that everybody knows Green Arrow by now... if not from the comics then from the TV series. He's extremely popular for a reason!

Oliver Queen, also known as Green Arrow is just sort of the perfect superhero and guy. He's good looking, can shoot arrows from almost anywhere, never misses, is athletic, can do martial art, does tricks and EVEN cooks? What more could you want?

He also grows as a character and keeps developing. I love him.

Posted by Mehano on 08-07-2017


Well I like archers, so both of them are kind of good, but I'll have to go with Green Arrow on this one simply because he have more different personalities in different medias. Hawkeye is not that popular - or at least not enough for me to know him well - while Green Arrow is pretty popular in comics and expecially in the recent TV series Arrow, and in both version he's very different but still good. Lighthearted or dark, I like him more than Hawkeye.
Posted by Xilkozuf on 09-10-2017

Green Arrow:-)

Even if Green Arrow used to be a playboy billionaire later he suffered and Went through a lot he learnt a lot about life and became a responsible person very caring guy Who cared alot about his friends and Who was ready to give his life to protect His sister :-) very serious and most of all he was a patriote who could sell hisself to the devil for the safety of his city :-) So Green Arrow is the best for sure :-)
Posted by Clara1993 on 07-22-2017

Look up Hawkeye and Green Arrows Super Power Beatd

In that episode, it was a close call but Hawkeye lost because we was too arrogant and Green Arrow was a better shot. But, even reading both comics, Green Arrow still has an edge on Hawkeye. Yeah, Hawkeye was trained in archery at a young age. Yes, he learned how to do accurate, trick shots with his arrows. However, there is a big difference in between learning how to do trick shots as a child and learning to survive with a bow and arrow, disguise and hide from prey and live on an island for 5 years. Learning how to be accurate with a bow and arrow, all while trying to survive an island, for 5 long years, gives the Green Arrow the upper hand over Hawkeye.
Posted by terryfree80 on 06-03-2017

Green Arrow All the Way

Let's be honest, the only reason people go with Hawkeye is that he was in the Avengers. Green Arrow has had some exposure with his TV show but I think he is way better than Hawkeye in most aspects. Sure, Hawkeye was a great circus archer, but Oliver Queen was literally stranded on an island and had to learn archery from no training and mastered it completely. Green Arrow is also really funny in the comics and he and Batman were one of the only superheroes brave enough fight against Superman in the comics to do what they believed in.
Posted by lexcion on 06-04-2017

My name is Oliver Queen.

I prefer Green Arrow than Hawkeye. There both skilled in bow and arrow, but I think Green Arrow have the advantage, after watching the Green Arrow TV series and seeing Hawkeye in Avenger movies, Green Arrow is definitely better in all aspects.
Posted by BeardedMamba on 07-04-2017

Green Arrow

I'm sorry but Hawkeye has always been a throwaway character for me in the Avengers. While Green Arrow is a valued member of the League. In the storytelling, Green Arrow comes off as more useful and his character has depth. He goes from being a rich jerk to less of a jerk, has a troubled family, gets married and even becomes a socialist in the distant future. The fact that he is in DC helps a lot. Being a detective and skilled means a lot more there. While in Marvel the best characters are blessed/cursed with great power. Plus Hawkeye just comes off as a jerk, Green Arrow is a loveable jerk lol
Posted by mattmattics on 06-05-2017

Way better!

Also, between Marvel and DC there have been a lot of "ripoff" characters and I think the Green Arrow comes first. the descriptions also seem to be more in line with their onscreen depictions except for the mention of "trick arrows" and the onscreen version of green arrow uses none while Hawkeye dose.

Overall I prefer the Dark brooding heroes and Green Arrow fits that role better than Hawkeye. I also feel like green arrow has a better back story than hawkeye so Green Arrow is my choice 100%!

Posted by thedadinomicon on 06-06-2017

Green Arrow - Oliver Queen

First of all, i am fan of DC comics, rather than Marvel, I might be biased, even so I think that Green Arrow is the better hero.

Archer, famous for his knuckle arrow, wearing green. A billionaire who uses his gold to help people. Trained on an island after a shipwreck. What more can you ask for?

Posted by Nemanja on 06-07-2017

I vote on Green Arrow

Particularly I'm a fan of the DC characters and the Green Arrow is one of my favorite superheroes. I certainly prefer the Green Arrow, I like his story, how Oliver Queen became the archer, and his skills that go beyond the bow and arrow.
Posted by Cauohashi on 06-11-2017


Green Arrow is a lot better than Hawkeye because it has better development and it's a very important character in the league, it has cool villains and the outfit is cooler.

Posted by luispas on 06-21-2017

Green Arrow!

Oliver is a rich and well-developed hero that took "Archer" to a whole different level, despite being surrounded by superpowered beings.

I admit, I've always been more of a DC girl, but I truly think Oliver/Green Arrow is simply one of the best heroes DC has ever created. I like everything about him, and I specially loved his deeply flawed interactions with (His adopted son? Sidekick? Whatever they are now in The New 52?) Roy Harper and, of course, his eternal romance with my personal favorite Dinah Lance.

He is more than his gadgets, arrows and riches. He's a capable long-distance shooter and also an expert at close-combat (having Dinah as a partner sure can teach him a thing or two!) and is just such a well-rounded, deep character with pronounced flaws that resemble those of an anti-hero, but that eventually make way to his truly heroic qualities.

Posted by VintageRose on 06-21-2017

The Green Arrow

This is one of the DC's better heroes, and not just because he is a prolific archer, no, he is one of the best because he is an human and he is the best person to call when Batman and Superman are wrong, he is the most human in the Justice League, and it is because he can see the good in the other people, while Batman just can be arrogant or the Green Lanterns are with other aliens, Green Arrow is the one who can believe in the people and make them change for good.
Posted by BatmanWayne on 06-24-2017

Green is the color

I prefer green arrow anyday, he actually is a more accomplied archer and can be compared in the level of batman. He has seen it all from surviving 5 years on an island alone to being train by the league of assasins. I think he is also better skilled with the arrow that purple man over there.
Posted by zeedollar on 07-07-2017


Despite Green Arrow not having a superpower like how the top heroes recognized by people, I like how he is appreciated for his skills and hardwork too, much like how Batman is so intelligent and cunning. I love the Marvel universe but I would prefer Green Arrow over Hawkeye anytime.
Posted by giovanniiiii on 08-09-2017

Green Arrow is the man

I believe Green Arrow is the better archer. He has gone through League of Assasin training and challenged Ra's Al Ghul. He's more of a standalone hero who can rival Batman. Hawkeye is more similar to that of a supporting hero. This is the reason why the Green Arrow stands out for me as he can be a great leader as well.
Posted by fishmonk on 08-03-2017

Green Arrow for sure

The best time to learn is when you are actually down in tough situation and that’s what actually happens to Green Arrow. With this, he was able to learn all that it takes to survive and I can say this is what really built him – I love the entire story. I don’t want to hear that he’s more dependent on tricks, when attacking an enemy, you also need simple tactics to conquer not just your ability. Green Arrow is very good in both. I’m not siding the Green arrow because I’m a raving fan of DC, I just love every of his style.
Posted by Gettingmile on 08-07-2017

The green guy.

The two characters are cool (at the same time a little annoying sometimes), but I choose the Green Arrow because I think his story is more interesting and more real. When the story is closer to reality, it makes me more interested.
Posted by wiseagent on 09-30-2017

5 years on hell

Arrow, in general, is better than Hawkeye in every possible way there is. First Arrow got his training from nature and the greatest fighters in DC like Rayshal-Ghul and Slade Wilson alike. Where as Hawkeye could never become something like him because he is surrounded by guys like THOR and Captain America which makes him feel cheap all the time.
Posted by muaaz.93 on 08-15-2017

The Green Arrow

He is the best for me. He has money, he is smarter than Hawkeye, he can work alone. Also, using his own money, he can create new weapons or update them and Hawkeye depends on Tony Stark or SHIELD agency.
Posted by cubo on 08-19-2017

Green Arrow

I think Green Arrow is more iconic, but that's not why I'm voting for him. It's just that I like his personality and his story. Also I like his supporting characters more than those of Hawkeye. I prefer Green Arrow comics, actually I tend to prefer DC comics in general.
Posted by Dkaraly on 08-18-2017

Green Arrow FTW

I have always liked Green Arrow. He is fun, sarcastic and has cool powers. Also, he is a member of Justice League. Most importantly he can stand on its own as a superhero. Hawkeye, on the other hand, seems like he cannot function on its own.
Posted by Vatroslav on 08-17-2017

Green Arrow is my hero!

Green arrow is better than Hawkeye in many aspects. First is the mystery. Green arrow is way cooler than Hawkeye because he hides from the shadows make him hard to find. Next is the hideout. Green arrow hideout is amazing because it consist of many different gadgets that help him to fight villains and to protect his hideout. Then the costume, I like how Green arrow present his costume and also suits in his name as there are "Green" in his name. Lastly, is Green arrow motorcycle that he is almost like Batman. For a superhero, I think it's cool to have a own vehicle.

People rate Hawkeye over green arrow because he's marvel.. Wow, to me green arrow is more badass , and he taught himself the hard way to be a skill archer ..Green arrow all the way.

Green arrow stand out from the archery competition, from the costume (who wears a purple costume), to fist fight, to resourcefulness green boy takes the day. Not everybody goes through the league of assasin training and walk a free man plus he has got all the money to throw around when he is not putting on the suit.

Posted by vinaya on 08-16-2017
These two are the nerdiest tool ever created as heroes. Why come up with such characters that ordinary person can do. They are just sidekicks at best and yes, even heroe's sidekicks are much powerful than them what a shock. I'm not hating them too much, but the creators of these two should at least made an effort adding up a mysterious power with them so that they could kick villain's ass even more. At least Batman on the other is much way cooler than these two blokes and Batman doesn't have any powers as well. Time to kill these heroes once and for all, create an intense battle for them so that they can die the sooner the better let's go.

Hawkeye, no contest. Green Arrow is good but is humanly skilled, Hawkeye has supernatural marksmanship. Put Hawkeye on the same island that Green Arrow was lost on, and Hawkeye will shot a bird across the island through the head.

Green Arrow is one of kind just like Rambo who has a high tolerance for pain. His skills in fighting is reasonable with his true-to-life involvement in sports particularly martial arts. And his marksmanship with the arrows is also reasonable because of his natural talents for sports and fighting. What more is there to say? He is a very wealthy man and he is sacrificing his time to fight crime. What an admirable super hero.
