Clint Barton is unable to hear the sounds that the destruction causes.


Clint Barton's heard of hearing marks a change from past representations of disability, or lack thereof in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Through the "Hawkeye" mini-series, Marvel explains how Barton lost his hearing through numerous explosions and details the relationship between Kate Bishop and Clint Barton, who will eventually pass the torch to her as she inherits the Hawkeye identity.
