Abused child, orphaned at an early age, ran away to join the cirus, decided to be a hero and accidentally became a criminal; sounds like a normal origin story for a hero, right?

Okay, maybe it isn't, but it's Clint's life. The people who should have cared about him didn’t, and the people he cared about had a nasty habit of screwing him over. That part's improved a lot since he first appeared, but there's still the occasional problem on that front. Clint’s the one who tries. It doesn't always work out very well, and he gets kicked when he's down a lot, but he always tries, no matter what.

Like O 1
I was eight, I was sure I was growing pains
Like lead in my feet
SOS to my mother
Take the hinges off the door
SOS to my mother
Take the hinges off the door
Like O 2
Trust Me 102. The Fray – Trust Me
I found a friend, or should I say foe?
Said there’s a few things you should know
We don’t want you to see We come and we go
Here today, gone tomorrow We’re only taking turns Holding this world It’s how it’s always been
When you’re older you will understand
Trust Me 2
Name 103. Goo Goo Dolls – Name
Now we’re grown up orphans that never knew their names
We don’t belong to no one That’s a shame
Scars are souvenirs you never lose, the past is never far
And did you lose yourself somewhere out there?
Did you get to be a star?
Name 2
Save Yourself 104. My Chemical Romance – Save Yourself, I’ll Hold Them Back (Avengers Disassembled)
I’ll tell you how the story ends
Where the good guys die and the bad guys win
It ain’t about all the friends you made
But the graffiti they write on your grave
Save Yourself 2
Between Two Lungs 105. Florence and the Machine – Between Two Lungs
And my running feet could fly
Each breath screaming “We are all too young to die!”
Between Two Lungs 2
Bullet in My Hand 106. Redlight King – Bullet In My Hand (House of M)
I came out of the darkness
With a bullet in my hand
I got one more shot at living I’m lucky that I can
‘Cause I got a little roughed up
Yeah I really got fucked up
Bullet in My Hand 2
Adventures in Solitude 107. The New Pornographers – Adventures in Solitude (aftermath of Civil War) Balancing on
One wounded wing
Circling the edge
Of the neverending
The best of the vanished marvels have gathered inside your door
Less than forget
But more than begun
These adventures in solitude are never done
To the names of our wounds

We send the same blood back from the wars
Adventures in Solitude 2
Young Blood 108. The Naked and Famous – Young Blood The bittersweet between my teeth
Trying to find the in-betweens
Fall back in love eventually Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
As it withers
Brittle it shakes
Can you whisper?
As it crumbles and breaks As you shiver
Count up all your mistakes
Young Blood 2
Shining Stars 109. fun. – Carry On
You swore and said
We are not
We are not shining stars
This I know
I never said we are
And it’s nice to know
When I was left for dead
I was found and now I don’t roam these streets
I am not the ghost you want of me
Shining Stars 2
Iridescent 110. Linkin Park – Iridescent
Do you feel cold and lost in desperation?
You build up hope but failure’s all you’ve known Remember all the sadness and frustration
And let it go, let it go
Iridescent 2
