Powers: Clint is at peak athletic physiology; Olympic athletes would kill to have the skill he possess. His ability gives his brain an advanced understanding of trigonometry in practice (i.e. Do NOT play a game of pool with him). As well as allowing his mind to work at, essentially, a higher functioning level of activity, Clint's mind calculates factors such as trajectory, distances, probabilities, and mathematical formulas involving everything from resistance to velocities. All of this will occur in a split second on a subconscious level. His ability to perform instantaneous calculations provides him a strong upper hand, so when he takes aim it’s almost always a bullseye.


Born into a relatively poor family in Waverly, Iowa on January 11th, Clint is the eldest of Harold and Edith Barton. He and his younger brother, Bernie, were raised on their family's farm and expected to help out. At a young age, both of the boys were pulled out of public schooling by their father in favor of being home-schooled. He believed it would be more cost effective.

Growing up, one of Clint's childhood heroes was Robin Hood, which inspired him to pick up archery. He enjoyed the challenge of trying to make difficult shots and spent much of his time practicing. However, Harold saw his son's hobby as a way to fuel his alcoholism and entered him into many archery, trap, outdoorsman, shooting and skills competitions for the prize money. Regardless of being used, Clint took the competitions and training as an opportunity to spend time away from the farm and his father, having never particularly enjoyed either.

Clint intensely trained for each competition in hopes of winning to avoid his father's wrath. He generally succeeded at this task, racking up a number of trophies and medals as well as a few sponsorships. How he succeeded so often eventually came into question, as he was able to make some incredible shots, and he was being tested for steroid abuse soon after. Every test came back negative. Unknown to everyone, including Clint himself, it was his mutant ability that allowed him to excel in archery.


Clint isn’t a very social person, never having done much with others except his own family because his father pulled him out of school, making social situations a little awkward. Also thanks to his father constant disapproval, he seeks approval through competition and tends to be cocky, as he rarely loses.
