I have to go with Green Arrow. Ever since the Mike Grell run back in the (late 80's?) Green Arrow has been a fantastic character. Hawkeye is fine, but will always be GA rip off.

GA should win by a longshot (no pun intended)
DarthBob - 1/2/2013, 9:30 AM
Hawkeye is a badass and GA is a wussified ripoff of Batman. The only thing GA and Hawkeye have in common is archery.
TheFanBoy - 1/2/2013, 10:03 AM
Lets be honest, most people who have voted for hawkeye have only seen him in the avengers: a movie where he had no character developement, if they bothered to look into more about each character's back stories, they'd find GA is far more interesting, and is very unique from batman, though forged around similar principles.

Hey considering Hawkeye has had quite the spotlight showing in recent Hollywood attention, more so than GA, GA popularity holds strong.
Now imagine how much more if WB would be more willing to show these potentials (done right)
Would these heroes notoriety/popularity would be?
Get it together quick WB.

The Fan Boy. Your name is fitting. Obviously if you would look into the characters they are both dumb. But. They also both have great character development, respectively in their own right.

I say it's a tie when it comes to archery skills, combat skills and their uniforms. But since Hawkeye is a ripoff of Green Arrow, I have to vote for Green Arrow.
PsyGuy - 1/2/2013, 12:04 PM
Green Arrow of course...
RolandD - 1/2/2013, 12:12 PM
GA FTW. Hawk is just riding on the movie's popularity. Always been a second-string character, most of the time with a ridiculous purple uniform. GA has style, heart.

Please don't let this be a DC v. Marvel debate, it is an Archer v. Archer debate. What am I saying its to late commence the nonsensical arguing.
IronHood - 1/2/2013, 12:56 PM
Hawkeye is good & their skills make them even but GA gets the edge because Hawkeye doesn't have the resources & equipment that Queen has. Queen is rich & can do almost anything.
Slider13 - 1/2/2013, 1:02 PM
Hawkeye would win because DC sucks...Nuff Said!
cdpacheco89 - 1/2/2013, 1:02 PM
The only reason I picked Hawkeye is because his special arrows. In skill Id say GA
Gunslinger - 1/2/2013, 1:09 PM
@jphoenix667 - Hawkeye is in the Avengers and recently bought the building he was living in just to make sure his neighbours weren't evicted. Just like that. Green Arrow is Batman's and Robin Hood's forbidden love child.

"Hawkeye doesn't have the resources & equipment that Queen has"

as a operative of SHIELD and an Avenger he doesn't have the resources?

Green. Motha. Flying. Arrow!
davideodus - 1/2/2013, 2:45 PM
hawkeye win this match
TheGodOfMischief - 1/2/2013, 3:04 PM
I was going to go with GA on this one, but then I remembered Ronin.
Mnathan - 1/2/2013, 3:36 PM
I think Clint would win,he is not only the arrow,is the sword,is the TRICK arrow and the badass,and also in mano a mano he is more tough.
ProphetSteVens - 1/2/2013, 3:51 PM
I see a lot of people keep saying that Hawkeye is a rip off of Green arrow. Every Character is a rip off of another, there are very few original characters weather is marvel or DC. When you look at both stories and both characters they are very good characters,But I think that Hawkeye is an improved version of GA. GA is a great character,but Hawkeye has more levels in the single character.
MadTitan - 1/2/2013, 5:00 PM
i think i'll have to go with Green Arrow on this.
Minghagz - 1/2/2013, 5:06 PM
GA for me. Never been a huge Hawkeye fan... although I heard he's got a great run right now.
pSYKOtEK - 1/2/2013, 7:27 PM
GA
the volume 2 with mike grell writing was phenomenal
been a fan ever since
the new one (in comics so far meh)
novaprime - 1/2/2013, 8:11 PM
hawkeye!!! shield agent nuff said!
Studmuffin - 1/2/2013, 10:01 PM
As usual, Marvel rips off DC's characters... Green Arrow is Bad.Ass.
TheOverlord - 1/2/2013, 11:38 PM
@Studmuffin Marvel rips off Green Arrow? How do you rip off Green Arrow? Green Arrow is nothing more than Robin Hood?
TheOverlord - 1/2/2013, 11:41 PM
Gotta go with Hawkeye. The two are both awesome in their own way. (Actually, in the same way - who are we kidding here?) But Renner was badass in The Avengers this past year. Much better than anything that DC has been able to put on the screen for Oliver Queen. I'm digging Arrow, but until I get my Supermax film, Hawkeye wins.
billnye69 - 1/3/2013, 5:21 AM
GA - cuz of his wife.
FOOM - 1/4/2013, 8:53 AM
Don't think there's much in it between the two characters. GA's costume has always looked Robin Hooded retarded though to the point that even a purplesque swashbuckling rival looks better. But I like Oliver Queen because he's truly one of the most defined and believable characters DC has ever created. Split decision.
Kevinwillpeabodyproperties - 1/4/2013, 7:13 PM
I'm shocked. I figured green arrow would kill this one
Rhysno1 - 1/7/2013, 10:23 AM
Hawkeye Hawkeye Hawkeye!
TheDetectiveComicRises - 1/9/2013, 8:05 AM
ARROW Baby! Green Arrow all the way for me!
JoshuaDBr - 1/16/2013, 9:03 PM
Green arrow is awesome! Hawkey may be doing well because of the avengers movie. But when it comes to the characters themselves I think green arrow is much more interesting! One thing I love about Green Arrow is his sense of style. He has several different looks. My personal favorite is the Robin Hood look with a good amount of facial hair, that cool hat he wears, and a Robin Hood style green shirt and pants. Then there's the new looking clean shaved no hat almost closer to Hawkeye look and there's the more shady looking one with the hood, the facial hair, And the usual green shirt and pants. And here's something that shows that Green Arrow's got some fans. He has his own television show.
Anyway-GREEN ARROW ALL THE WAY!
Greeneye - 1/22/2013, 8:22 PM
Green Arrow can kick Hawkeye's ass anytime.
TheSuperguy - 2/14/2013, 4:41 PM
A lot of people must have voted before ARROW premiered...
stoketh - 4/11/2013, 10:38 PM
the green arrow is probably a better marks man with a bow but when it comes to hand to hand skill i would probably tip my hat to hawkeye but stop bringing the movie in to this you guys keep saying its only because hawkeye was resiliently in a movie people pick him that has nothing to do with things and as to resources as stated above hawkeye has just as many at his disposable either between the avengers tonny stark or shield operations i never really got in to either of there stories so i cant judge there and ever one is hating on hawkeye saying hes a rip off but really if were going off of that almost no comic book character is safe including the green arrow so for me personally i always go for the under dog and that's hawkeye
JGXD6 - 4/26/2013, 7:23 PM
Hawkeye may have been in a big blockbuster but GA has his own show.
Mucklefluga - 5/29/2013, 8:17 AM
Go read Fraction's Hawkeye
TheEternalBeing - 5/30/2013, 9:08 PM
I have to go with Green Arrow in this debate, He has shown skill in being the better archer time after time after time, an example of his skill: He plugged the barrels of not one, but TWO guns while in the middle of a summersault, he can fire 29 arrows per minute and he split a raindrop in half. And Green Arrow is an accomplised martial artist, so the logic that if it comes to hand to hand Hawkeye automatically takes it? Wrong, Queen was also taught hand to hand combat by Natas more popularly known as the one who trained Deathstroke the Terminator, and I'm willing to bet Deathstroke is trained better than S.H.E.I.L.D. agents. Also queen is a master swordsman as well so Barton's small run as ronin would have gave him the edge had Queen not already been a master of the sword as well. Another point is, Queen has a larger variety of Trick Arrow than he is given publicity for, he has a trick arrow for any situation he feels necisary of it's use. Better Accuracy, Better hand to hand combat, tied swordsmanship and better Areows, Green Arrow takes it

Since Hawkeye got beat up by a WOMAN i'm giving it to Green Arrow
