A villain like Venom is exceptionally difficult to defeat, yet it seems Clint Barton, also known as Hawkeye, knows how to take him down. The best part of it was he accidentally invented a weapon that could kill the Symbiote.
Hawkeye is recognized today as one of the key members of the Avengers team, but when he started his journey in the Marvel Comics, he was not that popular. He was a criminal who used his talent in archery to conduct heist missions. Barton was not necessarily a sinister character, and he was able to redeem himself at some point.
His archery skills go beyond accuracy and precision; he has also mastered several techniques that are very difficult to pull off by anyone. This became his signature move which can almost be called his superpower. Some popular tricks he has up on his sleeves are cable and explosive arrows.
This Is How Hawkeye Can Defeat Venom With A Single Shot
In Marvel’s Avengers #18 issue created by Stan Lee and Don Heck, the Earth’s mightiest heroes were taking some time off after engaging in a rigorous mission while Hawkeye busied himself with a new invention. It was a new arrow trick that could carry a one-ton object with only a single shot. This arrow will produce a specific frequency pitch when it hits the target, and the vibration will cause the object to move.
This is exactly what can take Venom down – a weapon that creates a sound that will disturb his very soul. Venom is vulnerable to sounds in close proximity and the higher the decibel, the greater its effect on him.
With this accidental invention of Hawkeye, he now holds the perfect weapon to defeat the Symbiote. It would drive Venom mad and send him through the roof. This proves that Hawkeye is not only one of the best marksmen of Marvel but also a creative inventor.
