He soon reformed and joined The Avengers alongside Captain America, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver following the original lineup of the team. Although he was considered as a valued member of the team, he tried being solo but soon ended up joining with The Defenders. While faced the Crossfire, he successfully foiled his plan with help from fellow vigilante and S.H.I.E.L.D. Operative Bobby Morse AKA Mockingbird, whom he would eventually marry.

He returned to lead West Coast Avengers and then Mockingbird was killed by the demonic Mephisto. Hawkeye was offered to lead the team of Thunderbolts but during Scarlet Witch’s mental breakdown he died in battle (Avengers Disassembled). However, he was later alive in “House of M” reality and brought back to life afterwards.

After “The Death of Captain America”, he was approached to wield his shield by Tony Stark but rejected (Fallen Son – The Death of Captain America). Clint took the alias of Ronin to join the New Avengers during World War Hulk. He fought the Skrulls on “Secret Invasion” and opposed Norman Osborn’s rule on “Dark Reign”. In post “Siege” period, he re-joined the Avengers and later led the Secret Avengers.
