Default MCU Fight: Hawkeye vs Rocket Racoon

We will be doing VS. battles for the MCU every week and will be using the Winners and Losers to create an accurate power tier list created by some of it's biggest fans (you). So don't forget to VOTE and after voting for a Winner please include a comment on which power tier, both the Winner and Loser should reside within. Also, see below for more details on the characters abilities as well as for a list of available power tiers to choose from.

Don't forget to put which Tier group you think Hawkeye and Rocket Racoon belong to in your posts.

So, without further delay here is this week's match up.


HAWKEYE Vs ROCKET RACOON





HAWKEYE

Master Marksman: Hailed as the World's greatest marksman, Barton is an outstanding all-around master marksman, tremendously skilled in wielding both conventional firearms and archery bows with virtually unerring accuracy. Due to his superior eyesight and impeccable hand-eye coordination, Barton is capable of firing multiple arrows in a few seconds, strike enemies's weak points with extreme accuracy and directly hit small targets in the greatest of distances, even precisely shoot down a Chitauri Chariot without even looking at it. He is ambidextrous, able to use bows with either hand in either place. He can also score a bulls-eye with three darts simultaneously thrown without effort. During his retirement, he often played golf where he claimed to hit a hole-in-one every single time.

Master Assassin: Barton is one of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s greatest assassins, having once been assigned to kill Black Widow, a notorious master assassin, and was assigned to be a special agent in S.H.I.E.L.D.'s investigation of the item that was found in New Mexico, having been able to neutralize de-powered Thor in case Phil Coulson had ordered it.

Peak Physical Condition: Due to his rigorous military training, Barton possesses exceptional strength, endurance, and stamina. He has extremely sharp reflexes and great agility being capable of keeping up with Natasha in terms of speed.

Expert Acrobat: Barton is highly athletic and agile, capable of complex acrobatic maneuvers.

Master Martial Artist: Barton is an excellent combatant, having been extensively trained in various forms of martial arts as an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. He could swiftly incapacitate Scarlet Witch in close quarters, successfully avoiding her mind manipulation powers. When brainwashed by Loki, he could fight the extremely skilled Black Widow to a standstill, only losing when the latter resorted to guerilla tactics to best him in combat. In the Avengers Civil War, he later fought evenly against her again, and was able to swiftly knock Black Widow down, but it should be noted that Scarlet Witch swiftly interrupted their duel and called Barton out on pulling his punches. He also managed to temporarily hold his own against the considerably stronger Black Panther during the airport fight. Barton also managed to bring down many Chitauri troops and Ultron Sentries while fighting alongside the other Avengers, using his bow and arrows as melee weapons for close quarters.

Expert Tactition: arton has been trained in military tactics, being able to command a team of operatives under the unwitting control of Loki to heist a vault in Germany and infiltrate the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier with esteemed success, often using diversions to accomplish his goals.


ROCKET RACOON

- Enhanced Intelligence: Rocket's cerebral cortex was genetically enhanced meaning that unlike other members of his species he has a cognitive and intellectual equivalent or superior ability to the most sensitive species in the galaxy. He can talk and communicate with other species, as well as perform extremely complex tasks.

- Enhanced Strength: Due to his augmentations, Rocket is able to use weapons that are designed to be wielded by normal sized humanoids with ease. He was also able to easily stun two human sized Ravagers while jumping onto them and attacking them and was able to knock out one of them by punching him repeatedly in the head.

- Enhanced Durability: Due to his augmentations, Rocket is capable of surviving damage that would normally be sufficient to kill an animal of his size, as well as injure a normal sized human. He has been attacked with enough force to knock him back several meters and only suffered minimal injury.

- Enhanced Agility: Rocket's entire skeletal structure is cybernetic, allowing him to move more like a human and still be as agile as a raccoon.

- Acute Senses: Rocket can see, smell, and hear better than humanly possible. This potentially helps him detect approaching enemies, as he was able hear Yondu's Ravager Clan footsteps so that he could put on traps for them, as well as using his sense of smell to detect Brahl and another Ravager approaching to him while hiding.

- Master Marksman: Rocket has a great skill in handling various weapons throughout the Galaxy, with the preference of high-powered weaponry. He also has excellent precision, enough to shoot Quill with an non-lethal electrical round with his cannon while the latter was running away. During the flight of Kyln, Rocket destroyed many Drones with weapon of a Nova Corps soldier.

- Expert Tactician: Rocket is a brilliant strategist. He is able to formulate strategies advanced combat and escape, even with minimal resources, and to change them according to the needs of the situation. Rocket already said he fled from 22 prisons. In Kyln, he quickly devised a plan to escape using only a power source and security band.

Default Re: MCU Fight: Hawkeye vs Rocket Racoon

A lot depends on what weapons are available and the terrain ( open ground vs forest). While Rocket's agility is impressive, in Avengers Hawkeye was able to hit moving targets, at great distance, and while they were moving at high speeds.

Rocket is an excellent shot and if he has cover, then the odds are even or slightly in his favor.

If it's just hand to hand, no weapons and open ground that's quite tough - probably Hawkeye.

However if any cover or tech is available, then Rocket.

Also, if prep time is available, then Rocket all the way- the guy has demonstrated the kind of strategic and tactical thinking that I would attribute to Batman.

For that reason I give the edge to Rocket.

Good thinking, that's why I ended up voting for Rocket too.

This is a tough one. I think Hawkeye is the better marksman and soldier, but Rocket is smarter and has access to more advanced technology. It's really a fight that both can win, especially since neither of the two can take that much punishment.

The thing that decides it for me is one is using tech originally created about 60,000 years ago.

The other is using advanced alien technology.

I don't think it would be a stomp for Rocket but I think his tech and the fact that his advanced senses would cancel out Barton's would give him the edge.

I love Rocket. But its really a 50/50 fight for me. Like the outcome would depend on who had more sleep.

I think either is capable of winning but that Rocket would win through guile and a tech advantage.

Rocket should win this. He is more intelligent. Has the technologicly superior weapons, and he is more agile, which can be seen when he is jumping from tree to tree taking out the Ravengers in Vol#2.
