Steve/Clint, also known as AmeriHawk, is the slash pairing of Clint Barton (aka Hawkeye) and Steve Rogers (aka Captain America) in the Marvel Comics and Marvel Cinematic Universe fandoms.


Clint talking about Steve


In comics canon, Clint idolizes Captain America. He challenges his authority and mouths off at him often when they first team up, but the underlying respect is always there. At one point when Clint is slated to become the next Captain America due to Steve being temporarily sidelined in canon, he only concedes the shield to Bucky Barnes once Bucky proves he is worthy of Steve's legacy.


Clint Barton and Steve Rogers first meet in The Avengers (2012) film where they become part of a team. They appear together as a team again in The Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) and Captain America: Civil War (2016). Clint was part of Team Cap, taking Steve's side instead of Iron Man.


This article or section needs expansion.

Comics-based Steve/Clint fandom tends to focus on Clint's admiration of Cap. Kinks revolving around authority are particularly popular.

However, the overwhelming majority of Steve/Clint fanworks produced are MCU-based where their relationship is less defined which lends itself to various different interpretations.

Common Tropes in Fanworks

  • Domestic Fic: their everyday lives as a couple in an established relationship, usually of the fluff variety
  • Mundane AU: where Steve has no powers and Clint is not an agent of S.H.E.I.L.D., and they meet under more conventional circumstances
  • Deaf Clint Barton: most comics based stories include Clint's partial deafness, and although he is not deaf in the MCU sometimes writers will change it so he is, feeling that this an important part of his story
  • Threesome or Moresome: almost always involving other members of The Avengers
  • Alpha/Beta/Omega: commonly with alpha Steve and omega Clint, it also not unusual for these stories to involve one, or more, of the other Avengers
