Near the end of Avengers: Endgame, Hawkeye just

answered a phone call from his wife when Thanos' ship appears over the Avengers' base and launches a ton of missiles. The first missile appears to land maybe 5ft in front of Hawkeye.

Does he have other super powers aside from quick reflexes? I don't see how he came away from that

(plus the fall through quite a few floors of broken concrete and steel)

without just a bit of dust on him.

    He's imbued with plot-armour.

He has peak human strength.

From Wikipedia:

While Hawkeye has no superhuman powers (with the exception of the period when using Pym particles to become Goliath), he is at the very peak of human conditioning. He is an exceptional fencer, acrobat and marksman, having been trained from childhood in the circus and by the criminals Trick Shot and Swordsman. This includes considerable strength, as an employee of Cross Technological Enterprises found out when he tried to use the superhero's 250 pounds-force (1,100 newtons) draw-weight bow and found that he could not draw back the string to launch an arrow.

From Marvel.com:

An expert acrobat and military-trained combatant with exceptional endurance, stamina, and agility, Barton can stand to-to-toe with some of the best fighters around.

Marvel.com also gives him a rating of 2 for strength.


No, he doesn't have any other super powers, it was just good luck, I guess.
