Barney Barton was born in Waverly, Iowa where he lost his parents at a young age when his alcoholic father collided into a tree with his wife, Barney and his younger brother Clint Barton were sent to an orphanage where they stayed for six years before running away to join the Carson Carnival of Travelling Wonder as carnival hands. When the Swordsman who was one of the main stars of the show selected Clint as his assistant, Barney became jealous and distant from Clint and even condemned Clint for going against Swordsman when he was embezzling money from the carnival. Barney soon became fed up with the carnival life and made plans to enlist in the US Army. Barney gave his brother an ultimatum, to join him in the army or lose his brother. When Barney was waiting at the bus stop and Clint did not show he was very disappointed and left without him. Clint did end up showing up late though and returned to the carnival sad at the fact his brother had left him.
Norman Osborn later invited Barney Barton to join his second incarnation of the Dark Avengers, effectively replacing Bullseye as the new Dark Hawkeye.
