Thank you. Needed that.

For a very brief time Hawkeye did indeed join the Justice League, in JLA/Avengers #3. A Multiverse crossing event that at the time was canon for both Marvel and DC.

I covered this in a previous fact here.

Not at the ready, but let me see if I can dig it up…

I’m faster than I thought, it was from Captain America #176
