Lila Barton is the daughter of Laura and Clint Barton, also known as Hawkeye. In her preteen years, she had taken a liking to archery, much like her father. Barton's life was one of the trillions claimed in the Snap in 2018, although she was resurrected five years later in 2023 when it was reversed.
Daughter of an Avenger
Life at the Homestead
Lila Barton was born to Clint and Laura Barton in Missouri, where she lives in a farmhouse with her mother and older brother, Cooper. Their entire existence was kept a secret due to her father's dangerous field work with S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Avengers. Natasha Romanoff was the only other person to be aware of Clint having a family and became a close friend to them, even developing an aunt-like relationship with Barton and Cooper.
In 2015, when her father returned home with the Avengers, Barton and Cooper excitedly hugged him in greeting. Barton then asked her father if he brought "Auntie Nat" with him, which Natasha Romanoff answered by asking Barton to hug her, too. As her family was formally introduced to the Avengers, Barton approached Thor after he stepped on her Legos and looked at him. She then rejoined her family as they discussed her mother's pregnancy with Romanoff, with Barton happy to be getting another brother.
That evening after dinner while Nick Fury briefed the Avengers, Barton presented Romanoff with a painting of a butterfly she made. Her mother then took her and Cooper upstairs for bed.
When her family had a picnic outside their house, Barton, who had taken a liking to archery, was being taught by her father, who had perfected the skill. Her father guided Barton in how to shoot an arrow as her mother called out for what condiment they wanted on their hot dogs, either mayonnaise or mustard. Barton and her father picked mustard, confused on the concept of putting mayonnaise on a hot dog.
Barton then took her shot and successfully hit the bullseye on a tree. Her father congratulated her, calling her "Hawkeye". As Barton went to collect the arrow, she disintegrated from the Snap.
Five years later, after the Blip, Barton was restored to life, along with her mother and brothers. When her father returned home in a Quinjet, Barton and the rest of her family ran outside to reunite with him.
In an alternate 2018 timeline, Barton was unable to locate her headphones and accused her brother of misplacing them. Her brother denied it, though Barton pointed out he had them the previous day. They were interrupted when Barton heard her father, seemingly calling for her. Seconds later, Barton came downstairs but couldn't find him, much to her confusion, and then returned upstairs.
