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.
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 while he thought about the dream Wanda Maximoff showed him. She then rejoined her family as they discussed her mother's pregnancy, 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. Laura then took her and Cooper upstairs for bed. Barton's painting helped Bruce Banner realize that Ultron was planing to evolve.
In 2018, 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. Clint guided Barton in how to shoot an arrow as her mother called out for what condiment they wanted on their hot dogs: mayonnaise or mustard. The two picked mustard, confused on the concept of putting mayonnaise on a hot dog.
As Clint watched, Barton then took her shot and successfully hit the bullseye on a tree. Clint congratulated her, calling her "Hawkeye". As Barton went to collect her arrow, Laura called them over for lunch. Barton prepared to meet up with her family when suddenly, she disintegrated into ash, as her life was one of the trillions claimed in the Snap.
Five years later when the Snap was reversed by Hulk, Barton was resurrected, along with her mother and brothers. When her father returned home in a Quinjet, Barton and the rest of her family all rushed outside to hug him, as Clint hadn't seen them for years, which were only hours for them. They later attended Tony Stark's funeral, standing with Clint as he mourned the loss of his friend, who had sacrificed his life.
In an alternate 2018, Barton was unable to locate her headphones and accused Cooper of misplacing them. Her brother denied it, though Barton pointed out he had them the previous day. Their argument was interrupted when Barton heard her father, seemingly calling for her. In reality, Clint had come from the future while testing out the Avengers' time machine and was returned to his time, before he could see his daughter. Seconds later, Barton came downstairs but couldn't find her father, much to her confusion. Dismissing this, she returned upstairs.
