Nathaniel Pietro "Nate" Barton is the third child of Clint and Laura Barton. His first name is the masculine form of Natasha, after Natasha Romanoff, while his middle name is a homage to Pietro Maximoff. He was killed by Thanos during the Decimation in 2018, although he was resurrected by Hulk in 2023.
When Clint and Laura Barton decided to have a third child, they decided to name it Natasha, after the good friend Natasha Romanoff. However, they would soon discover that the gender of the baby would be a boy and change the name to Nathaniel. When the Avengers arrived at Clint Barton's Homestead, Laura informed Natasha of this situation, causing her to jokingly call the unborn child a traitor.
Shortly before Nathaniel was born, his father retired from the Avengers to live with him and his family, as with another child, Clint needed to help out a soon to be outnumbered Laura. They also decided to have his middle name be Pietro, after the man who sacrificed his life for Clint during the battle. Soon after, Nathaniel would be born and the Barton's sent a video to Natasha to show off their newborn as she worked at the New Avengers Facility.
While playing catch with Cooper, he was killed by Thanos during the Decimation in 2018, although he was resurrected by Hulk in 2023. He later attended Starks funeral with his family.
