Barton as a newborn

Clint and Laura Barton initially believed their third child to be a girl and planned to name the child Natasha, after their friend Natasha Romanoff. However, they discovered that the baby would be a boy and changed the name to Nathaniel. His parents also decided to have Barton's middle name be Pietro after Pietro Maximoff, who sacrificed his life to save Barton's father. In 2015, Barton was born and his parents sent a Skype video of him to Romanoff to show off their newborn.[2]

Barton moments before the Snap

In 2018, Barton's family was having a picnic on their homestead, during which he played catch with his brother, Cooper. Cooper and his mother both praised Barton's developing throwing skills. After his mother asked him if he wanted mayonnaise or mustard on his hot dog, Barton asked for ketchup instead. Suddenly, he disintegrated from the Snap.

Barton reunites with his father

Five years later, Barton was restored to life along with the rest of his family in the Blip. Shortly afterwards, Barton and his family were all reunited with his father.
