“You didn't see that coming?”
— Pietro, Avengers: Age of Ultron

Hawksilver is the slash ship between Clint Barton and Pietro Maximoff from the Marvel Cinematic Universe fandom.


Clint fires twice on some HYDRA tanks, but for some reason they aren't destroyed. He tries again, only to be knocked down Pietro. Pietro walks by, asking if he saw that coming, and then quickly runs away. Clint stands up to fire at him, but looses him and gets shot by one of the tanks.

The two meet again at the fight in the Salvage Yard when Wanda attempted to hex Clint. She failed due to him placing a taser arrow on her head. Pietro then throws him to the side, and saves Wanda. He gives Clint a dirty look before running off, as Clint gives a sarcastic "you better run". After putting his sister in a safe place, Pietro attempted to go back in to kill Clint but was stopped by Wanda which told him to continue with the plan.

After switching sides and the birth of Vision, Clint shot a bullet through the glass beneath Pietro. Since he didn't have enough time to react, he ended up falling with the broken glass. Clint looked down at Pietro and mocked him with his words when they first met.

The Avengers and the twins eventually started the battle of Sokovia with Ultron. After a while of fighting and Pietro changing his mind about SHIELD, Clint attempts to save a boy when Ultron attempts to attack him. But, Pietro pushed him out of harm's way and took all the bullets. His last and dying words to Clint were, "You didn't see that coming?" Clint is left shocked but decides to take his body on board the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier.

In honor of Pietro and his self-sacrifice, Clint and his family decided to name their newborn son Nathaniel Pietro Barton.


Like Wanda's relationship with Clint, many think of Clint as Pietro's father figure. Fans think it is interesting that Pietro is willing to sacrifice his life for Clint although they just knew each other and formerly were enemies.
