Born in Soviet Russia in the late 1920s, orphan Natalia “Natasha” Romanova joined the USSR’s Black Widow Program after WWII. The Program created elite female spies and assassins. Subjected to various experiments and years of rigorous training, Natasha eventually gained the title of Black Widow and undertook a mission to kill defecting scientist Anton Vanko and his new boss, famed American industrialist and weapons designer, Tony Stark. Black Widow failed to kill Stark, but stayed in the United States to harass Stark and his heroic identity, Iron Man. Seducing the hero Hawkeye to assist her, Natasha fell victim to her own game, falling for the handsome archer and cutting her ties with her Soviet spymasters.

Defecting to the United States, Black Widow joined S.H.I.E.L.D. She served with the shortlived West Coast super hero group known as the Champions and partnered with both Hawkeye and Daredevil for a time. Eventually she joined the Avengers and even led the group for a time, leaving after the villain Onslaught killed or severely injured most of the team.

Since then Natasha has alternated between working with her fellow heroes and working in the espionage community again. She has even encountered her replacement in the Black Widow program, Yelena Belova, and the two share a fierce rivalry.

Years of espionage training and work as a sleeper agent have made Black Widow naturally guarded and careful, even with her friends. She is a consummate professional in the field and can be ruthless if needed. Natasha has a romantic
side as well, preferring dangerous but idealistic men such as Daredevil and Hawkeye. She is a capable leader, but due to past losses while leading the Avengers, she is reluctant to step into that role again.

Abilities & Resources
The Black Widow Program enhanced Natasha’s physique and greatly slowed her aging. Despite being born in the first half of the 20th century, she still appears young and vital. The program’s Red Room training honed her skills, and Black Widow is a master of armed and unarmed combat, espionage, tactics, and infiltration. She speaks several languages and is familiar with most intelligence, criminal, military, and insurgent organizations worldwide. In addition to the traditional firearms and weapons she sometimes uses, Black Widow usually wears her Widow’s Sting—specially designed bracelets that house a built-in swing-line launcher and electric blaster.

Though her relations with Russia are shaky, Natasha still has some contacts in the former USSR. An ex-Avenger and ex-Champion, she has friends and allies that include Angel, Hercules, Wasp, and Iron Man. She maintains good relations with her former lovers, Hawkeye and Daredevil, and can call on them for aid in a pinch. Her work with S.H.I.E.L.D. Means the organization is a potent ally that views her as a vital resource. Her personal friendship with longtime S.H.I.E.L.D. director, Nick Fury, and allied heroes such as Wolverine and Captain America only strengthen this relationship.
