If you could take Hitler out, would you do it? Sure. Yes. Easy. Most of use would. What about Oppenheimer? That’s when things get interesting. Could you follow orders to kill a man because the product of his genius would become a weapon of war? Could you pull that trigger? Yes, I can. I did… and that, as much as anything, is what makes me the Black Widow.
Born circa 1928, Natalia “Natasha” Romanova was orphaned as a child when she was trapped in a burning building during an early attack on Stalingrad by enemy forces. Ivan Petrovitch Bezukhov found Natasha in the inferno and rescued her. Following World War II, Natasha was recruited to become part of the Black Widow Program. She studied as a ballerina to cover for her true occupation, and was later biotechnologically and psycho-technologically enhanced—providing a rationale for her unusually long and youthful lifespan.
As egos collide, Black Widow—street name, Natasha Romanova—is the only character who does not throw a monstrous hissyfit. The only character to gather actionable intelligence against Loki from Loki. The character who not only literally kicks sense back into the brainwashed Hawkeye, but then absolves him of any sins performed while under the loony god’s spell.
You want fearless? When midtown Manhattan is swarming with thousands of robo-aliens, the dreaded Chitauri, Black Widow commandeers one of their slippery aero-sleds and flies it to steal Loki’s glowing phallic scimitar so as to save the world so Iron Man can blow up the aliens."

Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow [Iron Man 2, The Avengers]"This is nothing we were ever trained for."
Oh dear god. She was AMAZING in this movie. Like, I was already in love with Tony, and Pepper, and Loki, and Loki/Thor brother good-times, but I walked away from the Avengers with Natasha as my new favorite character.
