Black Widow

Hello everyone!  Today I will be posting about Black Widow.  She is just about my favorite character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and I wanted to share a little bit about her background.

Name: Natalia Alianovna Romanova, Natasha Romanoff

Abilities —

  • athleticism
  • expert taction
  • martial artist
  • secret agent
  • spy
  • assassin
  • expert marksman
  • master of various forms of hand to hand combat

 

Natalia Romanova (Natasha Romanoff) was born around 1928 in Volgograd, Russia.  She was saved from a burning building by Ivan Petrovitch Bezukhov during an early attack on Stalingrad by enemy forces.  Her training began in the late 1930’s after she attracted the attention of Soviet intelligence and was recruited by the KGB.  She excelled in training as an assassin for the Russian government.  Her training was held in a place known as the Red Room.

She received the Red Room’s variant of the Super Soldier serum(what was used on Captain America and The Winter Soldier).  Her mental and physical traits were enhanced dramatically.  Her body is physically enhanced to resist aging and disease and heals much faster than the average human’s body.  Black Widow has abilities greater than that of an Olympic athlete and has an amazing reaction time that borders on the edge of superhuman level.  She possesses the ability to mask her emotions perfectly and I’m sure has the best time at poker.  She can also process multiple information streams and can rapidly respond to changing tactical situations.  Captain America has similar abilities in the area.  She was recruited for S.H.I.E.L.D by Hawkeye after he was sent to eliminate her.

She can speak many language and those with similar roots

This includes:

  1. Russian (native language)
  2. English
  3. French
  4. German
  5. Bosnian
  6. Hungarian
  7. Romanian
  8. Castilian Spanish
  9. Czech
  10. Italian
  11. Latin
  12. Dutch
  13. Arabic
  14. American Sign Language – for Hawkeye obviously 🙂

 

 

 

 

I hope you liked this post!  I had a lot of fun researching Black Widow and learning more about her past than just what was shown in the movies.

So what do you think?  Should I do more posts on Marvel characters?  Who would you like to see on here?  Comment below and let me know!!!

Much love,

Leila

  1. Hello, =P
    I really enjoyed reading this post. I did not know that she know that many languages. (Super cool!)
    I hope you can do more of these on other Marvel characters. One on Captain America or Iron Man would be cool. *wink*

  2. Appreciating the commitment you put into your site and detailed information you present.
    It’s nice to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same old rehashed information. Excellent read!
    I’ve saved your site and I’m including your RSS feeds to my Google account.

  3. Hmm it appears like your blog ate my first
    comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what
    I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything.
    Do you have any helpful hints for beginner blog writers?

    I’d definitely appreciate it.

    1. Hi! Thanks so much for visiting my blog. As far as hints or tips, just write about things you like. The best posts come when there is passion behind them.

  4. Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest writing a blog
    post or vice-versa? My blog goes over a lot of the same topics as yours and
    I think we could greatly benefit from each other. If you are interested feel free to shoot me
    an email. I look forward to hearing from you!

    Fantastic blog by the way!

  5. Hello would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re
    using? I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time
    selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most
    blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
