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
- expert taction
- martial artist
- secret agent
- 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
- Russian (native language)
- Castilian Spanish
- 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!!!
