Natasha `Black Widow` Romanoff - The Avengers

Natasha Romanoff from The Avengers played by Scarlett Johansson.

Natasha Romanoff is a fictional female Human in the The Avengers comic series who was portrayed on screen by Scarlett Johansson. Natasha Romanoff has been in the Avenger films since her first appearance in Iron Man 2. She has not had a film based on her character yet but after the success of Wonder Woman in the D.C. universe, Marvel have produced Captain Marvel and have put Black Widow into action.

Unlike other characters such as Spiderman and Bruce Banner, Natasha Romanoff does not have any superhuman powers. Natasha is a superspy, the nearest you are going to get to a female James Bond.

Natasha has been trained to become a spy and an assassin from a very young age, working for the Russians. She was highly effective in both hand and weapon fighting and proved to be a very valuable asset for the Russians.

Romance and Friendship

S.H.I.E.L.D. saw that Natasha was a very skillful operative working for the Russians. They sent Clint Barton, the archer over to Russia to take her out. Clint didn't do as he was ordered and instead brought her onboard. Whether the Black Widow film will show her being brought into S.H.I.E.L.D. is open. Since becoming a S.H.I.E.L.D. operative, both Clint and Natasha have become close friends. There is no romance between Clint and Natasha as Clint is already married with three children.

Natasha has grown close to Bruce Banner and it is usually Natasha who comes to calm and soothe Bruce after he has turned into the Hulk. Natasha will hold Bruce's hand and sometimes sing to him. Bruce can return to normal without Natasha as he has done when he was on Sataar, forced to fight in an arena by the Grandmaster.

First Appearance

Natasha first appeared in the Avenger films when she was sent by Nick Fury to evaluate Tony Stark. Tony is a billionnaire Industrialist who made his money by making and selling hi-tech technolgy and weapons. Natasha first appeared in Iron Man 2.

Civil War

When the Avengers splintered due to a disagreement between Steve Rogers and Tony Stark over the Superhuman Registration Act, Natasha was in support of the act and took Tony Stark's side in the disagreement. However during the final fight, Natasha switches sides and joins Steve Rogers.

Style and Appearance

Natasha proves as capable as any man, she does not any man riding to her rescue. At the start of the Avengers movie, she has been captured and is being interrogated, her hands behind her back, she manages to break free and escape. The mistake by the kidnappers had been not to tie her feet up.

When she first appears, she has long red hair but as the she goes through the films, her hair straightens, shortens and then by Infinity Wars, it has become blonde. She is predominantly seen wearing black hence her nickname. When she was required to go undercover to infiltrate Stark Industries, she wore a white blouse and a black and white dress.
