Romanoff pointed out that if she didn't lead the Avengers, no one would, something Rogers believed might be fine. However, Romanoff told him that she used to have nothing in her life until she became an Avenger, giving her a family and making her better. She then addressed that even though people are gone, she was still trying to be better, which Rogers then stated that they both needed to get a life.
Suddenly, an alert appeared for the front entrance camera, so Romanoff opened it revealing Scott Lang to be standing outside. They then let him inside, where he asked them if they studied Quantum Physics , which Romanoff said she was, only for conversation. Lang then told them about he got trapped in the Quantum Realm five years ago due to the Snap.
Lang then revealed that for him, it was actually five hours in the Quantum Realm. Rogers then tried to get Lang to clarify what he was saying, which was that time works differently in the Quantum Realm, but there is no way to navigate it, which was what Lang was suggested. He expressed an idea to control the Quantum Realm, entering at one point and exit out another through time. However, none of them knew how to handle this idea, so they decided to visit Tony Stark , who was living a normal life with his family.
They drove to his house and sat down with him to discuss Lang's idea, but Stark was opposed towards it. Romanoff told Stark that they had to try, but he continued to refuse. Stark then left them when his daughter came out, causing them to leave without his help. Rogers then suggested another brain they could use to help them, the Bruce Banner. The three then met up with Banner in a diner, who explained to Lang his new transformation into a mixture of Banner and the Hulk. They were then interrupted by some kids who wanted a picture with Banner, and when they left, Banner informed them that Time Travel was outside his area of expertise, but Romanoff reminded him that he was able to merge his two personas, something that seemed impossible at one point in his life.
He then agreed to help them, and they returned to the facility to work on navigating the Quantum Realm to ensure time travel. Romanoff witnesses the Time Travel experiment. When Banner mentioned not wanting something to go wrong and have Lang stuck in the past, Romanoff said he was joking, for which Banner was unsure of, due to the uncertainty of the experiment.
Banner set the machine up to send Lang back a week and bring him back in ten seconds. They then activated the machine, which sent Lang into the Quantum Realm, and when they brought him back, he was a child. Banner then tried to fix this error by sending him back, but when he returned he was an old man, followed by a baby. Banner then told Romanoff to kill the power on his signal, which successfully returned Lang to his normal age.
Romanoff reunites with Clint Barton. After their failed experiment, Stark arrived at the facility having achieved time travel successfully. He then agreed to help them, and they began to get the Avengers back together. Romanoff went to Tokyo in search for her best friend, Barton, having discovered that is where he was.
She made her way to Barton's location, to be confronted with him ruthlessly murdering Yakuza boss Akihiko. When Barton became aware of her presence, he told her that she should not be there, which she replied neither should he. Barton told Romanoff he had a job to do, but she told him that it wouldn't bring his family back.
She then revealed their plan to bring everyone back, but he told her to not give him hope, something he had lost which Romanoff wished she could have given him sooner. She then held his hand to comfort him and the two returned to the facility. With all the Avengers assembled once again, they began to work on creating the machine as Scott Lang prepared to test it. They finished the machine, but Clint Barton ended up being the one to test it, as Lang was not ready. They all watched as Barton stood on the machine and then went into the Quantum Realm.

A few seconds later he was brought back, and Romanoff went to his side to check on him. After telling her he was fine, he showed her a baseball glove he retrieved, revealing that their experiment had worked.

As they traveled to Vormir, which Nebula had set the coordinates for, the two best friends enjoyed the sight of space travel, laughing with each other, as Hawkeye mentioned that they had gone through so much since being S. Black Widow and Hawkeye arriving at Vormir. They soon arrived at the planet, which amazed Hawkeye, saying that what they were doing would be awesome if not for the circumstances.
They then made their way through the planet, climbing up the mountain, which they found to be exhausting. Black Widow pointed out the physical effort of their mission by stating that Rocket, who she referred to as a raccoon, wouldn't have had to climb a mountain, which Hawkeye stated that technically he was not a raccoon, but she didn't care. When they made it to the top of the mountain, they were greeted by the Stonekeeper , who alarmed them, causing them to draw their weapons at him.
The Stonekeeper, who had revealed Black Widow's father 's name, informed them that he was a guide for those seeking the Soul Stone, so Black Widow demanded that he show them where it was. However, he informed that it is never that simple. They learned that the stone was at the bottom of the cliff, and then the Stonekeeper told them that they had to make a sacrifice of what they love for the Soul Stone.
Upon learning about the price to pay for the Soul Stone , Black Widow and Hawkeye took a moment to let the severity of the situation sink in. Black Widow sat down as she contemplated doing whatever it takes to retrieve the stone, while Hawkeye voiced his disbelief. She then remembered how Nebula told them that Thanos killed his daughter on Vormir , meaning the sacrifice was legitimate. They then repeated what Captain America had said before their mission "whatever it takes", before accepting that one of them needed to sacrifice themselves for the stone.
Hawkeye decided that he would make the sacrifice, holding Black Widow's hand to comfort her in their final moments. However, she then reciprocated the same gesture, making him realize that she intended on sacrificing herself. They then argued over which one it should be, neither wanting to willingly let the other die. Black Widow attempted to make her case, saying this is what she had been working towards all these years, and that she did not want Hawkeye to die.
However, Hawkeye told her he should do it, as he saw himself as too far gone, which she assured him that he is more than his worst moments. However, when he told her that she should not try and give him a chance, she responded to the fact that he did for her when they first met. Black Widow and Hawkeye embrace each other. They then took a moment to embrace each other's friendship, resting their heads on one another, until Hawkeye took her off guard and threw her down so he could sacrifice himself.
He told her to tell his family, when they were brought back, that he loved them. However, Black Widow gained the upper hand and threw him down, deciding to make the sacrifice herself. She hit him with her Black Widow's Bite , causing him to get shocked. As she made a run for the cliff, Hawkeye ripped off the taser , drew his bow, and fired an explosive arrow near her, causing her to be thrown away from the cliff.
He then made it for the cliff and jumped off, but Black Widow also jumped and grabbed him, shooting a grapple and attaching it to him, so he wouldn't fall, forcefully sacrificing herself. However, Hawkeye was able to grab onto her, but could not pull her up, without both of them falling. He got mad at her for stopping him from sacrificing himself. She asked him to let her go, knowing that there was no other way, but he couldn't bring himself to do it. He desperately tried to get her to not do it, not letting go of her, as he did not want his best friend to die, but she felt the exact same and forced him to let go.
Hawkeye cried as he watched Black Widow fall to her death , helpless to do anything else. With the sacrifice being made. Hawkeye then obtained the Soul Stone. All the Avengers then returned to , believing that the mission had been a success, until they saw Barton fall to his knees as Romanoff did not return. Banner asked him about her whereabouts, but he was too saddened to respond. However, they were able to understand that Romanoff had died during the mission, causing them their initial celebration to perish.
The original Avengers all gathered outside to mourn the loss of their friend, Stark asking if she had any family they had to inform, which Rogers noted that they were her family, something she had told him earlier. When Thor questioned why they were acting like she was dead, believing that they can too bring her back with the stones, Barton told them that they it couldn't be undone. Barton then became angry over the death of his best friend, stating that it was meant to be him who made the sacrifice.
Banner then agreed that she couldnt be brought back, so he told them that they wouldn't let her death be for nothing, so they began constructing a Nano Gauntlet to control the Infinity Stones. Banner used the Gauntlet to reverse the Snap , successfully restoring the lives of the individuals who lost their lives five years ago , though Romanoff was not revived as Banner attempted. Barton told her that he wish there was a way for him to let her know that they were successful and her sacrifice meant something. Maximoff comforted him by saying that she knew, as well as Vision.
The entirety of Romanoff's character is hard to distinguish based on how she lies and tricks people for a living. She was capable of convincingly portraying friendly and flirtatious, timid, vulnerable and scared. For the most part, she was a level-headed, strong-willed and independent woman.
Romanoff normally maintained a controlled, almost emotionless persona to keep whatever she was thinking a secret unless she was around people she absolutely trusts. Although she was more than willing to rush into deadly battle and other unnerving missions for S. However, she was no longer afraid of him due to falling in love with Bruce Banner. Though a very serious agent, Romanoff was by no means stuffy and has a sarcastic sense of humor, which mostly surfaces when she was with Captain America or Hawkeye , both of whom she was comfortable around.
Romanoff was very smart and loyal which was displayed when she made good on the debts she owed Barton and Rogers saving the former from Loki 's mind control and trying to protect the latter during a highway assault. While tough and at times ruthless, she was still a good person and can be quite heroic in her own right.
These qualities are usually brought out by her other Avengers , mainly her missions with Steve Rogers. And no matter how injured she was in battle, Romanoff will go out her way to make sure bystanders are out of harm's way keeping several S. Her close loyalty to both Rogers and Barton was shown in the Avengers Civil War , as she was willing to aid their faction despite being forced to go on the run from the United Nations afterward. As a result of her childhood, she considered the Avengers her family, being desperate to keep them together when the Sokovia Accords were due to be signed and was affected when Tony Stark denounced her as a friend and made it clear he would not help her in the future.
She was further shocked and saddened when Barton following the loss of his family became more ruthless and violent when she encountered him in Tokyo. Romanoff was also very close with Clint Barton 's family, especially with his and Laura Barton 's only daughter, Lila , being the only member of Avengers who knew of their existence. Romanoff was genuinely affectionate with the child, hugging her the moment they reunited and sweetly commended the little girl on the drawing she made. They originally named their youngest child after Romanoff prior to them discovering that it was, in fact, a boy, thus naming him Nathaniel instead, with Romanoff humorously referring to the unborn child as a "traitor".
This was further proven when in Vormir where she refused to let Clint sacrifice himself, knowing how much he meant to his family and vice-versa and died instead because, honestly, she had little to lose. Romanoff was sterilized as a rite-of-passage for her graduation from the training she underwent in the Red Room under the supervision of Madame B. This event deeply affected her, as she regretfully told Banner of the so-called advantages of the procedure.
Despite her lifestyle of espionage and operating within the shadows, Romanoff's adaptability influenced her opinions on the Sokovia Accords. Realizing the difference between S. This care for Captain America eventually caused Romanoff to betray Stark's team and assist their escape so they could clear Barnes name, eventually becoming a fugitive because of this.

Our Black Widow might've missed out on being Marvel's first superheroine by a couple of decades, she does have one big advantage over her predecessor: Natasha Romanoff was the first Black Widow to get her own ongoing feature.
Claire Voyant only appeared a handful of times, and never had a regular book to call home. The second Widow, meanwhile, helped kick off the second volume of Amazing Adventures.
Who Is Yelena Belova, Florence Pugh’s Black Widow Character?
According to the comic historians at TwoMorrows, Natasha was even the first female Marvel hero to star in her own regular feature , although Golden Age heroes like Timely's Ms. America, Namora, and the Blonde Phantom make that claim a little complicated. Unfortunately, the Black Widow's first stint as headliner didn't last very long.
While Natasha's strip blended stunning artwork with pointed social commentary, her Amazing Adventures co-stars, the Inhumans, proved much more popular, and the Black Widow's solo outing ended after eight installments. In , however, ol' hornhead was in trouble: His ongoing book wasn't selling all that well. Creatively, things were stagnant. Marvel originally decided to shake things up by putting Iron Man and Daredevil in the same comic, but Daredevil writer Gerry Conway came up with a different idea.
As Conway remembers, "I was a fan of Natasha, and thought she and Daredevil would have interesting chemistry" although he admits that he might've just liked Black Widow because he's a "sucker for redheads". He was right. She even got her name added to the title of the book in Daredevil and the Black Widow 93 , where it stayed until Sales rose accordingly, and with Black Widow as a co-star, Daredevil rediscovered its groove. During Black Widow's run on the title, Natasha and Matt Murdock started dating and moved to San Francisco allegedly, showing an unmarried couple living together got Marvel in trouble with the Comics Code Authority.
When writer Steve Gerber took over the book, however, it meant an end to Marvel's biggest power couple. Black Widow stayed behind. Comic book fans weren't the only ones who thought Daredevil and Black Widow made a great couple. Angela Bowie, a model, actress, and wife of rock legend David Bowie , thought so too. In , shortly after losing out on the lead role in a Wonder Woman television movie , Bowie bought the rights to Daredevil and Black Widow and started developing a TV series in hopes of giving her acting career a big boost.
It didn't work out. Bowie recruited Shadows and The Dirty Dozen star Ben Carruthers as Daredevil and had Natasha Korniloff, who helped Angela's husband come up with some of his most outrageous costumes , design the outfits. The couple took some promo shots to help sell the show to networks, but that's as far as the project ever got. No scripts were written, no scenes were filmed, and no studios were interested in buying the show. Years later, Angela Bowie told the fan site Man Without Fear that the proposed superhero show was simply too expensive and complicated for networks to tackle back '70s, and accordingly, the project struggled to find a home.
We still don't know exactly what Bowie's take on the Black Widow would've been like, but don't feel too bad for her: after divorcing David in , Bowie went on to become an accomplished author and journalist , not to mention a Celebrity Big Brother contestant. In the movies, Natasha doesn't have any real superpowers. She's just really good at sneaking, fighting, and blowing things up. Like any spy worth her salt, Black Widow has lots of handy gadgets to help her out, but at the end of the day its her training, quick reflexes, and razor-sharp mind that lead the way to victory.
In the comics, things are a little different. For the most part, writers and artists tend to attribute to Natasha's superior abilities to her time at the Red Room , a Soviet training facility. One story, however, reveals that Natasha's got something a little more special running through her veins. In 's six-issue Black Widow series , Natasha learns that the Red Room brainwashed her and 27 other orphans, gave them false memories, and injected them with a special super soldier serum to make craft them into weapons.
Thanks to Natasha's chemical enhancements, she heals four to five times faster than a normal human, doesn't ever get sick, and ages much, much slower than she should. In addition, the Red Room developed a special pheromone spray that prevents its agents from attacking anyone who's wearing it — a product that Nick Fury's used again and again to keep Natasha in line.
While the Red Room remains a major part of the Black Widow's origin story, her superpowers almost never come up, probably to keep the comics' Natasha in line with her big-screen counterpart although, we've gotta say, the idea that the Widow gets by on her skills and wits alone is also just much, much cooler. It's the same old story.
Studio executives are surprised when female-led action flicks do big business at the box office, and suddenly, everyone is rushing to capitalize. That's certainly true in , when Wonder Woman's success has Marvel feeling a lot better about its upcoming female-led superhero adventure, Captain Marvel , and a possible Black Widow solo flick. Don't get too excited, though. Natasha's been down this road before, and it didn't have a happy ending the first time around. In , four years before Tony Stark jump-started the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Tomb Raider and Kill Bill proved that female action stars appealed to audiences just fine, and Lionsgate wanted in.
The studio hired actor and screenwriter David Hayter , who'd just penned the scripts for the first two X-Men movies, to bring the Black Widow to the big screen. Hayter's screenplay followed the comics pretty closely, and the writer was all set to step into the director's chair when Lionsgate pulled the plug. As Hayter explained, in addition to all those female-led action movies that did well, "we had BloodRayne and Ultraviolet "… which did not. The Charlize Theron-led flop Aeon Flux was the last straw. After that failed, Lionsgate decided not to go forward with Black Widow. That's a bummer for Hayter, who loves the character so much that he named his daughter Natasha, but it's even worse for the Widow's fans.
While Natasha finally made her feature film debut in 's Iron Man 2 , Black Widow's been a sidekick for almost a decade. We're still waiting for that solo movie — and waiting, and waiting, and waiting. Natasha wasn't the first Black Widow in Marvel Comics, and she wasn't the first Black Widow in the company's cinematic universe, either, although you wouldn't know if you didn't watch Marvel's Agent Carter — which, judging by the ratings , you probably didn't.
As one of the SSR's only female agents, Peggy Carter must battle sexism in the workplace while also doing her best to topple Leviathan, a Soviet espionage agency with eyes for Howard Stark's genius and deadly inventions. Throughout the show, Carter butts heads with a Leviathan assassin known only as Dottie Underwood, who serves as Peggy's evil counterpart — and who also happens to be the MCU's first Black Widow.
Agent Carter never actually uses the Black Widow codename for Dottie, but if you're paying attention, it's clear and if you're not, the show's producers confirmed the connection. Like Natasha, Dottie is a product of the Red Room training program. Like Natasha's, Dottie's been trained to be both quick-thinking and ruthless.
They even fight like one another: once actress Bridget Regan realized where Agent Carter was taking her character, she studied Scarlett Johansson's fight scenes in order to make sure that both spies had the same style. Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow is one of the very best parts of The Avengers: Age of Ultron , but you wouldn't know it from the film's merchandise. While all of the other Avengers were front and center on toy store shelves, Natasha was noticeable only in her absence.
Heck, in the action figure versions of Black Widow's coolest scene — you know, the one where she rides a motorcycle out of the back of a moving quinjet — Hasbro replaced her with Iron Man and Captain America. That's not just an oversight.
How Avengers: Endgame sets up the Black Widow movie
It's a sexist trend, and it can all be traced back to one man: Ike Perlmutter, the former Toy Biz executive who bought Marvel in the '90s and sold it to Disney in Allegedly, Perlmutter thinks that "girl toys" don't sell , and used his position as Marvel CEO to veto Black Widow merchandise again and again. It wasn't just fans who were disappointed by the lack of Widow collectibles. At least Natasha's in good company: The Guardians of the Galaxy's Gamora was similarly excluded from the first movie's merchandise, while Rey, the lead character in Star Wars: The Force Awakens , received similar treatment when her movie came out.
At first, Joss Whedon and Black Widow seemed like a match made in heaven. Whedon rose to fame as the steward of complex and compelling female action heroes on shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer , Angel, and Firefly , and his geek cred is beyond question. If anyone in show business could get Black Widow right, fans seemed to think, it'd be Joss.
