HELLLLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO (Sorry, was that too long?)
I present to you *trumpet sounds in background* MY FIRST COLLAB with my friend and blogger SH(not Sherlock Holmes)!!
We both adore Marvel so we both will present our point of view on Black Widow/Natasha Romanoff/Ms. Johnson.
Warning: My character perspective has major spoilers, people.
Hmmm, she had a really hard life. She had a fake family and went through the Red Room when she was only 12 years old. She was separated by the one person she loved the most (her sister Yelena) and was sent on missions which could’ve killed her and was controlled by a rich old man, but no matter what happened, she turned out to be a loving sister, a loyal friend and a really good fighter.
She went through a lot but the way she still turned out to be a good person is hard to imagine. Her family was The Avengers and her dedication to it was just WOW, she gave up her life for her family and friends. She cared about everyone and was really kind. An excellent fighter she was, and was really close to Hawkeye, Hulk and Captain America.
She shows that no matter what the past you can be a better person in the future..
I cried during her death in Endgame.
I couldn’t take it.
But hey, everything happens for a reason.
She still remains one of my most loved Avengers.
Black Widow is probably one of the sickest Avengers in the MCU. Even though she had a fake family, and was forced to become an assassin, I believe she is a true hero. And especially an amazing idol and role model for young girls. The MCU is full of awesome female heroes but I feel like she’s the most famous for all the right reasons.
Black Widow (played by Scarlet Johansson) first appeared in the MCU in Iron Man 2. She was originally a Russian assassin and spy, but was later recruited (or how she says ‘saved) by S.H.I.E.L.D (Statistical Homeland Intervention Enforcement Logistics Division) as one of their top agents. Natasha has gone undercover multiple times, and helped save the world as an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D, but it wasn’t enough. SHe still felt guilty for all that she did while she was an assassin for the Red Room (the Russian organization that had trained her to be an assassin), this led her to become one of the Avengers. She’s one of the original 6 (the original 6 were Captain America, Iron Man, Black Widow, Thor, The Hulk and Hawkeye).
Natasha died in Avengers: Endgame, and I’m not afraid to admit, I did cry when that happened. She sacrificed herself instead of her best friend Clint Barton/Hawkeye (played by Jeremy Runner) so that the Avengers could get the soul stone (the soul stone is one of the 6 infinity stones) and defeat Thanos. Black Widow was also a close friend of Steve Rogers/ Captain America (played by Chris Evans) and Bruce Banner/The Hulk (played by Mark Ruffalo). She was also considered family be all of the Avengers.
In the most recent movie featuring Black Widow, named Black Widow (real shocker name, right?), we delve a little into Black Widow’s past. The movie takes place after Captain America: Civil War, once Natasha has gone into hiding, her past catches up with her. Natasha’s family (it was a fake family, their parents had been issued by the Red Room and her sister had been ‘paired’ with her, nonetheless all 4 of them bonded together) is also introduced into the MCU for the first time. The movie was particularly focused on the relationship between Natasha and her sister Yelena Belova (played by Florence Pugh), both of whom had a traumatized childhood. In the end of the movie, Yelena and Natasha, along with the help of their parents, take down the Red Room. In the after credits of the movie, Yelena is shown visiting Natasha’s grave, where Valentina Allegra De Fontaine (who had been introduced in The Falcon And The Winter Soldier, played by Julia Louis-Dreyfus) assigns Yelena a task of assassinating Clint Barton, who she said “Was responsible for you sister’s death”, which, of course, had been a misunderstanding (I haven’t seen Hawkeye yet so I can’t say much about this).
(Kaashvi- Well Hawkeye has all the answers and the whole Yelena thing)
We hope you enjoyed this post!
