Why So Crushworthy?
Black Widow has it going on. She is tough, beautiful, and really good at what she does. I have a fondness for female spies who use more than their bodies. Natasha fits the bill. Black Widow is up there with Sif in my Marvel lady loves list. The lady has a long history. She begins working as a spy as a young girl. She gets experimented on by Russian scientists. She then meets Hawkeye and her life begins to change. She ends up as the S.H.I.E.L.D. agent we all know and drool over. She is a woman of many talents and each one is marvelous.
Natasha starts off as a bad gal but ends up on the good side. She is a femme fatale but doesn’t always have to seduce her way out a situation. It usually ends with her kicking some serious butt. She knows how to play with the big boys as well. She’s stood her ground with the likes of Wolverine and the Avengers boys club. She even led the Avengers for a time. She doesn’t have to prove how strong she is — she just has to look at you. Natasha has many aliases but she’s always the incredible Black Widow. The second Black Widow had some big shoes to fill after Natasha.
