Black Widow Faces Her Worst Enemy In New Series By Kelly Thompson

Black Widow Faces Her Worst Enemy In New Series By Kelly Thompson


Jay Cochran - January 21, 2020
Eisner-nominated writer Kelly Thompson (Captain Marvel) will be launching a new Black Widow ongoing series this April! Drawn by rising star artist Elena Casagrande (Catwoman), BLACK WIDOW #1 will feature a deadly mystery that only the Marvel Universe’s greatest spy can solve.

Beyond San Francisco’s Golden Gate, Natasha’s entire world will be upended as she finds herself up against some of her most formidable villains. But what happens when they’ve found a way to take her out – even more permanent than death? Readers can expect all the intrigue and heart-pounding exploits that Natasha Ramonoff is known for as well as appearances by characters like Red Guardian and Yelena Belova! With this new series, 2020 will be Black Widow’s greatest adventure yet!

"I think Black Widow is an incredibly rich character in that she works well in a lot of different genres, but that can also make her a little tricky – if you try to do too much with her instead of committing to a clear vision I think you can run into trouble,” Thompson told IGN. I’m very interested in the duality of Natasha… so look for that to be a recurring theme in this first arc as she struggles against that and leans into it. We have some high profile guest stars (and of course some impressive villains) but this story has to stand on its own for a lot of reasons that will become clear immediately in issue one… which starts off feeling like a classic Natasha story and then quickly becomes quite unlike any story we’ve ever seen for her before."

“Kelly Thompson is one of my favorite writers. She really knows how to get to the core of what a character is,” says Associate Editor Sarah Brunstad in the BLACK WIDOW Launch Trailer. “This new series asks the question: What would happen if some of Black Widow’s greatest enemies come together and figure out how to put her out of commission for good?”

“Natasha’s fought so many different villains over the years but she’s never had that one definitive villain in her life but now we’re bringing her past back to haunt her so to speak with the Red Guardian,” CB Cebulski adds. “What Kelly Thompson is doing, pulling together all these amazing elements of Black Widow’s past to bring her in the future makes it a must-read comic of 2020.”

Follow along on Natasha Ramonoff’s latest mission this April in BLACK WIDOW #1!

I agree. I love the Black Widow but truly feel Marvel has wasted her potential on a massive scale. "Facing her past"....again??  This seems to be the theme in every series she's had lately. "I've got red in my ledger". Please, enough. Enough! She was a government operative doing what she was trained to do. She finds out theyre not as decent as she was raised to believe, she quit them and moved on. She can't undo any of the things she did, anymore than Nick Fury can. Stark used to be an arms dealer; he realized he could help the world in a different way and moved on. Nearly getting fragged by his own munitions was a great wake up call. You don't see Iron Man moaning every issue about the weapons he made.

How about explaining how having everyone know her identity factors in to the whole espionage thing now. Has she really been around since WWII? Or has there been some other Soviet/Red Room project going on? How about some "untold tales" of past battles with AIM, Madame Hydra, Ghost Maker, Cursed Lotus, MODOK, the Hellfire Club? Maybe she's encountered some super villain we never heard of and the reason is, she killed the SOB early on.

There's so much they could do with her. Many directions to go. I only hope they wake up and also, give her a decent artist!! Let's not go with Noto or Samnee this time; Natasha isn't some washed out, bony flat plain jane. Any chance of getting Ivan Reis? Whats Mike Deodato doing these days? Can they lure him back?

 

Ah yes the James Bond approach, heck I remember that the Bugle even reported on what she was doing on a couple of occasions. Great way to be a spy when a newspaper can tell everyone what you are doing. There are plenty of other Red Room projects as shown in Unstoppable Wasp. In fact, Natasha, Bucky and Nadia should work together to stop the Red Room.

well she is nearly a hundred years old (she was born during ww2) so she has a long past but yeah constantly doing that just make the character seem like a one trick pony.

She isn't really around 100 since she is been revealed to be a series of clones. But let her please do something different
