Black Widow is a veteran ex-Soviet spy, having worked with the KGB, NKVD, and GRU. She now serves S.H.I.E.L.D. as a Special Officer, formerly the Deputy Director. After the Marriage of the Worlds, she fully joined the Avengers as an official member. Rumors and video footage have put her in the middle of half a dozen black ops missions-- she's pretty, but dangerous.

Natalia Romanova was an ex-girlfriend of Tony Stark back in the day, when the Soviet was still around. Since then, she mostly kept a low profile, though her identity is now known with her work with the Avengers. She's had a rumored relationship with Clint Barton, but the current news certainly places her as back with Stark, and carrying his children.

Background

Natalia "Natasha" Alianovna Romanova born in the Ukraine region as the Russian Civil War ended with the victory of the Red Armies.

Over World War Two, she was caught in the Battle of Stalingrad and was captured by agents of Baron Von Strucker and was taken to be trained as Master Assassins for Hydra. This would be broken up by Captain America, the man who would later become known as the Wolverine, and Nick Fury and his Howling Commandos. Natasha would later in her life encounter all of these men again, and have a heavy debt to repay them.

To save the life of the man who raised her, the young woman already noted for her stunning athleticism volunteered to join 'The Red Room', a segment of the NKVD (the Soviet Army Intelligence Service) which was working at the preliminary stages of making super soldiers, to counter the Nazi and American programs.

The experiments of the Red Room would lead to her increased agility and other abilities. Trained as an operative of the GRU and KGB, but continuing her 'ordinary' life as a cover, Natasha fell in love with Alexi Shostakov, a heroic Soviet Test Pilot, and their marriage was a propaganda event. Alexi would eventually become involved in the same program Natasha was.

At this point, Alexi seemingly 'died' in a test accident as the Soviet Union inducted him fully over into their experimental super soldier program. Natasha was devastated, having little else to live for, giving herself fully to the training regimen. She was conditioned as a soldier, an intelligence asset, and the archetypal 'Femme Fatale' seductress.

Once the USSR fell and she was reassigned to a different espinoage division, one of her early missions was a mission to America to attempt to seduce Tony Stark for purposes of industrial espionage. Her was blown, and she failed to accomplish her mission. She was declared persona non grata by the GRU and upon her return to 'Mother Russia' her decades-long services were terminated, her pension dissolved, and all of her personal income lost. Still having to care for the now elderly Ivan, her loyalties to the old regime terminated. And then at this point, Nick Fury came swooping in to her rescue with such timing one might have thought he had been waiting for it. With her old ties to the regime and it's intelligence services severed, a free agent with decades of field experience, and a trust and faith in Fury for his rescue of her as a child, Natasha immediately accepted the offer.

Within SHIELD, Natasha became a Special Operative with loyalties directly to Nick Fury rather than the system. Known as his personal 'Hound' whom he would send to do errands and contacts in the field, Natasha being somewhere would be as if Fury was there himself, observing in person. While not a highly ranked agent, and not adept at playing off the SHIELD bureaucracy, Natasha's expertise allowed her access to much of SHIELD's information and arsenal.

Even as the bureaucracy of SHIELD shifted, and the agency went public, Natasha's loyalties were always to Nick himself. As SHIELD engaged in a series of shadow wars with groups such as AIM, Hydra, and The Zodiac, even when not in the field Natasha would be acting as an adjunct for Fury and arranging information for his personal analysis. While her grasp of SHIELD operations and safehouses was nowhere near as extensive as Director Fury's, she had a grasp of the organization far greater than her rank would entail.

As SHIELD was seemingly taken over by Delties, advanced Artificial Intelligence Decoys, and Fury was removed from his position, Natasha left the organization with him and returned later on. When SHIELD became more proactive on dealing with mutants, and Captain America leaves it for personal regions, Natasha remains constantly loyal to Fury.

Heroes Crisis - She was pulled into the Labyrinth with others and had to battle through the various worlds there before she and the other heroes beat Kang the Conqueror and the Time Trapper.

After the crisis she returned to a the now merged world and was likely busy with helping Fury to get a grip on the new threats.

During the Skrull invasion she was part of the Secret Warriors and was relied on heavily by Fury in dealing with the Skrulls.

Following the Skrull invasion she was promoted to Deputy Director and given charge of managing their special case agents.

She takes leave from the Avengers, supposedly for a bit of time off, but it is far more likely, with her nature, that she was attending to some private business for SHIELD.

Personality

Black Widow 1 by Protokitty

Natasha Romanov is a woman of flexible loyalties and even more flexible moralities. She is emotionally distant, professional, even cold. She is often cynical, but completely focused upon the tasks she is set to-- regardless of what that may mean she is called upon to do. She is a soldier and spy by trade, and she trusts few. The world is filled with shades of grey, not black and white, but unlike most heroes, she does not have a naive view that what she does can fix it-- no, she can only improve things in small ways for a short time. Still, these actions are worthwhile to her. She is a creature of conflict, and is uncomfortable in times of supposed peace. She is pragmatic and focused, willing to do the dirty work, though she does not revel in it.
