Natasha's reputation is widely known only to that of whom she works with in SHIELD and amongst that crowd she's often regarded as the top agent in all of SHIELD's employ. Natasha's repuation consists of a cold hard effectiveness, as well as a woman who looks out for her team mates. She generally prefers to work alone, however, and this is also widely known. Her reputation to the public is almost non-existent. Even when doing public work, she tends to always avoid the spotlight and live/work straight from the shadows. Its where she thrives, afterall.


Born circa 1928, Natalia "Natasha" Romanova was apparently orphaned as a child
when she was trapped in a burning building during an early attack on
Stalingrad by enemy forces. Ivan Petrovitch Bezukhov, a Soviet soldier, found
Natasha in the inferno and rescued her. Although Ivan kept a close eye on
Natasha as she grew, by the late 1930s she had attracted the attention of
Soviet intelligence, which began her training. In 1941, she was almost
brainwashed into serving the ninja clan the Hand, but was saved by Petrovitch.

Following World War II, Natasha was recruited to become part of the Black
Widow Program, a team of elite female sleeper agents. It was apart of this
group that Natasha was selected for the Russian 'super soldier serem' project
which was the Red Army's equivalent of the same serem Captain America was
administered. Unlike Captain America, however, Natasha has lived out her years
with this serem's gifted life-extending capabilities. She's the only remaining
person known from the Russian project to still be alive today.

During those early days after being given the serem, Natasha studied as a
ballerina to cover for her true occupation as a Russian super spy. The Soviet
state eventually arranged for Natasha to marry Alexi Shostakov, a champion
test pilot. After a few years of a happy marriage, the KGB faked Shostakovs
death in a rocket test; grief for Shostakov drove Natasha's resolve deeper and
she continued her education with the Red Room Academy, finally being appointed
the title of the Black Widow.

Eventually, Romanoff would come to discover the truth about both her orphan
origins as well as the death of her husband. It was the Russian government
that caused both of these. They chose her from birth for a life she had no say
in and this is what caused Romanoff to defect from her homeland and leave its
service. She greatly misses her homeland, but she will always remind herself
of the loss of her family and the family-to-be that were taken from her.

Natasha is currently working for both SHIELD and as a member of the Avengers
team. She's one of the top agents in SHIELD and is doing her best to serve the
Avengers many powerful mambers in being a quality team-mate and support
member. She knows she's not the strongest member of the Avengers, but she also
knows she can do a lot more than they may realize.

Character Details

Natasha is a cold, calculating Spy. Much in contrast with her lighter hearted partner, Hawkeye. An odd team, but they do make an inseparable pair. She holds allegiance and loyalty to heart, as it comes down to the finite details of: Her Job. Her boss has her utmost loyalty, over anything else in her life, including her relationships. Currently, that boss is Director Fury.

Despite how cold she can be, she does know how to wear emotion like an acting mask. She allows what she wants to be seen to show, nothing more, and nothing less. She can turn on and off what she requires: Such as the play of 'fear' in a reverse interrogation she is known so well for to make them think they are winning.

There is very little that would give the woman pause. She is nearly 70, and despite her youthful appearance, she has almost double experience of most of SHIELD's spy agents. She does not flaunt this, however, remaining aloof as necessary. Her true age is something that is her biggest secret, and as such, something she will protect to her dying breath.
