Growing up in Communist Russia, Natasha Romanoff wanted nothing more than to become a ballerina. But when she was recruited by the Russian secret police, the KGB, her life changed forever. Working for a time as a KGB operative, the Black Widow fought against many American heroes; but she soon changed her ways, joining the super hero team of Avengers Having had affiliations with that super group as well as Daredevil and the espionage organization known as S.H.I.E.L.D., the Black Widow is an expert in many weapons as well as various forms of martial arts. Utilizing her skills and special equipment, the Black Widow now works alone as a freelance adventurer.
Presented here as she appeared in the classic MARVEL FANFARE #11, the Black Widow seems perfectly suited for her business as a spy. Returning to Russia on a secret mission for the espionage unit of S.H.I.E.L.D., the Widow is discovered and then falsely accused of murder. Barely escaping her Russian pursuers, the Widow returns to her headquarters empty handed but with the hope that the answers she seeks can be found still -- and so she leaves for Hong Kong to face the challenge of a mysterious opponent.
