Black Widow, along with half of Manhattan, receives viral spider powers in the animated series Marvel's Spider Man - Spider Island Part 2. We don't see her use spidey-sense, but she slings web, crawls on walls, leaps high into the air and punches like a champion,

There is no inconsistency with her middle name if her name isn't following the general Russian naming convention. Her full name is, as we find out from Arnim Zola, Natalia Alianovna Romanoff, and Red Skull is simply saying that her father's name is Ivan, not that that is her middle name. People do have different middle names from their parents' first names, ...

Kind of. In the Ultimate Marvel universe/line of comics, the original (Natasha Romanova) Black Widow dies, and a couple of other characters take up the name while working for SHIELD. One of the other characters who takes the name Black Widow is the Ultimate version of Spider-Woman, a female clone of Peter Parker who most definitely has spider powers. ...

As far as I'm aware Black Widow has never had physical Spider-Man-like powers. However, in Amazing Spider-Man Vol. 1 Issue 86 Black Widow upgrades her costume and equipment. As part of that process she upgrades her Widow's Line: an imitation of Spider-Man's web shooters. Click image to enlarge. Her suits have also been shown to be able to cling to walls ...

They were always close... Well to start with, she and Barton were clearly close during Avengers 1, moreso than you seem to imply. It's true that she feels indebted to him, but they also act with quite a bit of tenderness after Barton sheds Loki's influence. They're clearly more than business partners, they're friends, or at least close companions. That ...

The Marvel Cinematic Universe (Earth-19999) has not given us a complete backstory on the Black Widow for their universe, but in the Marvel canon universe (Earth-616) she has had the equivalent of the Super-Soldier serum (a Russian variant) given to her making her the female equivalent to Captain America. Natasha has received the Red Room's variant of the ...

Indeed they did. In Captain America Vol 5 No.27.... Marvel Wikia The Black Widow recognizes the Winter Soldier and is shocked to see that he is still active. The Widow and the Soldier once shared a romance with each other back in the days when they were both tools of the Soviet Union under Colonel Karpov. Now, the two are forced to fight one another. ...

She did lose someone, in a way. She was very close to Hawkeye, and they kind of drifted apart when he went rogue. When she meets him in the alley, she tells him something the following: Clint Barton: Don't give me hope. Natasha Romanoff: I'm sorry I couldn't give it to you sooner. Avengers: Endgame meaning she tried (but likely failed) to appease him, and ...

Black Widow fights Proxima Midnight twice in the movie--once in Europe early on, and once in Wakanda in the climax of Infinity War. I'm going to assume you mean the latter, in that as far as I can tell, she barely trades a blow with Midnight in the former--Captain America meets her spear-to-spear. (Nat does soundly beat Corvus Glaive, which is another ...

No one In the MCU Nat doesn't really have a love interest, most of the time.She flirts with Cap in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and they kiss but that's just to avoid drawing attention to themselves. Later on we see she's close to Hawkeye, however, that is a close friend friendship and not a love interest. She's even the only Avenger to know about ...

Firstly, she was close to Nick Fury and somewhat close to Maria Hill so having them be dusted must be hurting her. On top of that she lost, she tried her hardest to stop Thanos but lost so is feeling some guilt towards that and is sad about what happened. I mean 5 years is a very short amount of time to get over what actually happened, some people never get ...

As noted in comments, Natasha Romanov is a "peak human" -- about as physically capable as any woman her size can be (due to accident of birth plus long term rigorous training). Beyond that, she has "heart" -- an absolute unwillingness to give up or admit defeat. She has an extreme level of training in unarmed and hand weapon combat, and a willingness (...

She didn't is the short answer. If you look closely at the scenes in Avengers: Infinity War, she never fights Proxima Midnight on her own. Not really. There is never a real one-on-one fight between Proxima and Black Widow. In their first fight she is aided by Captain America. And if you look closely he is doing all the "heavy" stuff like locking ...

There is only one option regarding middle name in Russian (and in all Slavonian countries) - in fact it is patronymic but not a second name. And it always equals to the [name of the FATHER] + [possessive ending] like "son of" "daughter of". Regarding "Alianovna" - it sounds like a joke or might be a bad transcription. There is no such Slavonian name (at ...

According to the accepted answer to the question Is Black Widow genetically engineered or enhanced in Avengers?: The Marvel Cinematic Universe (Earth-19999) has not given us a complete backstory on the Black Widow for their universe, but in the Marvel canon universe (Earth-616) she has had the equivalent of the Super-Soldier serum (a Russian variant) ...

Romanoff is the Anglicisation of the Russian surname Romanov/Romanova. Because of Anglicisation, the gender attached to the surname is lost in translation. Now because she defects to the west, it is an accurate change in the surname. The same has happened with the Romanoff Family Association, they anglicanized because of what little survived (distant ...

The MCU hints at a past but doesn't confirm any interaction as the comics do. BLACK WIDOW: I know how much Barnes means to you...I really do... BLACK WIDOW [to Bucky Barnes]: You could at least recognize me In the film, The Winter Soldier, Natasha Romanoff (aka Black Widow) tells Captain America that the Winter Soldier (aka Bucky Barnes) shot her five ...

In the comics, Barton is employed under Stark and then begins committing crimes to impress Widow. Clint then ends up fighting Stark, but ends up employed under SHIELD instead. He is then sent to kill Nat, but can't bring himself to do so, and they end up in a sexual relationship for a short while, but then separate and become partners in their work, ...

I don't believe there is an answer in the MCU currently, this is meant to be one of those things that happened before and we just found out about it. That said, I think the premise of your question is wrong. Natasha went to talk to Loki specifically to interrogate him about his plans. All the things she said about her relationship with Clint were said to ...
