Background

Natasha Romanoff was Ivan Liebich's daughter and was involved in a hospital fire. When she was a young girl she became a Russian spy. Later in her career, she caught the attention of S.H.I.E.L.D. They sent Hawkeye to kill her, but Barton refused and Natasha had since owed Hawkeye her life. He persuaded her to start a new life and become an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.

She became Tony Stark's new aid at Stark Industries under the alias "Natalie Rushman", but was later revealed to Stark by Nick Fury that she was actually working for him, looking after Iron Man for recruitment purposes. She later stormed Hammer's facility looking for Ivan Vanko as the Black Widow freed War Machine from Vanko's control.

Natasha was captured by Russians who managed to figure out she was a spy. In secret, she was getting the information she needed from them. Agent Coulson called her, informing her that she was needed and Hawkeye had been compromised. She broke free, turned the tables on her captors and was tasked with recruiting Bruce Banner to track the Tesseract, which she was successful. She later helped Captain America and Iron Man apprehend Loki. She used her interrogating skills to get Loki to reveal his escape plan, which was to unleash The Hulk. During the attack on the Helicarrier, she attempted to talk with Banner, but failed and tried to outrun the angry Hulk, until she was slammed against a wall, but was saved by Thor. She then confronted Hawkeye, and knocked him out, returning him from Loki's spell.

She later joined the newly formed Avengers team, which also consisted of Captain America, Iron Man, The Hulk, Thor, and Hawkeye, in an attempt and repel Loki and his Chitauri army that was trying to take over the Earth. She took out many of the Chitauri, and rode one of the Chitauri's flying vehicles to the top of Stark Tower, and used the built-in shut-off switch using Loki's staff. She saw Thor return Loki and the Tesseract to Asgard, and afterward returned with Hawkeye to the services of S.H.I.E.L.D.

In the wake of the Avengers successfully defeating Loki, Romanoff had continued her work with S.H.I.E.L.D., this time working with Captain America. While working together, Romanoff and Rogers uncovered a conspiracy following an assassination attempt on Nick Fury, which had eventually led to them discovering that HYDRA had somehow been infiltrating their entire organization. Despite the efforts of the Winter Soldier to stop them, Romanoff helped expose Alexander Pierce's evil schemes to the world, which also resulted in all of her own morally dubious history being revealed. As a result, Romanoff was forced into dropping off the grid again to begin rebuilding her cover.

Romanoff eventually rejoined the Avengers, working to bring down various HYDRA cells across the world and assisting in the capture of their leader, Baron Wolfgang von Strucker. However, before she could form a romantic relationship with Banner, the rogue artificial intelligence Ultron was created by Stark and Banner, forcing Romanoff and the rest of their team to join together and defeat him. Despite being captured, Romanoff was able to inform the team of Ultron's location on Sokovia, resulting in a final battle in which the Avengers had defeated Ultron once and for all. Unlike most members of the original Avengers, Natasha and Steve Rogers also start training the new Avengers: Falcon, Scarlet Witch, War Machine, and Vision.

A year after defeating Ultron, the Avengers fight over a new law passed by the government called the Sokovia Accords. It requires the superheroes to be controlled by the government. Tony Stark agrees with the law while Steve Rogers, who is also trying to protect his friend, Bucky Barnes, disagrees with the law. The Avengers split into two sides; Black Widow takes Tony's side with Black Panther, War Machine, Vision, and Spider-Man even though her friends Hawkeye and Steve take the other side. As the two Avengers' factions fought against each other, Romanoff betrayed Iron Man's team in order to assist Captain America to find the instigator of the team's fight. As a result, Black Widow had to escape from the government for aiding her old friend, while being on the run, Romanoff soon joined the fugitive Rogers and Wilson in stopping terrorists.

When the threat of Thanos approached Earth, Romanoff, Rogers, and Wilson protected Vision who had the Mind Stone, which Thanos was after. They later defended Wakanda from the attack and managed to kill all of Thanos' forces but unfortunately Thanos effortlessly overpowered Romanoff and the other heroes when he personally came to Wakanda and destroyed half of all life in the universe with the assembled Infinity Gauntlet, with Romanoff being one of the survivors.

After meeting Captain Marvel, Romanoff was part of the Ambush on Thanos in a try to retrieve the Infinity Stones and undo the Titan's snap, with no success.

Some time later and after 5 years, Widow leads the Avengers, now formed by OkoyeRocketNebula, War Machine and Captain Marvel.

In order to undo the Decimation, the remaining Avengers split up in teams to retrieve all Infinity Stones from an alternate timeline. Romanoff was sent to retrieve the Soul Stone on Vormir with Hawkeye. Having been told by Red Skull a sacrifice was required for the Stone, she and Hawkeye fought to be the one sacrificed, ultimately resulting in the both dangling off a cliff and Romanoff on the lower end, holding onto Hawkeye's hand. Romanoff then shakes herself loose, leading to her death in exchange for the Soul Stone.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes

She is a member of the Avengers that is called upon to stop Loki, Dr. Doom and the team they assembled from collecting the cosmic bricks to build the Doomray of Doom and ultimately Galactus.

  • Black Widow's design resembles her appearance in concept art for The Avengers.
  • She appeared in 6 sets to date, and 4 of them feature a Quinjet (Three normal sized ones and micro-sized ones for the Helicarrier). 3 of them include a motorcycle.
