As she grew up she learnt ballet, chose the career of espionage and is then recruited by the K.G.B. to become their first operative known as Black Widow. Then she fought HYDRA, met Logan for a second time years later, dated Iron Man and then she met up with Hawkeye, who were unaware of her K.G.B. origins and was a criminal back then. He eventually joined The Avengers and Natasha remained an ally while working for S.H.I.E.L.D.

To go solo, she broke up with Hawkeye and start fighting crime in New York, where she found Daredevil and they dated for a while. She moved with the crowd of Ghost Rider, Hercules and the X-Men’s Angel and Iceman to form The Champions, which didn’t last long. She again partnered up with Daredevil to stop The Hand from getting their hands on the corpse of Elektra.

As a member of The Avengers, she led the team many times and slowly develops a crush on Captain America but ended up sleeping with Tony. Her role as the leader of the team finally came to an end during “Onslaught” event. Throughout the crisis of Civil War, Secret Invasion, Dark Reign and Siege, Natasha is proven to be pretty instrumental for her team.
