Black Widow may not have been the star of her own film, but it’s her time to shine in a new upcoming comic book series titled Marvel’s The Avengers: Black Widow Strikes. The three-issue limited series will be written by Fred Van Lente and has the red-headed Russian spy heading back to her homeland to deal with an international crisis. Black Widow Strikes is set in the same continuity as the movies and will allow readers to finally see how lethal Scarlett Johansson’s character truly is. “This story takes place between Iron Man 2 and Marvel’s The Avengers,” writer Van Lente said to Marvel.com. “Black Widow is running down some loose ends from ‘Iron Man 2,’ namely some bootleg Stark technology that Justin Hammer made. It’s her and Agent Coulson going into Russia, but you’ll also probably see Nick Fury and the other heroes as necessary.” However, it’s not long before Natasha’s adventure will turn personal. “For this series, I’ve given Black Widow a kind of fan/stalker, a freelance espionage operator who has modelled herself on Black Widow,” explains Van Lente. “She’s attempting to usurp the Black Widow title from Natasha, so these two are in competition with one another.” The comic book will hit shelves in May.
