A Russian spy and assassin turned SHIELD Agent and Avenger; Black Widow was trained her whole life to believe in nothing but her orders, and to value no one; not even herself. She can act like a normal person, and that's spooky.
1942: Born in Stalingrad Russia to unknown parents.
1943: Donated by or taken from her parents and placed in the care of a mysterious government agency.
1943-1957: Trained and 'conditioned' unceasingly in the Red Room facilities for the Black Widow Project. She is the standout student of her 'class' most of whom 'wash out'. She is given numerous 'minor' missions - some staged, some not, never telling her which is which - to test her progress and aptitude.
1957: 'Comes of age' with her first kill.
1961: 'Graduates' as the newest Black Widow, and is 'given over' to the KGB. Early on she is established with the cover of a skilled ballerina, and she is made to marry Soviet Test Pilot Alexi Shostakov. After a time, Natasha is informed of Alexi's death during a mission.
1962-2016 Missions redacted. Secrets are stolen and destroyed, facilities and operations sabotaged or destroyed, with little to no trace of a culprit. A few people die who can be linked to the Black Widow. Many people die who can not. Natasha never questions her purpose in life, but privately harbors doubts as to whether someone like her should exist at all. At various points she is frozen in stasis and awoken for assignments and periods of upheaval, or simply to be reindoctrinated to whatever new branch of government has taken power in any given year.
2016: SHIELD sends agent Clint Barton to assassinate Natasha. Through a... complex series of events, Clint chooses to spare Natasha's life and recruits her into SHIELD. A noteworthy portion of the year is spent under observation and questioning.
2017: Natasha is authorized as a SHIELD agent and undertakes continuous successful operations in their service, rapidly becoming one of their most reliable assets, despite any misgivings one might have about her.
2018: Clint is brainwashed by Loki, and Natasha battles to save him and foil Loki's plans, unwittingly participating in the formation of the Avengers. She is made a liason between SHIELD and the Avengers, a task which often functionally makes her part of the team.
2020: Natasha continues to aid the Avengers in heroic fashion, and undertake classified missions for SHIELD in often shadier fashion.
The Heroic Assassin:
Natasha is a paradox in a lot of ways, oweing to her innate morality conflicting with a lifetime of violent conditioning. She values human life, to an extent, but has little trouble shutting that part of her away on a moment's notice to take one away. Raised in an environment that discouraged and stifled individuality, yet trained her to blend in and adapt to any situation - to be whoever she needed to be - Natasha is not totally clear on where the line is between her personality and her performance. In many ways she doesn't know who Natasha Romanova is; but she knows how to pretend to be the Natasha she wants to be. Her composure is so indoctrinated into her that she essentially needs to put on a performance to convey her actual feelings, much less come off as human in any circumstance.
Which is not to say she's berefit of wit or personality. She can be wry, and a bit of a flirt at times, and has little patience for posturing and general nonsense on the job. She is a clever, quick-thinking individual who wants to be something better than she was 'born' to be; with a soft spot for children and an almost pathologically fierce protective instinct over the few people she's let get anywhere close to her - or at very least, who've let her get close to them. She is not overly concerned with the moral implications of many of her missions at least insofar as they don't directly hurt innocent people. Her definition of 'hurt' maybe narrower than yours.
She's a person who wants somewhere to belong after patriotism failed her; and to an extent will be who she thinks she needs to be to make that happen while protecting what's important to her.
Natasha is the product of a lifetime of physical conditioning and discipline, and the result is a body capable of olympic-level feats of agility, stamina, and athleticism; possessing far more strength than her smaller frame would suggest, and the ability to forego sleep for days on end without any clear detrimental effects.
Due to her biological and technological conditioning, she has uncommon strength speed and stamina for her build, though not outside the range of human limitations. Right at the border, though. She also seemingly does not age at a normal rate, appearing youthful despite what should be an advanced age; though cryogenic freezing has muddied those particular waters somewhat.
Natasha Romanova is capable of acrobatic feats that shame the average human's capabilities, and some that would broadly be considered impossible, such is her conditioning and coordination.
Natasha has a lifetime of training in the use, maintenance, and construction of most human-made firearms on Earth, and can use them with terrifying accuracy.
Natasha is a whirlwind of death when it comes to melee combat, able to decimate larger opponents with pinpoint strikes and keep them off balance, frequently while using her opponents own bodies as the manuevering point to keep herself out of their reach. She is not durable, but she is... inconveniant to hit.
Natasha is an expert at getting herself places where no one wants her to be without getting caught - when possible. Success can vary depending on the intel and preparation afforded to her.
Natasha is fluent in most major human languages, and can accurately affect accents to accompany most of them; though local dialects can slip through the cracks.
Natasha's accuracy with most long range weapons - thrown or otherwise - is uncanny.
Natasha is proficient in the use of a number of melee weapons - staffs, knives, tonfa and long blades - but she would not consider herself a master of any of them.
If it needs pillars and a foundation to stand, Natasha pretty much knows how to make it collapse. If she can't break whatever needs breaking or burn whatever needs burning, well, that's what explosives are for.
Natasha was born and raised inside a world of subterfuge, and was hand crafted to operate in it to the exclusion of a normal life. She is an immaculate actress, proficient in disguise; creating and deciphering coded message and double-speak, and remaining unseen when needed (and possible). She is the culmination of Russia's latest efforts to create the best possible operative.
Natasha is a semi-official member, frequent ally - and dare she say, friend - of the organization of Super Heroes known as the Avengers, and can conceivably call on their support if needed.
The majority of Natasha's life was dedicated to the world of spycraft and assassination, and she still has many contacts in government, organized crime, and the shady area in between. How forthcoming those contacts will be after her defection is another matter, but she can access them if she needs to.
The bands on the wrists of Natasha's costume are a series of cartridges containing, among other things; a 100-foot spring loaded cable, a communication device, tear gas pellets, and a few charges worth of a projectile electric blasts capable of stunning or incapacitating men within a range of 20 feet, with diminishing returns for distance.
Goggles and Mask:
Tony Stark created a sleek, high tech pair of goggles for Natasha that feeds her adjustable amounts of UI information on elements in her field of vision/immediate surroundings, as well as allowing her to see in various visual spectrums - such and infrared/thermal vision, and night-vision - on command. It covers her ears and feeds them audio input. In addition, the goggles have two additional modes; one which extends it into a 'mask' that covers her entire face. In this mode, and the next, it feeds her a supply of air, though not to the extent of breathing under water; and it also amplifies and slightly filters her voice to adjustable levels. The third mode causes it to completely encase her head like a full head mask. While not as protective as as a helmet, it does completely obscure her identity, giving her greater security when Avengers business forces her to appear in view of cameras without compromising her ability to operate undercover. She sees through two red lenses over her eyes, with three more red 'eyes' on each side give her the appearance of eight narrow, angular spider-eyes. The intensity of the glow can be adjusted, or turned off entirely.
Natasha usually carries at least one light-weight pistol on her at any given time; two if she can get away with it.
Natasha is a four-year agent of SHIELD, and has access to the various resources on offer from that organization; though it's debatable how much they truly trust her with.
Natasha keeps a number of compact resources on her person, often amounting to garotte wire, plastique explosives, and whatever else she may anticipate needing for a mission.
Natasha was raised around people who could die or vanish during training on a moment's notice; spent her life killing and watching government powers and handlers replace each other without her noticing; and the one man she was encouraged to get close too died suddenly and unceremoniously without even the decency of leaving a body behind. Getting attached to people - or even a homeland - and considering them as something that couldn't just disappear at any moment, can be a bit of a challenge. When she does, their loss can seem almost impossible to cope with.
Natasha can only fire as many bullets as she can carry, and once she's out, she's out.
Natasha has done things that would turn your hair white, and she would very much prefer that most people never learn of them. Furthermore there may be times when the 'right' thing to do is much farther from her mind than the 'expediant' thing to do in regards to an enemy or problem.
Black Widow is a rogue asset from Russia's deadliest known organization. If they don't want her back, they probably want her dead. Their agents could be anywhere or anyone, and there's no guarantee that their indoctrination of Natasha didn't leave behind and hitherto unknown trigger commands.
