You know her. At least you think you do. We’ve seen those short flashbacks in Age of Ultron. And we all got thrills. But that is it. One of the deepest and darkest backstories of contemporary Marvel we knew nothing about.
If Stan Lee made me choose between dinner with Scarlett Johansson and a copy of Black Widow Forever Red, of course, I would choose the dinner. But I would think it twice.
This first-class spy has one of the most turbulent past ever summon on comics. Or we assume. Once again, we don’t know. Nobody tells us anything.
Set in Eastern Europe, our heroine will have to unravel her past in order to find out who is behind the kidnapping of children all over the continent.
But she won’t be alone. Ava Orlova will suit up as her sidekick. Teenager, missing Russian quantum physicist’ daughter and rescue by Natasha Romanoff. Now under S.H.I.E.L.D. wing, she must help the Black Widow fight against Ivan Somodorov. Who teach her everything she knows, back in the day, at Red Room, Moscow.
The author, Margaret Stohl, is a 1# New York Times best-seller. She’s particularly famous for her female characters, back in the Caster Chronicles series for example. And in this novel she doesn’t disappoint. Capturing Marvel’s tone, she reveals us another facet of the fiction universe we love.
We have heard promises, promises about Black Widow’s movie. Still we wait. Here we have what will probably be it the backbone. The story behind all stories.
As a fan, this is another piece of the puzzle. Complete your collection and read throw one of the roughest backstories in Marvel Universe.
