With all the ease and grace of a striking tiger, Natasha launches herself into the exercise regimen which begins each of her busy days. She has been called one of the most beautiful women in the world. Were there observers here to see her, there would be none to dispute this notion. Her body is lean, firm. It moves to her command born through a lifetime of rigorous training. She moves quickly, one might almost say, easily, through a routine that might well tax the legendary Captain America.
