Fuck Yeah, Black Widow

Fallaces sunt rerum species

Здравствуйте from FYBW, your one-stop tumblr shop for Black Widow news, no-prizing, and oversaturated .gifs. Some MCU, mostly comics. Often overwritten. Always overthinking.

Black Widow created by Lee, Rico and Heck & is © Marvel Entertainment.

Natasha: Clint is so frustrated. I know how personally he takes failure. And I know how stubborn he is about finishing what he starts. My plan was to sneak in and sneak out. But…
Perhaps I could help you with at least one of your problems? Clint: Tasha? We didn’t do nothin’— I swear!
Natasha: Actually, I came because I needed the Thunderbolts’ help!
Clint: Yeah? Whatever we can do, pretty lady!
Bert: Uhm… Exuse me— isn’t anyone concened how she got past our security systems?
Abe: Dude, she’s the Black Widow!

Damn right.

From Thunderbolts #43, by Fabian Nicieza & Kurt Busiek and Mark Bagley.

Clint: They’re not just missiles, are they? I mean, the payload— they’re not nukes?
Natasha: No. They’re not. How did you know I was here?
Clint: ‘Tash, c’mon— I respect you too much not to know. So… why the shadow game—?
Natasha: So that I could do this…
Clint: Ow!

From Hawkeye #8, by Fabian Nicieza and Joe Bennet.

Natasha: I’m proud of you, Clint.
Clint: Yeah?
Natasha: This is a very hard road you have undertaken.
Clint: An’ we’ve been hittin’ a lot of potholes lately, too!
Natasha: Do you regret the endeavor?
Clint: Sure, ‘Tash, there’s days when it’s tough, but overall— this is the best thing I’ve ever done in my entire life!
Natasha: There’s something— someone— else, isn’t there?
Clint: You can tell?
Natasha: I know you. Even though she’s a bit young for you, Songbird seems like a good person…
Clint: Songbird? No— no—
Natasha: Uhm… Jolt is a teenager— and dead! Mach-2 and Atlas don’t seem your type… well, maybe Atlas.
Clint: ‘Tasha!
Natasha: No. Oh please, Clint, tell me it’s not… *sigh* — if falling in love with that harridan weren’t clue enough— it’s obvious now where your sympathies lie.

So NYCC announced not one but two new Avengers lineups featuring Natasha and Clint, who have actually never really been on a team together!! (Ikr? Closest was the confused Avengers non-lineup circa the Crossing.) Since Bagley is drawing one of the books I am using this as an excuse to repost some Thunderbolts, which highlights her real and ongoing respect for him and how far he’s come, casual Clint semi-nudity, and also that Natasha thinks Atlas is maybe his type.
