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.

Welcome to us joyously counting down the days until Captain America: The Winter Soldier lands in theatres for real and for sure. We’ll be saluting the various leads this week, so kick back, relax, and get your stars&stripes ready because we’re leaving no man behind.

With a long winter, third time’s the charm. Another play from her vintage past, but we’re getting more modern by the minute — this is Black Widow keeping a superheroic black sleekness on her cityscape sleeve.

jessiicadrew asked: Does her belt have any function? because i've never seen her using it, and theres some bars on her back between the circles that i don't get a reason for that lol

The bars that you mention on the back are extra batteries for her Widow’s Bite. If you notice, they’re the exact same size as the sections on her wrists. It’s all spelled out in the black jumpsuit’s very first appearance, back when superheroes had to explain getting dressed out loud to no one in particular and with lots of exclamation points:

This chain belt I’ve added will be more than decorative! It’ll hold my spare web-line… and store the powerlets for my Widow’s Bite! There! With my modified wrist-shooters in position, I’m ready for anything!

Here in this story the circles hold extra wire, too.  In the 1982 original Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe, the belt was described as having her belt of “metallic disc-cartridges” was described as containing “a plastic explosive equivalent to 4 pounds of TNT. So, it’s also full of bombs.

Neither of these details are remembered particularly often in comics, especially since the look of her belt varies so much from artist to artist. Sometimes the belt develops strange new powers: in Fear Itself: the Black Widow Natasha has a signal jamming device hidden in one of the belt sections. 

I, for one, would like to see her carry around some kind of anti-mindwipe spray.

With a nod toward her femme fatale of Tales of Suspense past, nothing says spy game like all black against snowy bright backdrop to really confuse the enemy. But channeling Black Widow on a fashion front is like crushing winter beneath your combat heel, and I’m happy to oblige.
