Infinity War Event Revelations[]

Black Widow confronted Nick Fury yet again about the secrets he's hiding, and he finally confessed that he's from an alternate universe. He told her about the fate of the Prime Universe, and everything he knew about the Avengers Academy universe.

Character Relationships[]


Ayesha is Black Widow's favorite villain because she's ruthless.

Captain America[]

Natasha almost admitted that she enjoys training with Steve.

Chitauri Soldier[]

Black Widow helped the Chitauri Soldier fit in and adjust to Earth, starting with the proper way to hold a weapon.

Cosmo the Spacedog[]

Black Widow questioned Cosmo about how he became telepathic, and the head of Knowhere Security. He refused to tell her, and she respected him for guarding his secrets.

Dum-Dum Dugan[]

Black Widow breaks the news to Dum-Dum Dugan that he was killed on a mission fifty years ago, and that he's now a Life-Model Decoy.


Amora is mean to everyone at the Academy, including Natasha. Natasha has admitted that she doesn't hate Enchantress as much as she should.


Natasha is vaguely threatening towards Sam, as she is towards everyone. Sam insisted on joining Natasha to infiltrate a Hydra base. The mission seemed too easy and he confronted her, saying she either really hates him or really likes him and wants him to be her boyfriend. She gave him an evasive answer, not committing to either. Later, they went on a date at Club A, but Black Widow implied that it was for her own purposes against Fury. After Falcon got upset, she admits that her supposed reasoning may have not been true. Later, after Falcon goes on a study date with Ms. Marvel, Natasha appeared to be jealous.


In all his years exploring the multiverse, the Grandmaster never met anyone as genuinely apathetic as Black Widow.


Clint and Natasha used to date. According to Clint, they broke up because he's "an idiot." Even with the end of their relationship, Kate tells Natasha that Clint can't stop thinking and talking about her. After Clint joins Avengers Academy, Wasp swears that she's never seen Black Widow smile more.

When Clint's hearing aids break, Natasha was frustrated with him for feeling sorry about himself instead of fixing the problem. Afterwards, she told him how much his bad attitude and refusal to let others help bothered her. She then partnered up with him to help regular people with everyday problems.

Iron Man[]

Tony flirted with her a lot, but she turned him down. She once went on a fake date with him, but admitted at the end it was only to find out information, and she didn't have romantic feelings for him.

Jemma Simmons[]

Black Widow and Jemma Simmons bond over their admiration for Peggy Carter.


Loki and Natasha worked together on various missions, and according to Wasp, there might be something else going on there.

Misty Knight[]

Black Widow and Misty Knight previously teamed up to fight assassins in Harlem.

Nick Fury[]

Black Widow doesn't trust Fury and believes he's hiding something from them. He finally told her his secrets during the Infinity War Event.

Nico Minoru[]

Black Widow realized Nico Minoru was pushing herself and her powers too hard, and encouraged her to learn when to take breaks.

Pepper Potts[]

Pepper Potts recruited Natasha to the Academy.

Red Hulk[]

Black Widow is Red Hulk's favorite Avenger because she's so quick to resort to violence in order to get what she wants.


Natasha asks Singularity for help finding Thanos. When this draws Thanos' attention, Natasha promises to protect her from him. Singularity calls Natasha her "scary friend."

Tiger Shark[]

Black Widow infiltrated Pet Avengers Academy and spied on Tiger Shark, confirming his plans to wake Fin Fang Foom.


When Viv questioned how to form friendships, Black Widow advised her that it's important to be self-confident enough to be comfortable with or without friendships.


Janet seems to have a bit of a crush on Natasha, as she frequently comments on how cool Natasha is.


Natasha is voiced by Alison Brie.

  • [whispered] "Can you keep a secret?"
  • "Follow me. And do exactly as I say."
  • "Forget you ever saw this."
  • "Good to know there's at least one competent person on my side."
  • "How do I know you're not a double agent?"
  • "I'd ask why I'm the only one taking this serious, but your answer would just annoy me."
  • "I'd rather work alone."
  • "I'm. Just. Peachy."
  • "It's...not that I don't trust authority. It's just that I don't trust anyone."
  • "Let's find what this place is hiding!"
  • "Please don't make me hurt you."
  • [loud sigh] "The things I do for spying..."
  • "Tch. What're you looking at?"

Gratitude Lines[]

  • "I owe you one. Let me know if you're ever about to be assassinated."
  • "Thanks. I guess you aren't completely useless..."
  • "Thanks. You might be the one person here I respect."
