There was a request for some scans of the third issue of the current Liu/Acuna Black Widow book. The thing that works best as a standalone section is the fight with Elektra, so I'm gonna be posting that.

Previously on Black Widow: someone is after Natasha, and has revealed to the government and meta-human community at large that well, Natasha's been keeping tabs on all of them and has used her connections to amass files on pretty much everyone ever. The Avengers are pretty cool with it, but it seems that Elektra is less thrilled.

Natasha is wearing a new hat in every scene of this series, no joke. The next bit is a double page spread I've cut up.

You're wrong, Natasha, heroes versus heroes never happens in the Marvel universe.

And Elektra vanishes into the shadows, even in broad daylight. She's a ninja, you know.

It's sad that I have to mention this, but it really was nice to see that they managed to talk about something besides Matt. They haven't really met before, despite their longstanding ties to the Daredevil franchise— the Elektra in the Murdock Papers arc was later revealed to be a Skrull.

Roughly four pages from Black Widow #3.

I really have to suspend my belief to believe that Black Widow would stand any type of chance against Elektra. Are we certain this isn't a skrull?

Oh well its a nice scene. I'm going to miss Lui on this book

Why? She's an elite hand-to-hand combatant, in the same ballpark as Steve Rogers.

Liu is leaving? What when why?

This is currently my scraggly dog book. It's so underselling but so excellent. It deserves much better.

Oh, great. /sarcasm
And it looks like Swierczynski will be picking it up.

I might just drop this for X-23 then.

Canonically, Natasha is one of the most dangerous unarmed combatants in the MU. In the old Contest of Champions II mini from the late nineties, she soloed X-Force.

Isn't she at a similar combat level as Taskmaster, Wolverine and that ilk (ie one level below steve but still enough to slaughter the Hand in a few days) and also possessing a prototype supersoldier serum? I always forget her full powerset besides: Badass.

She's about as dangerous in a straight-up fight as Daredevil, she has all sorts of spy gadgets, she's not afraid to cheat, and she's been dosed up on all sorts of old Cold War-era Russian quasi-superhuman drugs. I don't think that gives her any powers besides the fact that she looks 20 and she's actually in her seventies or eighties.
