Friday Night Fights: Shall We Dance?

Natasha Romanoff started out as a villain in the Marvel universe. While movie fans only know her as a SHIELD agent she was actually a Russian spy who tricked and manipulated Hawkeye into becoming a villain before they both reformed. When it comes to kicking butt, taking names, and making sure nobody knows those names, the Black Widow is the agent you call upon. And when SHIELD sends her to find out who has been kidnapping electronics experts she went to microelectronics genius Tony Stark for help…by having him be kidnapped.

However, at this point hitmen were after Tony due to a mysterious client that even the audience wasn’t aware of. I don’t remember who he or she was, but what matters is that an assassin named Hauptmann is here to kill Tony, which makes him harder to kidnap when he’s dead. And so Natasha is trading dance partners like she planned, but not the partner she expected. It’s still a dance of death either way.

BW’s Morning Article Link: Comic To Help Puerto Rico

Actually there will be a few links in this one. Comic creator Edgardo Miranda-Rodriguez is bringing his original character, the Puerto Rican superheroine La Borinqueña to visit the DC Universe in a special comic to benefit Puerto Rico’s cleanup efforts after Hurricane Maria. She’s named after their national anthem, like an American superhero named Star Spangled Banner, but I like the name. I also like her superhero costume. Despite describing himself as a “radical” in this article I still liked the story presented. If you want to know more about her this is her official website. I’m hoping he’s not using this as an opportunity to draw attention to his character, but even if he is the proceeds go to a worthy cause and I kind of want to see her in action.

Of course I said the same thing about America Chavez, and that went terribly. La Borinqueña still looks and sounds cool.
