Since that revival, she has starred in two separate five-part miniseries, both published last year: Black Widow and Web of Black Widow, the latter being a historical series telling a story from Natasha’s first year as a spy. The upcoming effort will be the first time the character has starred in an open-ended series since 2016’s eponymous series and will be the fourth comic book series titled “Black Widow” in the past 10 years.
“Natasha’s fought so many different villains over the years but she’s never had that one definitive villain in her life, but now we’re bringing her past back to haunt her, so to speak, with the Red Guardian,” Marvel editor-in-chief C.B. Cebulski said in the launch trailer for the project. “What Kelly Thompson is doing, pulling together all these amazing elements of Black Widow’s past to bring her in the future, makes it a must-read comic of 2020.”
Black Widow No. 1 is set to be released in April.
