by Gary Catig
We have already revealed that a new Black Widow, inspired by the upcoming Marvel studios film, would be joining the fray in Marvel Contest of Champions. Kabam has provided more information on their newest character including a quick bio of her in-game story.
Recruited into the KGB at an early age and trained in the Red Room, Natasha Alianovna Romanoff developed into one of the world’s greatest and most ruthless assassins. After drawing the attention of Nick Fury, she was recruited to join S.H.I.E.L.D. at Clint Barton’s recommendation, even going on to become a founding member of The Avengers. Following the events of The Avengers Civil War, Romanoff is forced to confront the darkness of her past in the Red Room and the possibility of future generations of Black Widow assassins.
In addition, the developer shared two videos on their YouTube page. The first is a showcase on all her special moves.
Then, there is also a deeper dive into what Black Widow brings to the contest. As a refresher, you can find her character spotlight here with all her abilities, history, strengths and weaknesses.
