I do have to note that I have no problem with either of these as neither is inconsistent with how those characters have always been portrayed.

Of course it could also always be explained byEx Nihlo and co. messing with her mind a little when she was their captive on Mars. Which wouldn't shock me, either.

I did notice that she and Shang Chi both got the same type of case. Don't know if hers also said "resilient" on it though.

Resilient just means it's made by Tony Stark, his new company is called that.

I'm sorry, but I simply do not have a problem with Black Widow killing people. Our perception of comic books, as old-timers -- the Black Widow who swings from ropes across rooftops with Daredevil on adventures...that character doesn't exist anymore.

Times have changed. For better or worse, the Avengers are pretty much affiliated with SHIELD now -- hell, they have been for years now. Black Widow carries pistols. Wolverine's a part of the group. And they sanction people.

Do I wish it was the way it was back in the day, back when Egghead's death prompted a trial? Sure I do. Comics were an easier read then, were more fun.

But that era's been gone for at least a decade now, if not longer. I wish it weren't so, but it is, and I think limiting Hickman's interpretation of Black Widow based on an era that has clearly passed is...well, I think it's just not productive or realistic.

It's never really been an issue. Argument over.
