Natasha Romanoff—Black Widow

The last Avenger to be updated to my own standards of care, Black Widow is now available over at Savage MCU! I like to think I did a pretty good job with her; she's a slightly higher power level to accommodate for more Edges and Skills, and her gear is greatly expanded upon. Overall, I'm pretty happy with it.
I've decided to tackle both Avengers without their own full-length film at the same time. Being that they're both much less powerful than the other Avengers, it seems like a reasonable call. First we'll tackle the more interesting of the two: Black Widow.

Natasha Romanoff, aka the Black Widow, is a Four Color hero with Super Karma. One of the Avengers that doesn't really possess any super powers, she is a highly-trained ex-Russian spy that was recruited by SHIELD. She was recently given a specially-crafted pair of gauntlets that contain two very potent electrical tasers and powerful shock lines to allow her to swing from place to place.

She has been given a variety of specialized missions, and is held in high regard among other SHIELD agents. Her most notable assignments were to work with Stark as his bodyguard and to assist Captain America just prior to the fall of SHIELD. She is one of the worlds' most successful super spies, fluent in several languages, highly skilled in interrogation and data retrieval, and is a master of hand-to-hand combat.

Now while the close-quarters and data goes to the Black Widow, longer-ranged missions belong to a close friend and old partner of Natasha's...
