Marvel Legends 3.75" Retro - BLACK WIDOW!

Marvel Legends 3.75" Retro Series - Black Widow - Hasbro 2022

I've grown a great appreciation for Black Widow over the years. When I was a kid, an espionage-themed character character wearing an off-the-rack jumpsuit couldn't hold my attention in a world of bright spandex and otherworldly powers. In my first real job after college, my boss was a Marvel fan and was obsessed with Black Widow. He was even buying expensive Bowen statues of her. He was a smart and insightful guy so his fascination with the character made me start to rethink my stance. About seven years later when she became an Avenger in the MCU, I was initially steamed that they replaced Wasp with someone so boring. But Scarlett Johansson's excellent cinematic portrayal slowly start to wear down my resistance and I started to see the appeal. I've gone back and read a lot of her classic comics and I'm now a fan. I still think her costumes tend to be boring, but there is something iconic about her third outfit - this 1970's look with a black catsuit, big red hair, and gold belt and cuffs.
