A fucking HAND GUN!! How is that even helpful? It has, like, 12 bullets and then you have to reload? AHHH, someone give her an AK-47 or something. At least something that makes her more of an equal to the rest of the group. This really bugs me.
No, see, you got it wrong.
Black Widow uses a handgun so the rest of the group can catch up.
This is the woman who PLAYED the god of LIES, mischief, and TRICKERY.
Like Beethoven. On a PIANO.
She doesn’t need a bigger gun. Did you see what she was shooting at? Weak points, eyes, important vital bits. One bullet each did the trick. Also notice the BRACELETS she has made out of extra AMMO. And let’s not forget that it was she who went and got to the portal and deactivated it.
And that she did this entirely without super-soldier serum, high tech armor, elemental god powers, or gamma radiation.
Black Widow is scary and amazing and awesome. And she will end you with her little guns.
So I reblogged this yesterday and I still stand by the comments but while looking over yesterday’s posts this morning I remembered that Natasha does in fact have a little bit of super-soldier serum in her. It doesn’t negate her natural badassness but just because the comment above does say that she didn’t use super-soldier serum, I figured that it would be important to mention that she does in fact have some super-soldier serum in her.
