So where to begin? I was hesitant when I first heard Thompson was gonna write Black Widow. Her first 15 issues of Captain Marvel frankly sucked. First ten were too political and the last five were just boring.

Needless to say I was unsure, but I'm a huge Black Widow fan. I've read pretty much everything I could get my hands on. So I took the plunge. While it's nothing compared to the Name of the Rose, Ittsy Bitsy Spider or No Restraints Play — it's a great story showing a much hidden (and oft forgotten) side of Natasha: the side that wants a normal life, motherhood, domestic bliss. And Thompson did it without losing the core feel of Natasha. That pragmatic deadly assassin.

I fell in love with how Thompson wrote a character that's very near and dear to my heart. I've come to the conclusion that higher ups in Marvel told her how to write Carol for the first fifteen issues and that Thompson really shines when she's allowed to work with her own ideas and run with them instead of being forced into a box because politics or coperate mechanision.
