Playing with your Expectations
Black Widow is a leftover from the Cold War era comics, so I wasn't sure how she was going to translate into today. The movie alludes to a mind washed, bloody past. But she's reformed now. And works for the USA. America for the win.
Black Widow defnitely isn't as known to the general populace as Wonder Woman (DC) or XMen's Storm, and without a previous origins movie, we really don't know much about her. Romonoff plays the vulnerable, sexy girl in a skin tight suit so that her targets see her as weak and stupid. Her (so far) male targets jump to conclusions and by doing so reveal their secrets to Romonoff. All the while she remains in complete control of the situation. Then she busts out her awesome ass-kicking skills.
