Femme Fatale Fight: Black Widow vs. Catwoman
Two of the comic book world’s most famous females, Black Widow and Catwoman, possess many of the same skills and abilities – but which would trump the other if they were in an all-out battle? Check out a short synopsis of these vigilante ladies to determine who you think would be victorious over the other!
Natasha Romanoff, better known as Black Widow, was originally introduced in 1964 as a Russian Spy and an enemy of Iron Man. Eventually, Black Widow fled Russia to the United States where she served as a field agent for the spy agency S.H.I.E.L.D. and as a member on the superhero team The Avengers. Black Widow gained her powers through the Red Room’s variant of the Super-Soldier Serum (the serum the United States developed and injected Captain America with). Her body is at the peak of human physical condition, with exceptional strength, stamina, and endurance. Black Widow is also an expert in martial arts; her training includes karate, judo, ninjutsu, and aikido, to name a few. Her extensive military training has led her to become an expert marksmen and weapons specialist, making her a threat to anyone in her path.
Catwoman has been a staple of the Batman franchise since her inception in 1940. As both an enemy and love interest of Batman, Catwoman has proved on a number of occasions that she is capable of combating even someone as powerful as the Dark Knight himself. Although she possesses no true super-powers, Catwoman has proven to be a capable fighter. An extremely skilled gymnast and hand-to-hand combatant, she often neutralizes enemies with her bullwhip and a series of acrobatic kicks and punches. Her costume is outfitted with razor-sharp retractable claws, as well as spring-loaded climbing pitons which allow her to scale nearly any surface. What she lacks in superhuman abilities, she makes up for in intellect, agility, and athletic prowess.
