ok so i was watching this gif carefully
and when i first saw it i was like “aww Nat jumping into steve’s lap that’s so cute she’s like AHH STEVE SAVE ME” and then i was thinking ‘well she probably realized he’s way stronger than she is and could help shield her if they crashed’
but then i kept watching it and i noticed how she immediately pulls him forward
and first i thought it was the momentum of her jump but you can clearly see in the gif how she gets settled (quickly) THEN pulls him close to her
and then i realized
that is a bullet hole.
Nat somehow knew EXACTLY where Steve was gonna get shot at, jumped up into his seat, and saved him
Natasha Fucking Romanoff
she didn’t just jump in the front to save steve, tws shot at her first
she also pushed sam away from the bullet bc she knew he’s next
all of this in the span of 3 seconds how fast do u think her brain works i mean DAMN
DANG. Y’all don’t miss anything, do you?
This is really excellent though because this is clearly Natasha’s training at work. You know what she’s thinking here is “how would I do this hit?” And of course the answer is you work back to front. Your targets, after all, are basically fish in a barrel, they’re stuck in a metal box and most people’s instincts are that being in the car is safer than being out (which is probably true in a lot of cases but “safer” isn’t anything like “actually safe”), so they more than likely wont stop and try to run, at least in those first couple of seconds. From there, you want to neutralize your targets working forward - back seat first, then front passenger, and driver last because you don’t want to deal with the car swerving around because the driver has a hole in his head.

THIS IS COSPLAY?
THIS IS PERFECT!
WHOSOEVER HOLDS THIS HAMMER, IF SHE BE WORTHY, SHALL POSSESS THE POWER OF THOR.
ACTUAL GODDESS NATASHA ROMANOV
I always knew she was one :D
As is so often true of comics, a lot of the awesome is in the details. Natasha can’t move the Hammer when she first reaches it. What makes her worthy at the end when she apparently wasn’t worthy just seconds before? Look at panels 2-3 again. Natasha’s got that big ogre right on top of her with his club already going back to strike … and instead of shooting it to save herself, she uses her last shot to bring down the flying reptile that’s chasing that fleeing shuttle. That act of self-sacrifice in the face of certain death is what made her worthy.

I had a brain fart today. Though I’m pretty sure someone else has thought and done something a lot better about it.
Hot Toys Declassifies Its ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ Black Widow Figure [X]
Comic-verse Black Widow was a professional ballerina, which is all sorts of awesome.
Done with a few refs. Trying to learn new things.
I AM THE BLACK SWAN.
I am in love with this.
Jeph Loeb announced a Black Widow/Punisher animated film about a year back, so I wasn’t surprised to see it being officially announced and trailered and everything. I was surprised to see Jennifer Carpenter doing Natasha’s voice, but a good kind of surprise. And then I found another good surprise on Marvel.com:"Avengers Confidential: Black Widow & Punisher" was directed by Kenichi Shimizu, with a story by Marjorie Liu and screenplay by Mitsutaka Hirota.
I am going to repeat that with italics: they got Marjorie Liu to write this thing.
Also, look how Nat is posed on the cover: not only is she all the way zipped up but not in the infamous butt shot! She gets a strong pose just as the male characters do! And she gets front and centre profile!
