I think it’s more likely that MCU Natasha was born in 1984. Yes, the KGB collapsed in 1991, but the Red Room has survived in comic book canon both as a legitimate entity under the GRU umbrella and as an independent shadow organization with much of its old KGB loyalties. The reference to the KGB is probably, mostly because that is the Russian acronym US audiences can speak. But it’s not very hard to make the KGB live on after their real world dissolution in a world where the Nazi super-science division is a current credible threat.

On the other hand I have a lot of trouble trying to make some secret other birthdate fit the story logic of this film. Natasha is positioned as a modern foil to Steve. It’s not just that she teases him about his age; she lives and breathes in the ambiguities that only stretch him paranoid. She takes a contemporary approach to a contemporary reality, he is old-fashioned, they find a way to meet in the middle, shifting both of them for the better. The screenwriters in interviews have been pretty upfront about this, the reasons they used her character, and how they meant for her to look her age.

The other thing is that the files Zola had access to are SHIELD’s files, HYDRA’s files. Those are the files Natasha releases to the world at great personal cost, the culmination of her character arc. She gives up her secrets, willingly. She chooses truth over shadow, just once. And to give her some sort of double top secret still hidden ultralife just negates that heroism. It makes her past more important than where she’s going.

That said, I don’t think you’re overthinking, and I’m sure other fans will have fun reading the same scenes differently than me, and that is fine. When I started reading comics and fell into Natasha, she wasn’t born in 1928, she didn’t have stealth anti-aging powers. I don’t mean this in a hipster nerdcred got-there-first way. But I think how and when we first meet characters has an impact on how we see them, how we think they should be. I do not have a huge problem if the MCU winds up leaning a different direction, but a lot of people do, and I wonder if that might be a kind of explanation.

I do think, well, it’s not as though Marvel is only twisting Natasha this way, trying to diminish her. Nick Fury has a much larger WWII past. He’s the leader of the original Howling Commandos, and that seems to be gone, too. But the scenes we got of him in CA:TWS, about his grandfather, his old neighborhood, eyeing the cops in his car— those things might not be strictly true, they might not be the same, but they reveal a lot about that character in this world.

The story goes that Natasha saw her world burn down in Stalingrad ‘43, that she was born into fire and chaos. Maybe in this beginning she saw her country collapse, Moscow ‘91. I’m worried about how they will tell her origin, whether they will ever get around to it. But I know that if they do it won’t be the same— it will be that character in this world.

THE ONLY THING THAT IS CHALLENGING ABOUT WRITING A FEMALE CHARACTER IS THAT WE LIVE IN A PATRIARCHY THAT HAS INUNDATED US WITH ONE-DIMENSIONAL FEMALE CHARACTERS THAT ONLY REINFORCE MISOGYNISTIC VALUES SO YOU HAVE TO CHALLENGE THE IDEAS THAT YOU’VE BEEN FED.

And if you’re not already challenging other people’s ideas, you are being lazy in your writing. 

Other than that, there’s no mystery to writing good female characters.

Because we’re just as people as men.

Recluse Origins - Assvengers/Mainverse

Faina studied Natasha’s face looking for any indication of trickery or deceit. Though she knew the woman would be well-trained in concealing her tells, she wanted to find something to indicate that the words were untrue. 

She was accustomed to weaving through webs of deceit to determine the meaning behind the lies. She was not accustomed to truth.

Sequestered in an underground bunker, Sannikova’s work in cyber-espionage, virus and trojan coding, kept her out of the field. That is, until Natasha Romanoff discovered the teenage girl on her own mission.

Anonymous asked: Do the Natasha references on Agents of SHIELD irritate you as much as they do me? The 'best scores since Romanoff' and 'I don't even think Romanoff could pull that off' comments seem to me like Whedon and co. trying to push their OCs and making them seem awesome by undermining an established character.

fuckyeahblackwidow:

From what you describe, anon, it seems like “Romanoff” is being used as secret agent slang for the best there is, the pinnacle. And that doesn’t really bother me, no.

But the true secret to my Agents of SHIELD zen is that I’ve never watched Agents of SHIELD.
