Marvel Champions: Black Widow

Updated: Nov 24, 2020

Spy, assassin, hero, Black Widow embodies all these traits and more. Natasha Romanov joins Marvel Champions as a fully fledged Justice hero, bringing with her a new and powerful card type, preparations. But how will the designers utilize her spy persona and reflect it in the game mechanics? Join me for a deep dive into the latest hero pack for Marvel Champions.

Black Widow/Natasha Romanov

Like Black Panther last week Black Widow enters the game as a versatile hero with 2’s across her stats and a very human 9 health. Her hand size of 5 is very reasonable, especially when paired with her abundance of preparation cards. Her hero ability is also pretty cool providing an always on effect that deals a damage each time you trigger a preparation card and because this is direct damage it neatly circumvents abilities like Guard or Retaliation.
