I've been patiently waiting for a female in the Marvel Super Hero Adventures line for years. The previous incarnation of Marvel preschool toys, Superhero Squad, had an amazingly complex number of female heroes and villain in the line. I literally have dozens of females on my SHS shelf. The Marvel Super Hero Adventures figures are slightly larger and more durable. I was initially hesitant to jump on board another preschool line after my beloved SHS dwindled to a halt, but then Fisher-Price / Mattel ramped up their DC Superfriends Imaginext line and my hiatus was over. There have been an underwhelming number of females in the DC lines (Catwoman, Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn, and Poison Ivy), but they were still leaps and bounds ahead of the Marvel toys. This Black Widow figure was bought from an eBay seller in China and represents the very first female in the line. Who know how she will be released. Maybe singularly, maybe in a 2-Pack, maybe a big multipack. Only time will tell. Let's check her out!
I think she looks great. I'm really excited for future females: Invisible Woman, Storm, and Elektra seem like shoe-ins for future figures.
Shes' articulated at the head, shoulders, wrists, and her legs are articulated as a single piece.
Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!
Here she is with the Imaginext Catwoman
Here she is with two other Super Hero Adventures figures: Hulk and Lizard.
And here she is with two Marvel Superhero Squad figures: On the Left is the comic version Black Widow, and on the right is the Movie version Black Widow (from Iron Man 2).
