Black Widow Movie - YELENA BELOVA!

Marvel Legends - Crimson Dynamo Wave - Yelena Belova (Movie) - Hasbro 2020

My first exposure to the Yelena Belova version of Black Widow was actually an earlier Marvel Legends figure back in 2004's Series 08. The regular Natasha Romanoff release had a blonde Yelena Belova variant that I just assumed was a classic character I knew nothing about. But it turns out she was relatively new and had just debuted in the Marvel Knights imprint in 1999. Since then she's donned a few other aliases, most notably Crimson Widow. I know in the comics she eventually became a Super-Adaptoid that could mimic the powers of her foes. I kind of doubt the MCU would allow any one character to have that much power, so I assume she is just being groomed to be the new Black Widow. Johanssen will probably retire from the MCU eventually while Florence Pugh is just in the early stages of her career. I just saw Florence in Midsommar and thought she was terrific. This face sculpt doesn't do her justice, but I have a feeling this is just the first Yelena figure of many. Let's check her out below!

Short-haired females in the Marvel Legends line always look pretty creepy from the rear view. That neck and peg system could definitely be tweaked and look a hell of a lot better.

Yelena comes with a pair of alternate hands and two handguns.

Yelena comes with the Torso, Shoulders, and Backmount Build-a-Figure pieces for Crimson Dynamo.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here is Yelena with her wave-mate, Natasha.
