Black Widow

(Natalia Romanova) (Profile #1 - 1927-1946)

An unreasonably thorough explanation about the Black Widow (Natalia Romanova) from the origins to the end of the Great Patriotic War. Buckle up, it's something of a ride. As of January of 2019, this profile has received yet more polishing, and was cleft due to length.

Miranda Lawson
