Tania was a serial killer who consumed her prey after sleeping with them. She would be approached by Alchemax CEO Miguel Stone to become a member of their Avengers and would take the code name Black Widow.[1]


After an attempt on Roberta Mendez's life, Stone sent the team to investigate Martin Hargood, who he believed to have hired the assassin. Locating him at a restaurant called Latverian Cuisine, they found him arguing with John Eisenhart. When they ignored Eisenhart's orders to leave, he revealed that he was the vigilante known as The Hulk and attacked the Avengers. After taking the fight outside, the team was confronted by Hulk's teammates, the Defenders.[2]

After settling their differences, the two teams brought Hargood back to Alchemax Tower to be interrogated.. Later, Miguel offered the Defenders a place at Alchemax, but they declined. However, since it was illegal to be a superhero team operating outside of Alchemax, Miguel declared them criminals.[3]

Meanwhile, Hargood had escaped his imprisonment and summoned the Dweller-in-Darkness. During his attack, Black Widow and Hawkeye could do nothing, but watch as the Dweller attacked Nueva York. Simultaneously, Miguel had allowed the Defenders to intervene without being arrested and they defeated both Hargodd and the Dweller. Later, she was present when Miguel undeclared the Defenders as outlaws.

Tania spent the following night with a man she tried to date before Stone had called her to the mission. She eventually bit his arm and then ate him, confirming Miguel's and Sonny's suspicion that she was a cannibal who ate her lovers. She then got another call for a mission and left, angry that she had to get to work immediately after eating [4]

Tania had an unquenchable bloodlust.
