Synopsis for 1st story
Disguised as Tatiana Sokolova, Black Widow works at a night club in Moscow, pursuing the trail of missing Starktech. While she tries to interrogate Mikhail Fjodorov, one of the world's most successful illegal arms dealers, Fjodorov is killed by an unknown woman and Black Widow is forced to leave the club via the roof, fighting several security men. After she gets to a hotel and is waiting for extraction, she is attacked by masked people working for Eaglestar, but overwhelms them and receives a SIM card to reach the mysterious woman she has seen in the night club. Later, Black Widow talks to the woman, who calls herself "Sofia", and learns that she is a "fan" and wants to take over the name "Black Widow".
