First appearance



Based at the Red Room Academy, the Black Widow Ops Program was a Cold War era Soviet espionage training program dedicated to producing the deadliest female spies in the world.

Orphaned girls were selected and trained at the facility in lessons which involved hand-to-hand combat training and weapons training. During training the girls were forced to fight to the death. The girls were also trained in English and western culture, as well as indoctrinated with films, such as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, which contained subliminal messages including instil, fear, and pain. The subjects had their wrists handcuffed to their beds during sleep. Dottie Underwood was a graduate of this program.

During a mission to the Red Room Academy by the SSR and the Howling Commandos, one of the students stabbed Dum-Dum Dugan and killed Junior Juniper.[1]

Natasha Romanoff added that the "graduation ceremony" for the Black Widows involved sterilization, as the creators considered that nothing would drag down a killer more than having children.[2]
