Marvel Comics Presents#130
I think Marvel Comics Presents#130 establishes that she uses a variant of the super-soldier serum to slow her aging.
The Red Room's version anyway. Of course, the last Weapon X series and New X-Men seem to hint all these projects are related rather than just the governments competing with each other.Kokushishin
Shouldn't her name be what her real name is, and not the 'common' form of it?
I dig the Spiderwoman aspect to this character [sticking to walls, Widow's bite, line swinging, etc.], but the Bond-esque use of conventional weapons kind of ruins the ride for me. The writer ought to choose between Spiderwoman variant OR a Jane Bond-type superspy. The present character seems burdened with too many themes at the same time. I also think the female figure is more apropos for a spider-like form. --Joe Webster 07:57, March 6, 2010 (UTC)
Both forms are appropriate, as both forms are canon in the comics. Natasha IS a mixture of Jane Bond superspy and Spiderwoman. --Dan 12:57, June 25, 2012
This is totally Mara Jade...
