I get that she has to become more powerful than human in order to hang with the Avengers, but lol.

Corvus Glaive and Proxima Midnight are basically fighting Vision (who is more powerful than Ultron and any 10 Iron Man suits) and Scarlett Witch (a borderline reality bender).

Along comes a peak gymnast level human being in Black Widow and she's trading hits with these two villains? Her arms would shatter if she blocked one of their strikes with her weapon. Proxima kicks her in the chest at point, which should have had the effect of a missile on her human frame.

Cap's head also should have exploded when Thanos (who pounded Hulk into submission) punched him.

Vision got sucker punched and couldn't use his phasing powers. He's also never demonstrated great acrobatics since he relies on phasing so without it he's a glass cannon

I think the only reason they stood a chance against them was because they handing off the alien spear to one another during the fight. Really shows that their power levels are directly related to their weapons. Also they had a surprise round.

I guess this would be like my one complaint about this film. Yet another film where she isn't used correctly.
She's a spy. She knows some kung-fu. That's it.
Iron Man 2 and Winter Soldier are the only films where she's been powered appropriately. Even in Civil War she takes a grenade in a truck with just a guy between her and is fine, otherwise I would include that film.
I find it ridiculous seeing her punching and kicking to death aliens like they were nothing. This isn't her arena yet these Avengers films put her on almost equal footing with Cap.
FFVII Remake: A disaster in the making.
I'll laugh at whatever I find funny whether you like it or not.

The Black Widow has been enhanced by biotechnology that makes her body resistant to aging and disease and heals at an above human rate;[66] as well as psychological conditioning that suppresses her memory of true events as opposed to implanted ones of the past without the aid of specially designed system suppressant drugs.[volume & issue needed]

The white blood cells in her body are efficient enough to fight off any microbe, foreign body and others from her body, keeping her healthy and immune to most, if not all infections, diseases and disorders.[volume & issue needed]

Her agility is greater than that of an Olympic gold medalist. She can coordinate her body with balance, flexibility, and dexterity easily.[67]


Simply put, she's an enhanced human just like Cap and Black Panther.
You're not funny and nobody likes you.

I mean, it makes her feats a lot more understandable, but when is this ever stated? Also, Hawkeye makes a pretty bug deal about just being a regular human, and he's evenly matched with Black Widow.

How is she different than any other action star? The genre is all about "normal" humans doing superhuman things that aren't realistic. This is a silly complaint.

Plus, she was almost killed by Proxima twice. Cap and Wanda saved her.

Raw skill and strategy can make up for a lack of raw power. Glaive and Midnight came prepared to fight Vision, but they didn't anticipate fighting a highly skilled martial artist. It's perfectly logical that someone as skilled as Black Widow could out maneuver Midnight, take her weapon, and use it against her. Vision and Wanda also have far less combat experience than Black Widow.
We should strive to create a world of love and compassion. It may take a lot of time and effort, but it can be done.
