Black Widow #4

After failing to properly end their bizarre experiment, the villains behind Black Widow's fake life bicker on whether to run or fight. Neither option appears to have much success. Now in full command of her memory, Nat is able to piece together the truth about her family (which she still cares deeply for). She also knows if they are to have any hope of a future they will need to stay as far away from her as possible.

The comic brings back Yelena, Hawkeye, and Winter Soldier to help Natalia keep her family safe and give her time to figure out who is responsible. Things end poorly (or do they? in a comic about misdirection do we really know what we see?).

For fans of the character, the best news here is Widow is back in fine fighting form and taking down all threats as they appear. However, her attention is still split between her old life and her new. How those will be reconciled may ultimately decide where the character goes from here.
