Spider-Woman Is Now The Black Widow…


Today sees the launch of the All-New Ultimates, the fifth "All-New" title from Marvel today (the others are X-Factor, Doop, X-Men and Ghost Rider). And we see the new Ultimates team, formed in the recent Survive one-shot. But are there too many Spider- characters for one team?

And yes, "Die Spinne", while the German for The Spider and also the German name for Spider-Man…




…was also the name of a secret Nazi organisation created by Hitler's commando chief, intelligence officers to get hundreds of SS officers to escape from Germany to Spain, Argentina, Paraguay, Chile and Bolivia after the war, to evade being tried. So there's that.

But anyway, back to Spider-Woman. Time for a change – in both costume and look.



Well maybe she'd just seen Captain America; The Winter Soldier, as the Black Widow is pretty bad ass in that. But it looks like she's not the only one.

The Huntress, in today's World's Finest, also appears to be doing a mean impression of The Winter Soldier in this flashback…
