Ahhh... but Captain America, Iron Man, and the Incredible Hulk are also human! They have just been genetically altered in some way... This chick, is she a "real" superhero? Or was she created for this movie. I should look her up... Anyway... She did have the ability to read minds if anyone missed that...

Yeah, I cottoned on to that, although I attributed the mind reading ability to her mad martial arts skillz and saw it as more of an enhanced ability to read body language.

I want something more badass!! Like shooting laser beams from her eyes! Or maybe she could fart atomic bombs!

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

Black Widow has also been altered genetically although originally she was completely human, just like the other three.

No, she wasn't made up for the movie. She's been part of the Marvel universe for almost 50 years, in various guises. Scarlett Johanson is playing the 'original' Black Widow, Natasha.

Nick Fury of SHIELD is the catalyst that brings them all together, but Black Widow has been with SHIELD longer than any of the others.

I know far too much about comic book heroes......

I realize I'm coming into this thread a little late... but thought I'd post anyway.

I LOVED it. Though I am a huge Joss Whedon fan (any other browncoats out there?) and I'm so glad he FINALLY has a huge, big-budget success under his belt. Maybe Fox will stop cancelling all of his shows now...
