Review: Wastelanders: Black Widow #1

Wastelanders: Black Widow #1

When it comes to mysterious characters in the MCU, there is only a handful.  One of those being satisfied in the recent Hawkeye series, which gave fans, some well deserved answers to our burning questions. As we found what happened to Yelena during the “Blip” and how she has coped with her sister’s death. We also found out exactly where the Kingpin has been during everything going on the wider Marvel Universe.

It is Yelena’s sister, Natasha AKA Black Widow that remains ever so enigmatic to longtime fans and viewers. AS Natasha rarely gives up as much as she takes, which is possibly a job hazard. AS being one of the world’s greatest spies, often means hiding in the shadows and plain sight. That is why she may be the most interesting character in the first 3 phases of the MCU. In the latest one shot story in the Wastelanders, we get Wastelanders: Black Widow #1, Natasha Looks to take on one more job, a secret that can change the world

We are taken to the domain of Lizard King, deep down in Florida, where he has taken a prisoner and Black Widow, long thought to have died in the Villain Uprising, has risen from hiding for one big score.  We find out happened to her after the villains won, Yelena burying her sister and taking over the mantle of Black Widow, scavenging the Wastelands the best way she could. She works her way though his lair, defeating Hulk’s grandchildren one by one and temporarily slowing down the Lizard King to get to  Elias Starr. By the issue’s end, Yelena finds him, but a shadow of his former self, leaving her to take down Red Skull all on her own.

Overall, Wastelanders: Black Widow #1 is an outstanding entry into the Wastelanders and proves that some heroes never die. The story by DeKnight  is incredible. The art by the creative is wonderful. Altogether, a story which shows why the MCU should make Yelena the next Black Widow.

Spider-Man: No Way Home

Spider-Man: No Way Home has again topped the weekend box office, the fourth weekend in a row. The film grossed an estimated $33 million to bring its domestic total to $668.8 million.

The film is such a juggernaut, other release dates are being moved.

Internationally, the film grossed $108.5 million over the week to lift that to $867.5 million. There’s little doubt the film will cross the billion mark for its international gross. At this point, the question is, how far will the film go?

Currently, the film has grossed $1.536 billion worldwide. It ranks #6 for lifetime domestic earnings (not counting for inflation) and when it comes to worldwide, the film ranks #8 and will likely slide into #6 at some point this week passing The Lion King and Jurassic World.

In comic films…

Eternals is still grossing at the box office with a week before it debuts on Disney+. The film added $58,000 to its domestic total to bring that to $164.8 million.

Black Widow has ended its domestic run. Domestically, the film has grossed a little under $183.7 million. The international total stands at $196 million. Worldwide, the film has grossed $379.6 million.

Marvel and SiriusXM’s Wastelanders: Black Widow Gets a Trailer

The next chapter of the Marvel’s Wastelanders audio epic has arrived! Marvel Entertainment and SiriusXM latest original scripted podcast series is Marvel’s Wastelanders: Black Widow. The podcast will premiere on Monday, January 10.

Following Marvel’s Wastelanders: Star-Lord and Marvel’s Wastelanders: Hawkeye, Marvel’s Wastelanders: Black Widow is the third installment in the post-apocalyptic audio series. The 10-episode original scripted podcast is written by Alex Delyle, directed by Timothy Busfield, with sound design and original music by Daniel Brunelle.

The series stars Academy Award-winning actress Susan Sarandon as Helen Black, and features performances by Eva AmurriNate CorddryAmber GrayMelissa GilbertChasten Harmon, Michael Imperioli, and Justin Kirk.

The story begins almost 30 years after The Day the Villains Won (aka V-Day), when Helen Black arrives at her new apartment in The Onar, a 161-story apartment complex in what used to be Midtown Manhattan. Owned and operated by S.H.I.E.L.D., The Onar has become the very embodiment of the dystopic wealth and inequality that’s engulfed New York City ever since V-Day. A collection of uber-rich families – including the media magnate Burge family – occupy the opulent penthouses in the DecaDomes, The Onar’s highest ten stories. Helen Black’s apartment is located in the much more humble “100 Block”. When her nosy neighbor Dr. Brian Mizuno asks Helen (through the paper-thin walls) what brought her here, she cryptically alludes to “problems with an ex…”.

On the same day that Helen moves into her apartment, Lisa Cartwright reports for her first day as a Junior Residential Security Analyst for Panopticog Solutions, a private security company hired by S.H.I.E.L.D. to monitor the residents of The Onar (without their knowledge or consent). Lisa is assigned to surveil Helen’s corner of The 100 Block, and quickly discovers that Helen Black is not at all who she says she is.
