Black Widow Plot
In 1995 Russian In, Russian spy agents, super soldier Alexei Shostakov, and black widow Melina Vostokov stood as a normal family in Ohio with their surrogate daughters Natasha Romanoff and Yelena Belova. When S.H.I.E.L.D. Intel has completed the theft operation, the family has fled to Cuba and is beautiful with their owner, General Draykov, who has been taken to the red room for training by Romanoff and Belova. Years passed and Shostakov was imprisoned in Russia, while Romanoff was sentenced to S.H.I.L.D. He and his young daughter Antonia were apparently killed after a bomb blast at Draykov’s Budapest office.
In 2001, Romanoff absconded for violating the Sokovia Acts. She escaped from US Secretary of State Thaddeus Ross and fled to a Norwegian safehouse provided by Rick Mason. Belova, meanwhile, kills a black widow fake but comes in contact with synthetic gas that neutralizes Redroom’s chemical mind-control agent. Belova sends a copy of the poison to Romanoff in the hope that he will return to help Belova to free the other widows. When Romanoff unknowingly left with antiviral drugs, she was attacked by a taskmaster. Romanoff manages to escape from the taskmaster and realizes that the poisonous extract came from Belova. The two reunite in Budapest, where Romanoff learns that Draykov is alive and that the redroom is still functioning. Shortly afterwards, they were attacked by black widows, and Romanoff and Belova avoided the widow and taskmaster before meeting Mason and providing them with a helicopter.
Romanoff and Belova threw Shostakov out of prison to find out Drykov’s whereabouts. He tells them to talk to Vostokoff, who lives on a farm outside St. Petersburg, where she developed the chemical mind control process used on widows. There, Belova revealed that although they were not a real family, she believed they were. Vostokoff has admitted that she has sent their location to Drekov, whose agents bring air services to the Red Room.
Before the capture, Vostokoff and Romanoff use face mask technology to switch locations, freeing Vostokoff and Belova from their restraint. Meanwhile, Romanoff confronts Draykov who looks through her disguise. Romanoff learns that the taskmaster is Antonia, who did so much damage that Dryakov had to put a chip in her head and she had to be transformed into a perfect army, able to mimic the actions of anyone who saw her, along with many Avengers. Romanoff tried to kill Draykov but failed to injure him by installing a pheromone lock in each widow. Drakov revealed that he controlled widows around the world through his desk console. Romanoff intentionally broke her nose and broke a nerve in her nasal passage to reject the pheromone, and then attacked Drykov. While Shostakov is grappling with the taskmaster, Vostokoff takes an engine from the facility and searches for other widows sent to protect Belova Drakov. Sostkov and Belova locked the taskmaster in a cell together.
Draykov escaped as the widows attacked Romanoff, but Belova created an antidote bomb that freed the widows from mental control. Romanoff arrives at the control desk and copies other widows’ locations around the world as the facility explodes and collapses. Romanoff recovered two live vials of the drug and freed the taskmaster from the locked cell. Just as Belova pulled out Draykov’s helicopter, Vostokoff and Shostakov escaped from the plane. Romanoff parachutes Belova before fighting the taskmaster in Freefall. After landing, Romanoff uses the drug on the taskmaster, freeing her from slavery. Freed widows came after Belova, Vostokoff, and Shostakov said goodbye to Romanoff. She gave Belova the last virus capsule and portable drive, and she was looking for another, still-controlled widow to free her. As they set out with Antonia, Romanoff waits for Ross and his men, who have come to capture her.
Two weeks later, Romanoff reunites with Mason, who supplies her with Quinjet. She left, thinking of freeing the imprisoned Avengers.
