I'll admit I picked up this comic because the title made my head slightly explode. The Marvel Girls? Really? Glimpses of future issues make it seem like Black Widow and company will be adults there, so even the name of the comic leaves me cold.

The Black Widow is an old Marvel character with a resonant history. She could have just remained a one-note stereotype Cold War styled Russian agent and disappeared into comic book limbo with the Unicorn. Marvel writers instead transformed her into a likeable, multi-faceted super-hero, a one-time leader of the Avengers no less. If you're a young fan of this character, I recommend that you pick up some of her fun, exciting seventies adventures from The Amazing Spider-Man, Marvel Team-Up and Marvel Two-In-One. Marvel will soon be collecting her own series, which she shared with The Inhumans, for some reason. Also, ask your local comic book merchant for Marvel Adventures Avengers #21 her exquisitely entertaining proper all-ages debut story. Older fans will appreciate Black Widow and Black Widow: The Things They Say About Her by Richard K. Morgan and Bill Sienkiewicz. All ages should avoid Black Widow and the Marvel Girls as if it were swine flu. Read Full Review
