    Default Doesn’t it bother anyone else that Black Widow is a clone now ?

    When mentioning cloning in Marvel you would think of Spider-Man and/or X-men, but never have I considered Black Widow having a clone saga moment. Which brings me back to my question: Why isn’t anyone a bit bothered by this ? Especially considering Marvel’s history with cloning.

    Haven't been following her titles. But I do think the clone card is a lazy solution when a character has been written into a corner or some kind or another. Character A died in some in an disputable manner? Create a clone.

    She's probably been a clone since before the Silver Age.

    Who isn't a clone in Marvel these days? I just ignore that part and continue reading.

    They'll retcon it soon enough.

    Because she has her original mind/soul?

    This is comics. The meat doesn't matter as much as what's resting in the brainpan.

    So cloned body but original soul.

    So, so what?

    Very few characters are in their 'original' form, so....

    If I had a clone, I send him in to work for me(us?).

    She may very well have died multiple times and been cloned before she defected. Who is to say that the Natasha who defected wasn't the 2nd or 3rd clone of her.

    She has the same memories of the original. If they retcon it to have the original soul well , If they dont: dying preventing another kid became an assassin isnt a bad ending for original Natasha.

    I mean, technically anyone who died in Secret Wars isn't really the original right? Soooo...
    Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    Good point. We've always been led to believe that she stays young due to some knock off version of Cap's Super Soldier Serum... but being cloned would also explain why she doesn't look a day over 30. It is possible she was cloned at some point before she defected.
