The Black Widow Takes On Katniss Everdeen in Today's Character Cage Match
Posted 09.26.12 by Mandy
The Avengers was released on Blu-ray and DVD this week. It, of course, features the lethal Black Widow / Natasha Romanoff, who is one tough chick. Another tough chick who was new to Blu-ray and DVD only a few weeks ago is Katniss Everdeen, star of The Hunger Games. So what would happen if these two tough-as-nails ladies went up against each other in a cage? Well, they’d probably be able to make plenty of money via PPV, but who would win the match?
The Rules: While Black Widow is a deadly assassin, Katniss is just a kid who managed to stay alive longer than 22 other teens. So, to balance the scales a bit, Miss Everdeen gets to take her bow and arrow with her into the ring, while Natasha goes in unarmed.
Black Widow's Biggest Strength: At 5'3", she might not be physically intimidating, but her ability to fly through the air and snap someone's neck with her thighs is a decided strength.
Other Strengths: The Black Widow is incredibly fast and agile, and men who are twice her size get tossed around like rag dolls when she's around.
Greatest Weakness: She likes to trick people into thinking she's weak and vulnerable to get the upper hand, but there's no way that ploy will work on Katniss.
Katniss' Biggest Strength: At 5'9" Katniss has a distinct height advantage, but really it's her archery skills that will probably be the biggest asset.
Other Strengths:The thing that sets this tribute apart from the others is that she never gives up. Whatever the Black Widow's advantages are, it won't be an easy fight.
Greatest Weakness: Katniss will fight if her life's on the line, but she does not have the same skills as a lethal assassin like Natasha Romanoff.
