Isn't the Black Cat with Daredevil now? Also, I think that Marvel should trade the Black Cat to Daredevil and Silver Sable to Winter Soldier in exchange for the Black Widow being Spidey's partner for a story arc.
Not really. She just had a one-night stand with him, more or less. And Silver Sable is unfortunately crippled by a strong case of death, unless Julia really was telling Spidey the truth in the most recent ASM arc. Of course, I do see interesting possibilities in teaming up Silver Sable with Winter Soldier. After all, Winter Soldier killed Nazis and Silver Sable's father was a Nazi hunter according to at least one version of her backstory. Would be interesting to see them comparing notes.
Chatter aside, I do like seeing Cat wearing nothing but Spidey's costume top and some underwear to keep her decent. It's really kind of sexy, about as much as seeing a woman wearing her boyfriend's shirt because it's the only thing she could find to wear after staying the night with him. And since Cat is wearing it to greet Spidey after he gets home, I'm betting he'll really "enjoy" her surprise visit. :wink:
The one thing that would make things interesting for Spider-Man is to expand the sort of mutual relationship that he has with Carol Danvers to include The Black Widow, Spider-Woman, and She-Hulk. I just feel that there are heroines out there besides The Black Cat who are interested in Spider-Man/Peter Parker. It would make some of the team up adventures interesting.
Especially, in a flash back story arc, when the Black Widow suspects that the Black Cat isn't who she say she is. It might be fun to see the Black Cat reveal herself to be Mystique who was sent by The Kingpin to take out Spider-Man. Thus the Black Widow and Spider-Man battles Mystique. A story that has never happened before. Don't you agree?
I often feel that Natasha should have been Spider-Man's first female crime fighting partner prior to the introduction of the Black Cat. Besides Daredevil, Natasha might have an interest in Spider-Man in her own unique way. I am sure that if the writers were interested in developing Black Widow's partnership with Spider-Man and had the chance to know the Peter Parker side, they might have been very close friends in the same manner as Carol Danvers and Jessica Drew. The same applies to Jennifer Walters if she got to know Peter Parker as well.
That is a very strong possibility, and I do see a greater likelihood for She-Hulk/Spider-Man, Spider-Woman/Spider-Man, and Carol Danvers/Spider-Man than some others might. After all, both She-Hulk and Spider-Man struggle with the dichotomy of their civilian identities and their heroic alter egos, particularly since they act very differently in their heroic identities from their civilian personas, although in both cases, the heroic alter egos simply reveal repressed aspects of their true characters. They could seriously help each other resolve that inner conflict.
As for Black Widow/Spider-Man, well, Wolverine and Spider-Man managed to be friends in spite of their very different origins (helps a bit that Wolverine knew Peter's parents when they were spies), so you could pull something similar with the Black Widow. Perhaps it could be something like her having fought with Richard and Mary Parker while she was still working for the Soviets and maybe flirting with Richard a bit. Be quite a surprise if she ever found out who was behind Spider-Man's mask and maybe end up transferring some of her feelings for Richard Parker to his son. Or, just for kicks, some corporate saboteurs or foreign subversives target Peter Parker for his scientific inventions and Black Widow ends up assigned by Hawkeye, current leader of the Secret Avengers, to protect him. Widow would either have to pretend she doesn't know Peter is Spider-Man or Peter would have to pretend he doesn't know her because he sure as hell isn't Spider-Man, and complicating things is her past relationship, such as it was, with his parents, particularly his father. Fun times, huh?
