I really like what Stuart’s done with this. The outfit most associated with Black Widow is probably the black cat-suit she wore during the ’70s, and while that was quite sleek and sexy, it never seemed all that functional.
With this design, though, it’s clear that Stuart wanted place a bit more emphasis on Black Widow as super-spy and a result, she looks much more dangerous. I don’t have any trouble imagining her getting down and dirty in whatever situation she’s thrown into, and the number of accessories Stuart’s equipped her with open the mind to a myriad of possibilities regarding what her profession actually entails.
I also like that he’s found a way to make the red hourglass-shaped marking from the spider work, too. In the past, I’ve found some of the attempts to create some kind of insignia for Black Widow a little clumsy, but this works quite well. In fact, the only thing I might have a problem with here is the length of her hair. I think it looks great, but I could see it posing problems in action.
