BLACK WIDOW #9—out December 21—we’ll get to see the return of everyone’s favorite man on the wall, Bucky Barnes, aka The Winter Soldier.

These two certainly have a spark, but would a renewed romance between them lead to a happily-ever-after, or would it end in heartbreak? The BLACK WIDOW creative team of Mark Waid and artist Chris Samnee weigh in…

Nat + Bucky 4Ever

Mark Waid: “Obvious physical chemistry.

“[They would] have a lot to talk about when it comes to their days at work.

“[Both] have had a crush on Steve Rogers at some point in the past.”

Chris Samnee: “They have a shared history in the Red Room and affiliation with the Black Widow Ops Program, Department X, and the Avengers.

“Both are great at keeping secrets.

“They’ve already been a couple”

What is Marvel Unlimited?
…Or maybe not so much

Mark Waid: “Natasha [would be] constantly baffled by what birthday gift you get a 90-year-old man.

“Both of them [are] mopey at holidays and terrible at family functions.

“[They have a] bad habit of keeping state secrets from one another.”

Chris Samnee:

“They have a shared history in the Red Room and affiliation with the Black Widow Ops Program, Department X, and the Avengers.

“Both are great at keeping secrets.

“They’ve already been a couple”

Will they or won’t they? Find out on December 21 in BLACK WIDOW #9 by Chris Samnee and Mark Waid!
