    I need a Black Widow movie using Edmonson's comic arc, stat. Captain Marvel is gonna be amazing in Marvel's Phase 3, but I also need a Widow movie.

    While we're at it, Fraction's Hawkeye would be a great film, too.

    The only problem in my opinion is, she is more of a supporting role. I for one probably couldn't get into a black widow movie.

    It wouldn't make a good series, but they certainly could make one about her origins.

    but will it be a superhero movie, or just a she-Bourne movie.

    I strongly disagree on that. Widow's comic arcs as a solo character always leave me wanting more, especially with her Red Room backstory, and she has enough screen time built up across the MCU films (especially so in light of CA2:TWS) that a solo movie, especially one that explores her backstory, would be a draw. Marvel's adapted lesser known properties to great success (i.e., Guardians of the Galaxy, who had nowhere near the comic history/predeveloped screen history of Natasha).

    I found a neat on-going comic called Cucumber Quest... it's about a world full of bunny people terrorized by a creature known as the Nightmare Knight. It sounds lame, but I like it mostly because its plot reminds me a lot of Paper Mario's plot.

    Also do mangas count (they're basically Japanese comics)?

    Cucumber Quest seems really good, but I've never gotten through the archives since I'm so busy.

    I read way too many webcomics, so my favorites are:
    Blindsprings (my profile picture)
    Namesake
    Paranatural
    Ava's Demon
