One of the coolest things about The Avengers is the fact that everyone has his or her favorite member of the team. Each of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes is so unique that they all offer something for everybody. That’s what made the recent conflict in Captain America: Civil War so simultaneously awesome and heartbreaking.

However, one character who always seems to come up as a favorite Avenger is Scarlett Johansson's Natasha Romanoff a.k.a Black Widow. The badass assassin turned Avenger has remained a key player in the Marvel Cinematic Universe ever since 2010’s Iron Man 2, and yet we still have not gotten the often clamored for Black Widow solo movie. We’ve gone through the entirety of the MCU and compiled a list of the 10 times Ms. Romanoff has proven her worth, showing us why she absolutely deserves to take the center stage for a solo movie in the very near future.

She Takes Down Alexander Pierce
One of the biggest qualifiers for being a hero comes from a willingness to make impossible calls and outsmart one’s enemies in dire situations. After going undercover as a member of the World Security Council in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Natasha Romanoff thinks she has HYDRA sleeper Alexander Pierce cornered in the Triskelion until he reveals that she is wearing an explosive charge on her lapel. Seemingly outwitted by the leader of HYDRA, Black Widow opts to electrocute herself with one of her trademark Stingers to (rather painfully) short-circuit the charge – giving Nick Fury a window to gun down Pierce. A Black Widow solo movie would similarly offer ample opportunities for Marvel to force her to think on her feet and show the lengths she will go to in order to win.
