are you happy natasha is finally receiving an actually important arc in a mainstream marvel event? i feel like shes been playing background fighting person ever since age of ultron.

Not really, because I think her arc has been pretty stupid.

I haven’t really wanted her to have a ~major role~ in events because it’s become increasingly clear that events are where sense-making characterization goes to die. The real event payoff is the status quo afterwards, and we haven’t seen what that means for Natasha yet, so I can’t judge.
