Black Widow is finally coming to the theatres this time around, and it looks like nothing is changing that so, let’s get to know more about Yelena Belova, the sister figure of Natasha Romanoff
Are Yelena and Natasha sisters?
They don’t look alike, but the videos and pictures we got from Black Widow and particularly the one with both wearing the same vest makes us wonder what kind of sisters they are.
According to the comics, Yelena was the only one who could beat down Natasha’s scores. This not only makes her constantly plan things to keep up with Natasha this also gives Natasha a good game of ‘let me show who the bigger sister is.’
Both the girls were put through intense training and know what it is like to have their memory erased. So that kind of forms a sisterly bond between them. But in real life it looks like they both can be best friends.
Is Yelena Belova good?
According to the comics, she followed everything the Black Widow ops told to the dot. But later, she is brought to the brighter side thanks to Natasha and Nick Fury.
We are not sure when that will happen in the MCU but Yelena being in Hawkeye is an indication that it is happening real soon.
The thing is, Black Widow training is so intense and painful that the higher-ups in there completely erase the memories of those girls and put in fake memories to keep them loyal.
So, with Fury’s help, Natasha makes Yelena see the truth.
Does Yelena Belova join the Avengers?
From what we can see now, Yelena might become the one inheriting Natasha’s role. In the comics, Yelena does join the Avengers but later quits and joins the other side when she gets burnt in half.
Hydra supposedly saves her in that case, and they recruit her by injecting superpowers in her. The story can’t be the same here as Hydra is done as far as we know, so we should wait and see what her role in MCU will be like.
