As we can see in the unlettered preview of SECRET AVENGERS #20 below, Black Widow will be venturing off on a mission all her own, on her own -- and not even her team will know about it. While the first few pages of the preview appear to be jam packed with action, the latter two pages give the impression that Black Widow will be doing what she does best in this upcoming issue; acting as the spy. This is a great opportunity for the creative to to show readers what character that normally stays in the background can really do on her own. It will definitely be interesting to see. Check out the incredibly gorgeous 4-page preview below; and while it is difficult to tell exactly what will be going on in the issue, it's still fun to speculate. What do you think of the preview?
