Monica Chang-Fury (also known as Black Widow) is a fictional character appearing in comics published by Marvel Comics.

Fictional character biography[edit]

Monica Chang-Fury is the second character to use the Black Widow codename in the Ultimate Marvel continuity, debuting in Ultimate Comics: Avengers #3.[4]

She recruited the Punisher.[5] Later she was transferred to the New Ultimates.[6] After Fury returned as director of S.H.I.E.L.D., he reassembled the Ultimates and Monica rejoined that team, moving with her and Fury's child, Julius Chang, to the Triskelion.[7] She then became director of S.H.I.E.L.D.[8]

In the All-New Ultimates final series, Monica tells Jessica Drew after they captured Crossbones.[9] Later, while working with the FBI, Monica apparently is killed by Green Goblin.[10]

Other versions[edit]

Monica Chang makes her first appearance in Marvel's mainstream Earth-616 continuity in the series Avengers A.I.[11] In this series, Monica is the chief of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s A.I. Division. Monica enlists Hank Pym to help her stop Dimitrios (who evolved from the fail-safe virus used to defeat Ultron at the end of the Age of Ultron storyline) and they form the Avengers A.I. consisting of a Doombot, Victor Mancha and the Vision. During their first mission, the Avengers A.I. faced hijacked S.H.I.E.L.D. Drones which attacked a hospital in Atlanta.[12] It is revealed she is a devout Muslim.[13][14] She later prevents the end of the universe by preventing the execution of an LMD infected with a virus.[15]
