Oh, come on. Seriously? I cannot believe I’m writing yet another story about it. Or rather, I absolutely can. I’m just so freaking sick of it! Marvel, what the hell do we have to do here? Stand outside your office and hold up stacks of money to show you we’re serious?
So, in the latest case of #WheresNatasha, Black Widow has been replaced in her own scene in a new toy set. Remember the scene where Black Widow races to help out Captain America on her motorcycle? Well, she’s been replaced by Captain America in the set.
“With your Captain America figure racing away, somebody needs to stick around in the cockpit. Luckily, the Cycle Blast Quinjet holds up to 4 2.5-inch Avengers figures! Additional figures sold separately,” the item’s description states. “Imagine your own battles as you put Black Widow, Hawkeye, Thor, or Iron Man behind the controls and follow Captain America into the fight!”

You remember when she was replaced by Ultron in the Avengers set here?
But wait, there’s more. According to this tweet to The Mary Sue, she’s been replaced by Iron Man in this one.

Oh, and then there was my trip to Target last night. Notice any female character besides Slave Leia? Yeah, me neither. What the hell is wrong with Disney? Oh, and for the record, every Avengers shirt in the store, barring a single one for toddler girls was missing Natasha. Including the women’s shirts.
Pretty sure I’m going to spend the night blocking jerks from my Twitter and Facebook feed for writing about this yet again. Sigh.
