Canon

Comics

Earth-1610

On Earth-1610 Tony and Natasha are both member of the Ultimates (the counterpart of the Avangers) She was originally part of the Ultimates' covert operations ("black ops") team, but with the emergence of the Chitauri threat was subsequently moved to public status after a publicly acceptable background was written for her.[2] She has genetic or cybernetic enhancements making her far better in combat than the average human. After accepting a marriage proposal from Tony Stark, she receives a black suit of Iron Man armor as an engagement present, along with a set of nanites to control the armor.[3]

Romanova is later revealed as a traitor—claiming that she betrayed the Ultimates because she feels that America has turned her country into a collection of drug-runners and prostitutes—responsible for killing Hawkeye's wife and children, revealing Bruce Banner's connection to the Hulk to the public, helping to frame Captain America as a traitor, and collaborating with the Liberators in their invasion of the United States. After she murders Edwin Jarvis and holds Stark hostage in an attempt to extort his fortune, Stark activates the nanites in her bloodstream, freezing her body in place, before knocking her unconscious with a wine bottle.[4] She appears later in an emergency clinic, having cut open her wrists to bleed out the disabling nanites. Hawkeye kills her in revenge for her part in the murder of his family.[5]

By Ultimates 3 #1 a sex tape between Natasha and Stark has been leaked to the public. According to Janet Pym, the tape is of unknown origin and seems to have been professionally done with "close ups". Stark is shown to be in a state of depression over Natasha's betrayal and subsequent death.[6] It is later revealed that one of the Ultrons calling himself Yellowjacket had leaked the tape.[7]

Marvel Cinematic Universe

Iron Man 2

Natasha was sent by Nick Fury to spy on Tony Stark once they realized he was ill. She was placed at Stark Industries as a legal assistant named Natalie Rushman. Tony immediately took an interest in "Natalie," which she used to her advantage to gather intel about him and assess whether he was suitable for membership in the Avengers Initiative.

After Tony's disastrous birthday party, Fury confronted Tony about his situation at Randy's Donuts. There, Natasha, wearing her S.H.I.E.L.D. uniform, introduced her true self to Tony. She gave him a shot of a serum to temporarily reduce the effects of his palladium poisoning, giving him time to work on a cure.

Later, while Tony battled Ivan Vanko's Hammer Drones and James Rhodes, whose armor was controlled by Ivan Vanko, Natasha fought her way through Hammer Industries. She found Vanko's computer and quickly released Rhodey's armor from Vanko's control.

The Avengers

Tony overrode the PA system on the Quinjet Natasha was flying and asked her if she missed him before flying in to help Steve Rogers fight Loki. Natasha and Tony later fought alongside each other during the Battle of New York.

Avengers: Age of Ultron

The two fought alongside each other to retrieve Loki's scepter and in the subsequent battles at the salvage yard and in Sokovia.

Captain America: Civil War

Natasha and Tony sided together on the Sokovia Accords, though for different reasons; Tony believed that the Accords were morally correct, and Natasha simply wanted to keep the team together. They later fought at each other's side at the Leipzig-Halle airport. Natasha, however, betrayed her team in the end and allowed Steve and Bucky Barnes to escape.

Later, at the hospital where James Rhodes was being treated for his paralysis, Tony and Natasha talked with each other. He gave her a halfhearted warning that the government would be coming after her, but denounced their friendship due to her betrayal. The two parted on unpleasant terms.
