Secret Invasion 7

Is Secret Invasion so lacking that even the Editor isn't reading it? Black Widow's real name is Natalia is it? Right, cos I thought it was Natasha.
A chum of mine says that Natalia is actually a posh Russian version of Natasha. So do we credit the creators with intelligence or just feel like it's yet more sloppiness.
I know which one I'm opting for

Her official Marvel Comics bio opens "Natalia Romanova, known to most as Natasha Romanoff..." So...seems like... :)

but who has ever called her natalia??? it's always natasha.

More and more they seem to be establishing her as Natalia to those who knew her in "the old days" (i.e. the old days that they're telling for the first time in flashbacks now) such as Bucky and Logan. I still haven't worked out how old she's supposed to be though, or if she's had some kind of Nick Fury-esque longevity-increasing thingy.

That Claremont/Lee X-Men World War II issue with Cap, Wolvie and a 10-ish year old Natasha always confused me. So in non-Marvel time that puts her in her seventies.

What is the point of her anyway? She can't really do much except shoot people.
And I hate it when writers forget that she's supposed to have a Russian accent.
