Black Widow's Batons are electroshock weapons, created by Tony Stark for Black Widow. The batons constantly glow with a blue light and being an extension of the Black Widow's Bite, are charged by and stored in the gauntlets.

History

Black Widow Taking Out An Ultron Sentry

Black Widow takes out an Ultron Sentry

Sometime before the Ultron Offensive, Natasha Romanoff acquired the batons from Tony Stark. During the Battle of Sokovia, she used the batons to take down dozens of Ultron Sentries with a combination of her weapons and martial arts mastery.[1]

She again employed these weapons during the Avengers Civil War. However, these batons were not charged with electricity and sported a hand guard, allowing her to hook Hawkeye's Bow and giving her a more versatile fighting style.[2]

Black Widow Staff

Black Widow fights against Proxima Midnight

Coming back from their exile, Romanoff, Captain America and Falcon saved Vision from the Black Order. She fought them with her batons. Romanoff stored these batons in a holster on her back. Later, Romanoff used them again in the Battle of Wakanda to fight Proxima Midnight. Romanoff was able to combine these batons into one long staff, allowing her to attack and defend simultaneously.[3]

Capabilities

  • Electrocution: Similar to the Black Widow's Bite, the batons can deliver powerful, electrical shocks to incapacitate her targets. The electrocution is powerful enough for Romanoff to take down multiple Ultron Sentries, and even momentarily appear to cause Proxima Midnight discomfort.
  • Staff Assembly: Black Widow was able to combine her batons to form one longer staff giving her alternate fighting options.
  • Enhanced Durability: The batons are shown to be highly durable, being able to deflect several slashes from Proxima Midnight's Sword.

Trivia

  • Black Widow's Batons are based on Escrima Sticks.
