Kidnapping of Black Widow
Whilst on a mission to bring down Solohob's business, Black Widow was caught spying on him by one of Luchkov's henchmen, who managed to sneak up behind Romanoff and knock her out cold. She was taken to an abandoned warehouse and when Romanoff came to, she found herself tied to a chair as Luchkov began to interrogate her for valuable information.
As Luchkov prepared to torture Romanoff, and whilst the mention of torture gave Romanoff a scare and two quickened breaths, the phone of one of his henchmen rang claiming it was for Romanoff; it was revealed to be Phil Coulson. Whilst talking to Coulson, Romanoff revealed that she was actually extracting information from Luchkov. When Coulson informed her that Clint Barton had been compromised, she signaled for Luchkov to take the phone, then kicked him in the knees before eliminating the henchmen and breaking free from her restraints. She then dropped Luchkov down a hole and left him suspended by a chain around his ankle.
