"Welcome, Natasha, daughter of Ivan."
Red Skull to Black Widow[src]

Ivan Romanoff (Russian: Иван Романов) was the father of Natasha Romanoff.


Daughter Orphaned

Ivan Romanoff fathered a daughter, Natasha Romanoff, with his wife in 1984.[1][2] However, he died of unknown circumstances, and after Dreykov ordered the death of his wife for attempting to expose the Red Room, his daughter was left orphaned and recruited by the organization.[3]

Mentioned by Red Skull

When Natasha Romanoff traveled to the planet Vormir in search of the Soul Stone in an alternate 2014 with Clint Barton, Red Skull greeted her as the daughter of Ivan.[2]




  • In the comics, Ivan Petrovich Bezukhov was Natasha Romanoff's foster father and mentor.
