Black WidowMargaret Stohl will write a young adult novel starring the Black Widow.

The announcement was made during the “Woman of Marvel” panel at New York Comic Con. The book is slated for release in 2015.

According to, Stohl feels that this project “is the badassiest thing I’ve ever been asked to work on in my life. Black Widow is the very best hot mess I know. She kicks ass, she’s more of a Wolverine than a Captain America.”

The character has been featured in several recent film adaptations. Actress Scarlett Johansson played this antihero in Iron Man 2The Avengers, and Captain America: The Winter Soldier. What do you think? (via Vox)
