Black Widow brings a strategic and decisive element to the team with her Widows Bite gauntlets, elite marksmanship, and unmatched espionage skills.”
Another normal human with some expert skills is Hawkeye, the dude with the ‘almost’ infinite bow. “Orphaned at a young age and protégé to a master archer, Clint Barton is one of the world’s greatest marksmen,” states the description. “His archery skills have be honed through rigorous training and commitment to never miss a shot, and his ability with a bow and arrow is equal to the superhuman powers of many of his teammates and foes. His Bow Shot and combination of specially tipped Trick Shots keep him even on the battlefield with his team and the enemies they face.”
