The story will set-up the events of the upcoming movie, and may give us a better idea of what to expect from the plot. We already know that most of the standalone adventure will be set between the events of Civil War and Avengers: Endgame, but there’s a good chance we’ll also see some flashbacks to Natasha’s (Scarlett Johansson) pre-S.H.I.E.L.D. days as a Red Room assassin, and it looks like that’s going to be he focus of this first issue.

Like most of Marvel’s prelude comics, this cover doesn’t actually use an image from the movie it’s supposed to be setting up. This shot of Natasha is from Captain America: Civil War.
Here we see General Ross telling an unidentified Agent (Maria Hill, perhaps?) about Natasha’s murky past and her eventual recruitment into the Red Room.
Ross reveals that Romanoff was their star pupil, but ran into a few “setbacks.” It looks like Widow came up against someone who was just a little better than she was. It’ll be interesting to see if this mysterious character plays a role in the movie.
