Black Widow — Corey Perry
Corey Perry has earned a reputation for himself as the player that other teams love to hate. However, much like Black Widow, Perry is trusted by those who are closest to him. Despite that fact, he still isn’t afraid to figure out his opponent’s weaknesses and use it to his advantage. He is a pest to other NHL teams and makes the blood of other fans boil.
One quality that is particularly admirable about Perry when comparing him to Black Widow is that he has to sometimes work twice as hard as his teammates to succeed. Unlike the other Avengers, Black Widow was not gifted with these “superpowers” and relies on her own strength and tenacity to get her and her teammates out of sticky situations. Perry is definitely not the best skater and has received criticism over the past few seasons for his decline.
Nevertheless, he came back this season and worked harder than a lot of his teammates to prove that he still belongs with the Anaheim Ducks franchise. He is both strong and tenacious, unwilling to give up easily. Perry is also a fighter and unbeknownst to all of us until this season, a warrior in his own right.
Even if it seems like his opponent has the upper hand, Perry has proven time and time again that it is a big mistake to count him out. His confidence is evident, as well as his intelligence, and he is often one of the most fearless players on the ice.
