Obviously Widow. Inb4 "she's a woman and she looks better doing it, that's only why ppl are saying her".

Don't sell Oliver short. He can do useless acrobatics as well.

I'm sorry, but Green Arrow and not even close. I'd happily provide feats if needed.

I think people sell Oliver short because he's bulky but in reality he's pretty agile/acrobatic. Some examples of this:

@danieldaripper:

And I would take her boat scene and action scenes where she relies on agility so much as she does - over everything in either of those videos. Here's much of her scenes - It is nothing special to Natasha, and she tends to use it as a weapon faaaar more often and seamlessly, whether it is weaving in and under peoples legs, before jumping right up around their neck, mixed in with maybe some parkouring.

What you have is basically oliver doing a trick shot and a less than Natasha-like evade. A bunch of times where he fights, and then sometimes does the specific semi-flexible thing he needs to (not like Natasha, who has a style built around that agility strength itself) - and a bunch of Oliver parkouring. I don't think that makes it comparable at all.

Natasha >> Green Arrow currently in the agility department.

Green Arrow, Black Widow's only feat that is actually good is in a tie in comic, and Oliver has better feats still. See the feats above and also this feat:

Tbh I don't really see anything Oliver hasn't already replicated, surpassed, or couldn't do. Here are some similar moves he performed over his past appearances.

While yes Oliver doesn't perform acrobatics/agility in his combat as much as Nat does that doesn't take away from his accomplishments in the past.

Arrow, Natasha's agility is just more flashy to look at because she's a woman

Oliver has comparable feats but Widow relies on it far more. Even stunt actors can do so much before risking twisting their necks.

Though he uses it less often, due to having way more feats overall I think Ollie has at least as many impressive feats as Natasha does, and I think I might actually give him the edge here. Also, I found (remembered) this feat which is pretty damn impressive:

Ollie doing flips and avoiding gunfire with one arm in a cast lmao.

@widowbite123: Ollie flipped through gunfire with his arm in a cast as I showed and when did Widow outmanoeuvre Hulk? And what speed feats does hulk have that make that impressive.

Funnily enough, Stephen Amell's parkour is actually pretty good. There are probably stunts that Amell can do unassisted that would take Scarlet Johanson's doubles wiring to safely pull off. Johanson herself is certainly nowhere near as good as Stephen is, which automatically makes me want to give Arrow the advantage here. Of course, once you account for wiring it becomes extremely hard to tell which fictional character is better. Some of the stuff they do are physically impossible irl, and even the non-physically impossible stuff (like flying armbars) Johanson still uses wiring for.

Seriously though, Ollie is more agile. Dodgy jumps aside, I agree with everything else that's been said here as to why.

I came in this thread to say Natasha but ended up saying “Ollie takes this category”.
