I feel people mischaracterize the Black Widow infertility reveal in Age of Ultron. The idea is not that she thinks of herself as less human because she’s incapable of having children, but rather that it was one of many things done to her to destroy her ability to feel empathy (clearly they’d all seen the movie Kill Bill and know the potential risk). She reveals it to comfort Bruce. It’s him who’s struggling with (a form of) infertility. He wants a family and kids but never can because of his other side. Her reveal to him about being infertile herself is her way of telling him it doesn’t matter. When she say’s “you think you’re only monster?” In essence what she’s telling Bruce is “The inability to have children does not mean you’re incapable of seeking happiness and normalcy. And at least what happened to you was an accident, what happened to me was done by people who wanted to make sure there was one less chance for me to emotionally connect with something that might interfere with my efficiency as a killer.”
