Q: Please explain game effects that occur when a character is
“engaged” in combat.
A: If a character has a game effect that is triggered when the
character is “engaged” with another character, then that
character must actively be in combat (either as attacker or
blocker) with the opposing character when the game effect is
supposed to occur. If that character is removed from combat
before their game effect would trigger, that character’s effect
will not occur
. As an example, Black Widow Natural has a card effect
of, “At the end of the attack step, spin each character engaged with Black Widow down 1 level.”If Black Widow,Natural,would be KO’ed due to damage taken in the Assign Damage step (or otherwise removed from combat
before the end of the attack step), then she is no longer actively
engaged with any opposing characters so her game effect would
not occur.


So Black widow does not make it to the end of the attack step because she was KO'd so she would have to survive the whole attack step and survive after being assigned damage to apply her ability?

Correct. Her ability happens at the end of the attack step, after damage has been assigned and resolved - if she's no longer engaged with them (KO'd), her ability won't trigger.

+1

For that reason, it's a pretty boring ability; there are very few characters that would a) not knock her out, and b) not get knocked out by her, by the end of the attack step.

True, but it's better than a blank text box (see Falcon and Ant-Man in UXM). It also has good synergy with the Smash! global.
