Are there any real-life sciences and/or technologies, existent or "emerging", that are good candidates of eventually leading to this trope becoming Truth in Television if they ever bear fruit?

Gattaca? Where before birth you can decide on exactly how you want your child to be and the intelligent geneticists will play around with DNA then let the child be developed in a lab.

Also, does the Black Widow count?

That's Designer Babies.

RE Black Widow: Can you be more specific? AFAIK she's a Badass Normal.

Would the soldierboosts in schlockmercenary count as this? Some of them are derived from nanotechnology but I think there are some that are more or less biological in their nature.

I don't think they have any nanotech boosts aside from Kevyn's temporary Laz'r'us nannies. The ones they all have seem to be either Super Serum or tacked on during their bodily reconstructions, so maybe. Doythaban's "secreted weapons" definately count.
