So anyway, that's when Steve Rogers and Tony Stark go out on a double date with Carol Danvers and Jessica Drew:

The role of Carol and Jessica's sassy straight best friend is played by Jessica Jones (not seen in this issue).

Also, fyi, Incredible Hulk #2 is all about the relationship between Tony and Bruce. The way the movieverse is percolating through the comicsverse is kind of adorable.

Avengers Assemble #9 by Kelly Sue de Connick & Stefan Casseli highly recommended to sciencebros fans. Avengers Assemble #10 highly recommended to fans of Bruce/Tony.

For example (image) )

It also offers some candy for Carol Danvers/Steve Rogers shippers and friendshippers.

Like so (image) )

I know I mostly only talk about Steve/Tony here, but I do actually like the Avengers comics for other reasons as well. I like Jonathan Hickman's writing and Jerome Opeña's art, but Hickman strikes me as writer whose work is cooler, emotionally, than Bendis'. Bendis's Avengers appealed to me because of the warmth he brings to his best work, but also because I think he writes Captain America and Iron Man as really, really shippy. I expected the dynamic to read differently in the Hickman era, and I expected to find a lot of enjoyment in it, even if less fertile ground for fanfiction.

This is the first exchange between Steve and Tony in Hickman and Opeña's relaunch, Avengers #1:

Thanks, Jonathan Hickman! You're the best.

Bendis Looks Back on His Term as the Avengers Assemblyman:

"What Mark Millar ended up writing and what I thought was interesting about 'Civil War' were two different things. I asked if he was going to do a story at the end where Iron Man and Cap have it out over Cap's dead body. He had no interest in that, but I thought it was the best part of the whole thing," Bendis explained.

I feel that this quote encapsulates why I have diametrically opposed feelings towards Mark Millar and Brian Bendis as writers.

So today on Twitter it came up that Marvel comics and movies actually exist in the Marvel universe. Naturally, this involved discussion of the Iron Man TV series, and how Tony Stark is rumored to have slept with the actor who played him, who is now his AA sponsor. (Which is really inappropriate if they actually did sleep together. I know: Tony Stark, inappropriate? Never, you say.)

I thought some of you might like to see the actual references.

Sadly, I could not find the crowd scene where some lady tells Tony Stark she thinks he's much better looking than Robert Downey, Jr. Instead I present to you the most recent bit of Steve/Tony shippery written by Brian Michael Bendis. Because I can.

There is also that time Spider-man says Steve and Tony are the mom and dad of the Avengers )
