Reposted from the original scans_daily. (Finally)










Record scratch.





Of course, this doesn't happen right away, and there are a few obstacles...








And finally... the date!








But alas! It was not to be.





However... at least they still worry about each other? I dunno.





And thus began (or continued) the trend of Carol and Wanda going for the same men. Vision, Wonderman.... yeah.

Ah, much love for Busiek Avengers. I thought this pairing was pretty awesome, even if it never got off the ground.

Vision's human self appears to be Ra's Al Ghul. Interesting?

They're a funny crack pairing kinda like Firestorm and Powergirl. Would've been funny to see their continued dates.

Ra's Al Ghul.

I'll let you know that Ras/Dinah had a something-something going on in BOP, I'm not sure on the details myself perhaps someone else can fill you in on the details.

Nope but that would make my day.

Just a reference to how well they jived in those old JLA/JSA teamups.

I did like that era of Vision. Of course, it was not to be. He's related to her arch-enemy, you understand.

Can't believe I've never seen this before..

Somehow I missed this when it first came out. So thanks for posting it!

Love Jan's bored look at Hank's technobabble. And Wanda (And indeed Carol's) shocked reaction at Vision looking for a date is just priceless!

I like Carol's wistful look as she tosses aside the hot dog: "Sigh, no tube steak for me tonight..." ;-)

I used to wonder if Rogue would ever become romantically involved with Wonder Man, as she couldn't absorb ionic energy. Then, decades later, Ms. Marvel gets involved with Wonder Man. Wild.

They can both fly. Why do they need the jet-skis?

I found this subplot moderately interesting through the series, though it never really went anywhere.

I didn't really care for it - him asking her out is really awkward (what's Wanda going to do, say "no I'm not comfortable with one of my friends dating you" right there in front of the entire Avengers team?) in a way that never really gets dealt with. It seems like we're just meant to take Wanda's statement there at face value. And Carol's "oh hey suddenly I'm intrigued" just feels kind of arbitrary - I guess they shared some interesting moments off-panel?

I wonder if that's just me, though, because thinking about it now I can't recall a single canon Carol romance I've found at all interesting, and only one I've even found particularly convincing.

I thought something interesting could have been done with it, but, frankly, Busiek's strength in this particular run wasn't characterization. I agree there never was much insight into what she saw in him.

As for Carol romances, I liked her and Simon.

At the time, it struck me that Vision was even more awkward than Peter Parker in asking someone out on a date.

Armor of God II and Wicked City!

Good job, Beast.

Wow, I haven't read Marvel in like twenty years. Wanda is my favorite Avenger and back then I found her marrying Vision rather strange, so I'm not too hung up that they split up (when was that anyway?).

I don't like her costume here though. Why does she wear a collar and what's with that harem girl belt?

Because y'know. All Roma went around dressed like that.

Yes, I know it's kind of late

Or because Perez wanted to indulge in some PSL, Wanda's not wearing any underwear under that skirt.
