Children's Crusade #4: THE BIG ONE

Assuming you are as big a fan as I am, you also screamed something both guttural and squeaky from the deep recesses of your throat and then promptly began sobbing and crying for joy while making sounds reminiscent of the Muppets' Beaker.

Or maybe it's just me.

The last page of Avengers: The Children's Crusade #4. HUGE HUGE HUGE SPOILERS. I'M WARNING YOU NOW, IT'S REALLY BIG.

But first, something from Avengers #5, posted a few months ago. Look at the entry after "Return of the King"

Ironlad (re)turns.

I am not getting my hopes up too much for now, because of the way it was written, but let us remove all doubts for a moment and simply bask in the joy of getting our favorite teen team leader back.

Heinberg, if you fake out now, I will rip something painful.

WTF KIND OF ENDING IS THIS? It makes me happy, and yet also enraged.

And the rest of the issue seemed a bit short. My sad face is imminent.

I thought you meant that we might have seen Teddy and Billy finally being allowed to kiss.... Iron Lad... not so much.

I've been under the impression that we never have seen them kiss.

Not that I recall, though we did get Billy making them a double bed when he unleashed his interior decorating spell..

Maybe it's just my own sheltered existence, but I tend to assume that when people sleep together kissing might be implied (unless one of them is a prostitute).

I have to admit that I`m beginning to suspect that Heinberg is deliberately delaying the kiss because he now knows that fans want it so badly. Initially I was pretty certain that Heinberg was avoiding it because he didn`t know if Marvel would be okay with it (after all, he was initially surprised to even find out that they would let him have a gay couple), but if he`s allowed to put them sleeping in the same bed, albeit with clothing, I`m pretty sure the kiss is being delayed to build up anticipation.

That said, I might be overly optimistic.
