And they have Alex Ross to introduce the new couple in All-New, All-Different Avengers #4

Yup, it's Thor smooching Captain America and okay, my apologies for the clickbaiting cut text.

Likewise apologies to those who, like myself, might have had a mental image of Chris' Evan and Hemsworth in passionate liplock (though if I have only just given you that mental image, you're welcome) but this is a pretty interesting couple.

Um....Jane is dying of cancer and I'm pretty sure she's married plus didn't Sam just have something starting with Misty?

She hasn't been married in a while, and apparently Sam and Misty just work together now.

I thought Carol was still sort of with James Rhodes? I'm not quite up to date on Captain Marvel.

Carol was dating Rhodeybefore she went into space.

And now I'm bothered by the James Rhodes / Sam Wilson parallel.

Even though right now it's more because he's black, in hindsight it'll still make sense. Still, I wholeheartedly agree. Marvel doesn't know how to execute representation smartly. Lazy thinking, lazy writing.

I've been miffed that Misty and Danny broke off since Iron Fist/Heroes For Hire. That was an OTP for me:P

Well, that pairing was brought back but briefly just recently in the Secret Wars: Secret Love one-shot. It was a really good short story.

I do agree that it should be back in mainstream continuity, though. If the new Power Man and Iron Fist series doesn't have the Daughters of the Dragon as supporting cast, I'll be very disappointed.

Even the daughter of one of Steve's greatest enemies found Sam "desirable." BTW, I hope that she comes back at some point, she was a cool character.

I'm down with this. They're facing some similar issues right now. I can easily see them commiserating and finding support.

Yea, I've seen a lot more flimsy pairings.

Depends a bit on how it's done, but could be quite good. And the art there is certainly fantastic!

How are their situations the same, short of filling in for Cap and Thor? I thought the circumstances were pretty different in each case.

They're both taking on the mantles of iconic heroes, with all the pressure and expectations that brings. And they've faced some similar reactions, both in-universe and out.

From: [personal profile] jekylls_salvation
I don't know, I think most of Jane's reaction was before we knew it was Jane. And of course Marvel's execution of it making no sense in general. But Falcon filling in for Cap is a no brainer. They're best buds. I think it's all been blown out of proportion.

I actually expected Jane/Steve. I haven't trained myself to think of Sam when someone says, "Captain America."

Is this the first time showing an interracial kiss on one of The Big Two's covers? I honestly can't recall seeing another before now.

I really hope not, because 2015 seems awfully late to do one.
From: [personal profile] 7dialsmystery
...aka Luke Cage and Jessica Drew get married. That's the earliest I could find.


First inter-racial kiss in comics was between Misty Knight and Ironfist in 1977.

From: [personal profile] skemono
That may have been the first interracial kiss in superhero comics, but there were some others in mainstream (i.e. code-approved) comics a few years before. I believe Creepy 43's tale "The Men Who Called Him Monster" was the first, in January 1972. Then the first interracial kiss in a color comic was in Amazing Adventures 31, July 1975, between M'Shulla and Carmilla Frost.

Incidentally, Don McGregor wrote both of those.

I can't think of a specific cover, but I'm pretty sure Ororo has been featured in an interracial kiss in the past.

...It just seems, odd, is all. Like, have they interacted at all? Or is this gonna be part of the book going forward? (since it's only issue 4)

I'll wait for scans to see how it plays.

I will say this- Alex Ross is great, but there's often a static-ness to his art. Not here, it feels dynamic!

So even for an Alex Ross work, this looks fantastic ^^

1. That cover art is GORGEOUS!!
2. I wasn't expecting this (they seemed to be setting up Sam and Misty Knight as a romantic couple in his own book).
3. I actually liked him with Jet Black (Arnim Zola's daughter) and I'm still annoyed with how Remender handled that whole thing.
4. Does he know that she's Jane Foster, or that she has cancer, or that using the power of Thor is killing her even faster?
5. What will the OG Thor think when he finds out?

Basically, this is intriguing. So we'll see how it goes.

Hmmm, I can learn to love this pairing.
A shame it's not the OG Thor and Cap, but I can manage.
I'm intrigued to hear what Odinson has to say about this,
hopefully they won't write him as clingy douchebag for drama.

He still doesn't know that Nu-Thor is Jane, at least not that I'm aware.
