Love Hank's expression as Simon rescused him from Poundcakes.

And fun though this is, my inner geek is telling me to point out that this Titania, the one who married Crusher Creel is the one who debuted in Secret Wars, and is not the earlier character to use the name who was a member of the wrestling team known as The Grapplers (which consisted of Titania, Letha (both of whom were killed by the Scourge of the Underworld so this must be ANOTHER Letha too), Poundcakes and Screaming Mimi (later Songbird))... so this is some sort of Grapplers cosplay group?

The art does mitigate the tediousness of " it's funny because the man's the one going ' I didn't like that ' and the woman's the one going ' Well you looked like you would ".

(Inversion punchlines- because why not help suggest any permutation other than the understood norm is inherently ridiculous?)

I think Letha was one of the ones who "got better" when the Hood resurrected a bunch of Scourge's victims to go after the Punisher. And Titania being all into hanging out with strong women, maybe she's a huge fan of wrestling supervillains... maybe they met during the whole Superia Strategem thing.

That's my attempt to logic this delightful assemblage into being, because this story seems kinda cheesy awesome.

A possible deleted scene:

Grapplers: *walk into a bar* "Titania! Great! We heard you were alive again!"

Titania: *looks uncertain* "Um, sorry, but... who are you?"

Grapplers: "Your old team--what, don't tell us you got a side of amnesia?"

Titania: "Umm... oh. Oh! Sorry, I didn't know someone'd used this name before. I'm not your Titania."

Grapplers: "Aww. Dammit. We came all this way, set to party."

Titania: "Well, I hate to spoil a good trip. Buy a round and tell me about her?"

Just two guys, hanging out, getting drunk, talking about old times...

While clearly, obviously, not being gay in any way whatsoever.
... yeeeaaah.

-"Aren't all your conflicts self-inflicted?"
"That's racist!"-
... If it's alright, just gonna assume that Hank is several beers to the wind already, and that's why he's being an idiot.
Simon actually has a... has a p-... he...
Ugh. Can't even say it.
Simon is the one not being a twat.
Most of the X-Men's problems over the last five years (and beyond) ARE self-inflicted.
(Well, okay, usually inflicted by Jason Aaron, but in-story, mostly by the X-Men themselves. And even then, that's usually Wolverine's fault.)

-"I was a little... off. My ionic field was in flux."-
Cleaning up after Bendis.
It's a growth industry!

That "storyline" was a hold heap o' nothing, but at least Gage tries to explain what the heck was going on.

-"You don't know what it's like to be the super-science guy all the time! "Hank, cure this plague! Hank, stop Armageddon!""-
Well, maybe if you weren't on the crawl with your boyfriend, they wouldn't have to keep asking you to help. Because you'd be there, doing your actual JOB, wouldn'cha?

Unless, of course, the X-Men actually need your help.

No, seriously, the X-Men's problems ARE self-inflicted (except when they aren't). And Simon was being charitable and saying MOST superhero teams create their own problems. He was having an intelligent meta-commentary and Hank chose to start a fight about something personal. Twit.

Well....superheroes creating a lot of their own problems may be a problem, but Simon became a symptom of that issue when he became an antagonist. Complaining that he doesn't count because he was insane so sorry at the time is irrelevant. All villains have personal issues that drive them to assault people...

Simon wasn't just "in flux" he was having a Donna Troy level existential crisis: "Am I really Simon Williams or an idealized version created from Wanda Maximoff's memories?"

Simon's pacifist phase was... very strange. Not that there's anything wrong with pacifism, I'm largely one myself. But it's strange to see in a super-hero comic, especially with a character as powerful as Simon is.

But Hank and Simon's friendship has always been a delight.

And when they're well written, I love the relationship between Crusher and Mary.

Maybe Simon was feeling really bad for that time he killed Hawkeye through negligence (and gunpowder).

Simon put together a team and picked a fight with the Avengers. Not very pacifistic.

True, but at some point after that, he joined the Uncanny Avengers and refused to throw a punch.

The Avengers causing more problems than they solve would require a lot more than their squabbles, since the ones they solve often involve the survival of the Earth, species, universe, whatever.

Still, Simon's not exactly the... deepest thinker, so I'll allow it. Has a better prespective on Hank than Hank does, too.

In retrospect, yes, Hank's "I WILL NOW REARRANGE THE TIMELINE TO EXERCISE MY PERSONAL ANNOYANCE" is kind of dangerous..

Heck, at the time people thought it was a horrible idea! And that was before they found out that 'stay for a few weeks then send them back with a blanked memory' was out of the question.

So, the way I read Beast's statement about the nickname "Poundcakes" makes me think she's into pegging.

Also, remember the Hank from the last run of Exiles that was in a relationship with Simon?
