Have you ever seen Eagle vs. Shark? It's an absolutely fantastic story of a loser girl who falls in love with an even bigger loser. Check it out and you'll be glad you did.
It kind of reminded me of another love story involving a mutant, an alien, and android. It goes a little something like this, courtesy of Avengers v1 #125-126:
The Vision made a compliment about Mantis to her boyfriend, the Swordsman. Since the Swordsman has a small weenie (why do he think he carries that sword?), he takes it that the Vision has the hots for Mantis. Mantis goes all drama queen:
But, as a woman, Mantis is interested in getting as much attention from as many different sources as she can:
This, of course, annoys the Scarlet Witch, who stares longingly at the Vision's Glamour Shot(tm!):
and she decides that since he is a male android, he is only as faithful as his options:
But Wanda is willing to fight for her man/appliance, so she gives herself a makeover, which consists of ditching that horrible tiara and nagging the Vision every chance she gets:
Take note, ladies! When your relationship is in trouble, nothing will bring your man closer to you than nagging. Use it early and often!
Oh, and there are other members of the Avengers, too:
For once, I agree with Captain America. This is Marvel's flagship team? I'm starting to look around for those last copies of U.S.1. Consider this my Valentine's Day salute to love, as well as a cautionary tale of allowing women in the workplace. (I keed, I keed)
See you tomorrow!
