Is anyone else sick and tired of throwaway lines implying sexual relationships between Avengers members that have never shown any on-panel chemistry whatsoever ever?

Have I just not read the issues where Hawkeye and Moondragon had that sort of interaction? Neither of those characters seem like each other's type whatsoever. I don't have all of her earliest appearances with the team, but from the ones I have read, I was under the impression that she latched onto Thor as a romantic target right away partly because she saw herself as a goddess. I would think she would have seen Hawkeye as beneath her. (I set myself up for a joke there)

We also had Thor/Hellcat alluded to in Avengers Prime, another nonsensical pairing. Seems like there have been several Avengers ladies linked to Cage via offhand remarks, but I can't recall who. Photon and Tigra?

And in a separate but related complaint, the Bendis Hawkeye is a total sleaze. With Jessica's "her too?" comment, I'm wondering how many other notches have been written into Hawkeye's bed-post that I just don't know about.

Since I'm waiting for the post-Bendis era to start reading again, can anyone catch me up on all the hookups that have been retconned in? Hawkeye or otherwise.

I wonder why they don't mention that Sersi is a telepath. Mantis would also be useful in that regard nowadays, though the Avengers might not actually know that given that she only started showing full blown telepathy in her recent space appearances. Julia Carpenter now has Madame Web's powers, so she would be another option. If any of those three are on the viewscreen in that promo, I don't recognize them.
