Jarvis's comment was crude and totally out of line--and character. What could he possibly have against Tigra? Is Bendis inferring he has to clean her litter box? Or was it a clumsy reference to her 'betrayal' status during CW?

Yes, Carol's stupid, inane remark about Hank Pym made no sense--these people are supposed to be longtime friends and collegues who have fought the baddest of the bad in life-and-death struggles, who would die for each other. So the dissing is completely inappropriate.

And to say nothing of the fact that Tony and Hank worked closely on Clor. They're long, longtime associates--Tony shouldn't have let that remark pass.

Bendis has a fairly low opinion of humanity--that's all I can come up with. His work on the traditional title and NA certainly suggests that.

I like Natasha a lot, so I'm glad to see her on the team--she's a big plus for me, as is Jan. But Natasha needs to get her long tresses back.

The rest, I'm not so keen on. Wonder Man I could do without, especially in those clothes. Sentry? Yuch. Ares--well, he has potential. I'm not a huge Ms. Marvel fan either, and let's face it, it's really Tony's team anyway. Carol's just a figurehead.

Peace, CC.

Colleagues, yes, comrades in arms, yes, " die for each other " yes, friends probably not. Even historically, the Avengers has been the most professional, mission-focused, by-the-book superhero team in the Marvel Universe, one which is a tool devoted to getting the job done. Being an Avenger means that you're devoted to saving lives, not making friends. Especially nowadays, with the militarization of the superhero team.

If it were the Fantastic Four, this sort of remark would be uncalled for because members of that team are family. Even if it were the X-Men, it wouldn't fly because that team is organized so that the members become extended family in their struggle against the power. But the Avengers? The nature of that organization is such that it doesn't care if you like or loathe your teammates, as long as you can work with them on the battlefield. The fact that friendships and relationships have formed on the Avengers is incidental to the nature of the group.

I should also note that Carol's likely referring to the infamous divorce of Hank and Jan, since he was a domestic abuser and she's a feminist, so it doesn't seem particularly jarring for her not to like him.
