New Avengers #61

#1 Posted by RozZzje (14 posts) - - Show Bio

Hi there!
I just finished reading New Avengers #61 and something caught my attention. When Spider-Man and Spider-Woman are chilling on the rooftops, Spider-Woman mentions that she was under the impression that Spider-Man is a married man. Spidey replies with a confident "Never". This got me thinking, maybe Mephisto's spell in OMD didn't work on heroes who weren't on earth at the time. Spider-Woman was abducted to some far away place, so maybe she wasn't affected by Mephisto. 
With the latest preview puzzle for Spidey's adventures in 2010, what do you think?

Brian Bradley’s quote:

“Spider-Woman’s moment is tarnished when Bendis uses this as another opportunity to reference her romantic involvement with Hawkeye. This lovers’ interaction was probably the only reason Hawkeye and Spider-Woman are in this New Avengers’ book to begin with. The reference to Spider-Woman’s killer rack and the “thing” on Hawkeye’s butt were the only downside that brought me out of this Avengers’ Great Escape-like story.”

I feel that Brian Bendis view on Hawkeye x Spider-Woman is blatantly forced down the readers throats. There is really no interesting dialog between them other than making out with each other, whereas Spider-Man x Ms. Marvel’s relationship is talking its time. The problem is that I just don’t feel that the relationship between Hawkeye x Spider-Woman is going to last very long once Bendis leaves the Avengers. I am biases on the interaction between Spider-Man x Spider-Woman, it seems like Marvel wants to promote Hawkeye x Spider-Woman to promote their love for each other since they feel that Spider-Man x Spider-Woman is too obvious.
