I love this scene so damn much.
“…and don’t look now, but Mockingbird is giving you the stink eye,”
“What did I do now?”
“You’re dating her ex-husband.”
“No I’m not.”
“Well, whatever you call it, she knows about it.”
“How does she know about it?”
“He probably told her.”
“What the hell?”
“I’m just saying—”
“I told you.”

Clint, you don’t have anyone to blame but yourself for that death-glare.
(The facial expressions in these panels are brilliant…)
Jen: …Clint, you sleep with Jan, Jan, that makes you drink a lotta margaritas. Wanda, Drunk-Jan says something that drives you crazy…and then you start killing everybody!
So whatever you do, don’t sleep with Jan. Don’t drink the margaritas. Wanda, get some serious help! Got that?! No sex! No booze! See a shrink!
[She-Hulk (2004) #3]
This remains my favorite summary of Disassembled ever.
This is what I’m talking about. This is what my tag commentary on the Clint + Jen post is talking about. Jen’s got this.
Continuing Clint’s love of aggressive women who are too good for him, She-Hulk. Despite treating her initially with disdain and aggression Jen and Clint eventually become close friends. Clint leaves Jen a very sentimental video after his death and Jen attempts repeatedly during her time traveling trips to keep Clint from dying. Over the years they have shared two kisses, both of which Jen initiated (one of which Jen initiated simply to put Clint in his place so maybe we shouldn’t count it).
I’d read a mini-series of just Jen putting Clint into his place. Maybe just a one shot of Jen going through the wreckage of his love life and trying to make sense of it all… maybe “making sense of it all” involves a few firm punches to the arm.
