Confirmed that Peggy and Bianca weren't just play-flirting, anyway...
Why do people keep assuming that Peggy/Bianca had to be either: 1) play-flirting or 2) finding true love with each other?

How about they just wanted to have a friendly roll in the hay for old times' sake?

I'm guessing Bianca is involved in something Gwynn wouldn't approve of... some shady, dangerous business, probably illegal... :-s poor Peggy, she'll be really sad and disappointed...

Of course, the other possibility is that Bianca is working for the government's secret service and actually is a Canadian James Bond of sorts? (He-ey, I wouldn't mind that one at all! :ymblushing: )

I see Bianca's and Peggy's future:

I don't know about (2), but for (1), while it's not quite accurate to say we hadn't seen her show an interest in women, it was always kind of kicking-and-screaming? For that reason, play-flirting made more sense than having had a female FWB for her character's entire run.

So... we were confused as to whether scene a or scene b would happen with a Cblock for both WHEN AN ACTION SCENE BROKE OUT :D

Oh, you mean THOSE Avengers - the ones I vaguely know as "Mit Schirm, Charme und Melone".

Sorry, never watched that, OLD CHAP. :P

I think of it as old-fashioned enough that it’s usually used as a joke, but I run into occasionally on that basis.

Actually, I’d define it as something like “mistress” with overtones of, well, cheapness and especially loose sexual morals; the sort of woman you see hanging off the arm of a bad guy in an old-fashioned gangster movie, chewing gum and possibly making eyes at the hero. Definitely dated, of course, and not quite the right word here, though I get what Zii is saying.

By the way, I wonder if someone really sharpened the cheese grater.

The lines in the last panel are what's calle "action" lines rather than "speed" lines and are meant to convey that the panel is a fleeting moment of a dynamic fast-paced sequence

Nah, we know she was educated in Canada. The Black Widows were a Soviet programme. She’s more like a product of the Canadian branch of the other Avengers organisation.
I thought it was a reference to that terrible Dean Martin spy series, but that was "The Ambushers." Turned out not to be too far off.

Anyhow, if we’re talking about possible inspirations for Bianca — well TV Tropes has a fairly extensive list.
