Your Happenstance panels for today:

From Hulk 2000, "Basic Instinct" Written by Paul Jenkins, art by Mark Texiera with Richard Clark. Guest-starring the Avengers, this is the issue where the Hulk tries to...get with, his cousin, the She-Hulk. Jen of course will have no part of that, but instead of merely being creeped out, she ends up feeling miserable for abandoning him. (Jen also appears in a winsomely wholesome milk ad on the back cover!)

Oh, um, but hey, Iron Man! This wasn't set in the seventies, this was during the surprisingly long stretch in 2000 or so where Tony went back to the old suit, after his current model gained sentience and went bad. It wasn't a bad idea, but I maintain it went on way too long. It was the equivalent of Tony just burning out and showing up for work in a hoodie and baseball cap for a while, just phoning it in.

Still, more nice Texiera art, and that's it for this week!
