Funny / Ms. Marvel

  • In the very first issue of Carol's Captain Marvel series, Absorbing Man takes a number of shots at Carol, calling her Captain America's secretary and deriding Captain America for taking orders from a woman.
    Carol: "This 'broad' left the service a full bird colonel. So technically, I outrank him."
    Steve: "I've been trying to get you demoted for years."
  • Later, he succeeds in finally demoting her:
    Steve: "Bottom line is this: you have lead the Avengers. You have saved the world. Quit being an adjunct... take the mantle."
    Steve: "Unless you don't think you can handle it."
    Carol: "Wait, did you just dare me?"
    Steve: "You're Air Force. Always works."
