Okay no, ignore that! There’s no such thing as a consistent bro-ship in comics lately, unless you look at Luke Cage and Iron Fist, but even that has become scarce! However I DO have a few books to recommend!
Avengers Prime. This was one of the breakout books of Marvel’s recent The Heroic Age, which brought Steve back into the Marvel Universe, and attempted to repair a lot of the post-Civil War damage. It’s a fun, engaging limited series and while the big three are separated for a lot of it, the book basically exists to repair their friendship.
Avengers Assemble. This brand new series runs alongside the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and is your best bet for some Big Three Bro Time! A great place to jump in is coming up in November with issue #9, new writer, new story arc!
And of course, Marvel Adventures! All of the bromance, none of the drama of the regular universe! Specifically look for the Thor and Cap volume (Marvel Adventures Super Heroes vol. 2 #13-16).
Enjoy your bros!
“Who knew we would one day be fond of those horrible days of war…”
New Avengers #29
Cap and Namor being bros.
I saw that first panel, and I was just waiting for Cap to bust out ‘Namor, what the FUCK are you wearing…’
who is the big spoon/little spoon
Steve. Come on. There’s not even any contest. Tony tried to be the big spoon once, and Steve laughed so hard he toppled out of bed. And slept on the couch.
what is their favorite non-sexual activity
Basketball. Steve never got a chance to learn - he was a tiny flimsy toothpick and then war were declared. He wandered into the underground court at Tony’s Malibu place when they were packing up to move to NYC full time, and Steve asked Tony to teach him. It’s kind of stuck around.
who uses all the hot water in the morning
Steve. But mostly because he has Tony up against the wall, under the water, with one arm braced against the tiles and the other hooked under Tony’s leg. He’s got a thing about the way Tony’s eyelashes look when he’s wet that he just can’t resist.
what they order from take out
There’s a stack of menus on the fridge about a foot deep, but it usually ends up being something simple and whatever is closest. Tony flew in fish n chips from London, once, and Steve was so angry at him that they didn’t speak for a week. It’s just not worth it.
what is the most trivial thing they fight over
Aside from Tony’s abuse of private jets? What to watch on television. Because IT’S CANON.
who does most of the cleaning
Neither. With the exception of Tony’s workshop, both the penthouse and Steve’s floor are usually pretty immaculate. Tony likes to have everything in order, and Steve can’t break old habits. The workshop is usually chaos, but it’s that kind of chaos where you know where everything is. And there’s an armchair in one corner with a minifridge and a side table usually covered in sketchpads and crumpled paper.
what has a season pass in their DVR
Almost everything on HBO and Discovery, but none of it ever gets watched. By the time the both of them stop moving enough to sit down, they’re usually in bed, and by that point neither is thinking about tv.
who leaves their stuff around
Despite the fact that they practically live together, Steve still keeps his things on his floor, and Tony on his. It’s the last barrier between them being an actual 100% couple, and neither of them are willing to take the final step. Clint tried to plant one of Steve’s shoes in Tony’s closet, once, but Phil beat him eight ways from sunday for trying to incite trouble.
who remembers to buy the milk
Neither. Tony has a thing about milk (the smell makes him retch), and Steve never uses it. He drinks his coffee black and he eats toast and fruit for breakfast.
who remembers anniversaries
Jarvis and Pepper. Despite his corn-fed poster-boy-ness, Steve has enough to worry about. There’s only so much room in a man’s brain, and he’s still finding a thousand new things every day. He’s gotten really good at answer Pepper’s emails about special days, though.
