If'n Cap is going to swing that way, it's going to be with the Falcon buddy.

and 2) she's apparently bald. Knowing Marvel's happy couple history, next issue she dies of cancer.
Was this really the first time they've kissed on panel? I'm pretty sure I've seen it before.
I don't see this as comparable to the Archie situation at all. So the lack of press/outrage on Wiccan and Hulkling kissing doesn't surprise me. For one thing, Marvel didn't build the whole comic around this one moment and then go around to different media outlets to advertise what they were selling. Which is what Archie does every three months. And, also, this is an Avengers comic whose target audience is about 30. Meanwhile, the Archie issue was in Toys R Us. So of course some people are going to complain about it.
I fully support Archie (and Marvel) having comics with these themes, but the outrage shouldn't surprise anyone. I mean, religious people don't like to see homosexuality advertised to them. Period. If you had a culinary magazine that advertised "ALL PORK RECIPES!" on the cover, and you distributed that magazine to grocery stores frequented by a mostly Muslim or Judaic customer base, then you'd get complaints about that too. I'm not trying to downplay that "Million Moms" organization, because it is truly despicable. But religious people just not wanting to see this stuff is hardly surprising. To a degree, it's even "understandable", as long as you're not apologizing for the more extreme religious people who don't have a live-and-let-live philosophy.
I'm really sick of intolerance. Intolerance of gays is probably more harmful and widespread than intolerance of people's religious beliefs, but as an agnostic who just sort of stands on the sidelines, I frankly think that some people's lack of tolerance for religious people is pretty hypocritical. They're not all "Million Moms"-types who hate anyone different from them. Most religious people who don't "approve" of homosexuality are more like Jewish people who just don't approve of pork. They don't care if other people eat pork, but they don't eat it themselves and can't be expected to actively enjoy seeing magazines that say "Pork Recipes! Buy me or else you're a bigot!"
My bad, I saw the quote about giving fans what they wanted and I didn't think they meant an alternate reality female Iron Woman I'd never heard of. Just saw the armor and assumed (still kind of assume) he meant Iron Man. I still stand by my statement about the Falcon.
