In the Marvel Universe, Earthlings are not alone. Along with them co-exists extraterrestrial life forms with technology far more advanced than our own. At times these extra-terrestrials sought to invade, enslave, or destroy us. Fortunately, Marvel’s impressive list of heroes always rises to the occasion, to save the Earth and the universe from such threats. That being said, not all aliens are bad, and there are handfuls who work with our earthly superheroes to save the world. Interstellar travel is also a big part of Marvel, so it’s no surprise that occasionally such characters are frequently courting, seducing, and shacking up with one another light years from home. With that in mind let’s take a look at the time when our resident genius, billionaire, playboy, and philanthropist hooked up with the deadliest woman in the galaxy.
What kind of playboy would Tony Stark be if he had never hooked up with an extraterrestrial?
In 2013’s Guardians of the Galaxy #4, Tony Stark goes to a bar in outer space to have a drink with the Guardians of the Galaxy, while admiring their alien technology. Later on, Stark turns on the charm and flirts a great deal with Gamora.
Tony and Gamora go back to the ship for some alone time, where her reputation as the ‘most dangerous woman in the universe’ proves itself. After their rendezvous, Gamora goes back to the bar, leaving Tony shirtless in bed. All Iron Man can say after she leaves is, “Ow.” Maybe he should’ve worn his armor.
