Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner recently got into a little hot water for joking about Black Widow’s sex life. But it raises a good question: Who, precisely, gets around the most in the Avengers? Let’s go to the comics and take it Avenger by Avenger, shall we?

Captain America



Cap doesn’t actually have that much of a romantic history, which is strange for a blonde, blue-eyed man with a perfect physique. Needless to say, this has raised a few questions about Cap’s sexuality, something even Marvel has made a little fun of.

By and large, though, Cap’s been a one-woman kind of guy. Back in the ’40s, he was with Betsy Ross… yes, we know, this is a comic book that debuted with Cap punching Hitler’s lights out on the cover, subtlety is not the name of the game here. In modern comics, though, he’s largely been with Sharon Carter. Although that doesn’t mean certain female Avengers haven’t thought about it.

The Hulk



As you might expect, a man with severe emotional problems who freaks out at the tiniest little thing doesn’t get much action. The Hulk has largely spent his time wandering the Marvel universe either single or in a long-term relationship with Betty Ross, which meant for a time the guy sending giant robots to beat him up was also his father-in-law.

He’s had better luck off-planet, actually: He’s dated the princess of a sub-atomic kingdom and even had a happy marriage until Iron Man and Reed Richards screwed that one up big-time.
