Guess who this is:
This superhero...
-shows concern for the women Avengers well being.
-sets up a cute Jan sarcasm.
-takes a sucker punch from Thundra.
-wears a costume (if only a guantlets&belt).
-enjoys bachelor celebrating.
-enjoys tossing around the pigskin.
-shows concern for the cleanliness of the Mansion.
-teases and later reprimands Hawkeye
-willing to falsely accuse the Hulk.
-says 'Oh geez'.
-talks to his mama on the phone (he's a Mama's boy).
-reprimands Hawkeye.
-is introduced to Batroc and pins him easier than any Avenger.
-upset that Cap would make him go on a date.
-is paired with Thundra...and brings her flowers!
-is intimidated by Thundra.
-upset that Batroc set him up on a blind dates.
-willingly washes a couple hundred dishes.

The answer: Luke Cage in...

Marvel Adventures Avengers 35

Not sure when 'this superhero' joined but its good to see the membership expansion - it was... interesting to see him appear to be more PG13 than Spidey or Cap. Especially after coming to accept the bad-ass version established since MAX's Alias hit the LCS. But this take on him does suit the title. And if you are in the mood for a quick, fun, self-contained Avengers story, with decent art, and one of the better light-hearted Marvel villains then this ish is fine.

Other fun stuff:
-Good cover.
-A fun take on a typical Thundra (w/no worries about her continuity disruption).
-Clever title and dating service name.
-Spidey funny like Spidey should be funny - and even Cap is comical in a dignified way.
-Hawkeye appropriately the catalyst for the chaos that ensues - not to mention him able to score extra dates,
-The surprise reveal that it is Batroc was well done and his rationalization to start the fight was spot on.
-The dating team- err... match-ups that would never occur in a million years but were very smileworthy, in fact, the one is H4H MB bannerworthy to tempt topical traffic for Power Man!

-Cameos by (women dressed as?) Dreamqueen, Snowbird, and Crimson Cowl were Easter Eggs - no idea who Cuckoo is: http://stashbox.org/514386/ma-av35cage.JPG
-The gag ending was perfectly hokey - in a good way.
