I don't know. It seems they were implying that the two were in love in their recent stories.
I checked. I'm not sure that should count as a definite, more on the implied side. It was only really implied by someone that had nothing to do with the relationship (Ms. Marvel), who I don't think was ever close to either Luke or Jessica Drew. Plus, I don't think there was really any seen "opportunity" for Drew and Cage. And you would think that it would have been mentioned or hinted at in New Avengers at some point.
If you look at the conversation, it could easily have been a situation where Carol was only saying that Luke Cage flirted with Drew, instead of actually having sex. So sex would have been possible, but not certain. I'm not really trying to defend Drew's honor or anything.
I think when making the list, you have to break it down into categories, confirmed, implied, and maybe even potential. And have certain criteria to fit into each group.
Back in the 90s when Wolverine was the star of Marvel Comics Presents.
Echo and Daredevil only went on one date together, really only together for one day. And the end, she left a Jazz club to get into a cab, while Matt walked on. There simply wasn't any time.
Wolverine and Echo met once in the woods, while she was on a "vision quest". There wasn't any implication of a relationship or an attraction. When they met again in New Avengers, Wolverine said he was going to eventually have sex with her. She slept with Clint instead. Again, there hasn't been any opportunity.
