Issue(s): Avengers #224
Tony Stark notices that the Wasp is a hot babe, and hey, she's single now, so why not move in on that action?
Janet doesn't know that Stark is Iron Man, which complicates things.
Captain America steps in and tells Tony he's being an ass.
Thor also has some words for Tony.
So Iron Man shows up at Janet's place and takes the helmet off, effectively ending their fling.
She-Hulk still doesn't have a proper costume (but it's a step up from her torn hospital gown)...
...and she's going stir-crazy living at the Avengers Mansion.

Alan Zelenetz was primarily used as Doug Moench's replacement on Thor, Moon Knight, King Conan, Master of Kung Fu, and maybe one other title. King Conan under Alan was considered to be quite good, but Thor nearly got cancelled under his reign and Master of Kung Fu actually did. Moon Knight ended too, but as part of a direct-sales-to-newsstand conversion.

The title of this issue was probably referring to the infamous 1982 film that some say ruined Francis Ford Coppola called "One From the Heart".

So this brings up the question, does Hank know that Tony is Iron Man? It seems that he does, but if so, when did he learn it? And if Hank knew, why wouldn't Jan?

Slott later revealed in Mighty Avengers that Pym found out Tony was Iron Man early in his career and that exacerbated his feelings of inferiority, which is why he never told Jan.

Good to know that it hadn't actually been revealed. But really, like I said once before, figuring out that Tony is Iron Man really isn't that hard. It's really surprising that more Avengers didn't know it.

Very good issue, and a good example of why I've always loved the character drama in The Avengers more than the action.

Retcons don't fix crappy stories with gynourmous plot holes @michael, certainly not 30 years later.
