Iron Man #151
Issue(s): Iron Man #151
Meanwhile Tony invites Bethany Cabe's partner Ling McPherson over to help him go shopping. Which i think is kind of weird and inappropriate. I thought maybe with Bethany having seemingly skipped the scene, Tony figured he'd just start putting the moves on Ling. And what better way than to show off his money and himself by having him try on expensive suits for her?
But this will actually turn out to be the last appearance of Ling until issue #227, which will be her final appearance. Which is too bad; i kind of liked her and thought more could have been done with her.
Quality Rating: B
Chronological Placement Considerations: At the end of this issue, Tony discovers that Bethany Cabe has been captured. It's unlikely that he'll be doing anything but rescuing her next, so Iron Man #152 should be his next appearance. Pushed back in publication time so Iron Man #152-153 can take place before Avengers #212.
Continuity Insert? N
My Reprint: N/A
Inbound References (1): showAnt-Man (Scott Lang), Iron Man, Ling McPherson, Mrs. Arbogast, Vic Martinelli
Tony making the moves on Ling is totally in character for him. He's a playboy first, hero second, IMO.

Bethany Cabe mentions in IRON MAN I#301 that Ling retired from their bodyguard business.
