You’re worried about me? You are Sharon Carter, right? Not a Life Model Decoy?
There’s a lot of talk about Sharon Carter, that she doesn’t support Steve enough or care about him enough or that she’s too mean to him, and those are probably true at times, but rarely do people talk about the fact that Steve is a dick right back. And sometimes he is a dick unprovoked. Steve is not a shrinking violet; he can be aggressive and outspoken and rude with the best of them.
Like here, Sharon has gone out of her way to make sure he’s all right, that he’s not putting himself in unnecessary danger, and Steve is making snide comments about her. And this is not new. Steve has been an asshole to Sharon plenty of times in the past.
Back in v3, Steve was forcing Sharon into conversations with which she was not comfortable, trying to get her to admit her feelings for him (He was also dating someone else at this time.) He was frustrated with her because he didn’t know her anymore, didn’t understand what had happened to her to change her so much, but that doesn’t excuse his behavior. Steve has been ridiculously pushy at times with her.
So let’s stop pretending like poor Steve has been victimized by that mean old Sharon, because that’s not true. Steve’s not a child. He can handle himself in his relationships.
