That would be my assumption.
Also, on the subject of Wondy's costume, I think this scene may also explain why Simon's been back in the safari jacket in SECRET INVASION despite getting a new costume in recent issues of MA--and being shown in the new costume in this issue.
Given how aggressively Carol was throwing herself at Simon here, I think it is quite likely that she literally ripped the costume off his body. So, Simon is using the old safari jacket outfit until he can get his new costume repaired or replaced.

Exactly. Carol is using Simon here for comfort and a distraction. This could be a potential problem...especially when/if William returns to the mix. (perhaps Carol can talk him into a threesome...as long as William stays on the correct side of the bed )

Likely, although Simon's attitudes about women have certainly gotten updated since his return from his death-like-coma, and he has had some experience of serving under a lover before (when Wanda was deputy leader of the Avengers). But he's never served under a lover as his full-time boss before.

Fingers crossed. In any event, it should be interesting!
