So... who thinks Malcolm will take Angel up on her request? As has already been mentioned -- even if he doesn't, their relationship is bound to be irrevocably changed by her advances.
Maybe what's going to happen is one of those Larsen moments when a big cliffhanger builds up to a very quick, low-key resolution in the very next issue. Like that time when demon-Overlord appeared after the Spawn/Dragon crossover and we were sure he was going to kick Dragon's ass... But Dragon bit off his finger and threw him in the hellpits in two panels, squat. Or when William Jonson's brother opened his closet to reveal Overlord's armor (I'm only thinking of Overlord-related examples, for some reason) and we all thought "OMG he's going to put on the armor and kick ass" but instead, somebody else was wearing the armor and he killed William's brother and that was *it* with this subplot.
So maybe the first page of the next issue will be :
(Splash page) Malcolm : "Are you KIDDING?"
Second page :
Angel : ... Yes.
Malcolm : ...
Angel : But you did hesitate for a second, you big perv. Eww!
Malcolm: Oh, shut up! Let's go kick some alien ass...!
Angel : I'm with you on that, *little brother*.
