Common Tropes

  • With the The Avengers (2012) release, the lack of Betty Ross (and other female characters) disappointed fans. There has been several stories of her being introduced into the MCU. This is of course usually by Bruce Banner, although sometimes it is more of a background/past-relationship for other Bruce ships. However there has been an intake of fics with Betty working for SHIELD or for Stark, as well as her joining the "scientist team" (Jane Foster, Tony Stark, Bruce Banner). She's also considered to be friends with Jane Foster, Darcy Lewis, Pepper Potts and Natasha Romanova in most of the fics and art work she's apart of.[1]


The largest pairing for Betty Ross is with Bruce Banner, which is a canon pairing in most Hulk universes.
