I haven’t shown nearly as much of this as I’d have liked in the comic, but Anvil and Max are pretty good friends, and Anvil is concerned that Max hasn’t been on a date in a while. ( Or under a date in a while.) Not that dating her subordinate is really an option, but maybe she figures pressing her up against a prime slab of beef might ignite her interest with other options. Or she just thinks its funny to smoosh her naked teammates together.

Considering there’s a slab of concrete in between them, Max is secretly just a little impressed. And flattered. Not, you know, flattered in a “I’m validated by male attention” way. More of a “I know I’m sexy, not that being sexy is central or critical to my self identity, but it’s still nice to know that others know I’m sexy.” People are complicated.

Both Max and Hiro are stronger than Anvil, though when she’s all juiced up with kinetic energy, she could probably take Hiro. She burned most of what she had stored with that Super Suplex. Still, Max and Hiro both know to be careful with their strength, even when a friend is being totally inappropriate. Plus if Max pushed Hiro away she wouldn’t be able to cover herself.
