I think Sif confronted Lorelei about this love potion business and struck her. Lorelei said something like, "Thor, she hurt me! Hurt her back!"

And I have to say, I'm with Sif on being hesitant about putting the incident behind her.

Just goes to show, they can write or rewrite any way they want to fit the films and modernize the relationships. And thank goodness for that!!!
I'm reading JMS' _Thor Omnibus_ right now. It starts with two issues from the Fantastic Four (because of some plot tie-ins). FWIW, Reed and Sue are not depicted as they are in the panels Incredible Hans posted. Now, aside from one panel where they are holding hands, they are not particularly tender toward one another (though to be fair, fighting Doom kind of puts a damper on things.) But it's certainly not the mental abuse situation of these earlier panels.

So yes, they can and have improved treatment of characters. And I agree, thank goodness for that!
