The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Somehow I can't see this happening

I think we can consider this wholly unexpected:

"The lagoon's waters are warmed by a state-of-the-art process I developed in tandem with Wakanda's greatest scientists called ... thermal dynamics! Care to join me for ... a dip?"

"But I ... I don't have a bathing suit!"

The engineer in question is none other than T'Challa, the Black Panther; the reluctant (at that point) swimming companion is Susan Richards, née Storm, one-quarter of the Fantastic Four.

Yes, she went in; yes, she was married to Reed Richards at the time; no, she didn't put her powers to use.

(It's a flashback in Marvel Knights 4 #21. Really.)
