Am I nuts or has the webcomic been teasing Tatsumaki x King

I think it's the joke that she respects King a lot despite being so quick to judge everyone negatively.

I don't even think that's a joke, I think that's just how the manga works. Aside from Puri-Puri Prisoner, I don't think there's any romance in it. You've got respect, like everyone minus Saitama with King and Blast but with Tatsumaki not really caring either. And you've got admiration like with the Blizzard Group to Fubuki and Genos to Saitama. And then there's just respect in general for when heroes encounter an S-Class or Mumen Rider towards Saitama.

Personally, I think the closest thing to love in this series is Metal Bat with his sister. He's so drat supportive and proud of her. What a great big brother. And character.

I agree, I don't think the joke is that Tornado is secretly in love with King, just that she chose King (of all people) to be worthy of her respect.

King seems to be one of the few heroes Tatsumaki legitimately respects, but I wouldn't say that's a tease so much as King being so strong that not even Tatsumaki, who doesn't respect loving anyone, can write him off.

To be fair, he keeps being in the wrong place at the right time, taking credit for Saitama's kills. Finding a guy in the ruins of 3 city blocks with Devastator-sized monster chunks splattered everywhere constantly seems like a reason to respect him.

Tank Top Master showed that throwing large things is always an option.

Plus, considering Bang's skills, I wouldn't be surprised if he could do that 'punch a candle flame out' thing but more powerfully.

I won this avatar on a technicality this thick.

I think part of the reason for the Tatsumaki x King ship is that King is an otaku and some people might think he's into young girls (or young looking in Tatsumaki's case) because of that.

No, but see, she doesn't hiss like a cobra at him, unlike everyone else. Which means that obviously she wants to bone King just like the Murata thread with Fubuki.

There are several individuals Tatsumaki treats with a vague sort of respect. Usually among the top of S class, King's not exactly the only person. I kind of remember her having some respect for Bang and listening to him and such.

Since it would be spoiler in the Murata version thread. I can't believe it was needed to be plainly stated that the King of the Monsters used to be human for me to realize the similarities with Garou's monster form.

You gotta wonder if the reason why the King of Monsters was added in the Murata version was to be a boss fight for Garou to get a more cemented step for his monster power-up. Like 'oh I beat the monster king, now I absorbed his powers', something like that.

We've seen nuttier things in this manga!

I kind of got the impression that the King of Monsters was just a puppet that Psykos was controlling and using to cement her rule. Similarly to how she is already using the alternate form to pretend to be more of a monster. That might be super redundant tho.
