Yes Men basically has the same triangle as the Avengers in terms of mind control. Loki/Barton/Romanov and Lorelei/Ward/May.
Loki used Barton’s knowledge of Romanov to completely tear her apart during her “interrogation” (and yes, despite what she appears to Loki, she was still extremely shaken by it), and yet she only knocked him around to bring him back to himself. Afterwards, they both comforted each other. They didn’t blame each other for what they’ve done, especially not Natasha towards Clint.
Same sort of mind control happened in Yes Men, where Lorelei deliberately tried to hurt May with Ward’s knowledge. And the thing is, it should not have. The knowledge Lorelei specifically chose should not have hurt May if she was truly removed from the affair with Ward as she claims (because why should she care if he desired another when they were only having sex for physical release without any personal feelings?). But she totally took it personally and slugged him on in the jaw even AFTER he’s returned to himself. She has no sympathy for him and blames him completely.
So why the difference? One simple fact: Ward and May aren’t friends, and have never aspired to be such.
