It just seemed weird that she said she loved him like a brother then it progressed so quickly, same with havok/wasp. It felt off.
Oh, I absolutely agree with you on Simon/Wanda. When a woman says she loves someone like a brother, she is not going to fall in love with him within the next week (if it has been even a week for those characters since UA #7, probably just a couple days). I am willing to concede she might have slept with him, under those circumstances, as a way of distracting Eimin and Uriel from the fact she was planning to trick them (for f-’s sake, they were on enemy ship when that happened! The lives of everyone they cared about at stake!). Or, and this is my personal headcanon, she only said she loves him last issue because she knew he wasn’t coming back any time soon after Rogue absorbed his energy, an act of kindness, you know? Because the other options are that: 1 - she was lonely, Simon is hot and was there willing to be of use; 2 - she lied when she said she saw him as a brother. It could be (1), but (2)? Why would she lie to him about that?
On Jan/Havok, I agree that it didn’t feel organic. The flirting those early issues went okay - not perfect, but acceptable, considering their personalities. The problem was the time jump to six years in the future. One minute they’re flirting, the next they have a daughter. If they were characters that had interacted more often in the past, who already had at least an established friendship, that would have worked for us readers, but six issues is definitely not enough to bring us to that point.

I know I’m not a comics blog but these panels are so important. Despite what your standing on Civil War is, power corrupts itself. There will always be someone who abuses the system… and there will always be those who don’t read the fine print.
