14. THAT SEX TAPE
Iron Man and Black Widow almost got married during “The Ultimates 2,” but unfortunately, it turned out Natasha Romanoff was a spy and secretly betrayed the team. She even tried to kidnap Tony, but he used nanobots to give her brain damage and then escape. Black Widow was later killed by Hawkeye, and the series ended with Tony depressed about losing her, only until he laid eyes on his next sexual conquest. It seemed like the saga of Tony Stark and Natasha Romanoff was over.
The opening scene of “The Ultimates 3” (2008) by Jeph Loeb and Joe Madureira, however, revealed that someone had leaked a sex tape of Iron Man and Black Widow. The weirdest part of this scene is that the Ultimates are sitting around together and watching it on a giant television screen. It’s later revealed that Ultron leaked the tape in an attempt to distract the heroes so he could kidnap the Scarlet Witch. Ultron never reveals how he knew that the team’s reaction to the sex tape would be to creepily watch it together while everyone yells at Tony.
13. THE BLOB EATS THE WASP
After the death of the Scarlet Witch, Magneto went crazy and decided to combine his powers with Mjolnir, causing giant tidal waves and volcanic eruptions across the globe. He also instantly froze Latveria, as shown in “Ultimatum” (2008) by Jeph Loeb and David Finch. New York City was one of the places struck by a gigantic tidal wave, and many of the superheroes were killed, including Beast, Nightcrawler, Daredevil and many others. Hank Pym and Hawkeye survived the wave, and immediately began searching for their teammate, Wasp.
What they found was a truly horrifying, and disgusting scene. They come across the Blob eating Janet Van Dyne’s body, and declaring that it tastes like chicken. Hank Pym freaks out, and in his Giant Man form, picks up the Blob and bites his head off, spitting it back out onto the street. Pym then has Janet’s body taken back to his lab for “the Jocasta Project.” Unfortunately, Pym was killed by an army of suicide-bombing Multiple Men the next issue, putting an end to the Hank Pym and Janet Van Dyne story.
