10 Grossest Comic Book Relationships You Won't Believe Exist
10. Doctor Octopus And Aunt May
Arguably the weirdest thing about Doctor Octopus
and Aunt May briefly existing as a couple is that, by all means, it actually
wasn't that awful.
Sure, he was using her to get her recent
inheritance, and sure, he doesn't even try to hide the steel tentacles, but he
does protect her from harm’s way, and you could argue that it looks like he
does appear to care a bit about Aunt May.
No, the gross part of their relationship appears
forty whole years later, in The Amazing Spiderman #699, where Spider-Man taps
into the Doctor’s memories to find the old lady coaxing him into premarital
sex. Worse yet, it appears when Parker tries looking for a nice memory in the
scientist’s brain, which does suggest he may still burn a candle for the
comic book cougar.
Although your nephew seeing essentially a
live-action sex tape of you is gross by any standards, the real tragedy of the
romance is that it didn't live on - because nothing would have been funnier
than seeing Peter Parker deal with the new addition to the family.
