The 12 Most Absurd Plots From Comic Book Supervillains
Doctor Octopus Tries To Become Spider-Man’s Uncle
Most supervillains would probably never think to marry an old lady just to steal her inheritance, but, then again, most supervillains probably wouldn’t rock a bowl cut either. In one of the most laughable schemes to ever occur within the pages of Spider-Man, the mechanical armed mad scientist discovers that Peter Parker’s elderly Aunt May has inherited a fully functional, abandoned nuclear facility. Exactly why the facility is both fully functional and abandoned is a mystery that ultimately goes unanswered but all the reader needs to know is that Doc Ock wants it and he’s not willing to just steal it like any normal, self-respecting villain would.
When Spider-Man learns about his enemy’s dishonest intentions to wed his aunt, he rushes out to try and halt the ceremony, but before he can crash the wedding, someone else beats him to it. Having also learned about Aunt May’s inheritance, third-rate Spider-Man villain Hammerhead tries to cut in on the action and kidnap her. Luckily Spider-Man beats him to it and carries his unconscious aunt off to safety while Hammerhead and Doc Ocks get left behind as the nuclear plant goes into meltdown. Perhaps someone should have explained to them that just because you marry someone doesn’t automatically entitle you to all their stuff.
