* Kind of inversion in ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManTheAnimatedSeries'': Harry Osborne interrupts the very happy wedding of Peter and MJ, and tries to force MJ to marry him.

This ends up neutralizing him as a threat, because it makes him harder to manipulate by his evil father (who's currently trapped in another dimension, along with the ''real'' MJ, [[ItMakesSenseInContext but that's a whole other story]]).
