Examples of Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! in Ultimate Marvel

  • In Ultimate Fantastic Four, Reed Richards created the Cosmic Cube to defend Earth against Thanos... which is exactly what Thanos was manipulating him to do.
  • Ultimate FF: Ben Grimm though he had killed Dr. Doom. He had killed his mother-in-law, who was using the armor and was posing as Dr. Doom, instead.
  • Ultimate X-Men
    • Cyclops left the team and, with the Blackbird, joined the Brotherhood in the Savage Land. The US was tracking him, and did not understand why did he land near a rock formation in the middle of nowhere. Then they looked a bit closer and noticed that it was a complex hologram hiding Magneto's base.

    • When the mutants broke free, and unable to use Xavier against them because of the power loss, Wraith filled him with bullets. Cornelious pointed that, if he didn't do that, they could have used him as a hostage to help them escape.
    • Xavier had a chance to kill Magneto at the end of the first arc, and it would have been completely justified. But he didn't, and erased his memories instead to try to rehabilitate him. It does not work. The Brotherhood discovers this, restores Magneto to his usual self, and he restarts his campaign of terror.
  • Ultimate Spider-Man: Spider-Man's first attack to the enforcers. he did it completely unprepared and with no plan, but he also ruined the attempt of the feds to capture those criminals. With the mess he had done, and escaping from the crime scene, he gave them the perfect excuse to claim that they were the victims in there.
    • Special mention goes for Carol Danvers
      • Attacking and antagonising Spider-Man when Norman Osborn escapes his cell, rather than just asking for help.
      • Futzing with his webs-shooter so that Peter runs out of web fluid at a critical moment (and would have become street pizza if not for Shadowcat).
      • When Norman gets better from being killed, she... just locks him back up in the same cell he previously escaped from, allowing him to, surprise surprise, escape again. In the exact same way.
  • The Ultimates
    • Punisher tried to stop Captain America by shooting to his kneecaps, but Spider-Man saw it, thought he was aiming to kill, and took the bullet. He had a fight with the Sinister Six on top of that, but Punisher was partially responsible for the death of Peter Parker.
    • Nick Fury has all those little geniuses to organize his schedule, and nobody thinks in the detail of not sitting Bruce Banner next to the window that shows the port area that he destroyed in his first Hulk episode.
    • Herr Kleiser tried to blame Captain America with this one. If if had not stop that rocket back in WWII, earth would be harmized by now, and the Chitauri would not need to blow up the whole planet. Of course, being a Sadistic Choice between two horrible fates, Cap did not get distracted by it a single bit.
    • According to Banner's calculations, if Captain America woke up he would barely have enough strength to talk. He woke up as strong as ever.
  • All-New Ultimates
    • Kitty's power can disrupt electronic stuff. Using it against the bad guy's weapon, fine. But the head of a guy with brain implants? She turns him into a babbling helpless meatbag, as she would have realized if she thought about it before acting.
    • Spider-Man and Taskmaster fight at the top of the van. Spider-Man kicks the gun out of Taskmaster's hand, so there is a random firing... that hits the driver.

How well does it match the trope?
