Tony tells Maria that Natasha means nothing to him and Maria’s relieved. They’re developing feelings for each other, aren’t they?
“There is some feeling creeping in and Tony knows it’s dangerous territory.”

Maria warns Natasha off Tony but Natasha takes no notice and is soon back in bed with him. What happens next?
“When Tony finds out Maria warned Natasha off he wonders why. Could it be that she likes him herself? It gets him thinking.”

When Tony’s taken to hospital after helping rescue Peter and Simon from a fire, Maria visits him! So are they going to become lovers?
