Tony: Natasha Romanoff— the Black Widow. I should have known.
Natasha: I hope you’ll pardon my cloak and dagger games, Tony. I couldn’t resist the thought of seeing you unure of yourself. Just for once. Caviar? Sparkling water?

It seems like this bikini grows an extra strap inbetween the first and second panel. Very avant-garde.
