This reality diverged at the moment in which Aunt May became the Golden Oldie.

Aunt May as the Golden Oldie was obviously referencing Iron Man.

The truly horrifying thing is that this pretty happened in-continuity - Aunt May wore Iron Man armor into battle in Marvel Knights Spider-Man#20. When What If jokes are taken too far! - Prime Eternal
