Added DiffLines:

* OlderThanTheyThink: A Spider-Man villain thinking he has killed the hero and then donning his costume to prove he's a superior Spider-Man than the hero was done in ComicBook/KravensLastHunt, albeit in a far smaller run of issues and to much less controversy and divisive response.

* CathartisFactor: While this is somewhat cancelled by [[spoiler:the ensuing murder]], [=SpOck=] successfully outsmarting Massacre by freeing the hostages he relied on as his back-up, then promptly [[CurbStompBattle Curb-Stomping him]] is greatly satisfying, giving the killing spree we saw the man commit.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Narm}}: Doc Ock and the Green Goblin's friendship montage, which is broken up by an ideological argument that ends with Norman infecting Otto's ex-fiance with [=AIDS=].

** The broken base for the comic and [=SpOck=] are taken to extremes on [[ImageBoards certain websites]] where saying anything good or bad about the comic can lead to flame war.

** Some consider Otto's death and passing of the torch back to Peter actually redeemed the character, as he [[HeelRealization realized just how bad he's been at superheroics and how Peter is much better at this than he is]]. Of course, there was also a AndThereWasMuchRejoicing from certain parts of the audience, but given the BaseBreaker status of the character, it was to be expected.

* BaseBreaker: [[FanNickname SpOck]] became one shortly after he was created. Some enjoy watching him attempt to be a super hero using MadScientist like methods while others just want Peter back. This only intensified after he became more of a {{Jerkass}} KnightTemplar.

* LoveItOrHateIt: People either like the new direction and find [=SpOck=] amusing, or absolutely detest it and all that it represents. There isn't much of a grey space, due to all of the BrokenBase and the fact that the main character is a BaseBreaker.

** Remember how Mary Jane and Otto-Peter went separate ways so that Otto wouldn't be [[QuestionableConsent considered a rapist]] for impersonating Peter Parker? This was thrown out of the window in Issue 22 when he had sex with Anna Marie Marconi - which would officially make him a rapist, [[http://douglasernstblog.com/2013/12/04/dan-slotts-superior-spider-man-body-snatching-rapist-confirmed-in-issue-22/ also according to Ernst]].

** As mentioned above, while the first issue of the comic was generally well-recieved, it was also criticized by some for immediately setting up Ghost-Peter, the plot thread that would eventually get to undoing Peter's [[DeathIsCheap Comic Book Death]].

Added DiffLines:

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Otto as the "Superior Spider-Man" has gotten the strange treatment of getting both DracoInLeatherPants ''and'' RonTheDeathEater treatments from the readership. Was he in-fact a superior Spider-Man because he did a better job managing his personal and heroic life, even if it resulted in him [[KickTheDog Kicking the Dog?]] Is this a tragic tale of a villain [[HeelFaceDoorSlam unable to overcome his nature?]] Is Otto just an asshole who ultimately got hit with LaserGuidedKarma?


Added DiffLines:

* DracoInLeatherPants: To this day, despite how contentious the arc was, there are fans who legitimately argue that Otto was a better Spider-Man than Peter. His more immoral actions gets written off as the Ends justifying the means.

** Black Cat being turned into a full-blown villain out for revenge against Spider-Man for what Otto did to her didn't gained much positive feedback.

** There are those who feel that Otto became Dan Slott's Superboy Prime.

** There are those who feel that Otto became Dan Slott's Superboy Prime. After Issue 25, where Otto with the Venom Symbiote is being shown to effortlessly manhandle the Avengers (including ''[[PhysicalGod Thor]]''), this is cemented even further.
