This page contains MASSIVE UNMARKED SPOILERS for The Amazing Spider-Man Issue #700, and the "Dying Wish" storyline as a whole. You Have Been Warned.Part of Marvel Comics' Marvel NOW initiative, Superior Spider-Man is the new main Spider-Man ongoing series released in January 2013. After the events of the 700th and final issue of Amazing Spider-Man, Peter Parker and Dr. Octopus have switched bodies and Peter dies in the body of Dr Otto Octavius, but not before forcing him to relive Peter's life and force a Heel-Face Turn. Now there is a new Spider-Man in town—smarter, stronger, and SUPERIOR.Though the title is set to keep going until April 2014, it's been revealed that Peter Parker will retake his body and resume things back in a new The Amazing Spider-Man title, just in time for The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
Tropes used in The Superior Spider-Man include:
Anti-Hero/Anti-Hero Substitute: The new Spider-Man is the formerly villainous Doc Ock's mind in Peter Parker's body, who's also not above killing villains, starting with Massacre. To the point that Frank Castle, the Punisher himself, approves. In addition, he's not so much on board with the "Great Power and Great Responsibility" mantra. Part of his reason for being a hero is to do it better than the original and leave behind a greater legacy.
Anti-Villain: Otto's motives are partially heroic (with great power comes great responsibility) and partially selfish (he wants to make sure everybody knows he's "superior" to Peter). He's also not above beating the tar out of anyone he faces, be they hero or villain. By the end of the series, it's established that he's a villain more than anything.
Attention Whore: Otto's goal is to leave behind a legacy, and the steps he's taking aren't half-assed.
Asshole Victim: The bullies that were picking on Anna Marconi for being a little person. Sure what Otto did was Disproportionate Retribution, but those guys were hardly innocents. Same goes for many of the bad guys that Otto has beaten up or killed.
In Issue #9, Doc Ock battles Spidey inside his mind and defeats him by delivering a stinging What the Hell, Hero? by pointing out that the villains he put away earlier came back doing even worse, ending in taking Peter to task to the fact that he nearly allowed a little girl to die just so Octavius couldn't find him in a Moment of Weakness. In the end, a defeated Peter can only watch in horror as Ock seemingly erases him.
Tiberius Stone got away with everything he had done in Issue #19, including ruining Horizon and killing Superior Spider-Man (temporarily).
Bait the Dog: Initial stories in the comic make it seem like Otto is willing to change to become a better person. However, later developments in the story indicate that he's a particularly unflinching (and occasionally hypocritical) Well-Intentioned Extremist that is willing to use methods Not So Different from his stint as a villain.
Big Brother Is Watching: Otto has set up numerous robotic spider drones to patrol the city, allowing him to watch over everything and determine which threats to deal with and which ones to ignore. Also to spy on people, like the CEO who hired Massacre.
Insecurity Camera: Not that it stops the Green Goblin from hacking them to include a "Goblin Protocol" so that anyone with a Goblin tattoo or mask is ignored by Otto's bots.
Break the Haughty: Otto does not take his own failures well. Especially with his loss of the Venom symbiote, which ends with him being interrogated by the Avengers and childishly quitting the team.
Broke Your Arm Punching Out Cthulhu: Otto successfully erases Ghost-Peter from his mind... but that has the unfortunate effect of erasing all the memories of Peter Parker, which was the main way he managed to pass as Peter in first place, making his job as a vigilante much harder than it was.
Once Otto sees Vulture — his old friend — using children to do his dirty work he flips out and realizes how bad a person the Vulture really is.
The Avengers started to see Peter as this, following his executing Massacre, an unrepentant serial killer - Wolverine makes the point that all of them have done something similar at one point or another. Once he brutally beats Jester & Screwball into a bloody mess, however, Wolverine agrees that the Avengers need to deal with him.
Kaine sees Peter as this as well.
Add MJ and Max Modell to that list too.
And now, we add Black Cat and J John Jameson into the mix.
And Flash Thompson as well. It's pretty safe to say that Otto has been on one hell of a bridge-burning spree.
Chekhov's Gun: Stunner's virtual reality equipment which is used by Otto to blackmail his colleague into revoking the plagiarism claims of his work.
The Chessmaster: The Green Goblin spends most of the series quietly amassing an army of the thugs and henchmen that Otto lets slip through the cracks, before finally declaring war in the final arc.
Covers Always Lie: With the cover to Issue #20, you would think that Black Cat would play a significant role in the story and have a small romance with Otto. Instead, he just punches her in the face after meeting her, webs her up, and leaves her confused, bitter, and really pissed off, for the cops.
The Kingpin has a Body Double whose only purpose is to sit around until he needs to fake his own death by killing the double and leaving the body to be found by the authorities. Furthermore, his double had his code genetically altered to match Kingpin's exactly, in order to convince everyone that the body really is him.
Otto is this in regards to fighting Spider-Man's enemies. When preparing to fight Carnage, he equips his Spiderlings with sonic emitters, and arms himself with a wrist-mounted flamethrower to kill Agent Venom.
Darker and Edgier: The new Spider-Man is a dangerous and self-serious Anti-Hero, a far cry from the fun and quippy original. Then Spider-Man executes Massacre and the Spider-Slayer, after he beats Boomerang, Screwball, and Jester to near death.
Demoted to Extra: Mary Jane, one of the most prominent characters in Spider-Man's entire mythos, is given a backseat in most of the action and is barely involved in any of the plots, to the point where she largely interacts with Peter via phone messages, and one of her biggest story arcs revolved around whether or not she listened to a message on her cell. Many other established supporting characters in Spider-Man's world have also been shuffled offstage.
Do Not Adjust Your Set: Otto hacks all the displays in New York to tell the citizens to be on the lookout for Phil Urich, the man behind the Hobgoblin costume. He even shows pictures of the two to make sure.
Also, Stunner trying to kill Spider-Man for killing her beloved Otto... do we really need to say it?
Superior Spider-Man Team-Up #7 has SpOck trying to talk Sandman out of going berserk, only for Sandman to reveal that he'd used to believe in Spider-Man... but that Doctor Octopus was right all along.
Earn Your Happy Ending: Implied to be the case with Peter Parker given that the Amazing series is returning. He apparently gets control of his body again after being killed by Otto Octavius and almost having his memory obliterated.
Evil Counterpart: The title character serves as this to Kaine, Peter's self-describedevil clone, especially as shown in their "Sibling Rivalry" Bat Family Crossover. Kaine is legitimately trying to help on his own, distinctly separate from the many heroes in New York, and does use lethal force on occasion for deliberately benevolent reasons, denying being a hero the whole way through even as he works as The Atoner. Otto instead uses lethal force as a simple means to an end instead of an unfortunate consequence, and aims to make a legacy instead of help out. Kaine even points out how much of a Broken Pedestal he is in the crossover.
Evil Gloating: Superior Spider-Man doesn't do the jokes and quips so much as the original. He tends to ramble about how brilliant he is, and how he's outthought whichever foe he's up against. It's still the trope, just being used by kinda-sorta-reformed-evil.
Evil Tastes Good: Averted. The symbiote Venom notes that Peter's taste is horrible compared to before because of Otto and quicky tries to go back to Flash.
Evil Versus Evil: As Otto slides more and more into his old habits, ways, and viewpoints, the comic quickly descends into this, making him only slightly better than the villains he fights.
Exact Words: Ock!Spider-Man asks J. Jonah Jameson to be extremely explicit when he tells the hero that he wants to make sure the Spider Slayer dies. He records it to blackmail Jameson into giving him the Raft as a superhero base.
Eye Scream: Otto ended up shattering a spotlight into Vulture's eyes, blinding him, and then mini-Spider-Slayer bots burrowed into them.
Though the latter was to restore the damage caused by the former.
Failure Hero: For all of Octavius' boasting that he's a superior Spidey than Peter ever was, his own arrogance has ultimately turned against him: the friendliness and goodwill Peter's built up over the years has run dry, heroes who have looked up to him now look at him in suspicion and confusion over his attitude and decisions, friends and family are turning their backs on him, but him ignoring his mistakes and how someone like Peter rebounded from incidents like them have come back and bit him in the ass.
As importantly, Octavius' attempt to "erase" Peter for good backfired because it (while seemingly successful) also cost him access to Peter's memories with which to impersonate Peter... and trying to get them back in #19 also brought Peter Back from the Brink.
"Freaky Friday" Flip: The entire story comes out of one between Doc Ock and Peter, where Peter died in Ock's body. Alistair Smythe, the Spider-Slayer, also tried, but Otto had prevented it the same way he did it when Peter tried in Amazing 700.
From Bad to Worse: It starts out as bad when Otto tries to get rid of Peter once and for all, and he stoops lower and lower from there. And things start going bad for him once the Avengers start trailing him and the Goblin King makes his move.
Gadgeteer Genius: Pretty much every issue shows how Ock uses technology to make crime-fighting easier. In particular, his Spider-Bots, which monitor the city for him, and allow him to catch crime he would normally be unaware of.
Genre Savvy: Otto during his second fight with Cardiac.
Otto: You don't get it, do you? This is the rematch, and Spider-Man always wins the rematch.
Ghost Memory: As a result of Peter's last attempt to get his body back. Of course, this gets erased. Also doubles as a Soul Fragment.
Heroic BSOD: In issue #28, Otto watches as the Goblin Army tears apart Spider-Island. All he can do in response is to say "I don't know" when his Spiderlings ask him what to do.
Heroic Sacrifice: Spider-Man 2099 attempts one, deciding that a future without Alchemax is more important than his own existence. Doesn't work, however, once he realizes this could have a negative impact on his loved ones or even lead to a worse future.
Hero with Bad Publicity: Actually inverted; despite being a total douchebag at times, Otto's actually won over most of the police (minus Carlie Cooper and J. Jonah Jameson after Issue #13), especially after he killed Massacre. This goes so far that just about all the cops are willing to lie about him killing Massacre to Captain Watanabe in order to avoid him getting in trouble.
Of course things change as the series goes on due to his later actions, culminating to the people watching the Venom-possessed Otto fighting Captain America and finally speaking their mind how "big brother" is finally getting annoying.
He's Back: Thanks to the Venom symbiote, Ghost Peter comes roaring back. This time, though, he's playing it safe, and keeping a low profile while he plots to fully resume control unless Ock decides to completely and utterly screw up.
In Issue #19 his deletion of Peter's memories ends up leaving him unable to stop the destruction of Horizon, and by trying to surpass Peter he ended up caught in the blast. It would have been a permanent death, if not for Max Modell. In addition, his desperate attempt to remember something in Peter's past has given Peter a foothold to start breaking free!
In Issue #25 We find out that Ock had erased the files over Spider-Man's diagnostics way back in issue #7... except for the security camera installed by Iron Man, who was Properly Paranoid thanks to Secret Invasion.
Issue #28, we find out that the police are looking for Carlie and Peter's the prime suspect in her disappearance since he was the last one to be really seen with her.
Holding Back the Phlebotinum: One of the reasons this storyline lasted as long as it did, beyond the complained usage of Idiot Ball, is the fact that the storyline happened during a time where a number of big-name heroes and characters who would have blown the lid off of this almost immediately are taken out of the picture through their own storylines, such as Avengers vs. X-Men, the then-current run of Fantastic Four and the Iron Man storyline "The Secret Origin of Tony Stark".
At the start of Issue #1, Otto swears to become a hero and leave his past behind. A couple of pages later, he gets quite angry at the "unmitigated gall" of a bunch of C-List villains using the name of "his" old group, the Sinister Six.
Otto constantly brags how he's a Superior Spider-Man to Peter. He's also the guy who called the X-Men arrogant for using superior in homo superior.
Throughout the Ends Of The Earth, Otto bemoans the fact that he's been effectively crippled by Spider-Man, even though this was because he'd been breaking the law and running into Spidey so many times instead of receiving a No-Holds-Barred Beatdown like he claimed. What does he do when he becomes Spider-Man? Deliver excessive beatings to all criminals.
One of his major arguments against Peter is that he's too selfish to be Spider-Man. Yes, this is coming from the egomaniac that's trying to Attention Whore his way to fame.
In Avenging Spider-Man he scoffs at Scott Lang's past in thievery as if he hasn't done anything as petty. In another issue, his monologue concerning the Hobgoblin is about how the villain's smugness and thoughts of being better then everyone else grates on him.
In Issue #11 he actually cuts himself off from doing this while going on a rant about how the Spider-Slayer couldn't be a changed man since he was a lifelong criminal and murderer... which he was up until he bodyjacked the original Spider-Man. It's for this reason, in the "Sibling Rivalry" arc, his criticism of Kaine falls short considering they've pretty much done some of the same things. He's just mad because he was killed by Kaine. He also blasts cloning when he's the one cloning the members of the original Sinister Six.
In the "Sibling Rivalry" crossover betweenSuperior Spider-Man Team-Up & Scarlet Spider, Otto complains about Kaine "stealing [his] life". Obviously, he's not really in any position to complain about people doing that.
Similarly, during the Infinity tie-in to Mighty Avengers, Otto freaks the hell out when he sees Ronin (known at the time as "Spider Hero") wearing a knock-off Spider-Man costume. He has the gall to get indignant at another hero "ripping him off" despite, y'know, having killed Peter and stolen his life.
Ignored Epiphany: In spite of his intelligence, Otto doesn't seem to learn from his mistakes.
It also seems this way concerning what memories Otto decided to save: Ghost Peter realizes that many of them are memories that defined who he is, but Otto obviously doesn't make any connections, as evident when he decides the memory of Gwen Stacy's death would just merit "further study".
I Hate Past Me: After being threatened by a pre-recorded tape of himself in one of his old bases, Otto quickly decides his past self was a joke, constantly self-sabotaged by pointless vanity.
I'll Never Tell You What I'm Telling You: Superior Spider-Man, in a fight with the Spider Slayer, "lets slip" that his Spider-bots are powered by the Raft's power grid. The whole thing was a ruse to trick the Spider Slayer into going for that.
Insistent Terminology: The Green Goblin is referred to here as the Goblin King, even though his identity as Norman Osborn is obvious.
Irony: What is the one thing that destroys everything Otto has worked for? "Stealing" his own work for his doctorate thesis, putting himself, his step-uncle and co-worker in the mercy of the bank. This gets resolved with a bit of technological trickery.
In Issue #27, Goblin Knight (recently the previous Hobgoblin) mentions that the storming of Spider-Island is just like his storming of Shadowland... except it's Otto's turn to see how it feels to have everything come crashing down.
It's Not You, It's My Enemies: Otto ends up breaking up with MJ after she got captured by some of Vulture's goons realizing that she'd never be safe. Even Peter is impressed that he had the guts to finally break it off.
Knight Templar: He thinks anything he does is superior to the rest of the Hero Community (especially to Peter), from blackmailing to outright murder, going by crippling, and that he can't ever be wrong because he is a genius.
Let's You and Him Fight/Friend or Foe: Otto's attitude puts him into conflict with a lot of the superheroes Peter was good friends with or who admired him, including the Avengers, Spider-Man 2099, and Agent Venom.
Love Triangle: A really confusing one Mary Jane still loves Peter and dated "Peter". Ghost Peter still loves Mary Jane, and is pretty pissed about Otto dating her in his place. Otto has feelings for MJ due to having Peter's memories and reliving parts of his life, but broke up with her since he didn't want her to get hurt. Seeing as Ghost Peter gets wiped and Otto is avoiding her, it's probably resolved tragically.
The Mafia: Green Goblin is setting one up to deal with Superior Spider-Man. As of Issue #14 he controls over 52% of all crime.
Morality Chain: Ghost Peter is really trying to be this, forcing Otto to pull a Heel-Face Turn before he died, and preventing him from killing Boomerang. Unfortunately he isn't very successful at keeping Otto from killing Massacre and eventually gets erased himself.
Mood Whiplash: Happens from time to time, but Issue #6 really sums it up. "Oh hey, Jester and Screwball are playing pranks on JJJ! That's pretty funny! Oh, and they're doing it to Spock too! That's hilar—oh wait, now he's beating them to death."
Issue #10 has it shifting between Otto on a date with Anna Marconi and MJ caught in a fire, waiting for him to save her.
Mooks: Otto turns the Raft into a base and gathers an army of Mooks at the end of Issue #13. They help him take down the Shadowland.
My God, What Have I Done?: Otto's reaction after seeing a young girl whose brain damage worsened after his global warming scheme.
Gets another one after his "Superior Six" plot spectacularly collapses.
Mythology Gag: In the weirdest of places. As Ghost Peter is getting mind wiped, his attempt to remember his name comes out as "Peter... Palmer?", a name Stan Lee's narration mistakenly called him a few times during the superhero's early days.
Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: So, Spidey and his army has liberated the Shadowland from the hands of Wilson Fisk and the Hand and forced Fisk to flee. That's good and all. Too bad the Green Goblin has decided he was going to take over, swooping up the remaining members of the Hand from that area and rebranding himself the Goblin Kingpin of Crime.
Nice job knocking out Spider-Man 2099, the only guy who could save Horizon after you deleted Peter's memories.
Nice job using your old tech as Peter Parker, Ock. Now you got everyone thinking he's a fraud, a thief and worse!
As a whole, the "Goblin Nation" arc seems to be reaching this conclusion - Otto's actions end up making things much worse in the long run instead of better.
No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Otto's using Peter's strength to the fullest when he fights. While Jester and Screwball got beat badly, he blinded Vulture, knocked Scorpion's jaw off, and nearly killed Boomerang.
Peter:(when Ock throws down the gauntlet at the Avengers) Oh, what I wouldn't give for some ghost-popcorn right now.
Pet the Dog: Though Otto performs morally questionable actions, he does have his moments where he acts as a hero should.
Otto performs successful brain surgery with Cardiac on a girl who was brain-damaged by one of previous attempts to take over the world, having felt guilty and trying to atone for it. This was after he tried to take the helmet off of her for his own use while she was alive before Cardiac stopped him and explained the situation. In return, the girl gave Otto her personal doll and got a Spider-Man doll for herself. And then it's revealed he did this so he could get rid of Peter.
Poorly Disguised Pilot: Possibly - Issue #19 strands Spider-Man 2099 in the present and it's said that it's setting up the stage for a brand new Spidey 2099 comic.
Rage Quit: When the Avengers attempt to get information out of SpOck, with the reasoning that they think that they can do so just because he's an Avenger, he throws himself out the window and screams "I QUIT!"
Red and Black and Evil All Over: Superior Spider-Man's costumes are red and black rather than red and blue, and Otto becomes increasingly antagonistic as the series goes on.
Ret Canon: Arune Singh confirmed at Comic-Con that the new Spider-Man outfit is the same one Alex Ross designed for the first Spider-Man movie. The design ultimately went unused in the film, but was leaked online and even appeared in some of the video games.
Ret Gone: Otto tried to do this with Peter's memory. It didn't work.
Robot Buddy: The Living Brain, a Killer Robot battled twice by Spider-Man early in his career, reappears as a member of the wannabe Sinister Six. After defeating it, Otto reprograms it to be his assistant.
Sexy Discretion Shot: Otto and Anna Marconi getting it on in her lab is being shown as two large jellyfish being close to each other.
Spirit Advisor: Subverted - Peter is technically still alive, but Otto has no idea that Peter's along for the ride and can't hear him when Peter talks to him; and the only influence Peter is able to exert over his body is stopping Otto from crossing lines he would never cross, until Massacre is killed. Then Peter gets a Disney Death, too.
Mary Jane claiming that everything's "Crazy Town Banana Pants" and that it's something Peter used to say all of the time when questioned on it.note Peter never actually said that before, at least not that we know of, just in case you're wondering.
Otto tells the Living Brain, which he modded to be his assistant, to fetch him some tea. Earl Grey. Hot.
Super Team: Otto tried to make one of these out of the Sinister Six, called the Superior Six in the Team-Up series.It failed horribly.
Superior Successor: Otto certainly likes to think he is. Issue #19 proved him wrong, and it doesn't seem that Otto took the lesson well.
Take That: To the Bat-Signal. JJJ installs a Spider-Signal; Otto trashes it as soon as it's turned on, pointing out that it just tells every enemy where they can find Spider-Man.
Taking Up The Mantle: Doctor Octopus becomes the new Spider-Man after he's forced to experience Peter Parker's memories — good and bad — learning how and why Peter is Spider-Man.
"The Reason You Suck" Speech: Given by Otto to the ghostly version of Peter inhabiting his mind after he tries doing the same thing to him, essentially telling him that he doesn't deserve to be Spider-Man because of how ineffective and childish he is. He points out how Peter being so lax on villains like Massacre and The Vulture because of his moral code is foolish considering all the harm it ends up doing, and that Peter's earlier interference almost cost a little girl her life, all because Peter was afraid Otto would eventually find him.
Trailers Always Spoil: Covers and information about the upcoming Original Sin storyline seem to indicate that both Peter and Doc Ock will be sharing the same body after this, and that Ock will try to influence Peter into villainy.
Villain Protagonist/Nominal Hero: If you didn't already know this from the protagonist being a super villain who murdered the iconic hero, stole his life, and dated his girlfriend in his place, then SpOck is rapidly approaching this status as his morals decline further and further, being an Anti-Villain at best. He begins as an aversion of Peter's Hero with Bad Publicity status after his early acts of more extreme violence, but turns toward a Villain with Good Publicity by the end of the "No Escape" arc.
Villains Out Shopping: The first thing Massacre does after escaping from prison? He goes to a fast food restaurant.
Villainous Breakdown: Well, since Otto IS a villain, his rant in #26 is easily this when he throws himself out of Avengers Tower, he starts ranting that they were nothing without him and that he doesn't need anyone.
He did it again in Mighty Avengers #5 after being humiliated by She-Hulk.
Walking Spoiler: The identity of the new Spidey (Otto Octavius) is one for the end of Amazing Spider-Man.
We Can Rule Together: The Green Goblin makes this offer to Otto, seeing how they'd never been enemies or even rivals before Otto swapped minds with Peter. Otto refuses, so the Goblin decides to tear down everything Otto has built up.
Issue #20: More of Parker's life is smashed up as Octavius beats up and arrests the Black Cat, who vows that she'll never forget what he had just done. While trying to obtain a doctorate by passing off technology he had invented as Otto as Peter's, he is exposed as a fraud by an old friend of his from when he was Octavius, and the woman whom Octavius allowed to become the Stunner (last seen in a coma after she helped bring him back to life the first time) returns and takes up her old identity vowing to crush Spider-Man
Issue #21: All the problems brought up in the previous issue are solved, but the Green Goblin has Carlie's evidence on Otto being Spider-Man after one of his goons kidnap her. Oh, and Peter Parker's grave is empty.
Superior Carnage #5: Carnage knows Spider-Man is Doc Ock and Cletus Kasady is no longer lobotomized.
The entire "Goblin Nation" arc, which basically screws Otto over in every way possible.
Ghost-Peter: I am going to find a way back! Otto: No, Peter. You won't.
In Issue #19. This is less of one, since it was implied to be in progress, but the Wham comes from how it is solidified.
Liz Allan:Mr. Banks. Mr Stone. Let me be the first to welcome you to this bold endeavor. The foundation of this all-new mega corp, Allan Chemical, merged with my son's holdings in Oscorp... and the intellectual properties Tiberius helped us acquire from Horizon Labs. Gentlemen, I give you Alchemax. Long may she stand.
Wham Shot: Peter digging his way out of the rubble in issue #19.
What Measure Is a Non-Human?: Brought up in the Sibling Rivalry story. Otto sees clones as abominations, while Peter wasn't exactly thrilled but supported his surviving clones.
What the Hell, Hero?: SpOck is able to trap Agent Venom by giving him artificial limbs but separating the symbiote from Flash Thompson. Once Flash realizes what he's done, he reads him the riot act right before the symbiote breaks free, fuses with SpOck and turns him into the Superior Venom.
The next issue, Mary Jane FINALLY confronts Peter and demands to know what's going on. When she finds out about the symbiote? She sics the Avengers on him.
In Mighty Avengers #5, Jessica Jones is so livid that he brought his little army in in front of her kid, that she punches him hard enough to shatter his mask lenses.
In Issue #28, one of the workers in Parker Industries snaps at him when she finds out he's hiding Spidey Tech in the building, wondering why he's trying to draw out all of this attention to his building.
Wild Card: Mary Jane Watson in Issue #28 calls herself this.
Otto:Write your stories, fools. Mark this day well. For today, I cast off the last of the chains Peter Parker saddled me with...and begin to craft my own legacy. I am no more bound by Parker's life than I am about my own former existence. I shall create something entirely new. Something wonderful. This shall be my legacy. ABrand New Day... No, A Brand New Age. The Age of the Superior Spider-Man.The Greatest Hero of them All. And nothing will stand in my way.
Would Hit a Girl: No matter if it's a criminal Femme Fatale like Black Cat - who, making it even worse, was one of Peter's girlfriends - Otto would rather just punch her in the face and leave her to the cops.
You and What Army?: In Superior Spider-Man Team Up #9, Otto asks this of a mole in his Spiderlings. The answer?
Mole:Your own! HAHAHAHAHA! (cue two page spread of him, Daredevil, and The Punisher surrounded by Otto's men wearing stolen supervillain gear)
