The corpse of Doc Ock also has Peter's mind in it, so this is going to become confusing, like if the original Peter was in Doc Ock's body the entire time, then what about the Peter we were following? Is he just a clone created by Ock's perceptions of Peter? that would explain the plagiarism but it would piss off fans. I mean there was a Peter mind in the Doc Ock Clone that Otto killed soooo.....
he didn't switch the minds he copied pasted. he didnt need to necessarily but I guess he wanted to see peter die in his body even if it was only a copy.
Right, that actually makes sense. He just copy-pasted, which is why Spider-Ock had Peterís memories and Peter-in-Ottoís-body had Ottoís memories, like geriatric canoodling with Aunt May. *shudder*

Guess my joke didn't fly, but I do need to point out that there are currently three Normans in 616. Will they all coincide? Will they all be united by Kindred aka Norman The Fourth (maybe?)?
Really? Weíve got regular 616 Norman, his grandson Normie, and... who else? Ultimate Norman?
616 Norman, the Osborn Spider-Man (over in Superior) and Ultimate Goblin in Miles Morales.
We went from having no Normans when he was dead to three of them.
Spider-Man: ďI have three Normans and no money! Why canít I have no Normans and three money?Ē
Superior also brought back Spiders-Man, who is as hilariously terrifying as ever.
Bring also the one from Earth 65, and we'll have the "Normanverse"
This is awesome!
Everything is completely stop motion, and LEGO!
So, does anyone have any thoughts on the Nick Spencer helmed 2099 event storyline coming in December?
Apparently, it will be tied in with ASM #33-34, as well a one-shot, also written by Spencer.

Definitely looking forward for it. Spencer writing his favorite Spider-Man is something to be excited for.
Doom and Spidey are teaming up? Sounds cool.
Preview of Spider-Man Velocity #2
I actually really liked the first issue of this book, so Iím excited to see where it goes.

Hmm. I might have to check that out. Do they have to call it the ďGamerverseĒ, though?
The preview for Superior #11 is pretty cool too, I might get the trade if they ever print one, or if not, catch up digitally.
Yeah, ďGamer-VerseĒ is definitely kind of cringeworthy, in a very Hello Fellow Kids type way. (Although, Iím not sure what I would call it instead honestly.) Iím glad they are finally getting into original stories with this universe, since the first miniseries was just an abridged retelling of the game, and didnít really add a lot.
Iíve been loving Superior as well. It has a nice balance of humor, character development, and pathos, and is a ton of fun. Iím really sad itís ending at #12.
Itís crazy how nearly all the Spider related books have been killing it right now.

Andddddd Doc Ock is bad in the new issue. -_-
I see a lot of mixed emotions over this given how divisive the character's existence was.
Just like in the original Superior Spider-Man storyline, Otto concedes that he can never beat Norman the way he is now, only this time he decides to summon and make a deal with Mephisto to restore him to his original Otto Octavius self. So he's back to being the OG Doc Ock now.
Mephisto is clearly a Steve Ditko mark.
Well, now we know Mephisto has it out for Spiders.

I'm surprised Marvel kept this development as quiet as they did.
Also, in ASM#30
Is this the first time Peter has willingly unmasked in front of young Normie? I mean, he's probably known for a long time anyway, but it's nice to see Peter be confidant enough to try and reassure him this way.

Re: Superior Spider-Man:
We don't know if Otto actually took the deal or if this is a trick. Mephisto offers to make him the old Doc Ock again — without any disease, physical or mental, and with all the memories he's made of being the Superior Spider-Man, but without any memories of Peter Parker's life, but Anna Maria begs him not to do it. I have a feeling that the Doc Ock that showed up at the end of the issue is actually a trick of some sort and Otto turned down Mephisto's offer.
I'm not a fan of Superior, so I pray you're wrong

Why would Otto think he has a better chance of winning as a chubby middle-aged scientist with metal tentacles than as a genetically perfect clone of Spider-Man, also with the same metal tentacles? Thatís like Thor deciding to turn back into Don Blake.
I was fine with Superior Spidey as a concept since the outset. I think thatís a cool idea. There were problems with Slottís writing, but overall it wasnít bad. I was satisfied with the end of Ottoís story, where his great moment of heroism is to finally be humble enough to not try to be the star and to give Peter his life back. In that one moment, he finally does the right thing, the noble thing, for the right reason: to save Anna MarŪa. I was even happy to see Spider-Ock show up in Spider-Verse, sort of as a fun encore performance. I just wish he hadnít kept... coming... back...
