First up is Ultimate Comics Spider-Man, where we meet the new Ultimate Scorpion. I say "new" because we already met one before and he was a genetically modified clone of Peter Parker.



...whaaaa?

I mean, I'm all for more realistic redesigns, but really? Why not just make him a new character entirely?

Finally, over in Amazing Spider-Man #682, we're getting "The Next Big Spider-Man Event", titled "The Ends of the Earth" featuring none other than the dying Dr. Octopus.



The solicitation reads "The Doc Ock Story You’ve Waited 50 Years For! Doctor Otto Octavius Holds The Entire Earth Hostage With His Dying Breath. What Price Will Spider-Man Have To Pay To Buy The Whole World One More Day?" (emphasis mine)

This whole "Dr. Octopus is dying" storyline has been going on for far too long and has gone nowhere, so I'm happy to see it reach its conclusion. Because really, we all know that Marvel wouldn't be stupid enough to kill of Dr. Octopus, and if they do, it's only a matter of time before he comes back. At this point blowing off your head with a shotgun or getting torn in half in space isn't enough to kill you.

One good thing is hopefully this will be the end of the ridiculous 'Gimp Ock' look that he's been touting for the last couple of years.

Maybe Bendis just forgot his hero character has super-strength like he's done repeatedly since forever.
