cyberghostface: (Spidey & MJ)
[personal profile] cyberghostface posting in [community profile] scans_daily

Dying in Dr. Octopus' body, Spidey confronts Ock (in his body) one last time. Peter is unable to transfer his consciousness back, but as his life flashes before his eyes Ock receives them as well via their mental link, with himself in place of Peter in them.

Ock (still in Spidey's body) tells Spidey he doesn't want this, and asks how he can do what Spidey does. Spidey (in Ock's body) tells him that he has to, because with great power...

But "Ock" is dead.

While this will probably last as long as Captain America's death did, I actually like the idea of a (reformed?) Ock as Spider-Man. I think there's a lot of potential with this idea and I'm definitely on board for Superior Spider-Man.

So I'm surprised to say this, but kudos to Slott. I'm looking forward to see where Ock!Spidey goes from here.

EDIT: There's an interesting write-up here.

I think this is sort of interesting actually. Of course, people will notice eventually and it'd be interesting if to see what happens then if they stick to it. I want him to be kicked out of the Avengers and hunted down for a while, that could be a great story. Spidey would be a loner outcast again, but this time because he's actually a villain. Things will get back to normal eventually.

But a lot of icky stuff can happen with MJ in the mean time of course which is less good. And uh didn't Ock already have all of Pete's memories? So I fail to see why getting them again would have any real impact on him?
And I wanna know what the hell is up with the costume changes, is it just to claw at people? Before it was confirmed it was Otto I assumed they were how the new Spidey would wall-crawl (like Miguel O'Hara does) but I guess not.

Yeah, this is kind of why part of me doesn't think this is going to last long. It might have worked back in Spidey's early days when even other heroes didn't trust him, but with the current status quo there's no way they wouldn't catch on. And if the Avengers or whoever does find out then they pretty much have to do something because to not do anything would be grossly immoral. It's not even a Magneto-esque case where the dude has genuinely reformed and is just trying to make amends, Doc Ock murdered a dude and stole his life and is now walking around avoiding justice, even with the guilt download he's still a multiple murderer, so they can't let this slide, especially when the murdered man is someone whom they've all known and fought alongside.
I don't know about the MJ thing though, I mean, Slott has been kind of annoying with how he teases the fans about how MJ and Supe!Spidey'll be getting together, but I really hope he doesn't go through with that. It would be genuinely fucked up and I would genuinely hope that Slott catches a lot of shit for it. Because it is a rape-y concept. Just saying.

I guess you could say that Ock was utilizing Peter's memories by picking up the pertinent information, but Peter's mind-meld forced Ock to, for the first time, truly see the world and experiences through the eyes of Peter Parker.
