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.

We'll see.

My money is on any reveal happening late in Super Spider-man #1 or Superior #2. #2 would be smarter commercially because second issues always have a sales slump. They not only sell less than #1's but often sell less than #3's.

The flipside is, it probably means a very lengthy subplot that involves Peter in Hell... probably including an obligatory moment where he decides he belongs there and doesn't want to leave.

I think a story like this, done right, is all about approaching disturbing, dark, and icky story beats and then averting them climbing out of them.

That's great when a writer does that. It's just that online fandom seems to have PTSD from past disappointments and doesn't trust writers to do that.
