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 don't see how they expect us to think Ock's decision is based on anything other than than egoism. The dude just murdered a man so he can wear his body and he seems pretty okay with it. He's certainly not going to confess to the Avengers or anything. The only thing that being inserted into Peter's memories seemed to achieve was Ock deciding that he could be a superior hero compared to Peter. This may be preferable to Ock using Peter's body for evil, but it's not a decision based on any sort of morality. If we are supposed to think differently, Slott should have written it differently.
