So Spider-Man and Silver Sable attempt to stop Doctor Octopus from destroying the world. Earlier on Doctor Octopus revealed that he had no plan on saving it; he decided that if he was going to die, he wanted everyone else to as well.

Honestly, maybe I'm romanticizing Octavius here, but I would have figured it to be much more in character for him to actually save the world so he can go "See how brilliant I am that I could do what you could not?" Full-blown genocide isn't his style. Heck, even during JMS' run he helped Spider-Man save a group of civilians from being crushed to death. But whatever.

So anyway, Rhino is there stop them. Spider-Man tells them that Doc Ock plans on destroying the world but Rhino knows and doesn't care. After his fiance died he has nothing left to live for.

Spider-Man tracks down Doctor Octopus, and its revealed that Ock planned for .008% of the population to survive and rebuild, and that he will live on in infamy as someone worse than Hitler or Stalin.

Y'know, I'm a bit surprised that Ock is STILL in this 'dying' state by this end with no change to his status quo. I mean we all know that sooner or later he'll be back to normal so how much longer are we going to drag this on? Either kill him already or cure him. I figured with this being touted as "The last Doc Ock story" there'd be some resolution to his condition in one form or another...but nope, he's still alive and he's still on death's door. And next issue features the convenient return of the Lizard so it's not like there's going to be an 'epilogue'.

I'd say something here about Slott killing off characters but I think we all know that both Rhino and Silver Sable are alive and well.

So, Ock's motives are now "See what Ra's al Ghul wants to do. Do that. Repeat as needed."

Someone on this board once said that Ra's never really gets how all the survivors of his "purified Earth" will be too crazy with survivor's guilt to properly rebuilt society. That same problem exists in Ock's plan.

...and since Doctor Octopus was awesome throughout this entire arc, I have no problem with that.
