DOC OCK-TOBER STARTS HERE IN THIS SPIDER-GEDDON TIE-IN! Doc Ock has set up shop as San Francisco’s protector, but you won’t believe his methods. Some of Otto Octavius’s new superhero strategies may make Spider-Man regret letting him free, but the good doctor swears that he’s the SUPERIOR OCTOPUS! Chistos Gage (AMAZING SPIDER-MAN) and Mike Hawthorne (Deadpool) will change the way you look at superhero comics.


Former Superior Spider-Man co-writer Christos Gage returns this fall for a Superior Octopus one-shot with artist Mike Hawthorne. Just announced at Marvel’s Spider-Man panel here at Comic-Con International: San Diego, Superior Octopus promises to have, according to editor Nick Lowe, something shocking every five pages.

“If you read Superior Spider-Man, you know that when Doc Ock was in Peter Parker’s body, he used supervillain methods to be a superhero — you’re going to see more of that,” Lowe said. “Every five pages you’re going to see something that will shock you — it will either appall you or make you cheer.”
