When this started it reminded me of a comic where cameleon takes over the persona of Peter Parker (setting things 'right' before he killed Peter) and ended up being a better Peter than the original making decisions and doing things Peter later had to wonder about when he finally stopped cameleon.
Was hoping this would be kinda like that. Ock being better at being Parker than Parker was (never mind being spiderman) and it kinda is kinda isn't.
Im hoping for the best here.
That's arguable but likely accurate as to why it wont happen.
It seems that one of the main selling points is that Ock is supposedly a "smarter" Spidey.
Well, more ruthless for sure, more experienced, and better with technology, but I don't think Peter has ever been less than a genius. I'll grant that he's smarter than Parker, but not to the point that it should make a huge difference.

Whether he's smarter is debatable. Pete did beat him the last time they decided to find out whose "mind is superior". Like you said, Ock is just more ruthless. He's superior in a way that hes not bound by Parker's morals.

It's close enough. You know what is so pathetic about it? That Parker treated his pregnant wife worse than Pym ever treated Janet, but didn't have the guts to defend himself against that gay student. Coward.
Doom cried most likely because he wanted/planned to do it himself and got beat to it.
