I have the comic's so far I actually like the idea Peter Parker is manifested within the mind of Ottawa watching over the reform supervillain keeping him in check some what and seeing how his life was be for not to mention he learning how it is to be a superhero in the eye of a hero
My problem with the new series is that I don't think it's very interesting. I was quite happy when it looked like they were killing off Doc Ock, and I loved Big Time.
The concept's great, and I really enjoyed the start of Superior, but I think Slott's dragged it on longer than it needed. They can only have every character, bar one or two going, 'Boy, Peter/Spidey sure is acting strange today!' before it just gets silly.
That being said, the fact they've just introduced Spider-Man 2099 into the mix is fun. (and I quite like the new design)
From the scans I've seen posted here, the series is awesome.
If I any longer had a local comic shop in my area, I might have a regular pull order.
I don't understand your point of view: If Doctor Octopus has not been killed off, that means Peter Parker has. What exactly do you find uninteresting about that?
As a Spider-Man fan, frankly, this feels like wish fulfillment.
One, you get to see some real character development from Doc Ock.
I mean, he is EARNESTLY trying to be a hero and do the right thing in this guise.
Two is that you get to see Spider-Man overcome the most glaring historical weakness of his character: failing to realize that, like a soldier in war, sometimes a man must take the life of an aggressor who is beyond reason and compassion. There is no way, for instance, any conscionable man would have allowed Carnage to live after he REPEATEDLY escaped incarceration only to kill again, be incarcerated again, escape again, and kill anew.
Sentry put a stop to that in the most fan-pleasing moment of his career.
You can bet Otto would have had a similarly satisfactory solution.
