That means J. Jonah Jameson is President and Doctor Octopus heads the M&M sessions for a hospital in Portland.

Subby, when does troll-bait count as a headline?

Aside from the politics tab, I mean.

Also, where does this put the Flash, Superman, Magneto, Juggernaut, Wonder Woman, Robin, Red Hood, Harley Quinn, etc., on the Commie Scale?

As noted, it's Spider-Man, not "Spiderman".

When you spell it "Spiderman" it seems like a Jewish surname. Like his name is Abe Spiderman or something.

Well, Doc Ock's mind is now controlling/IS Peter Parker now, so...sure, why not?  No more stupid than any other Spider-Man story of the last ten years.

Actually, Pete's still in there. He's just buried deep in the subconscious. It's actually a pretty interesting story with Pete watching stuff happen and doing his best to influence Otto's decisions.

It's an ok plot line, but not very sustainable.  I mean, it's got, what, maybe six month's mileage before it gets really old watching Pete Obi-Wan Otto?  Plus you know they have to get it back to normal before Amazing Spider-Man 2 hits the theaters.

I'm totally all for big changes to characters when you know they can actually stick, but these Spider-Man stunts have gotten really old.  It was especially bad when Marvel basically hinted that Otto might dance the horizontal mamba with MJ, which is tantamount to rape, and then when they got called on it being in really bad taste, tried to claim the fault was on the fans for assuming they'd go there.  Yeah, cuz you were massively hinting you would!

Things like All New X-Men are way more interesting to me because that's the kind of stuff, bringing the original five X-Men from the past into the present, that doesn't feel like it's going to be forgotten about in a year and has already started to cause big impacts.  When your entire plot will become, "remember that one time I was Doc Ock?" in less than a couple of years, you're probably doing something wrong.

Ask your parents/congressman about that time they were kids, reading about The Phantom helping install the brave FREEDOM FIGHTER Castro in their silly comic books.

And maybe how their generation also grew up watching Bugs Bunny & friends shoot shotguns at each other's faces, dress up in womens clothing and tongue kiss each other, and how it directly affected their lives.

They already did it when Logan ended up in Parker's body. Parker's 15 year-old body. He promptly propositioned the jailbate MJ.

And Logan's a good guy.

\Still wasn't as creepy as the Pietro-Wanda twincest in Ultimates.

Or Logan lusting after teenage Jean Grey...and subconsciously at least, at her daughter, Rachel (as seen when he was being forced to work for Hydra)

Well, the long-term effect is that Pete is seeing (even at this early stage) how he never applied himself as much as he could have to both his personal life and his life as Spider-Man. Otto has already improved Pete's crime-fighting tactics and arsenal significantly, and he did something Pete could never do: He told MJ that they both needed to move on and not pursue a relationship because their relationship was a continual loop- It always ended in MJ getting hurt or being endangered and Pete having to come to her rescue.

Otto made spider-bots that patrol the city for him, so he didn't have to go out on patrol and miss out on his personal life as much as Pete did. When a crime is spotted, THEN he can go out and stop it.

He made his costume more useful, giving himself a few new gadgets to make the job easier.

He built a robot to assist him in the lab, so he wasn't doing everything himself.

When this is all over and Pete's back in control of his own brain and body, he's going to have few excuses for failing to keep up the improvements Otto made to his life, unless he decides to devolve and go back to being the Pete that is known for being a brilliant, scatterbrained spaz that doesn't apply himself enough to be at the top of things.

At the very least, I hope he maintains the new status quo with MJ (I applauded the end of their marriage because the "Peter save me!" stories were getting boring) and keeps some of the costume improvements. The mirror lenses were cool, but Otto's lenses with a heads-up-display, night vision, sensors, etc. are far cooler and more useful. He doesn't have to go full on Iron Spider, but a few gadgets are totally what Peter Parker, genius inventor, was always about.

Relationship-wise, Parker should be dating another superhero. He should be with someone who doesn't need protecting, and who can't be exploited by his enemies. A while back, Carol Danvers (Captain Marvel) admitted to liking him, and they've been kind of flirty. I'd love to see Spider-Man dating Captain Marvel simply because he would have a HUGE weight off his shoulders. She's exceptionally powerful, damn near invulnerable, and her identity is public. There's absolutely nothing for Pete to be worried about if one of his enemies decides to go after her.

I also think it would be interesting if he would take his short trip to the Ultimate Universe as a cue, and consider marching over to the Jean Grey School to ask Kitty Pryde if she'd like to go out some time. Again, she's a great choice because none of Spider-Man's enemies are going to be quite so much of a threat to her as they are to girls like Gwen, MJ, Carly, Deborah, Betty or Liz.
