    I understand Otto killing too much hampering the story.

    Hobgoblin>Green Goblin. Gobby is literally Evil McEvil nowadays. But I at least like how he is drawn.

    Otto getting a doctorate and company is cool. It goes down the tubes when Peter comes back in Amazing Spider-Man because status-quo though.

    What do you think of Otto's inventions/strategies compared to Peter? And how do you feel about Spider-Man 2099? Also, have any of the villains stood out to you in this comic?

    If you want to see Otto teaming up with heroes, read Avenging Spider-Man 15.1 to the end of its run, and then Superior Spider-Man Team-Up. 15.1 takes place in-between ASM 700 and Superior Spider-Man #1.

    Peter never worked for Doc Ock in the comics. Spider-Man first met Doc Ock after he started going villain from his radioactive accident.

    Meaningful episodic filler is fine with me.

    Anna is arguably the best part of Superior Spider-Man. Aunt May is best when she is human instead of just a doting mom. Reminds me of Spider-Man 2 when Peter tells her he was involved in Uncle Ben's death and she briefly distances herself out of shock, but then gives Peter meaningful advice later on during the garage sale.

    I don't really like the Venom arc too much. Then again, I don't like anything Venom-related outside of Flash Thompson's solo book lol. Symbiote influence works best when it's nuanced and releases inhibitions like alcohol instead of an Evil McEvil split personality.

    And I'm actually sort of fine with the dreams lol. They ARE creepy as hell, I don't deny that. But they're still just dreams. And if you can access someone else's memories, it is bound to happen. Although it does bring up an unorthodox issue of consent when it comes to something intangible like viewing memories, and if you can even control that or not.

    They did make the best story out of it, but it's not a story they had to do. And not one I think adds onto who Otto has been as an established character. But it does add onto his conviction as a superhero though. Maybe I should reread the story to reevaluate my thoughts.

    It works since Otto can desire sexual urges and has been with girls before, but that usually happens because they bond over science and things like that. Here, Otto's just... horny lol. Which is possible, it just feels tacked on because Freaky Friday stories like to wonder about how a mind swapped person might try to steal the other person's lover.

    But the actual narrative makes sense. I liked it like you have when I first read it. But now in hindsight, is it really that satisfying to read a story where a villain learns that "hey, stealing someone's girlfriend maybe ISN'T the right thing to do" gets played off as great moral development? Not doing something that scummy at the last minute does not make you a good person. Even considering doing that is still shameful. Otto's moral resolution is still interesting and compelling though since he does it for reasons that separate himself from Peter.

    Force Ghost Peter is used too much, very true. Especially when he isn't necessary for readers learning about Otto with their own eyes but being forced to see how Peter processes everything too. Characters being the viewers in a sense to process a series' surreal elements can and has worked, but here it feels unnecessary since Peter is slower on the uptake than the viewers themselves and does not play any other role besides that.

    It might be logical for certain characters, but I don't think it's necessary for Otto. An egotist like him could easily find someone like MJ to be an annoyance he wants to cut off. An insecure codependent person who craves affection like Kilgrave switching minds with someone else would make sense out of trying to bang that guy's lover. Otto's never been like that. It's pushing a random flaw onto him. How Otto deals with Peter already having a girlfriend is inevitable, but it happening in this specific way isn't all that necessary to me.

    Start from Amazing Spider-Man #676. Superior takes place right after #700.

    The final Amazing Spider-Man story before Superior is about Peter Parker in Doc Ock's dying body fighting against Otto in Peter's body. Freaky Friday final showdown.

    If you are still open to it, you can put Superior Spider-Man on the bacburner for now and read twenty-thirty Amazing Spider-Man issues leading up to Superior Spider-Man first so the events that happen there make more sense and you are more invested.

    One of my issues with Spider-Man 2 is that Alfred Molia's Doctor Octopus is NOTHING like comic book Doctor Octopus when you take away the explosion accident and the appearance. Yeah, Doctor Octopus has always been a jerk obsessed with his own ego. The experiment that created him did alter his mind a little, but stories about his childhood like in Superior Spider-Man strongly hint his antagonistic narcissism has always been there. Spectacular Spider-Man is the most accurate portrayal of him, aside from working for Norman Osborn at first (Spider-Man shows really like making Otto work for Norman before going bad for some reason. Almost as a way to imply one will always be superior over the other as Spider-Man's greatest nemesis).

    Massacre is a woman. Lily Hollister, a celebrity that dated Norman Osborn from a while. Came across the Goblin Formula though, got sprayed with it somehow, teamed up with Norman Osborn and became his lover. Had a kid with Norman, but then revealed it was Harry's kid. There's... a lot of baggage there. Peter and MJ have not been together for years, so Carlie Cooper has been Peter's cop girlfriend since then. She found out Peter's secret identity.. Although they recently broke up before Superior Spider-Man.
