    Default Superior Octopus Title Announced

    https://www.newsarama.com/40800-doc-...s-october.html

    Looks like someone will be following up on where Slott left SpOck. Maybe even Slott himself?

    Personally, I'd be happy if Slott was the one to write this. His Doc Ock was better than his Peter.

    I am so excited about this. I hope Slott is writing it because Slott has been the writer who has taken Otto to this point so I would like him to continue.
    PLUS ULTRA!

    I kept wondering if this one would actually happen or not. I hope that Mr. Slott is the writer on this as I really enjoyed the way he wrote Otto. Also it'll be interesting to see what or if any of the events of the current issue of Amazing Spider-Man are referenced.

    October is looking to be an extremely exciting month! I'll be picking up quite a few of these #1s - Shatterstar, Sleepwalker, and now Superior Octopus!

    I called this! I do think it's really interesting that he's in his Hydra outfit and wonder if that will lead to anything. Also of course, wondering who's gonna be writing it. Wouldn't be surprised at all if Slott comes back, though I would also be interested to hear from whoever else could possibly take over the character, none that I can think of at the top of my head.

    Spider-Man's "runner-up nemesis" returns in his own ongoing series

    I'm guessing since they've released promo art for "Ghost Spider" and now this that they're trickling out the new Spider-Titles. Miles will probably be next or come at some point.

    I don't know if I see Slott writing this, at least without a co-writer. Especially when he already has Iron Man and FF on his plate.

    Slott has seeded a number of books in the past (e.g. Agent Venom). Hopefully, this is another one and is following up properly on the Otto stuff in 800 (new name, at Horizon, etc.)

    I wouldn't be surprised if they try to spin this as an anti-hero book, but I'm going to have a hard time buying it.

    I am kind of curious if a Doc Ock book that's not replacing ASM like Superior did will do as well.

    I'm also curious how Spencer might play ball with this book. I don't think his Spider-Man would have handled Otto the same way Slott's did.

    One big plus here will be getting to see more of Anna Maria. She just kind of fell off the radar after Superior ended.

    I agree with you. Slott's Otto is the best rendition of the character in years if not ever. I couldn't be more excited about this news.

    Definitely another big plus. Anna Maria is a fantastic character and, in all honesty, she & Otto are one of my favorite comic book couples. Hopefully, we'll get an eventual reunion between them in the pages of "Superior Octopus". *crosses fingers*

    Do we know if Dan is writing this yet? Because it's about freaking time this happened and it would feel kind of weird if he wasn't writing it.
    Interesting they kept the font from Superior Spider-man though.

    And that's actually a potential problem they announced this. It's a satellite title so it's not like it can supersede the main book, but if Otto is in Spider-geddon as Superior Spider-man that means that if he dies in that book it's;
    1. Not permanent
    2. It's not the same Otto
    Meaning that Otto's fate could potentially be spoiled by us simply knowing he's in good enough condition to get a new book. Couldn't this have waited until after Spider-geddon? The teaser for Spider-geddon may be pretty bad since now we know ahead of time Insomniac Spider-man is fine (from his own game) and Otto gets a new book. I appreciate the title but Spider-office, for the love of Khonshu, stop spoiling the outcomes.

    Probably the best new character Slott created, honestly.
