Doctor Otto Octavius was man filled with hope and excitement at the prospect of finally completing his life's work, a limitless source of free energy. One young student named Peter Parker raised concern over the device, which could cause massive destruction if, it malfunction. Otto brushed these aside and donned a harness of four mechanical tentacles, each with its own A.I. and linked them to his own brain.
Octavius started the machine and all went well...for a minute. The artificial sun grew out of control, the power containers breaking down and the magnetic pull become to power. Otto tried to contain it, but was knocked out and the inhibiter chip that kept the tentacles in check was shattered.

Otto would rebuild his machine by taking what he needed for it and if Spider-Man got in the way, then he would meet his demise at the hands of Doctor Octopus!

Knees and elbows are your basic double hinges (yeah!). His biceps are socket swivels and the same goes for his shoulder and hips. His head is a swivel joint. Doctor Octopus' ankles, yes his ankles, are swivel joints and the tip of his feet are hinges. The back of the feet are also hinges. Each...[See More]
