Marvel to Replace More Characters' Brains with Doctor Octopus?

Marvel to Replace More Characters' Brains with Doctor Octopus?

A first look at Superior Spider-Man #6AU seems to confirm rumors that Marvel intends to put Doctor Octopus's brain in more characters' heads.

Source: Press Release

Many fans were skeptical when they learned that popular hero Peter Parker would die and have his mind replaced by Doctor Octopus to become the Superior Spider-Man, but, despite a mildly rapey beginning, the book has gotten off to a pretty good start and most of the fanboy rage has subsided. As a result, Marvel seems to be exploring the possibility of putting Doctor Octopus's brain into more heroes and villains, starting with some Ultron clones in this preview of Superior Spider-Man #6AU, an Age of Ultron tie-in.

After lamenting the loss of a good portion of his wardrobe, on the final page, Doctor Spiderpuss appears to be using his spider-bots to transfer his consciousness to some attacking Ultron robots, causing them to sprout Doc Ock style tentacles from their backs, which will surely not arouse the suspicion of any of his Avengers colleagues. Is this a one-off event, or is it the beginning of a newer, edgier clone saga? We can only hope it's the latter, and that Age of Ultron will spin off immediately into another super mega event that forces readers to have to buy a bunch of confusingly numbered tie-in issues and changes the Marvel status quo forever until the next super mega event.

Check out the press release and preview below. Superior Spider-Man #6AU hits stores on March 27.

Submit Or Perish! – Your First Look At SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN #6AU!

Marvel is pleased to present your first look at Superior Spider-Man #6AU, from the red-hot creative team of writer Christos Gage and artist Dexter Soy! With Ultron running rampant throughout the Marvel Universe, the Superior Spider-Man must think fast, and act faster as the clock winds down to complete annihilation. How does Doc Ock fit into this new world? Can he work with the few remaining heroes to make it out alive?

With the robotic revolution in full force, no fan can miss how Age of Ultron will ultimately change the Marvel Universe leaving no hero or villain unscathed! So what are you waiting for? Head on over to your local comic shop and reserve a copy of Superior Spider-Man #6AU today! Fans have been demanding to know more about Age Of Ultron since Free Comic Book Day last year, and come this March – some of those questions and more (including an ending nobody will see coming) will be answered in Age of Ultron!

Well I can think of several Marvel characters that could do with a personality transfer.

It's definitely better than the Hitch art in the main AoU book.
