Speculator Corner: Did Superior Spider-Man Begin In Amazing Spider-Man #600?

So Amazing Spider-Man #698 is selling from between $5 and $13 on eBay… but where did it all begin?

Could it be a certain scene in Amazing Spider-Man #600? The issue saw Otto Octavius coming to terms with the damage done to his very-human body after years of fighting superheroes, given a terminal diagnosis and choosing to turn to technology to fill the gaps.

It took 98 issues for his body to actually die. But his mind?

When Spider-Man uploaded himself. When he put his brainwave pattern into whatever Doctor Octopus technology he was using… at what cost?

Currently Amazing Spider-Man #600 sells on eBay for around cover price or less. Will that be the case tomorrow?
