    Default 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?

    Never liked the redesign, trying to turn a corny '60s villain "hardcore" and "badass."

    Can't see that design as badass. Armor doesn't mean badass.

    I bought this from Comixology yesterday (and loved it!). If anything I think it's given the answer to how Peter survives as I think he's downloaded himself in to the Octopus exo-skeleton.

    Since this article was posed with a question mark, I will answer: No.

    Did Rich's shameless grab for hits start with his first Superior Spider-Man news item?

    You decide!

    Did Superior Spider-Man Begin In Amazing Spider-Man #600?? Well, according to the solicits to #699, looks like that might be a yes.

    This is the MUST READ issue that turns over all the cards and reveals secrets that have been set as far back as ENDS OF THE EARTH, SPIDER-ISLAND, and 99 issues ago in ASM #600!
    Time to raid those back issue bins.

    Wouldn't it not have happened until Ends of the Earth? If Ock transferred his mind in 600 why would he...stop Peter? Am I misunderstanding it all?!

    I can't remember, what was Ock's scheme back in 600? Was that when he was trying to fry the Earth with the heat of the sun?
    ShadowMax: Has anyone actually verified this is the real Steve Wacker?

    Me: Quick Steve, tell us something only Steve Wacker would know.

    Steve Wacker: [The Marvel relaunch] secretly is a reboot.

    Me: If you mean the continuity won't match up with any of the preceding issues, anyone could have predicted that.
