Yeah, I'm surprised no-one realised what was going on. All through 699 and 700 Peter is behaving like Doctor Octopus and questioning why. It seemed pretty clear cut to me that Oc's memories and experiences were influencing him, and thus, the effect would be the same for Otto in Spidey's body.Otto wasn't just seeing memories. As Peter was dying Otto experienced the full extent of Peter's life flashing before his eyes, not seeing years upon years of memories, he was experincing it, feeling what Peter felt. That much emotion crammed into your being in a very short amount of time is going to have a profound effect on you. If you have seen the episodeI agree with Shane that I was a little put off by the part of Doc Ock seeing Peter's memories. Just because that stuff is important to Peter doesn't mean that its going to be important to Ock. Doc Ock has been a villain and has hurt people without caring. Just because Peter feels one way doesn't mean that Doc Ock would care now.The Inner Light of Star Trek: TNG, Otto went through pretty much the same thing as Picard.
The treatment of Hope has been undeniably bad, with regards to her powers and her origins. It's like the X-men just forgot to find out who her parents were. It was laziness on the part of editorial I think. I don't remember specifically if the issue was good or bad, though Portacio's recent X-men art was a car crash. Those early 90's issues were gold though (pun intended)
I don't think it was bad. Those were the Whilce Portacio issues right? I used to love him back around Uncanny X-Men 281-292...but now? His style isn't jiving with me. And it has changed since those days.
