The newly relaunched Marvel Comics series Ultimate Spider-Man from the creative team of Jonathan Hickman, Marco Checchetto, David Messina, Matthew Wilson, and Cory Petit has been receiving rave reviews–and deservedly so. This look at a married Peter Parker with kids who gains his spider powers later in life has been a breath of fresh air so far. Also a breath of fresh air has been the reimagining of Peter’s world, including his family, coworkers–and villains. This May, one of Spider-Man’s most iconic adversaries is getting a new look–the brilliant, often mad Otto Octavius, better known as Doctor Octopus! How will Otto figure into this Peter Parker’s world? We’ll have to wait until next month on May 29 to find out!
