Otto Octavius (of Earth-1610), better known as Doctor Octopus, was a lab assistant to Norman Osborn and the one who created the spider that gave Peter Parker his powers.


Early Days

Ultimate Doom


After Norman Osborn as the Green Goblin escaped the Triskelion with five viilains, including Otto, they escaped to Norman's apartment. At Osborn's apartment, Otto started to talk to Norman about if they should kill Spider-Man or not, voting not to kill him saying that he was their greatest creation, having had a hand in creating the spider that give Peter his powers. An angry Norman attacked Otto, and after a long fight in the streets, Norman killed Octavius, by beating him to death.

Powers & Abilities


  • Ferrokinesis: Otto had the ability to control and move metal with his mind, like Magneto. He used his power of Ferrokinesis to create a new set of arms out of metal parts and used them to battle Spider-Man and Spider-Woman before being knocked out. Otto had the ability to mentally control these metal arms, even when they were miles away.


  • Scientific genius: Otto had a high intellgence having help in the process that made the OZ altered spider that bit Peter and Miles, given them their powers.



Tentacles: Within his old tentacles, a certain amount of projectile weapons were fused onto the ends of them, which were used as melee weapons.


Otto moved around fast by walking on all four of his tentacles (although he has been shown to need two in order to move).


With the ability to control metal, Otto was able to use any piece of metal as a weapon, but he only used this power to make tentacles for himself and use them as weapons.



Otto wore special glasses to protect his damaged eyes.


He moves around quickly by walking on his four tentacles (although he has been shown to require only two to walk on).


With his ability, Octavius could use any metal as a weapon, but he only uses this power to make tentacles. His original tentacles had a number of projectile weapons incorporated into the ends of them, which could also be used as melee weapons.


  • This version of Doctor Octopus is ranked as the 179th greatest comic book character by Wizard Entertainment.
