Wolverine should be able to tell if something is up. Unlike most, I'm up for the body switcheroo, just as long as everyone else acts in character about it. Certain people would notice, and it would cause interesting problems for Ock trying to throw them off his scent. That's what I want to see in this story.

yeah i agree

Can beast stick to buildings ala spider-man ? Cos he is doing on the cover

Ock is quite a a*+.Be interesting to see who figures him out first.

@dickbelt: There's a giant spider with human eyes, a guy who has spider-powers that has currently had his soul transplanted with that of one of his arch-enemies; a guy with blue fur all over his body and another with claws that come out of his hands; a chick who can control weather with her thoughts...and your primary concern is wondering how/why a guy who can turn himself into solid ice is wearing clothes?

Nitpick much? :)

Yes, Beast is often shown hanging from the ceiling and such. He just digs in with his claws I guess.

So only DD can detect Oct-Spider?

Won't it just take one telepath to out Dock Ock?

Either Jean Grey or Wolvrine should be able to see that isn't the real spiderman

Beast can wall crawl, I am unsure exactly how he does so but I believe it started out he would dig in with his claws but due to artistic license over the years he simple is able to stick... possibly it is part of the mutation with the pads on his hands and feet?

I agree that a telepath should be able to out Doc Ock if they probed deeper than surface thoughts. Otherwise they would probably just think "wow spider-man is totally an asshole!"... However I don't get why people would think Wolverine would be able to ID the change up... I get that he can figure out a lot of shapechangers by scent but as this is Peter's body... I really don't get how he would be the one to figure it out.

CAN WE PUT PETER PARKER BACK THE WAY HE WAS? CAN WE CLONE HIM A NEW BODY? CALL DR STRANGE? SOMETHING? THEY MADE A SPIDER SIGNAL FOR GAWD SAKES..

Is his back symbol a tick?
LordHuck - 1/11/2013, 5:02 PM
1st off that is Rachael Grey not Jean.

2nd Doc Ock had to anticipate an encounter with a telepath. My $$ says he has telepathy blocking tech in his mask.
