COMICS: The Shocking Twist In Today's AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #698 Revealed
Dan Slott told fans that Amazing Spider-Man #698 would be a must-have, and he wasn't kidding! With the issue now on sale, a page from it is doing the rounds which reveals something that it's fair to say no one will have seen coming! WARNING: MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD
If you don't want to be spoiled, stop reading now as there are MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD (and that's your FINAL warning). In today's Amazing Spider-Man #698, it is revealed that Doctor Octopus has somehow switched minds with Peter Parker and is now in possession of him. That of course means that Peter is trapped in Otto's dying body, a body which goes into cardiac arrest at the conclusion of the issue. An unexpected and shocking twist, although exactly how long this has been the case for remains to be seen as it is never made abundantly clear in the comic itself.
Many fans are speculating that it has been the status quo since the conclusion of "Ends of the Earth", but that doesn't make a lot of sense because it is only in this issue that we really notice the change in Peter's personality before the big reveal. With still two issues to go before #700, there's nothing to necessarily say that this means Otto Octavius will be the "Superior" Spider-Man. Regardless, are people really going to want to read a comic book with a Peter Parker possessed by the villain who killed him?! The reaction on social networking sites has been VERY mixed!
Hopefully we will get some definitive answers in Amazing Spider-Man #699. Below is a scanned page of the reveal courtesy of our friends over at Newsarama. What do you guys think about this?
