COMICS: Chris Yost Teases Doctor Octopus' Mysterious Plans In AVENGING SPIDER-MAN
If you're still on the fence about Marvel's new and "Superior" Spider-Man, this interview should change your mind! What will happen when the Doctor Octopus possessed Peter Parker comes face to face with Wolverine and Rachel Grey (a telepath). What does he want in the Baxter Building?
