Oscorp Industries has weathered a bumpy year, but since the city fast-tracked their experimental energy facility, it has been smooth sailing. As the Oscorp Electromagnetic Power Plant nears completion, I sat down to discuss recent events with company spokesman Donald Menken.
Daily Bugle: How would you summarize the last few months?
Menken: Hectic, but exciting.
DB: Oscorp has faced several setbacks: contracts that went to other companies, harrowing ethics probes into the work of your scientists, and most importantly, Wall Street concerns about Norman Osborn’s health.
Menken: Should I be taking notes or should I wait for you to ask me a question?
DB: Um, wow, okay, I guess my question is: how much of Oscorp’s future success is riding on the successful completion of the power plant?
Menken: It’s going to be incredibly rewarding, Joy, but our real reward comes in achieving great scientific advances — and in providing the people of this city the cleanest, most cost-effective energy in history.
DB: After the trouble with Dr. Connors, has Oscorp taken extra steps to monitor the people responsible for designing and building the plant?
Menken: The problems we had with Dr. Connors won’t happen again. The Oscorp Electromagnetic Power Plant is the result of multiple departments within the company. Hundreds of dedicated employees are involved, not a single genius.
DB: So the plant is not, as sources indicate, based primarily on the designs of a single brilliant, if slightly eccentric, electrical engineer?
Menken: We are all links in the Oscorp chain, Joy, working together. Oscorp prides itself on functioning as a team, and that’s the story to tell about the new power plant.
DB: When will the plant be fully operational?
Menken: Plans are for the plant to be up and running by April 16. And when that switch gets thrown, the city is going to get a night it will never forget.
We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead.
It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp.
