Okay, comics day has been and gone.  And with it came Superior Spider-Man 31.  Where Peter Parker's memories are back in control of Peter Parker and Otto Octavius has sacrificed his own to save the city from the Green Goblin.

And dammit, I miss Otto Octavius already.

Doctor Octopus in charge of Peter Parker's head since Amazing Spider-Man 700 has been quite a ride.  For me, it was perhaps the SECOND greatest real change ever to happen in the decades of Spider-man's existence.  The first being Ben Reilly revealed during the Clone Saga as having been the real Spider-man, wandering the country thinking he was the clone.

Marvel copped out on that plot eventually too.

And brought back a Peter Parker who, for me, has become a stale character.

Otto Octavius for all his arrogance showed more real growth in his short time in Peter's head than Peter Parker showed over the course of the Spider-Man series.

Parker, for me, even though I could relate to him, was just doing the same old, same old, over again and again.

No, I liked Otto.

I felt his time as Superior Spider-Man he showed some real gains.

A sort-of redemption.

I stopped thinking of him as the ugly guy with the weird sunglasses and the eight octopus arms.  I got to like his Spider-Man, even if it was somethings a bit extreme.

Redemption isn't always built in a day.

Sadly, as with the end of the Clone Saga, my buying of Spider-Man titles will drop again.  It's only the sort of plots you get with the Clone Saga and the Superior Spider-Man Saga that makes me want to buy every issue.

If they ever bring back Otto Octavius, I'd prefer if it were as an extension of what he achieved in the Spider suit.

Vale Otto Octavius.

Have we had enough #cyclone #Ita #TCIta news now it's fizzled down?

Well, the FNQers still have the recovery/clean-up phase ongoing for a while longer:

Is anyone else having trouble with the latest Adobe flash update?

Now no video's working and the Firefox plug-ins for it keep crashing.

FIX Please, Adobe...

Cyclone Ita is now sailing out to see, although there's still some lingering rain and wind and some after-cyclone flooding.  From here on it's the clean-up and recovery phase for communities that it went over.  #TCIta #CycloneIta #cyclone #Queensland #Australia
