But things aren't so friendly in this Spidey's neighborhood - and his more ruthless approach to crimefighting is cause for concern for his "fellow" heroes.

Featuring classic foes including the Vulture and the Green Goblin, and new friends such as Anna Maria Marconi, this is Spider-Man like you've never seen him before - but whatever happened to the real Peter?

A dying wish for revenge! Dr. Octopus was given a year to live, his body and brain in terminal decline after a lifetime of brutal battles with his arch-foe Spider-Man. So the brilliant madman used that time as you might expect. First, he mobilized an army of Octobots to take over Manhattan. Then, he assembled six sinister super villains to abduct Norman Osborn's child. Finally, he pursued Spider-Man to the ends of the Earth while threatening to burn the planet to a cinder. And each time, his ambitious plans ended in failure. Or did they? Were his defeats further proof of his madness - or his genius? With Dr. Octopus just hours from death, Spider-Man is about to learn the answer, as one of his oldest enemies turns the tables on him with a dying wish that spells doom for Peter Parker and everyone he loves! Collecting AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #698-700.

Every kid thinks he's different. Some of them are. Once he was Otto Octavius - a brilliant but introverted young scientist who built a set of highly advanced robotic arms to help him further the field of atomic research. But a freak laboratory accident grafted the mechanical tentacles to his body and altered Octavius' mind: Abandoning his scientific dreams, he turned instead to a life of crime! Now, peer behind the curtain to witness the birth of a mad genius! Featuring Doctor Octopus' first encounters with both Peter Parker and Spider-Man, the first appearance of Doc Ock's arms, and the true inspiration that led him to build his remarkable appendages - which may have come from a certain web-slinging wall-crawler! It's the beginning of an amazing, superior rivalry for the ages! Collecting SPIDER-MAN/DOCTOR OCTOPUS: YEAR ONE #1-5.
