Chapter Nine: Great Minds Never Think Alike.

Mercy Hospital, in one of the intensive care rooms, Julia Carpenter, the second Madame Web, laid ever more still ever since he went in her comatose state. One of the nurses came check her vitals routinely to ensure no complications occur.

“I wonder if even psychics are aware when in a coma?” the nurse thought as she finished the check and left to other patients. Unknown to her, Julia’s hand began to twitch and her eyes began to move under the closed eyelids.

Meanwhile outside city hall, two Spider-Men were preparing for the fight of their lives. Miguel O’Hara, Spider-Man 2099, took a defensive stance while Otto Octavius, in the body of the modern Spider-Man Peter Parker, took the offensive stance.

“That was a clever trick you’ve set up for me.” Otto said calmly as he seemed to be stalling for something.

“It was easy; all I needed was an angry mad scientist, some holographic explosive mines, and some good calculations.” Miguel mocked, keep an eye on Octavius.

“If that’s the case, can you calculate how long you can srvive this?!” Otto growled as he lunged at Miguel with his mechanical arms aimed at him. But suddenly Miguel dodged very quickly by simply side stepping as Octavius crashed into a garbage can as the trash covered and stained Octavius’s new costume.

“How can he dodge that attack so quickly? Even my sider sense could’t aid in an attack like that?” Otto asked himself as he tried to get back on his feet.

“How Otto? I just have a good perception of my surroundings and I recommend that new look for that costume, looks very matching to your soul.” Miguel chuckled as he pointed out the dirt covering Octavius.

“I killed Peter to rid of his annoyance, I can kill you the same!” Otto proclaimed as the two dueled.

“He may be a fast fighter, but he’ll realize I’m faster.” Miguel thought as the two seemed to be locked in an almost even fight. Otto tried to use his upgrades to maim Miguel, but it seemed that Spider-Man 2099 was one step ahead as he could easily dodge Otto’s attacks with little effort on his part. Miguel even countered attack, though it did little damage and it seemed it was to spite Octavius.

“You know Otto, I’ve always wonder how dangerous one man ego can bring to the world. Then you decided to screw up reality itself by taking the life of better man, tried to eliminate his legacy, and bring fascism to New York? Dr. Doom looks like a saint compared to you?” Miguel berated Octavius as he webbed Otto’s face and kicked him down on the ground.

“I’m trying to build a superior world, a world without Peter Parker!” Octavius countered as he removed the webbing and saw that Spider-Man 2099 is gone.

“You’re going to destroy the world. Time is decaying and if you don’t surrender, there won’t be any world!” Miguel’s voice demanded as Otto tried to find the source.

“Liar, you are simply trying to have me surrender this body so you can bring Peter back, but I am here to stay. I AM THE FUTURE!” Octavius proclaimed, as if his old Doctor Octopus persona was unwittingly returning.

“No Ock, I am!” Miguel corrected as Otto looked up to see Miguel free falling down like a missile  and landed on Otto, using the force to destroy the device on Otto’s back and making his mechanical arms useless.

“And soon you’ll simply be a relic of the past Octavius!” Miguel said in victory as it seemed he had won.

“Know, that’ll be you O’Hara…” Octavius hissed as suddenly a massive army of his spider bots surrounded them.

“Oh dear, your spider bots, whatever should I do? Oh how about I push this button!” Miguel laughed as he pressed a button on his wrist and suddenly the spider bots began to have static surrounding them before they all fell on the ground and lost all movements.

“My pets, but how?!” Octavius asked in shock as his army seemed to fall dead.

“EMP pulse, remember I have future tech at my disposal. Face it you’ve lost, without your bots I won.” Miguel told over his opponent.

It was then Otto realized he had lost. He’s now a wanted man, has no resources, has no allies, and has now realized he isn’t a superior Spider-Man. It was then he grabbed a fallen spider bot and whispered “You’re right, I have been defeated. I am a loser…” he then pressed a button on the robot “…BUT I AM A SORE LOSER!”

Otto suddenly lunge at Miguel and placed the spider bot and the robot’s legs clamped down on O’Hara’s head as Otto leaped a distance away. In seconds toe robot exploded and Spider-Man 2099 was launched back to a car behind him and seemed to gone limp.

“If I’m going down, I’m taking you with me…” Octavius said with venom as he regained his strength and stood up and just when was about to leave the scene, a soda bottle hits Otto in the back of the head. He turned to see a little girl in the middle of the street with other items in hand and had both tears and anger in her eyes.

Instantly Otto recognized the girl, it was the child who he saved from the brain damaged received during his time as Doctor Octopus, and said “I will forgive this once, now go home child.” Only to have the girl through a piece of cinderblock right into Otto’s face, cutting a portion of the suit and leaving trail of blood.

“You murdered Spidey…” the girl said coldly as he seemed to stare Otto down. Angered and now over the edge, Otto was about to kill the girl before suddenly he was barraged with various items and it seemed to overwhelm Octavius. It was then various citizens seemed to surround Otto and grabbed whatever they could and threw it at Octavius. Things like garbage, loose paper, even faller spider bots while saying things like “murderer”, “fake”, and even “monster”.

It was at that moment all of what’s left of his Otto’s Spider-Man persona had completely shattered, leaving what was truly Doctor Octopus in Spider-Man’s body as he yelled ‘YOU IDIOTS! I AM A REAL HERO! I HAVE MADE YOUR STUPID CESSPOOL OF A CITY SAFE AND THIS IS THE GRADITUDE I GET!? I AM YOUR SUPERIOR! I AM YOUR HERO!”

“No, they know who the real hero is, and his name is Peter Parker.” A voice said behind him and suddenly Spider-Man 2099 kicked Octavius in the face, knocking him to a wall as Miguel ,now with his masked partially burned off and revealing his bright red eyes and fangs, began to overpower Otto as he punched and slashed Octavius with his natural claws.

“Think you can defeat someone who’s suit is made of unstable molecules?! I may not have the right to say I’m the best Spider-Man, Peter has proved that he would never compromise his morals to take an easy way out. All you’ve done is turning your desire of perfection and nearly sent this city straight to hell! And seriously claws?! That’s my trademark!” Miguel yelled as he continued his assault.

“Desire for perfection is the true ideal to follow, and I always have a perfect way to win!” Otto said as he grabbed another spider bot.

“That trick won’t work on me. But I have one that’ll work on you!” Miguel said as he open his jaws, letting his fangs extend and then bit down on Otto’s neck. Otto pushed O’Hara off and in a matter of seconds; his vision began to fog as his thoughts started to turn into a jumbled mess.

“What…did…you do?” Otto weakly asked as his words began to slur.

“Neural toxin. You’re lucky that’s a small dose, otherwise it’ll kill you. I may not be the best Spider-Man, but I’m definitely more spider-like and right now you’ve been…” Miguel explained as he suddenly gave Octavius a hard uppercut “…SHOCKED!”. It was then Otto was out cold, defated at least.

Taking some time to recover, Miguel then pressed his communication device and said “I got him, prep the device. I’ll bring him in.” Spider-Man 2099 then webbed up Octavius head to foot and carried him off to Avengers Tower. And just as Miguel left, the citizens that helped him cheered as they knew a real hero has defeated Octavius.

Meanwhile at Mercy Hospital, Julia Carpenter’s room, Julia continued to stir in her comatose state, as if she was trying hard to wake up. And moments later, Julia opened her eyes and whispered ‘The time has come…”

To be continued.

Yeah, I read the whole thing, and it was quite enjoyable. Can't wait for the sequel.

 

You know, your story reminded me of Carolyn Trainer, aka Lady Octopus. I would love to see her reaction to the events of your story. I'm sure she'd be none too happy to not only learn of Ock's fate.

To be honest, she was added at the last minute. Originally I was going to have citizens humiliate Otto like what happened in this chapter, but I wanted it to be more powerful by bringing the little girl from issue 8 back but this time against Otto
