As Dr. Otto Octavius[]

Otto is a dark-haired, balding, bespectacled individual with green eyes. While not sporting a beard, he does seem to sport a five o'clock shadow. While heavier than most people his size, Otto hardly appears fat – he is at best chubby, which would be expected of an older man not engaging in regular exercise. He is generally seen wearing a green turtleneck sweater, often under a white lab-coat. In his youth, Otto had a full beard and long hair.

As Dr. Octopus[]

As Doctor Octopus, Otto wears a dark green body suit lined with a black polymer, along with round welding goggles. From the center of his lower back are four long mechanical arms, comprised of a black polymer. At the end of each claw are two sets of four sharp claws, the larger of which are tipped yellow.

Doctor Octopus is reconfigured by nanites into a healthy looking well-fit man with full brown hair. His attire has changed into that of his classic green and yellow comic costume (resembling his Spider-Man: The Animated Series incarnation).

Miscellaneous Skills[]





  • Doctor Octopus' Tentacles: With Peter's aid, Otto creates four mechanical arms, which he attaches to his lower back via a harness. At the end of each arm are two sets of claws: a larger set of four claws used for general purposes, and a smaller set used for more precision-intensive actions. These arms, which are connected to his nervous system via an intracranial neural network, are capable of neural transmission speeds faster than 1 nanosecond (equal to a billionth of a second), far faster than any signals that can travel inside the human brain. As a result, these arms function as if they were part of Otto himself, granting him reflexes that are at least on par, if not, superior to Spider-Man's. These arms possess superhuman strength and durability, rapid movement, omnidirectional motion, and allow Otto to scale almost any surface.

Early Life[]

Otto Octavius was a timid atomic scientist who was willing to apologize for every little thing. Otto was friends with Curt Connors in college. After they finished their studies, he went to work for Tricorp for some time, where he developed a set of four tentacle-like arms, which he used to perform more dangerous experiments. He stated that they allowed him to "multitask, manipulate different objects, and of course, maintain a safe distance." Otto's tentacles earned him the nickname "Dr. Octopus" from his future employer, Norman, even though Otto claimed the name was "so demeaning." Otto had developed a long term power source, dubbed the "Megalopack" while at Tricorp, though the company claimed possession of it when he left.

He later came to work for
