- So, basically, you want me to be your weapons supplier and backseat guy? The Finch to your Reece, Mr. Person of Interest? Thanks, but no thanks. Actually... I'll do it. There's nothing better for me to do anyways.
- Doctor Octopus
Doctor Octopus' origin is exactly the same as his 616 counterpart. However, afterwards is where it all changes. After his tentacles were fused to him, Peter found him and tried to help heal him. He also revealed that he was Spider-Man. Otto, in his rage, fought Peter and harmed him. He snapped the tentacles' control over his mind, and he decided to become a good guy. He wanted to go solo, but Spidey told him he could help make better webbing and other similar weapons. He initially refused, but soon agreed. He was also trained by Peter, during which time Peter also went public with his Spider-Man identity. After he was able to defeat Spidey, Otto was allowed in the field as part of the Dynamic Duo.
