The events of ASM #80.BEY have set Doctor Octopus on a collision course with the Beyond Corporation and their Spider-Hero in residence. Ben Reilly isn’t the only one with new tricks up his sleeve, or, in Ock’s case, MANY sleeves.

32 PGS./Rated T+ …$3.99

The book includes a storyline catch-up and creators credits page.

Doctor Octopus has attacked the Beyond Corporation knowing or believing it to have been founded in lies.

Beyond’s Spider-Man Ben Reilly joins the party…

…only to see Doc Ock go flaccid.

Turns out Beyond tech can do that too.

Not to be outdone, Ock still has a surprise to subdue Reilly.

That puts him in the crosshairs of Beyond Corporation’s head…

…who wants her stolen drive back.

The book ends with Doctor Octopus set to attack another Beyond Corporation office.

The Pulse:

While Doc Ock likely has his own agenda, it’s nice to see him portrayed as a straight-up villain after his run as the Superior Spider-Man. Curious about what’s next as the Spider-Man Beyond story races to its end in the coming months. Awesome art. 8 out of 10.
