Dr. Otto Octavian was a scientist at Oscorp, trying to alternate solutions to limb regrowth with Dr. Curt Conners. But when Conners research went down the animal route, Octavian was replaced because his robotics expertise were no longer relevant.
Determined to prove himself worthy, he continued to develop his mechanical arms controlled by a brain-computer interface. Even though there were several malfunctions, with the arms becoming self aware, he presented his invasion back to Norman Osbourne. Osbourne promised he would finance him if he could use the arms to kill Spider-man.
He reluctantly accepted, stating that the arms were not designed as weapons. However during a battle with Spider-man, the web-slinger damaged the interface. The arms took over and Otto Octavian lost his mind to them.
Furious at both Spider-man and Oscorp, Dr. Octopus seeks revenge on both and to continue his development… but is it Otto or the arms in control?

What the hell is that?
Full details for Bernice Summerfield: Missing Persons - including cast and story blurbs - are now available from the Big Finish website!
A new five-part box-set featuring the adventures of archaeologist Bernice Summerfield.
1. BIG DIG
Written by Hamish Steele
Bernice has been invited to appear on a very special live edition of the archaeology series Big Dig: a programme she grew up with as a girl… which now makes her feel very old. Not as old, however, as the mysterious stone robot she unwittingly uncovers during an excavation on the planet Saravas.
With no other trace of civilisation, this could be the only clue to the Truth of the planet’s inhabitants. But when Ruth and Jack start acting strangely, Bernice realises there was a reason things were hidden… and secrets aren’t the only things to be buried.
Welcome to the biggest Big Dig ever!
2. THE REVENANT’S CARNIVAL
Written by Martin Day
Bernice Summerfield has never been to Moros Prime before - and it’s unlikely she’ll be rushing back. Moros is a world of diplomacy and warfare, ruled over by a variety of creeps, dandies and outright weirdoes, where cybernetic implants are the latest fashion accessory and the native humans are ethically harvested for their organs.
Peter Summerfield, however, has a job to do: heading the security team at the country estate of Willem van der Heever, the effective ruler of Moros Prime. Because Van der Heever is throwing a masquerade ball – which means fancy dress, fluorescent peacocks and an almost certain attempt on his life.
Van der Heever is not without his enemies… But as Bernice and Peter uncover more about his past, whose side will they end up taking?
3. THE BRIMSTONE KID
Written by David Llewellyn
“Welcome to the White Rabbit. What’ll it be?”
“You can start by locking and bolting the doors. Then everyone in here can keep real calm…”
Bernice and Irving were expecting another quiet night at the White Rabbit saloon – their only customers a veteran prospector named Toothless Bob and timid schoolteacher Miss Hannigan. But the evening takes a sinister turn with the arrival of the Brimstone Kid, a wanted outlaw, and the terrifying bounty hunter Cazador hot on his trail…
Soon, Bernice and Irving find themselves caught up in an adventure involving giant, flightless crows, buried treasure and the galaxy’s most ruthless detective agency.
4. THE WINNING SIDE
Written by James Goss
Bernice is lost in the ruins of an alien world. Long ago, something arrived there. Something arrived and found an idyllic civilisation: a city of wonders full of artists and scientists and poets… Something came to this world and destroyed it.
Wandering the ruins, Bernice tries to solve the mystery. What came to this planet? What wiped out its people? Was it a plague? An alien invasion?
Bernice Summerfield explores all that remains of paradise. And she discovers the name of the creature that came and wiped it out…
5. IN LIVING MEMORY
Written by Scott Handcock and Gary Russell
Bernice Summerfield is alone…
Having been captured – albeit technically rescued – by an old enemy, she finally learns the truth her friends and their disappearances… and realises that she is a cog in a far greater machine.
Whatever happens, this is now the end for Bernice Summerfield… and she’s determined to go down fighting.
But how long can she resist when the odds are stacked against her? And is there really such a thing as a happy ending…?

How do I even begin to explain Emma Frost?
Emma Frost is flawless. And one time she punched Sebastian Shaw in the face. It was awesome.
She used to be the queen bee of her highschool, using her mind reading mutation to spread gossip and ace every test. But when she was outed as a freak and transferred to Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters, she went from being the most popular kid in school to being the outcast. The only mutant who gave her the time of day was Mystique and it was together that they transferred to the Brotherhood of Mutants.
Emma quickly became tired of answering to yet another man and Magneto was immune to her psychic abilities. So she in worked her way into the Inner Circle of the Hellfire Club and ruled as the White Queen, along with Sebastian Shaw’s Black King. Rumour has it though he is just her psychic puppet.
However, during an experiment in swapping mutant abilities, Emma lost her psychic powers and gained the ability to change her skin into diamonds. She managed to convince everyone she still had her psychic powers with a few simple cold readings but really her main goal is to get that power back. As much as she likes the new power, the Diamond-Emma has a wildly different, somewhat-evil personality who will stop at nothing to make sure the real Emma doesn’t get rid of her.
Therefore, her loyalties in the Mutant civil war have often changed, but her true loyalties have always been to her personal quest.
