Spider-Man vs Doctor Octopus Poster # 5 Greg Horn Movie


SKU: 12930 Category:


From Greg Horn: “This was the cover I did for WIZARD #150. We were not able to get this image into Wizard’s Previews ad, so a lot of people were surprised when this popped up in their stores! I think the Doctor Octopus arms from the upcoming Spiderman2 movie are really striking and scary looking, so I wanted to get the effect of them moving dangerously fast like serpents.” Over the years, Dr. Octopus has become one of most recognizable members of Spider-Man’s rogues’ gallery. He remains one of Spider-Man’s most dangerous foes, having many legendary battles with him over the years. His crowning achievement was the near-fatal stabbing of Spider-Man’s then-partner/lover, the Black Cat, who was placed in critical condition. This led to Spider-Man beating Dr. Octopus within an inch of his life. The trauma of the beating he received from Spider-Man left Octavius severely phobic of Spider-Man and spiders in general for years. This lasted until Spider-Man was forced to let his nemesis beat him in combat so as to allow him to break free of his fears and recruit him to save New York City from an exploding nuclear reactor.
