Part one of "Ends of the Earth", the next big spider-man event! The Doc Ock story you've waited 50 years for! Doctor Otto Octavius holds the entire earth hostage with his dying breath. What price will spider-man have to pay to buy the whole world one more day? Special appearance by The Avengers!

Complete Plot

The story, and the Ends of the Earth, begins with Spider-Man fighting Equinox. Peter Parker has been busy at Horizon Labs and is showcasing new technology that he developed. These include a Spider Glider and Spider Bombs; both of which are influenced by Spider-Man's old foe, Green Goblin. With this new technology, Spider-Man easily takes care of Equinox but one of the firefighters has his leg severed so Spider-Man helps get him to the hospital where he stands a chance to get his leg reattached.

Peter Parker has been developing new technology to combat any foe that he has faced before, specifically his worst enemies the Sinister Six.

Problem strikes Horizon Labs when Mayor Jameson arrives and attempts to shut Horizon Labs down. He cites a number of offenses that give proof to how dangerous the Labs are. The real reason why he wants to shut down Horizon Labs is because they were almost responsible for the death of his son, John Jameson.

Our story switches over to a secret underwater location where the Sinister Six are plotting their next big move. Doctor Octopus has devised a plan to speed up global warming but this was just a sample of the technology that he has developed. He plans to use this technology, not to speed up global warming, but to reverse it and thus be remembered as the man who saved the world. Mary Jane and Peter Parker see through this scheme while the general populace is praising Doctor Octopus for his ingenuity.

Peter takes all the new technology that he has been building and dons a brand new costume. The scene now switches over to the Avengers Mansion where the Avengers are divided on what exactly Doctor Octopus' motives are. Spider-Man shows up, clad in his new armor costume, and calls for the Avengers to assemble!

A spectacular start to "Ends of the Earth" 0

Dan Slott begins his first issue of the new End's of the Earth event with a bang!The Good:Man oh man! Slott has definitely brought Spidey up to a new level since he began writing for him. The issue starts off with a bang introducing some of Spiderman's "new" tech that he kinda ripped off one of his most popular villains. It's a treat to see how Spiderman can develop all of this tech and shows how brilliant he truly is given the time and resources to do so. Doc Ock is on the verge of death and hi...

Doctor Octopus Goes Global. 0

Synopsis: The end of the world comes sooner (or does it) as Doctor Octopus unleashes his ultimate plan.Well, it's finally here. But before I get into the main story, there were other story developments to take notice.Let me start by talking about both Peter and Spider-Man. He's been taking his "No one dies" policy quite seriously in the last couple of issues. On top of that, he really takes advantage of his resources at Horizon Labs making all sorts of gadgets and skills to help him fight (as if...

Comic Review -- Amazing Spider-Man #682: The Ends of the Earth, p 0

Originally posted on my blog, The Comics Cove, not too long ago...I think this cover is pretty clever, with Doc Ock's arms lashing Spidey over a planet-shaped globe. It certainly sets up the premise of the story, involving Dr. Octopus's apparent desire to save the planet vs. Spider-Man's steadfast distrust of him and anything he's involved in. Very dramatic, and a delight to behold.This story starts off with Peter talking about how many gadgets he's been making for himself as Spider-Man, while h...
