This is probably one for the staff or mods to decide but who should get tagged (linked as an appearance in issues) as Spidey in Superior Spider Man?


Should it be Doc Ock or Spider-Man. Obviously it's Otto's mind in there but it's still Spidey's body, identity and of course name! Plus it's a SPIDER-MAN comic! Maybe another option is to create a new character called Superior Spider-Man (not one I'm keen on).

@That60sGuy: It should be Doc Ock since it is him in...spirit.

We'll see when the actual first issue is released if we need to credit spidey, but we'll see. The body is the only suporting arguement since the ID and name can be stolen/borrowed from other characters.

and something which is less for you 60sguy and more for the reads of this thread in the future since I'm moving this to the editing section...we are not going to change Doctor Octorpus's name no matter how many times you ask :P

Technically you could make a case for both since it's Spider-Man's body just with a different mind.

Both would probably be a good idea.

It seem feasible to do both as you guys have said but then aren't we tagging two people when only one character appears in the issue? I say we let Dan Slott decide! Man am I gonna give him a hard time at London Comic Con! :)

There's a number of character pages on Comicvine that say something like "Tony Guerrero is the current Hero Bloke, previous Hero Blokes have been xyz" so maybe on Spider-Man's page under Current Events we can write Otto Octavius' mind is currently in Spider-Man's body or some such. Then keep tagging Spidey and let him rack up those appearances.

@fesak2 who can't use spoiler blocks said:

I think only ock should be credited since it's his body now.

apparently peter will appear as a ghost sometimes so those times he can be credited. Otherwise it will be confusing if someone wants to look up the issues where ghost peter appears.
