Dr. Otto Octavius was an atomic scientist. His peers gave him the name Doctor Octopus due to the four remote-controlled "arms" he had created to handle radioactive materials. During an experiment, an explosion caused the arms to be fused to Octavius. He also could control them with his mind as a side affect of the radiation blast. Now on the verge of insanity, Dr. Octopus begins his criminal career.

When J. Jonah Jameson's learns of the accident and the havoc caused by Dr. Octopus, he sends Peter Parker to obtain some pictures for the Daily Bugle. As Spider-Man, Peter battles Doc Ock with poor results. Doc Ock is able to escape.

Peter is left feeling down being defeated. Doc Ock returns to the research facility determined to gain control over a great amount of atomic energy. Soon the Fantastic Four are called in to attempt to stop Octavius. They have to decline due to other commitments.

Meanwhile, Peter is left feeling down being defeated. The Human Torch, recovering from a viral illness, keeps his commitment to speak to the students at Peter's high school. Upon hearing his speech, Peter is inspired to take on Doc Ock once again. This time Spider-Man is able to defeat Doc Ock.

The second cover is the Greg Land reprint promo for the 2004 movie tie-in.
