So while Ock has been slowing creeping into Spidey's mind, the final switch happened after the Goblin War?

Peter has to rely on 10x losers like Hydro-man, Trapster & Scorpion to get his body back & set things right Yeah good luck with that.
I think the real question here is whether Peter and Ock really switched bodies, or if re-writing someone's brain patterns doesn't actually change who the person is so much as who they think they are.
It would be a really cruel twist if Pete pulled out the ultimate victory only to realize...he's not Peter Parker at all.
Whatever happens in ASM 700, I think there's enough pseudo-science here to give Slott or other writers a clean 'out' to bring Peter back should he die.

I thought it was odd when I read that Peter took interest in the lance Terminus had...that seemed so out of character for Peter at the time, to me.
I'm beginning to wonder if Osborn will show up at the last second of 700 and when Peter tries to switch bodies with doc ock again then there will be a three way switch with Norman ending up in Pete's body. Slott has to pay off the fact that Norman is gone from the hospital bed. Or maybe he is still in a coma just kidnapped by ock and when the switch happens maybe ock and Norman will share a body.

I think Slott's run has been fantastic thus far, but I was incredibly disappointed with this issue. While I'm still eagerly looking forward to the "Suicide Run" in Amazing Spider-Man #700, the delivery of this issue fell flat and seemed forced.
On the issue itself, this has the makings of the most pathetic Sinister Six ever assembled...
- at least Peter recognizes he's truly no better than a villain at this point.
- I wonder if Spidey and Ock have truly switched bodies...maybe there's more to it than this...
I actually really liked this issue...
Avengers Arena is one of the best books in the shops right now, it's seriously amazing.

Funny issue, MOST DISTURBING MOMENT IN SPIDEY HISTORY ended up being empty hype surprise surprise, couldn't escape that "middle-of-the-story" feeling. The issue is largely exposition, explaining the shocking reveal and setting up all the dominoes for the big Anniversary clash with all of Spidey's rogue's gallery and such. 'Eh.
Let's hope #700 is worth it.
and holy shit, I think this might be the saddest Sinister Six of them all. Paste-Pot Pete and Hydroman. Why don't you invite The Wall while you're at it?
I loved this issue. Slott, you are taking us down one crazy road and I'm worried in a good way. If that makes sense.
Also, I love how Scorpion, Trapster, and Hydroman are so cool about the whole thing. It's like this is a break for them or something LOL
I loved how no one thought "Gee, Morbius is a doctor, maybe that would be good to have around for a terminally ill crazy person?"
