    In his last post he seems to imply what he said was in jest and he actually likes Slott's writing.

    So we can expect all these angry Peter Parker fans to apologize to Slott if it turns out that the conclusion of this story is a triumphant Peter Parker return?

    It's called "joking". You may have heard of it.

    Yeah, you can read it that way, but the exchange does seem rather bitter and rather sarcastic. At least as bitter as a written post can be without using cursing as a crutch.

    They will not have left...like SW writes...they are probably waiting for Superior with bated breath.

    Eh. He compliments him the next post, and it's an ambiguous burn at best. He always plays both side too.

    No? Why should I apologize for him wasting a dozen issues and requiring the use of yet another stupid plot twist. Shall we get another genetic actor? Or perhaps he was really sent through time. My money is on his consciousness still being in that little gold Octobot.

    Two words that are basically non-applicable to Stan the Man.

    Maybe, Though this is something only Stan knows, I guess.

    Going by stuff I've read, Stan has a wicked sense of humor. Plus, the Tweet does imply he's joking.

    This is what I believe too...and until Doc Ock does the right thing by returning Peter to his body and put himself in the octbot he will always be the villian.

    Of course that could be how Peter ends up returning.

    Remember that scene in the most recent Avenging .1 when Ock decides not to stop that thief ("This is beneath me, isn't it?"), and suddenly his arm shoots out to clothesline the guy? Ock is surprised, and assumes it's because Parker's body is used to stopping bad guys. I don't think so... I think that was the first obvious hint that Parker is still inside there.

    I was thinking about that classic 1960's Stan Lee-written scene where Parker raids Doc Ock's undersea lab to get some cure for Aunt May, who is dying. The lab explodes (of course), trapping Parker underneath an enormous amount of debris while the lab floods and Doc Ock gloats. Parker realizes that it's all over.

    But then he thinks about Aunt May and about how she'll die if he doesn't get up and get out of there and he manages to summon horrendous strength to get out. He saves the day, as always.

    I'm almost 95 percent sure that the current storyline is identical to that storyline, except much more elaborate and much longer. Eventually Ock is going to fail, and he's going to realize that Parker always was "Superior." And in the process, we'll get to explore through Ock's perspective all the ways that Parker is the greatest hero around. Like in #700 when Ock punches Scorpion's jaw off and marvels at the strength that Parker had. He assumes that Parker never realized his full potential. Wrong... Parker didn't punch bad guy's jaws off because he's a hero and heroes don't permanently disfigure bad guys.

    It's hard to watch Slott do this to Peter Parker because, like everyone, I'm a huge fan of Peter Parker. But a hero's story wouldn't be nearly as compelling if the hero never had to face unbeatable odds and certain defeat.
