SUPERPOWERED CHARACTER APPLICATION
POWERS AND ABILITIES
Personality: For lack of a better word..miserable. Otto Octavius spent most of his life trapped between an overprotective and selfish mother and an abusive father who saw only physical strength as important. Otto was mostly bullied and shunned in school up to his college years. The only bright point was his work, his father's death, and meeting Mary Anders. But even that was short-lived. Now as Doctor Octopus he feels the only way to get validation is through fear and respect. He thinks people cannot change and has trouble in social situations. His hatred of Spider-Man and others like him possibly stems from his self-loathing.
Likes: Being Alone, His work, Reading, Trying to kill Spider-man. Terrorizing New York. Oreo cookies.
Dislikes: Children, Spiders human or otherwise, When his work goes unappreciated, Bright flashing Light, J Jonah Jameson.
History: Born in Schenectady, New York, to a lower-class family, only child Otto Octavius was to be raised by his overbearing mother and his abusive father. During his youth, Otto would often receive beatings at home, or school. His father would roar at Otto to use violence when dealing with bullies whilst his mother, on the other hand, always put Otto off using violence. Sometimes Otto's father would beat him during rages, earning Otto's hatred. During Otto's first year of school, Torbert died in a construction accident. During the funeral, Mary confided in her son that "an early death is the fate of a manual laborer" and expected that would go on to great things. Otto returned to school and threw himself into his studies. Otto's hard work paid off when he graduated at the top of his class
After graduating M.I.T., Otto was hired by the U.S. Atomic Research Center. To help manipulate radioactive substances from a safe distance, Otto constructed a chest harness controlling four mechanical, tentacle-like arms - earning him the nickname Doctor Octopus. At work, had fallen in love with a fellow researcher, Mary Alice Anders, and the two started dating. Eventually, Otto proposed marriage, which was accepted. Expecting a joyous reaction from his mother, he was surprised that she was against it. She accused Otto of turning his back on her (in truth her overprotective ways led her to think no woman was good enough for her son), causing him to break off his engagement. When Otto discovered his mother dating behind his back, he blew up in rage at her. During the argument, Mary died of a heart attack, leaving Otto with bitterness. Now he was without a girlfriend and held himself responsible for his mother's death.
Consumed with guilt, Otto couldn't fully focus during work, and volatile liquids exploded - bombarding the scientist with radiation. The substances left him capable of mentally controlling the arms, but the accident also caused irreversible brain damage - transforming the respected scientist into a megalomaniacal superhuman criminal.
Now two years after the accident that fused the arms to his spine and living lair to lair in his own world Otto found himself transported to some new fractured version of New York. Realizing that some sort of catastrophe has occurred with the space-time continuum he finds members from his own universe but from other times. Himself apparently from the past. Now he seeks to find the cause and return to his own time and space.
