"Doomsday Scenario"

Another tie-in to the AoU event where this time we focus on Spider-Man. This is the first time we are blatantly informed that this is definitely Otto and not Peter. He is really trying to figure out how, as one of the smartest people in the world according to himself, he will end Ultron. He claims that if he hadn't been asleep when Ultron took over he would have been able to stop him.

Otto runs a mission with the other surviving heroes to try to stop Ultron by dropping him in the Negative Zone. Of course this doesn't go too well or we wouldn't still have an event going but it shows a level of Otto giving up after being selfish doesn't exactly work out for him. As I said with the Fantastic Four tie-in. This issue isn't necessary at all to enjoy the overall event. I think it is nice that it is finally clear that it is Otto and not Peter and we can see how he is actually handling everything that is going on. The issue was a good read and as a Spidey fan I was happy. Give it a go if you want the full event or if you just like Spidey, if not you can pass it up and be okay.
