Well the atrocity known as Superior Spider-Man has finally ended and....
....Doctor Octopus is out as Spider-Man and our beloved Peter Parker is back in.
or is he?
Im bothered by something.
You know what also bothers me about the resolution? I have the nagging feeling that Peter, the real Peter is still dead. Here's why I think this. In Amazing 700 we saw Peter, in Ock's body, slipping in and out of the afterlife. Then he has the final confrontation with Octavious where he instilled his morals in him. Then, AFTER, this mind merger Peter STILL in Ock's body exchanges final words with Octavius and then dies. Later on an imprint of Peters mind shows up in Superior Spider-Man and gets control of the body back at the end of the comic. I feel like Peter, the real Peter, his actual soul died in Ock's body and has gone to the afterlife and this new Peter is just a photocopy of Peters mind that simply existed in his psyche.
have I overthought this?
I'll do a review of the whole series and and share my deeper thoughts on it if anyone's interested in hearing them. I just had to say my piece on Superiors resolution.
