Otto was Oscorp's top scientist, second only to Norman Osborn. The two of them became close friends. Otto began working on the cross-species genetics program, which was previously run by Curt Connors and Richard Parker.

The Accident[]

Otto began using his tentacles to help work faster, and Norman had begun thinking of turning Otto into Spider-Man's worst enemy. When Otto was working on an electromagnetic material, Norman staged an accident that caused the tentacles to become one with Otto's spine and he went insane, blaming Osborn.

Doctor Octopus[]

Otto attempted to kill Norman, but Spider-Man intervened and saved him. The two battled for a long time and Otto kidnapped Harry Osborn, intending to kill him in order to torture Norman. This forced Norman to become the Green Goblin and attack Octopus. The two of them battled as Spider-Man brought Harry to safety. Osborn incapacitated Otto beginning his reign of terror.

Sinister Six[]

Otto went to prison, blaming Spider-Man for his failure. He set up an escape, along with five of Spider-Man's enemies. They escaped and attacked Spider-Man, but he had joined the S.H.I.E.L.D. Training Prorgram, so each of them had one on one battles. Ock ended up fighting Spider-Man and he would have won, had Spitfire not intervened and saved him. Otto and the others were brought back to prison, but they remained a team.
