    Default Doc Ock's tentacles

    The original arms were destroyed years ago, right? I haven't kept up with Spidey except what I hear about, these days.

    I only know that during Erik Larsen's time on the Spider-Man titles, Octavius had adamantium tentacles.

    I believe the first, to my knowledge, destruction of tentacles, occurred in The Lethal Foes of Spider-Man #1 (1993).

    Other previous occassions, such as Spectacular Spider-Man #75 (1983) may have just been the ripping of tentacles, only for re-welding them back, as well as for the adamantium, reinforcing over them.

    I liked how spooky it was when the arms were seperated from Ock, but he could still control them, sometimes over hundreds of miles.

    THAT, however's been a thing since Amazing Spider-Man #88, 1970.

    As well as the most dramatic tentacle meltdown - Ultimate Spider-Man #59. It only took until the third outing for Nick Fury to no longer take any crap about Octavius' business with his tentacles - melted them before his very eyes - and pain!

    Yep, that's the one I was thinking of, though it first happened in annual #1 (first Sinister Six). Maybe it would be better these days if Ock had just died, but his arms kept on going, with a sort of residual conciousness.
