For thirteen, aggravating for some, months, Doctor Octopus has been jumping around New York in Peter Parker's body. Next to nobody was aware, and Peter's social (and heroic) life will be very interesting when he comes back. He'll find himself estranged from Mary Jane Watson (even more than they were following "Brand New Day"), distant from Aunt May, and dating a little person coworker he doesn't even know!

It's been over thirty issues with no Petey around and, as the stories stand today, his fellow players are beginning to notice. Puny Parker can only yell "The die is cast!!" and call everyone "insolent" while they try to help him so many times before they realize something is amiss.
Personally, I've enjoyed the Ock stories, knowing full well they would be temporary in some way. I don't know how Peter will return, but I wouldn't be upset if there ended up being two Spideys swinging around.
What side do you fall on, Fanboys/girls? Team Pete? Team Otto?
