February 18, 1995, “Doctor Octopus: Armed and Dangerous” marked the birth of Doctor Octopus’ on the ’90s series, and his first debut in animation since the early 1980s. Marvel execs Avi Arad and Stan Lee are provided with the plot, while Brooks Wachtel and Cynthia Harrison have the teleplay credit. Interestingly enough, one element of this story seems to have influenced Octopus’ character in 2004’s Spider-Man 2 film, which was also brought into existence by Arad.

Date has gone wrong

The episode is inaugurated with Peter Parker awkwardly entering the mansion owned by Felicia Hardy’s family, predicting their first date. Before the date starts, she’s abducted by a character the audience has to treat as some crazy psychopath with four mechanical arms. While it’s clear that it’s Dr. Octopus, we’re dealing with his origin story in this canon.

Otto Octavius’ Marvel Universe origin as an atomic scientist doesn’t work in the 1990s, so it’s revamped to give him a connection to the Hardy family. Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, who created Dr. Octopus for 1963’s Amazing Spider-Man #3, were essentially flying by the seat of their pants. Connecting the origins of various villains to members of Peter’s supporting cast wasn’t much of a concern then. It was enough to know that Ock was a victim of an accident that also drove him mad.
