> Yeah, that’s like describing the Hobgoblin as “some random fashion designer who keeps his weapons in a purse” or Doc Ock as “a tubby middle-aged glass-jawed physicist who uses his lab equipment to commit crimes”. If you word it right you can make any character sound silly. After all, Venom is just some guy wearing Spidey’s dirty laundry.

Well, sort of. I mean, he does have a bit of a point. At least Doc Ock and Venom have superpowers that give Spidey a lot of trouble, but I mean...the Jackal was just a middle age guy with a furry costume. It's a bit weird how he was able to slap Peter around like that.

It makes sense that Doc Ock can knock Spidey out with his tentacles. What didn't make sense was in PPTSSM Annual #1, where Doc Ock trapped Spidey inside a cargo hold (I think) on a ship, in which the walls were slicked-down so Spidey couldn't stick to the walls and thus couldn't get a "footing." Doc Ock used all of his tentacles to anchor himself to the walls, then punched out Spidey with his bare fists, using what he described as his "own not inconsiderable strength." Hello??
