“Intelligence is not a privilege, it’s a gift, and you use it for the good of mankind.”– Dr. Octavius
Otto has devoted his ‘entire life’s work’ to researching and building a sustainable fusion power reactor. He has become so obsessed with carrying out his vision, even when the reactor starts to go nuclear and sucks metal into it, threatening the lives of his investors, the public, and his own wife, Otto insists it will stabilize—stubbornly clinging to his ideal version of the reactor, rather than the brutal reality that… it is too dangerous to leave powered-up. Even after his accident, which involves his wife’s death as a result of his recklessness, “Doc Oc” goes back to his original idea of creating a fusion power reactor, and steals money to fund his research. He stubbornly refuses to give up on his idea, which he has developed for the good of humanity. He early on tells Peter that intelligence is a gift, and you should use it for the betterment of mankind. He has a “Fe” focus in how he includes his wife in his successes and points out how he could not have built it, or the mechanical arms, without her. Once he fuses into the malevolent arms due to the safety chip’s meltdown, Doc Oc references the multiple intelligences as “we.” He finds ways to threaten people, to draw Spider-Man to him. Fortunately, Peter is able to bring his humanity back, by reminding him of his true purpose, his desire to serve mankind for the better, and asking for his help in destroying the nuclear reactor. Otto’s last words are, “I will not die a monster” (an objective view of the impact his actions have had upon other people) as he drags it down upon himself and drowns.

Otto is ambitious and something of a workaholic, single-minded, goal-oriented, and won’t take no for an answer. Faced with the realization that his idea, his life’s work, is unsustainable and even dangerous, he cannot admit to his mistake and insists it will be all right in a minute, it just needs time to stabilize. Though devastated by his wife’s death, he soon goes back to work on his projects in an attempt to avoid his feelings. Otto is self-confident and even arrogant, willing to bend and break the rules to make things happen… but also has a genuine desire to make the world better for everyone in it. People he has never met and will never know, but that could benefit from sustainable power.
