6. The “Superior” Spider-Man


Last year, a dying Doctor Octopus managed to transfer his consciousness into Spider-Man’s body, effectively killing Peter Parker. The current status quo in the comic books is that Otto Octavius is the “Superior” Spider-Man, having taken over Peter’s life and secret identity.

That’s not something which is sitting well with fans, the majority of whom are eagerly anticipating the return of the real deal. While his violent and often disturbing actions as Spidey have led to suspicion from The Avengers and Peter’s loved ones, Doc Ock has so far managed to get away with stealing the life of his greatest enemy, and a version of this storyline would be undeniably fascinating to see play out on the big screen.
